Wow - forgot how much the World has changed since I was a little kid when I would spend a whole day blowing snow for neighbors just to pocket $10 and be able to bowl for money the whole next day, and pocket another $10. Never thought about having a lawyer on my staff !

Okay I have found two options.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...8963253175252/

I assume that one will be the popular choice due to the brand.

Or this one

Or this one... smaller motor but has that anti clogging...

At least take a look at the Ariens. The Toro will always be there. The Hydro Pro is sweet and nicely balanced. Maybe he will negotiate a bit on price. You will be giving up some HP in going with the Toro, although I've never seen anyone here complain about the Toro's.

They have the same motor unless I'm missing something... The other reason for the Toro is the no need for shear pins. I am very new to snowblowers though so I'm not sure

Yes the 1428 does have the bigger motor. At first I thought you were looking at the HD1028, lol

Before you spend any hard earned money take a look at the Ariens Pro 28 926077 :https://www.ariens.com/en-us/snow-pr...s/professional

I've been behind both machines and I like the balance and controls more on the Ariens. But that's me and I think both are excellent machines, it comes down to which machine feels right to you.
