Settled on Simplicity 1730

I have a local dealer that is highly recommended and have used him for chainsaw service but never considered him for a snow blower because I was not looking at Simplicity. After a few people telling me I should look at Simplicity I went over to take a look. The owner asked me what me needs where and my budget. He then went through all the machines and showed me the H1730E. He explained to me it was last years model and it fell into my budget. Its a big motor and big machine but perfect for my driveway.

Just about any machine will perform well … It is mainly all about how it is handled, maintained and stored. A well taken care of machine will give you years of operating smoothness.

That goes for not only snow blowers, but mowers, chippers, chain saws, pressure washers, etc., etc,...……

I have a brother in law that ruined a John Deere rider that cost him thousands, just by not taking care of it.

I couldn't agree more! I have a john deer rx75 from the 89 that runs like a top! I love that mower.

Not to get off topic, but my Craftsman rider is also from around 89 , 90… I have worn the front tires out and replaced, wore out the deck and replaced, also wore out spindles and tie rods, replaced … welded the hood bracket where it broke from the years of opening and closing , replaced the worn out seat … still running and looking great. …. I put the mulching gator blades on it years ago, and the double bagger plastic bins are the best … takes care of all my leaves.
