Chicago Man Looking for a New SnowBlower

Hi,
I just now joined the forum. Moved into a new house just a couple of weeks ago and would be the first time blowing snow. Lived in a townhouse for past 8 years and apartments before that so have no idea on what to look into a snowblower other than reading this forum that the snowblower has to be 2 stage for a big driveway. I have a 3 car wide driveway. My budget is not more than 450 - 500 for the snowblower.

Please suggest.

- Sava

Welcome, and with all your particulars that you have mentioned, I would consider the Ariens Snowtek series. And if you are mechanically inclined then you may also consider a used machine.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.
