For the multi snowblower Owners?

For a couple of years now I have given some thoughts to getting a little single stage blower to go a long with the bigger two stage machine.

I can see sometimes where it would come in handy.

So do we have such Owners around here that own both a big/small blower, in area that gets 4'-5' of snow per year?

Would you do it again?

We bought a Simplicity SS922EX last year and I can't tell you how happy we are with the purchase. So much so, I almost bought ANOTHER one to become a 3 snowblower family. With all the snow last year, we probably used it about 10 times or so. It was good for all but the largest snowfall we received (10" with 2 foot + drifts). I think I only broke out the Compact 24 once. In reality, I should probably replace the Compact 24, which I purchased before the Simplicity, and get something larger since it tends to struggle with the larger snow totals. I would LOVE a 24 SHO with the accessory tracks but hard to drop that kind of cash to use it only one or two times per year.

its really nice to have both, a single stage machine and a two stage machine. but its good to know that the single stage machine can get the job done if there is a problem with the two stage machine. last year i unknowingly got some bad gas and after refilling the 521 it stopped so i got the 826 out fill it up and it stopped after 20 minutes. it was slow going but the 2450E got the job done

current machines
1-toro2450E-38419. 1-toro3000E-38435. 1-toro 3650E-38445
2-toro 521E-38052. 1-toro xl824pt 38086
1-.............,TORO XL 624ps..............

Have a few of both laying around... But since selling a bunch of them ( one just a couple hours ago) I'm down to a Toro 521 two stage and an Ariens 522 ss. I'll keep these for my personal use this winter. Next winter, who knows?

Having a small SS unit, IME, is great for smaller snow falls and cleaning down to bare pavement. We've got a very steep drive and the SS unit leaves the pavement clean so I don't have melting/re-freeze issues over night.

Your last 4 words are the truth, I'm already looking forward to next years purchases if I have any issues this winter. Have to figure out where to stash them so the wife doesn't know.

Lol. My wife doesn't care how many I buy or how much I spend. She knows that I love tinkering with small machinery and since I usually make a few bucks she doesn't mind a'tall.
I've sold 4 blowers in the past month. She's happy.
