Hey Buzzard, I had a set of those on my Yamaha Warrior and they worked extremely well! They allowed me to ride all winter with thin, uninsulated riding gloves without a problem because they completely blocked all of the heat-sucking wind and, as a bonus, kept small twigs and stuff from slapping my hands while I rode - not that you will have a problem with that while blowing snow...lol. To be fair, keep in mind that while riding, my hands were almost always lifting, pulling and generally putting the "grip-of -death" on my handlebars (heh heh) so there was always plenty of body heat and ample circulation (aka fear induced high blood pressure) which probably wont be the case, again, while snow-blowing your driveway. But yes, I LOVED mine!

I completely agree with the mitten idea. At the end of last winter, since neither of my walk-behind blowers have a stator, therefore no hand warmers, I grabbed my "


" out of my bowhunting gear (out of desperation) and they were the perfect answer! They keep my hands toasty but also have the option to peel back the fingertips if I need to do any dexterity-type work. Highly recommended!


Best of luck
TJ

The weather in Flint has been BOOOOORRIINNNGG!
Not any snow to even speak of. Swept my driveway ONCE with a lousy broom. We've had a bit of freezing rain lately but that's about it. Just blazin at the bit to use my walk-behinds or my new-to-me John Deere 420 with a 46" snow-thrower or the 54" blade. I'm like a kid with new toys who can't play with them. lol. It's lookin like we are expecting some rain this week with temps up in the mid 40s.

Rocky's is like a manly man toy store - lol. Love that place. I try to stay away because I spend money when I go there. Regardless of whether I actually need anything. You know the drill.

Stomping around in the snow usually keeps me pretty warm, but typically my face and my hands freeze. I've used just about everything you can think of to keep my hands warm. I don't think I've ever come inside because my hands were too hot - the more the better!
