I've used mine twice this season, once was last night just to move some snow quick before having to take off.

Problem here has been the bitter cold, not the snow. Hopefully spring is coming someday.

Nothin' but a dusting here in coastal NH. But.. that's OK with me THIS time as my machine is not quite ready, been too busy. Weekend almost here :-) Tomorrow the new Predator 8hp 301cc will be getting some more idling time with some small throttle-ups here and there. I opened up the jets a tiny bit and it seems to run nice, had it idling today a little and by tomorrow afternoon it will be ready for reinstalling the belts and chute. Then an oil change/ Mobil1. After that I'm ready BRING IT ON !! :-) I see next thursday we have potential for a nor'easter so maybe,with some luck, have some fun then. Keeping fingers crossed!

We had some of your snow effect but just roughly 3" and combined with 30 mph winds and cold, the drifts being close to a foot high made me pass the snow blower with my sulky, had as much snow on my tuque after 2 hours of blowing. Oh well complain when it's too cold or too hot in summer, we shall prevail!

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.
