It is a great feeling when your snow goes higher and further than your neighbours, we all are watching every one else.

Not me a'tall. I could care less. I'm not very fond of blowing snow and the last thing I care about is who has the biggest, most powerful machine. Just get 'er done and get back inside.

Yeh, but,...... Well, no use for me to sugarcoat it. It's only the truth.
I did notice some guy out last afternoon. He was running an old Ariens. Wasn't throwing snow very far but it was running at least. Beyond that I didn't see nor care who was running what. Just the way it is.
But I really like those skids I made for the Toro. So smooth! Wasn't concerned that I might hit a high sidewalk or anything else. Just ran along so smooth.

Nice to be the recipient of 'Rooster Tail Envy'?

Sometimes it is rewarding to see that unpleasant jackass of a neighbor struggling with the snow, when it is much easier for me. Or to help that neighbor who it nice to everyone, or the older folks who can't easily fend for themselves in the bad weather.

It is of course petty to want to help the people that we choose, and to do so on our own terms, but to some degree it is human nature..

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)
