The last walk-behind John Deere snowblowers were made in 2011.
the line has been dropped..
Briggs & Stratton took over the JD walk-behind snowblower "name" in 2005, and they dropped the line in 2011. There are no plans to revive it.
JD dealers are now selling Honda snowblowers instead.

And plastic impellers is always a horrible idea..I cant imagine JD would even consider it! If they are, its a terrible decision..but its all about cutting costs these days..

Some cheaper ones already do. I remember seeing a youtube video and someone said they put an impeller kit on a plastic impeller and it has held up for a couple years. It might have been sixtyfiveford. I wouldn't want plastic for mine though.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.
