Thank you for that info! I was wondering why the different ratings. does the piston have a dome on it? For the snow commander of course.

Toro ccr2000, 3000(2) and 3650(2)

Oh and a couple s-200's and borrowing an Ariens 724

Looking for suggestions on professional two stage that can handle big snow. Dont need a super wide cut.

I bought a Toro 3650 new in 2005, it's been able to handle any amount of snow with ease. And i just found a 2006 Lawn Boy Insight 1000 (model 33006). They are the same except for the chute control and the handles are padded and adjustable on the LB. Also the recoil on the LB is the better D shape. And the servicing is easier on the LB as the chute crank is in the way on the Toro 3650. Both are great machines and will give a two stage blower a run for the money. These machines can throw snow 35 feet and have cruised through drifts higher the the chute, and will clean snow down to bare pavement.

I thought I would post some pictures of my recently found 2006 Lawn Boy Model 33006/ Insight 1000E comparing it to my 2005 Toro Model 38518/ CCR3650.
