Greatest Distance Traveled For A Snowblower?

I've gone 50 miles to buy but would go more for the right deal.

I had a guy come 600 miles for one I was selling.

Wow. That's a long drive.
I sent my son out on a journey to pick up some parts once.

I have never mentioned this before because nobody would believe it. He flew in, rented a vehicle to pick up and drove home.

he did mention that he owned multiple property rentals .Probably many.

That still sounds like a pretty darn good deal, even with the driving!

My furthest so far has only been under an hour. But depending on the deal, I'd be willing to go further.

I drove about 420 miles round trip to pick up a Troy Bilt Tracker 2690 XP for my son in December, but also visited friends along the way. I've driven 1,280 miles round trip to Mississauga, Ontario to pick up a motorcycle, and over 1,300 miles round trip to Erie, PA to pick up a boat, though...

I drove about 2 hours, one way, for my 1964 Wheel Horse:



because I wanted that specific model!
and the price was right..exactly what I wanted.
