JonesRed 305cc from Costco
Great price, $699 strong engine, cuts through heavy wet snow first time out. Machine is heavy and reverse is almost non existent. Do like the 305cc Briggs & Stratton engine. It’s a work horse not a sports car.

If reverse is slower than you'd prefer, you can likely adjust the gear-selection linkage/cable to bias it for a little faster reverse, at the expense of slowing the forward speeds a bit. Just make sure that after an adjustment, the first forward speed still moves it forward. Otherwise the rubber friction wheel will just sit in-place and wear away, with the transmission engaged in 1st gear forward.
