And the time of year, would be my guess. Come spring, when folks start taking to the roads, the traffic over there will pick up.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

Great idea!

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