1800 electric

Just bought a nice 724 for my heavy storms, and i was looking for something simple and reliable for the up to 4 inch or so snowfalls. Is a used 1800 a good option? Can paddles and belts be easily replaced and at a reasonable cost? Thanks in advance.

I have a 1800 electric I use on my second story deck. Works good for that. This past winter I used it on my driveway (3 cars wide and 3 cars long). It worked OK. Dealing with the cord was a bit cumbersome, but I think if one did it enough and developed a "system" it would go easier. As far as performance, it did a pretty good job for what it is. I picked up another one off CL real cheap. Needs a new plug in, one of the spades is chared to a crisp, but it does work. I got the new plug from Toro yesterday. Tomorrow I will replace it and wait till fall and resell it
