Power Max HD 1128

We got our first good dump of snow last night and I got a great work out as did my new Toro, 12 in. of wet heavy snow is not the greatest way to brake in a new engine but ran like a top. I need to improve on my skill a bit more. I know it takes hp to move wet snow and this bad boy has it. Did a review also here are a couple of pictures.

Don't worry about Break-in on that engine. The Briggs is broken in fully at the factory. All you need to do is abuse vast volumes of snow with it

Great pics BTW! We are under a snowfall warning here...finally! Should get to use it twice to keep the snow at bay. Weeeeeeeee
