Hi everyone, I'm a new homeowner looking to invest in snowblower. I've been doing a lot of reading and research and I've basically narrowed it down to the PowerMax 826 OXE and the SnowMaster 824 QXE. I live in the suburbs near Boston where I believe we average over 50". Seems like everyone loves the Snowmaster and I was leaning towards that one, but I'm worried I'm going to need a 2 stage for my area. They are priced almost the same, so price is irrelevant to me. Would love to see what you guys thought. Thanks.
