I can't believe no one has a Areins Sno Tek snow blower . We bought ours last year just before the 30" of snow hit NY . Had to drive all the way to Home Depot in PA from Long Island to get one. Got it for under $400 since it was fixed do to the recall which knocked $100 off the price then with my sisters military discount. Big talk was if the Chinese LCT engine could do the job but it's a Areins and sure did. We got the 24" model with electronic start and it worked great, went right through the 30” of snow.
