I am on LI, NY and bought a "dealer" model 28 SHO had it shipped in from out of state (much cheaper than local....unfortunately). This thing is a beast, it threw that last storm of wet, frozen, EOD crude with ease. All the neighbors troy-bilts were clogging every 20 feet. I was truly impressed with this blower...so glad I researched here and pulled the trigger. You will use those gift cards on plenty of other projects real soon.
