Great price, $699 strong engine, cuts through heavy wet snow first time out. Machine is heavy and reverse is almost non existent. Do like the 305cc Briggs & Stratton engine. It’s a work horse not a sports car.

Welcome to the forum.
What do you mean "reverse is almost non existent"?

It’s very slow from what I’ve heard, Sure you can adjust it to speed it up a little.

Many snowblowers have 2 reverse does, this model has only 1.

If reverse is slower than you'd prefer, you can likely adjust the gear-selection linkage/cable to bias it for a little faster reverse, at the expense of slowing the forward speeds a bit. Just make sure that after an adjustment, the first forward speed still moves it forward. Otherwise the rubber friction wheel will just sit in-place and wear away, with the transmission engaged in 1st gear forward.
