I've been given the task of purchasing a new snowblower for my aunt. She is 5'4 120lbs. We live near Lake George, NY. Currently she shovels her 2000' driveway. She has an older Simplicity 870s. She said the 870s is too big and heavy for her. I've got $1000 to spend. I think the power/auto steering would be perfect. And two-stage is a must. I've narrowed my choices down to the Ariens Deluxe 24 with auto turn or the Husqvarna ST224P. I am leaning towards the Ariens because I have 3 dealers in about a 10 mile radius. But the Husqvarna has adjustable handles and seems to be more user friendly (based only on youtube videos). I wanted to hear some opinions before I buy something. Sorry for the long post just wanted to give the whole situation. Thanks in advance!
