We had 7+" new SNOW Wed-Thur morning. Used my 10hp Ariens snowblower for the cleanup. Dun in about 2 1/2 hrs. Tidied up with plow on atv and good to go. Was -4* too with lite wind from N. Brrrrr. Never had a headlight go out on the Ariens & it's about 20+ yrs old. Great Machine. Never needed chains either in any kind of snow conditions.

First machine was a 10 hp Wheel Horse, lasted 35+ years.  the Ariens is 10 hp and about 20.  Only problem is wheels have rusted to the shaft after just 5 years, dealer couldn't even fix it, so a little tough to steer.  But good overall.  no chains either.

Mine has no head light and I never put chains on it. But it doesn't throw very far anymore.


LOL

A light aluminum shovel will allow further throws with maximum capcity.

I'm with D. 

I have a snow blower but I don't use it unless the snow is pretty deep. I definatly don't move snow in the dark. If it gets dark I figire it'll keep until morning. 

I upgraded my aluminum scoop shovel to one of the new fangled plastic ones. I'm not sure if it's lighter or smaller but it seems like it's easier to throw a full scoop of snow with it.

I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.
