    Why did you not just make some taller skids for you blower to ride on. The wheels will not work if you get into a hard snow drift since they are wider than your blower.

    The blower actually comes with a second set of adjustable skids that were raised. Unfortunately, even they sank into the ground. I don't have that problem with the wheels.

    Great video. Now all you gotta do is get your remote chute rotator and deflector hooked up and you're all set!

    Okay, it's been several years since I bought the Braber snowblower. It has not seen a tremendous amount of heavy-duty usage, but the times I have needed it, it performed like it did when I first got it. The only negative that I can say is that the fill plug for the gearbox is not the easiest to get to. I mentioned that to one of the managers at Braber and he agreed and said it would not be hard to fix. Whether or not they have addressed that, I do not know. The good news is that when I checked the gearbox last month, it was still at the full level, so no leaks

    I know freight is a killer on these heavy items. I see where Northern Tools is adding more stores all of the time. Not sure if it's cheaper to have it shipped to their store or not, might be worth asking if you are interested in one.

    I went out today to clean the lane off and realized we didn't get quite enough snow to blow. In back of the house, it was deeper and I was able to clear a good path with the snowblower. People have asked about negatives on this brand. I once again realized that unless you actually see the auger or pto turning, there is no way to tell that it's even engaged. It makes absolutely no noise at all (that I can hear above the engine running) and it does not shake or vibrate at all. This is probably a good thing but I can also imagine someone possibly getting hurt. I typically think of pto attachments as being loud. Since this is the only pto-driven snowblower I have ever owned, I don't know whether this is normal or not. I just assumed that all implements make some sound or vibration. Maybe not, just an observation.

    Hope everyone has a safe and blessed New Year!
