    Ken,
    I feel you pain. In '93 I was renting a tiny house, over in Fairfield, that had a sidewalk with a curb on one side and 2 feet of grass on the other, then the porch. We had a huge March...

    Buying Advice Re: Front snowblower

    L5460 with a 74" front blower sounds like a great combination.
    Just double check your tire track width - especially if you're planning on getting wide tires like R4s or turfs.
    Make sure you're...

    So tip velocities would be:

    545*(3.14*20)/60 = 570 in/sec = 47.5 ft/sec

    545*(3.14*24)/60 = 685 in/sec = 57.1 ft/sec

    Kinetic energy is proportional to velocity squared, so (57.1^2)/(47.5^2) =...
