    We use walk-behinds in our Boston neighborhood. Our latest is on the right: an Ariens RapidTrack Pro 28 (hydrostatic) with a 420cc Briggs with 21 lb ft of torque. And heated hand grips. The Honda is a 928 track, also hydrostatic, with the GX270.

    We do three driveways and a few hundred feet of sidewalk most storms.

    Not sure where you are in NB, we're West of Moncton. We lost every bit of snow we Had, also lost all the hard pack on our gravel drive! Ugh

    Like Poncho62 said, don't worry, the freeze will return! Here in S. New England we too went thru a thaw and heavy rain and all the snow is gone but the frost is back, the ground is hard and the snow is coming Wed.

    Never having used a walk-behind I have to ask - what is the advantage of the tracks? I usually think of agriculture where they are great for traction and flotation but flotation is certainly not what you are concerned about and I would think a grip tire would give you plenty of traction. Plus I would think the tracks would be harder to turn with.

    kubota B2620 with FEL, blower and rear hydraulic angle blade. And the 2004.5 Polaris sportsman 500 H.O. with Glacier Razor quick attach plow.

    Both have been 100% reliable and fun to use. Also very low fuel useage. I don't even use the plow trucks at home. This is how I relax.....play with the toys.

    I just got a new Honda 928 couple days ago and i can confirm that it is much harder to turn around. Manually that is! With the engine running it's just as easy as the Toro i have, as long as you pull the lever...
    It will however push through snow without riding up onto the snow and will push right on through it. The Honda is definitely something to get used to, but after an hour i got it figured out without having any issues.

    Haven't used 'em myself, but I can see where they'd have advantages. Key would be reliable and easy to use drive-controls. Until you get into really big walk-behinds, tire-chains for wheeled units are a good idea up here, to deal with the limited contact area of wheels.

    Nobody likes to deal with flat tires on anything, but they're esp. irritating on a blower in the dead of Winter..... at 5:30am....

    Main downside I can see of track-drive is additional cost. Given Boston snow loads, I can understand spending the money though.

    It is more important to understand Fizx than to know how to spell it.
