I purchased this unit used with a 38" mower deck and a snowblower with the taller chute. I have not used the mower deck yet and since we have had a very mild winter as opposed to last year, I have only used the blower twice. Our driveway is 300' long and is double wide for approximately 60' and then a double wide turn around. In addition, the driveway is on a 45 degree uphill angle.
The first storm was only about 7 inches and the second just under 5 inches. I can tell you that this machine ate up every bit of snow and did not even hiccup on the up passes.
Overall, I believe this machine will serve our family well and look forward to putting the plow on that I recently purchased for Spring clean up and grading.
I couldn't find a cab for it so I QUICKLY put something together to keep me dry. I will revisit this project in the Summer when it's warmer to work on!
