Hi guys….
Sorry somehow I missed your replies. I don’t know how!!
I have a 10 hp Craftsman…(mtd I assume) I’m on my second one in over 30 years. They have worked just fine, I jus am always afraid of falling on ice and with a another driveway, I’ll have a fair amount of blowing to do. I have a 40×40 apron/pad now with a 50’x 12’ drive way and I’m probably going to add a 75’ narrower drive to boot. I wear yak tracks…on my boots, but I always seem to have one torn off some how.

I guess I really don’t have any complaints on my walk behind, so maybe you are right, but it looks good sitting on ur a$$, I guess.

I have been reading the complaints on line about the tractor mounted. On Lowes.com they have husqvarna and only have a 57% approval, with one complaint being the electric lifts freeze. I have often wondered if that is a place where people go to “grind their axes” or they are accurate. I am in need of a new tractor and thought this could be a good answer. As for the ‘cabs”, it seems like no matter which direction you blow, it comes back in your face, but I have heard many times that they are difficult at best. I was hoping to get some advice from someone that actually had these items….

Mike, funny story, I worked as a policeman at night in a small town for 38 years. ( I have a business during the day too)....the neighboring town is large and they got a new Chief that was from Florida. I was at a meeting with him the first day we got a pretty sizable snow storm. He wanted to know if we had a huge suicide problem in the winter…..when I told him no, he was surprised. He lasted 3 years and went back to Florida….

Thanks again guys….I appreciate your input.
