No, I don't mind at all. It was just a bit over $7,100, installed and with the smartlock. I saw a lot of used one's online ranging from $3,000-4,5000. I went new for a couple reasons. I financed most of it, not wanting to tie up my funds for the upcoming landscaping season. Also, 2 year warranty. Plus, besides regular maintenance, plows tend to last for a while.

To be honest, and this is just my opinion, if you don't have the work to justify a plow, stick with the blower. The work may be harder, but run some numbers and I bet you come out on top with greater profit. Save that up plus add the accounts for next year and buy a plow then.

I was debating between just buying a $600 blower and doing a few drives and walks, but then the work turned up and it made sense to get the plow.

Just my opinion though.

Good Luck,
