The one I have is from lowes. The only reason I bought it is because I figured why but something expensive if I am going to buy a plow soon so I went cheap. It does its job but I would not recommend it. Im not sure how long it is going to last. I would stick with another Airens just get one that is more powerful. The spreader is a lawncrafter or something. I got it at a yard sale for $5 and its only use is for sidewalks. Eventually I want to get a Lesco I just saw one last night at a Trade Show I was at and there pretty nice.

Yea Toro and Ariens are definitly good brands that will last. Troy Bilt may be good and cheaper but I don't think they will last as long as a Commercial toro or Ariens blower. Plow at the earliest wot be till next fall. I could buy oe now but it would only make me the same amount of money that a blower would so I want to wait till next year ad then get some lots or bigger drives.

Dude that great that you payed off the plow already. I did pretty good for those four storms. I was thinking of getting a plow but I only do drives right now and a plow wouldnt make me any more moey really right now so I figured I would wait until next year to get a plow. But I am definitly ready for spring if we get one or two more storms ill be happy.

I made it down there a day late and just went to some of the other class they had down there so I never actually took the ICPI classes but took other classes about the business side of stuff. I think Im going to that MAHTS thing in a few weeks ad will just take some classes about pavers and walls then.

But if you know anyone down anear you selling a dump insert let me kow I am in the market for one.
