    Yes 61 HP, and NO, it's not low on horse power for pushing snow at all!

    In case you've been under a rock the last year, everyone interested in buying equipment in the near future should read this brief article in Lawn and Landscape Mag.

    http://www.lawnandlandscape.com/ll10...equipment.aspx

    What this boils down to is my machine would be a relative bargain as opposed to buying a new machine after Jan 1, 2013. Not only that but Bobcat said they will look very similar to the old machines, but cost much more. Also... the new engines sound like they will be harder to service as well...mo $$$ mo $$$.

    Still asking $29000...Seriously considering raising this price after the 1st of the year.
