    I've used it at my house to blower off the car or sidewalk. But like you said, it has to be a light fluffy snow. I have a large driveway and its faster to use a shovel than the blower.(I've tried).

    If you've got a small house or just a walk its great if you keep up with the snow. How bout a walkbehind blower? Anyone ever tried that?

    Im in the DC area and we always run with one. I use them if the snow is light but we primarly use them to blow off the cars. Have tryed the walkbehind blower, not worth it. We use the toro ccr 3000, great machines for what we usualy get down here.
