    Probably fine for flat areas. What do you do on hills though?

    Needs a CAB!!! lol!

    Isn't that a "bad boy" mower? I thought I read a rumor that they had gone, or were going under?

    I really wanted a blower for a new Dixon this winter but the maker of them has just begun production of them! Should be out in june or july... How stupid!

    I think A blower, or even a blade, on a ZTR mower is really cool. So much easier to get into any area with something that can move in almost any direction. Perfect for driveways and sidewalks!

    I dont do snow removal, but had thought if I ever got into that buisness that a blower would be better on residential drives. With a blade you have to push the snow straight ahead more or less and I would think you would have some shovel work. Witht he blower I would think that you could discharge the snow left or right and when you got the house there wouldnt be a pile of snow left like with a blade.
