    Brought out the RedMax 7001 last night....we got 4 inches of the nice, medium to light snowfall, and did all of our paths and the driveway in less than half the time it would have taken with a shovel (and far more fun)!

    Chevyman1 -- We had the same (4" of fluff), dragged the Toro 2 cycle out of the shed and made quick work of it.. Was a fun day here, wife and I put up a x-mas tree for one of our customers and lit it (they decorate) when we started out the roads were clear on the way home I used 4wd a couple of hills (comfort factor) as the plows wernt out yet.

    actually live close to Saratoga, I had changed it to Glens Falls for a bit because some guy was PM'ing me saying he was going to steal my accounts if I kept winning bids in the area, so I made it seem I moved up the northway. But been there many times, and worked for the Red Wings out of college. Yeah Bob, that sounds like a nice day...we got our tree in Easton area on Sunday and put it up last night, very nice tree I must say

    On powerdery snows I have used my Redmax 7001.

    The problem I have is kickback.....snow flies everywhere and you end up with wet shins, etc.

    Has anyone used a power broom? I bought a nylon brush attachment for redmax, and plan to convert one of my weed-eaters to nylon brush for the winter? How well does it work?

    Is nylon brush or rubber squeegee paddle better?

    I have used a power broom before and I feel it take me longer than a shovel

    I love not shoveling snow as well since we never have any. :p The summer sun is no fun though..

    I used the trimmer with the rubber paddle on it last year. it worked ok, but heavy. Just wish it was a bit lighter

    ya, I had one guy that did snow removal swear up and down on it (paddle). So I told him to give me a demo. By the time he started it, and finished up, I would have been done with the work and moving onto another one
