Great invention on a snow blower! After 6 futile yanks on the handle, plugged it in and... *crank crank crank* bingo!

Temp is +4 and expecting 6 or 8" of white stuff. Got this one for Christmas brang new. It was on the patio so I got it running and moved it around front in the garage.

Ran it a bit just to get a feel for the controls & discovered I need goggles and probably a towel wrapped around my mug.

It's still coming down pretty good so no more snow blowing for a while.

Must be winter! SW

We've gotten almost a foot and a half since mid Dec.

Lower your discharge chute height, and "quarter" the discharge away from the machine to keep from getting it in the face. Eye protection is a must with one of these. The odds of it picking up more than snow are fairly high.

We had a 12 h/p at work. Electric start was all it had. There was a little too much 4 stroke compression on it for recoil starting. We made a plexiglas shield for ours, and it worked, sort of. We'd have to stop it every now and then to clear the shield in order to see.

Pace your self with that thing. Depending on conditions, it can be more exertion than manual shovelling....

The grin on ya mug says it all!
Congrats on the new implement!

Regards,

Doc Sharptail
