We don't get a lot of snow in the Yakima Valley...usually. However, my driveway is 45' x 35' and is set in with the house and fenced yard partly enclosing on end. This means the snow has to be push about 20 feet straight out before it can be cleared to the sides. A number of years ago, I bought a snow blower. You know the kind, a reel the collects the snow and then pushes it out a chute. It worked OK except when the snow was wet. Then it was a constant battle to keep the chute unclogged. It finally was about time to buy a new one, when some stupid jerk stole it. He deserved the headache he got trying to use it. I went to my favorite small engine shop and on their advice I bought a new Toro. These have a different reel system they claimed would not clog. Well, they were right! This winter I have had the opportunity to use it several times. It will not clog. Maybe I should change it's name to Toto. LOL. This machine makes snow removal almost fun.
