Snow thrower recommendations?

I am getting too old to be shoveling snow. Anyone care to offer a reccomendation on a snow thrower?

I want something that is not too heavy, 100lbs or less, so I can drag it out of the basement by myself. Must be a 4 stroke as I don't want to bother mixing fuel and stuff. Other than that I am open to suggestions? Craftsman? Honda? Toro?

I know you stated that you don't want 2-stroke, but if you want a light unit, that is the best way to go. Toro PowerLite is an effective, lightweight unit. It can clog in wet,heavy snow but I've always managed to get through the snow with mine. It also is easy to start, and has held up very well. Mine is over 13 yrs old and was used to clear many driveways as a side jobs by myself and my brothers growing up. To me, the 2-stroke is simpler cause you never need to change the oil! Good luck with whatever you choose.

How hard is it to pull start? I have had two stroke lawnmowers before and they were a bitch to start. My Crafstman lawnmower has a 5HP 4 stroke engine and it is a breeze to start. Of course I am not trying to start it in the cold either.

Nah not married. Even if I was married, I doubt the Misses would get off her ass and shovel. I don't know any women who shovel their own snow or mow their own lawns. The most common excuse I hear is that they lack upper body strength. This is when I tell them to go inside, wash my dishes, mop my floor, do my laundry and make me a sandwich.

Not surprised you still single.

MTD (Menards) are cheap, but mine has served me well for the last 10+ years. Knock on wood. It has even eaten a couple of newspapers. It has an electric start on it. It won't start without it. My next one will have a light on it though.

I'm luck, my wife likes to get outside and clear the driveway and especially mow the lawn.

Done! You better stretch out. Remember I have a 6 unit apartment building. Don't forget to do the alley so my tenants can move their cars out of the garage.

It's started reliably in 2 pulls from when it was new until last year. Currently, it doesn't start as easily since the 13-year-old primer bulb broke. I think most hard-starting issues with small engine equipment and tools come from old gas. 2-strokes should be no harder (or easier) to start than 4-stroke motors.

Maoisn,

The sear's models works fine for your purpose. I have a two flat and do my neighbors without any hassles. On wet snow it can bog down but back up a little and it clears up. You are welcome to do my area for a test run when it snow enough.

FYI, It easy to handle that the SO does the snow and grass on many occasions (with the grass cutter).

Bring on the snow! Picked up a 4HP snow thrower at Sears today. Got the very last one they had in stock. The lady behind me gave me a dirty look when she heard that. LOL.

Filled it up with oil and gas. First pull started no problem. I hope we get some snow tonight and tomorrow so I can bury my neighbor's car in snow.

You buy a piece of junk, or a single stage, it won't throw it. We just don't get enough snowfall in Chicagolalalaland to warrent the expense. Plus shoveling, I get my workout for the day

Single-Stage Snow Blower + Snow Throwers

Single-stage snow blowers are designed for lighter duty snow removal applications such as small driveways, patios and sidewalks. Operation involves the auger rotating at a high speed to gather snow and throw it out of the shoot in one motion.
Two-Stage Snow Blowers

Two-stage (or dual-stage) snow blowers make two points of contact with the snow. Snow is gathered inward by slow turning augers and directed toward the high speed impeller which throws the snow out of the chute. Dual wheel drive provides maximum traction for extreme snow conditions. Two-stage snow blowers are excellent for large driveways as well as for gravel or unpaved surfaces, and they attack hard, compacted snow with ease. You also get a wider clearing path than you would with a single-stage snow blower or snow thrower.

The snow expected for tomorrow will be wet and heavy.....your 4 hp will be stressed out

Good info Rick, bad timing. I wish you posted this stuff beforehand. Oh well.

I'll see how well it works on the wet snow. I live in the city so I don't need to throw snow 30 feet, just 2-4 feet to the side out of the way. If it works like crap, it's going back and I'm getting a 2 stage.

Maybe I don't need to say this, but

TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE NEW TO SNOWBLOWING:

NEVER PUT YOUR HAND IN THE AUGER AREA! (yes I'm Shouting)

The stuck auger may have recoil, and as soon as its free it will spin. Releasing the pressure, and chewing the hell out of anything in its way. Instead use a broom stick, peice of wood, wifes dildo, whatever, just not your fingers!

Rick, I agree. Anything under 2" gets shoveled. Anything over gets blown. I could use the excerise, but don't see the point. Also I use the blower to evenly disperse the snow to reduce drifting back in.

All you have to do is go out there a few times a day. I am sure it will handle three inches of wet. When you get close to a foot, you will have to angle it and shave off layers of snow.

Rick,

Although your logic is sound, I can tell you from my experience it's not the case. I disposed of my giant two-stage last year in favor of the Honda single stage 4 stroke. It is smaller, lighter and much easier to manuever. But most importantly, it throws the snow just as far and just as fast, if not faster. Although it clears a narrower path, it goes much faster. I'm done in little over half the time it used to take me. FWIW

Tom.

I have used a small "paddle" Toro thrower for years, you'll be fine as long as you don't rush it, let the machine do the work. My next door neighbour has a Sears 4 HP and a when we get 6" of snow, I'm always done shoveling before he is
