Great product Sno-Thro Model 724. Purchased in 2001 and only thing I've had to do was tighten a cable after all these New Hampshire winters. The owner manual even took me through step by step of the cable tightening process so didn't even have to call for repair. Never have been able to pull start it but electric start works every time. May not be the biggest but definitely has the power to clean up my 80 foot by 12+ foot driveway at every storm.
