This is the best snow blower ever, I purchased it over 7 years ago and have never had a problem with it. The only maintenance we have ever had to do is change the oil and summerize it. It starts on the first pull every time. the chute is easy to turn and it hardly ever cloggs. It works as good as the day I purchased it. This John Deere snow blower was worth every penny I spent on it. I would recommend this snow-blower to anyone in the market. I am extremely pleased with my purchase. Best to pay a little more for a high quality product that will last a for many years. It blows the snow far and high so make sure you pay attention to the wind direction. It shoots the snow high and ithe snow will blow back on you if you are down wind. Once is all it took and I never made that owner error again. I used it this morning for 8 inches of snow and it easily handled the snow. We live in Michigan where we get a lot of snow. This is the machine you need.
