We have owned our little snow blower for two winters now and are so happy to have it. After owning a VERY old and bulky machine that gave out on us, we spent two winters shoveling before we were given this machine as a gift. What a back saver! Small and compact, the handle folds down to save space in the garage between use. It clears very well, even in deep snow. Starts up on the first try every time and runs even in sub zero temps. Easy to push and maneuver, even for a small framed woman like myself. A nice little machine if you want something simple and small that will get the job done.
