I am a single mom living in a place where there is not too much snow....but you never know what the weather is going to bring. This machine takes care of my needs without expending all the energy I would normally use by just shoveling. The price point was also very good for a smaller snow thrower and a mom on a budget. It's not as big as some throwers, so it does take a little longer but I have had no issues with snow backing up or the engine not working properly. I am very pleased by the quality and ease of use of this product. Would recomment for people like myself or older individuals that are still independent. Fits budget and ease of use requirements for these 2 categories of people.
