Question Snowthrower Suggestions

Iím new to this forum, but I need help choosing a snowthrower with winter coming. I know what I want I just donít know from whom. I live in St. Louis, MO. We get moderate snowfall (5-8 inches rarely over 10 inches ). I only want to spend around $400. I want a 2 cycle. Electric start or recoil start it doesnít matter much. I donít mind yanking on the string. I donít want a rubber faced auger, because we get ice mixed with snow here. My driveway is just a regular 2 car driveway. If you guys need anymore more info Iíll give it. Thanks.

Hello jordanstl!

Sorry, I can't help you with snowblower information (I live in the deep south where snow is rare). Hopefully someone else here can give you some advice.

Sounds like you know just what you need, I dont know much either directly about snow throwers, I am from just the other side of KC from you and I dont recall ever seeing them for sale at Monkey Wards So just make sure what ever you do get, you can get good support for it.

You're going to have a hard time finding a 2 stage snow blower for under $400.00 unless you get lucky and find one used.

Don't be too quick to rule out a single stage though.
I live in Michigan and along with ample amounts of snow, we get our share of freezing rain and ice.
I have a older Toro CCR 2500 and so far it has munched and spit out everything I put in front of it (including one of those rubber entrance mats that's made of used tires)...

I have a 15 year old Toro ccr 2000,single stage,2 cycle. 60 ft. double driveway.
The little sucker is like the 'energizer bunny'. I chose it for lightness,ease of manuerving,(didn't want to bang into 4 cars in driveway)
It does have rubber paddles,but i have never considered them to be show stopper. Paid about $500 15 years ago. expensive,but well worth the dependebility and service. I'm in Massachusetts,and we get everything in a typical winter.
