Snow Blower

Justed moved to a bigger house and will need a snow blower. I have 106 feet of sidewalk about 3-1/2 feet wide and a 20 ft. by 44 ft. driveway plus I have two backyard sheds that I will need access to that are 36 feet away.
I want a two stage but want to know which model or how much gas engine size I need. I do not want a toy.
Which model and/or features will I be happy with? My price range is 700.00 to 1500.00.

I would suggest a 26" cut with a 208cc engine. As far as brand goes, go with what brand of equipment (lawnmower, lawn tractor. ect) you have used in the past and like.

The only thing I could add to Indy's response is Local Parts & Service support.. If you have the best unit in the world & have to drive 2 hours in a storm to get a belt, but the local guy has belts for the units he services???? I'm thinking what has local service support in you'r price range & area... Just another thought....Roger

I have a MTD snow blower 5HP 26" cut 2 stage. It has taken everything I have pushed it into other then wet slush. It would be on the lower side of your price range so I'm sure you will not have any problem finding one that fits your needs.

Thanks All,
There are two servicing dealers near me and I'll be seeing them both to see their models and features.
On purchases for power equipment, I will stick with the servicing dealers.
