I wouldn't have bothered, except the fact that we have this island in front of our house that creates a sort-of cul-de-sac effect, and more often than not the plow can't (see: won't) get in front of our driveway to plow- so I'm pretty much responsible for a big chunk of the street as well.<br><br><br><br>

Yup- got some advice from my father in law who used to work & plow snow for the village he lives in - he said at *least* 5 HP was needed for wet snow - this model is exactly that...<br><br>From the description:<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>This snow thrower is ideal for light snow and can take in 8-10 inches of snow. 5 hp Briggs & Stratton 4-cycle engine delivers the convenience of no mixing gas and oil, reduced vibration and noise, and lower emissions for better performance<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Woohoo- no mixing gas & oil either...<br><br>
Small driveway, 6-8 inches of powdery snow, sure. Not sure how well that would handle deeper wet stuff. When I last lived near Boston, I had a 6-speed, 12 hp, 36" Toro, and even that beast struggled some in very wet snow over 10" deep.<br><br>
