This is a HOT deal for people who need shipping. Lowes needs to sell the snowblower at $574 to match this deal.

Says OOS
you can still order it. Just need to wait a few weeks. No snow until Late Nov anyway.

So what's the verdict this or the cubcadet
Cub Cadet is better. but it is $150 more expansive when comparing to the lowest sale prices this year.

I have the Briggs but my neighbour has the cadet.
This has a metal shoot I have no complains about it besides it being hard to turn. The cadet has a plastic shoot and a trigger to help you turn super easily.
This has led lights, cadet has old fashion filament light.
This requires total of 2 shear pin if it breaks because of a jam you’ll have a hard time finding it locally.
The cadet requires like 4 shear pins but not sure how difficult is it to find parts for it.

Regardless they are both same CC I believe and does the job. Breaking point for most people is the cost and the turning feature.

You make your pick. I’m happy with my Briggs.

I spent WAY too much time reviewing snowblowers last year. I looked at this one for a long time then decided to spend 2X as much on a Toro Hybrid to save space and get greater mobility. https://www.toro.com/en/homeowner/snow- ... -qxe-36002.

good luck with your Snow blower journey!!! (I have no regrets with my buy).

looking for one, should i get a full blown gas or an even more expensive electric ego
If you have small driveway (4 cars or less) in GTA, a corded thrower will do the job. Single stage electric throwers are not self propelled. You still need to push the machine forward, which may not save you much time and effort than a shovel.

A single stage Toro gas blower is the way to go in urban SW Ontario. Single stage is hands down the best choice for 95% of snowfalls.

Ego makes sense if you are going to be part of their battery pack ecosystem (mower/trimmer, etc). Its one of the few cordless machines that can run head to head with a gas blower (and could beat a gas blower)
