OK. Don't flame me to death. Hide I know it's just a woot deal, but it's a good price for the Toro 1800 Power Curve Snow Blower (new, not refurb). $130 + $5s/h delivered to your door. This is an ELECTRIC (corded) snowblower. Deal here [woot.com] (as if you didn't know where woot was).

I got one a few weeks ago, and the little thing really does work well, if you don't mind having that pesky little cord trailing behind.

Previous thread on it here.

I didn't see it posted yet, and I looked thrice. OK. Commence the flaming. Sadwalk

($200 currently at Amazon [amazon.com], but recently has hovered around $150+)

I've had one of these for the last 6-7 years (along with an electric mower). It's really easy to use and does a good job. The ability to turn it on and off at will is great and I can lift it easily with one hand. When I got it, most people thought it was a toy, but now that people are becoming educated about the torque of electric motors, mostly because of electric and hybrid cars, there is greater respect for them.

Obviously, though, it's not a monster. When we had 2+ feet of snow here recently, I had to shovel the top foot and then blow the bottom foot, but that only happens once every several years.

northeast blizzard points to the fact that you need a *real* snowblower for big snowfalls. though this should be ok for 4 or 5 inches

That probably explains the need to pay for your blowers.

I have one of these from ~1992. Pittsburgh winters, and still running strong. Electric is the way to go, even though you have to drag a cord behind you and avoid it on the way back. There is no gas, no fuss, and it hangs nicely from a hook on my garage ceiling.

Yes, if you get more than about 7 inches, you're going to need to shovel the tops off. This doesn't happen often though.
