We're getting ready for winter and yesterday we went out and bought a new snowblower. We got 14 years out of the last Ariens so I decided to get another one.

  • Featuring a wide 28” clearing width that moves 65 tons of snow per hour
  • Powerful 254cc Ariens AX engine
  • Blows snow up to 50 feet, 14” auger and impeller diameter, Tall housing height, Auto-Turn Triggerless Steering, Interlocking handles for one-handed operation
  • Starting at $1,099
I'm hoping my purchase means we wont get a lot of snow this winter. The last couple of years have been pretty mild so we're due for a bad one.

Now that you bought that it won’t snow much.

That thing looks like it will throw a bunch of snow, congrats on the purchase Paul. 👏

I hope so to both replies. We haven't had too much snow the last few years but not long ago we got over 10 feet of snow in less than a week's time.

Some of the big ones with a 10 - 25 horsepower engine will pull you behind it.

Where I’m from originally you can’t use a shovel you can’t keep up with it so it’s either get a plow or snowblower.

Yeah, way to much real estate to do it all with a shovel, not to mention helping out the neighbors as well.

Yep, he could do all the neighbours next, then carry on down the M6 motorway with that.

I usually do my sidewalk and one of my neighbor’s. She’s a widow and there’s no way she could do it herself.

That's nice of you. Is she an old lady
LOL, she’s older than me, I think. I do it so people aren’t walking in the street, which what happens if the sidewalks don’t get cleared.

Dunno, a few years. She certainly isn’t in good enough health to do it herself.

Before I moved, when I was married. There used to be an old woman that lived oposite me. I used to mow her front garden for a few years until she ended up having it all block paved.

When I was a kid living in California, one of my neighbors let his grass die and then he painted it green.
