two ways to guarantee no snow.  1.  New Snowblower.  2.  New Snowmobile.

Not to hijack, but I picked up my snow tires on Friday, put them on on Sunday, got 12" plus on Monday night.

 

Still called in "working from home" on Tuesday.  I wasn't going to risk the roads and the idiots.

Seems like almost overkill for that fully CO stuff.  Nice though

Picked that same one up last year right before the "volar portex".  We get 82" per year, on average, I've seen over 120", sometimes quite wet stuff too.  It's a champ.

Single stage is terrible with the wet stuff.  Always get stuck in the chute and you have to frequently stop to get snow out of the chute.  Sorry Deejaydan, but my experience with a single stage and wet snow differs from yours.  

Hope it works out though.

My snow blower did a great job last year.  I don't remember a year with less snow.

I agree but I think that the term "wet snow" has a different meaning in CO than the midwest and northeast.

This one is different than a typical single stage if you look at the design (extremely fast rotation rate). I've moved up to 10" of wet spring snow without a single clog, ever.

If you look at reviews, there are plenty of people who use this in the North and NE with success. I can't speak to that, but it works great in Colorado's Front Range.

ya, fair point.  what we term as 'wet' snow is often literally dripping wet and is fecking back breaking to shovel.

When I’m old, I’m going to mow my lawn at like 4 am with a push mower and run a snowblower over my yard in the day as if I were mowing. People will know to stay off my lawn.
