Let's start with the PowerPup : A Good Friend of mine had said :"No more Dogs...I'm tired of burying my Friends..."
I told him that I completely understood. 3 months later,he had a Rescue from the Local No-Kill Shelter...... Let that be Your Guide and serve You well !
Now,All I know is that supposed Mid-Life Crisis are for Dweebs... You're obviously no Dweeb,so Your not going to engage in something purported to be a Mid-Life Crisis ! Repeat that atleast 3 times,rinse,spit and travel on Your Merry Way to looking at both types of All Wheel Drive Tractors. Snow shovelling does kill at the least opportune time. - Don't - ! :surrender:
Now,either stay with the paid off Honda Blower,and endure the needed time to move all that snow. What the Hell,it's already paid for ! It's going to have it's moments...
A Tractor with a front mount 2 stage blower needs to be nimble. It will save You time. It's going to cost You. That's Life ! I'd stay away from a plow blade,as You can only stack so much snow in the city. A 2 stage blower with a good chute director system can put the snow where You don't go. It also does well to avoid high piles that obstruct Your vision at aprons leading to and from the street. A simple drawback to a blower could be a schmuck morning paper deliverer who throws the damned thing in the driveway. After getting covered by falling snow,You get to read the daily news with the blower.... Now that's a poor Editorial !
In closing,here's to Your Heart,and Spine !
Oh,and P.S. : To Hell with Loose Women,Corvettes and any other Contemptible Swine - Type Devices designed to B.S. You that You're 21 again ! Yeah,I know,I sound like a Real Dweeb !!
