Actually it's not too bad. I should have bought a front blower but it was twice the price. I can also do a great deal more with a rear mount. I can lift it about 20" off the ground to really get into snow banks. A front mount only raises about 6"-10" off the ground. All I can say is that it beats the heck out of a walk behind snowblower. :D

Not mine (unfortunately), but the airport I fly out of has a "vintage" snowblower that not only can really move the snow, but provides a wonderful chorus of Detroit Diesel "screamin' Jimmy". I can hear it from my house 2 miles away if it's cold and still at night.

BigFoot, how much wider than the rear wheel track is the blade when it's pitched to the side?

the blade is 6ft ,when I angle it at the first hole its about a foot & a half (has 3 sets of holes, 1st hole straight,2 hole about 22dg,3hole about 45dg 3 holes on each side and can be reversed) when I use The last hole its about half a foot and keeps all the snow to the out side of the track ,just one trip down & up and its done .Good thing about the blade is it works both ways you can push and pull in any hole
