    Well I was all over the place trying to decide if I was going to buy a snowblower this year. I was then decided to see if I could hold off till next year if the snow came really late. Well a week and a half ago we had about a foot come down and that was enough. Between shoveling my place and moms I had enough.

    Tuesday I went and bought a Toro 826 OXE from CanMac in Elmsdale. That is the first time I have dealt with them. My wife talked to them on the phone 3 or 4 times and they were great to her so that pushed me that way. Treat my wife right and I will be willing to spend my money there. Went and picked it up after work. Everyone I talked to was friendly and helped load it on the back of the Jeep.

    Had a chance to use it the next morning. We had about 8" fall overnight. I did 4 driveways with it. It would have been 5 but someone did my mothers driveway before I got there. We are not sure who but they saved me some time. I just had to shovel the back door and deck. Did the driveway for my in laws and two neighbors.

    Loving the machine so far.

    That looks like one handy looking gizmo. I don't know how things have been up in Canada, but the winter has been positively nasty here in the Pacific Northwest of the US. The snow is long gone, but we had plenty of rain, sleet, freezing fog, snow, hail, flooding, etc. this year. I'm ready for some spring or, for that matter, summer.

    'gratz on the snowblower. :)

    Thanks. This year was a joke compared to last year. We had rain after most big storms at some point so it didn't build up much. We had snow down for a few weeks at best. Then it was here and gone. Still glad I didn't have to shovel what did come down. It came in handy and will be ready to go for next season. I think it could be called into action a time or two before the shorts come out but we will see. We could get a ton of rain tomorrow which will get rid of almost all of the snow piles that are left (except the largest at dump sites). Calling for it to be pretty warm as well. I'm just hoping for a real spring this year. It was well into summer last year before it really started to warm up. We didn't really have a spring.
