    I'm looking to purchase a snow blower this fall and I was just wondering what everyone else owns. Any opinions on brands or models would be great. i like the tracked hondas but they are expensive.

    not sure how much you want to spend or how much width your looking to snowblow but Ariens and Husqvarna are really high quality blowers.....if your doing basic snoblowing then just hit up your local Home Po and Lowes or Sears

    I'd get one but my driveway is gravel, so I'd end up breaking a window or making someone wreck.

    My parents blower sucks though, it was a cheapy one... don't know the model, but I know it wasn't a honda.

    Yeah it's a little early but that's the way I am. I research everything to death before I buy something and then after I buy it I get buyers remorse.

    My driveway is gravel as well but that's why you let the first snowfall pack down.

    I am leading towards craftsman because you can get a 24" for about a grand Canadian. That's my limit. lol a 24" Honda is about $3500.00.
