Trusty John Deere 1130SE snowblower ....

mine does very well. properly equipped they can push alot of snow. I like to think I have mine setup pretty nice. BFG for excellent grip, light poly plow with Down Pressure. And a nice 5 spd manual with a brand new clutch!

But they are nic because of their size. I wouldnt plow supermarket parking lots with it, but for small business and residential it is really idea, get in get out and move around with ease, vs a big ass 3/4 ton long box!

Shovel, and my dad's walk-behind Simplicity snow blower, damn thing has gotta be at least 15 years old if not 20. Had it as long as i can remember. Got one of them vinyl cabs on it, works pretty nice.
