After nearly 40 years of battling big snows in the Colorado mountains, all the hard way, I finally bought of of these Swisher snowblowers. I have a 500 foot long driveway that goes uphill to a highway that is cleared in the winter. The rest, my drive , is up to me.
This weekend we had about 4' of fresh, wet, heavy spring snow. When I went out to clear it, it was still about 30" deep. The Swisher cleared my entire driveway in a few hours. It is amazing!
The only problem I have is that the tires begin to slip and dig holes going uphill. I have tire chains and of course, I have misplaced them.
My son calls this machine "a beast". It is a champ and worth every penny I spent. It was throwing rocks along with the snow until I made two 3/4" skids for the front to increase the ground clearance.
