So, I have to make a choice here...
Last fall I moved up here to Norther Idaho. Its pretty up here, but I really came for the job, and surely not the bitter cold....
I know I need a snow blower, my driveway is about 30' x 40', takes me about two hours with a shovel, takes my neighbors about 10 minutes with the snow throwers... I need to get a snow blower, dual stage.
Everwhere else that I don't have to clean off in the winter, I have to mow in the summer, which is almost an acre. I mowed it last weekend and it took me about 3.5 hours with my little 21" push mower. That is 3.5 hours before weed eating... I know I need a riding mower.
Now the choice:
A. Get a riding mower (~ $1200) and a snow blower (~ $1000)
B. Get a riding mower (~ $1500) and a blower attachment (~ $1200)
Oddly enough, getting one machine that does both is more expensive, so I am leaning towards to seperate machines. But, other than saving some space in my shop, are there any advantages to getting the riding mower with the attachment, are there any disadvantages?
Your next RC should be a RC mower with a snowblower attachment, I'd buy one if it were < $2k!
