Nice 30in 10hp snowblower or rather thrower on Amazon for close to $300 off MSRP shipped free. Reviews are really good and extensive on other models at Home Depot, this model on HD gets flack since it was damaged in shipping (dumb). Looks like this is made at the Husqvarna plant and is a clone.

Don't forget to stock up on shear pins if you have gravel.

Nice deal. So happy to find it here working for me.

Nice-it has the floodlight. Most snowblowers that is a $100+ accessory.
This seems like a good price to me also. Several years ago I got a 26" Craftsman (another Hot Deal) for $750.
Get extra shear pins and have them handy. They will break (they are designed to) and are hard to find in the stores off season or end of season. I broke one the very first time I used the new snowblower.
BTW if you have an older snowblower (like I did) consider replacing it. The newer ones are usually built out of lighter metal (bad) but otherwise much better in lots of ways. For example you don't need the muscles of a gorilla to use the pull start-I only use the electric start once a year to see if it works. Secondly, my new blower has toggle switches on the handle to disconnect the drive on that side-acts almost like power steering and cuts way back on having to muscle the thing around.
This one is probably beast size (my 26" is OK for Southern New England, 300' driveway, but I certainly could have used the extra housepower for our recent 3' blizzard). Make sure you have the garage space for it.

Although I don't own this model, a gas-powered self-propelled snow thrower is one of the best homecare investments I've ever made. This thing takes those puny electric ones I've seen recently on FW, chews them up and throws 'em. ha!
With the electric ones, you can (maybe) clean your driveway. One like this will clean your entire street just as easily.
