When we were in New Jersey, a friend of mine who moved South, gave me his Simplicity 8 h.p. 2 stage snow blower
. It had an electric "plug in" start and pull chord start. It was THE BEST SNOW BLOWER I ever had!
A friend of mine (also in New Jersey bought it from me when we moved to Tennessee. Now I need a "Rain Blower"...we had 10 inches of rain over the past weekend
(but everyone in New Jersey got al least 20 inches of SNOW!)
