Anyone have consumer reports online and wants to send me the CR reviews? Any other suggestions on snow-blowers?

If you can afford a 2 stage snowblower it is definitely the way to go!

I will take that into consideration, thanks. Thanks to the kind DD member who sent me their CR username and password. Much appreciated.

I see that your location is Brooklyn, so unless you have a lot to do the 2 stage may not be worth it.

I live in Long Island so I have plenty of snow to get rid of. When I used a single stage for a 12"snowfall it almost wasn't worth using at all. 2 stage is a breeze and can easily handle up to 2 feet of snow.

That said, it cost 2-4x as much, is much heavier and is much bigger than a single stage.

I live in monsey and grew up snow blowing driveways for my block. We have 2 gas powered crafstman. 22" 3 stage snow blower. They are amazing and they are monsters. Puddles if you need it for monsey snow then its worth it to get the better ones. if you need it for brooklyn snow... get a shovel :) or electric
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.

Unfortunately, this is for Brooklyn. I found a solid electric one that has good reviews. Trying to see if I can get some neighbors to split it with me.

Any recommendations on which brand/model to get?

I live in Brooklyn but it's a corner house + two big driveways + the alley.
I like vanilla but my name is Venilla.

You're scaring me.  I thought we're off the hook for this year.  :)

Anyone with any recommendations to share?

Particularly interested in electric snow blowers, would love cordless but I'm open. Total areas is fairly small: front of my property is about 30 ft wide, tops, and then just need to clear a walking path down my driveway.
