The snow equipment I use the most.

Snowshoes are necessary equipment for walking the dog around here in February.

I posted this on FB, but here's some more details. I picked up a 1981 Toro 8hp 26" two stage snowblower for $360 delivered. I didn't mind the price because it's been well maintained with annual maintenance and is in virtually perfect condition with no rust and paint rubs.

The house that we regularly house-sit for has a modern Toro pretty similar in specs to this.....but this thing is just a beast. It chews through ice, hard-packed snow and frozen slush like it's nothing.

I feel like one of these would work pretty well this year.
