for size reference:  the folded ROPS rollbar on the back of the tractor barely clears a standard garage opening.

The rest of my snow equipment. Well, the Jeep isn't exclusively snow equipment.

I don't think that will fit in my shed.

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.
:thumbsup:
When I was a kid, we had a big toro from the 70's, my Dad would do our driveway and walkway then all the neighbors, when he moved to Vegas in 95 he gave it to my grandpop, who used it for another 10 years or so.  I don't think the new ones are made as good as the older ones, you got a nice one.

Good idea.

Looks like I'll be doing some blowing tonight, got 5 inches so far and it's still coming down like mad!  Then I'll be using my other snow equipment tomorrow, going skiing.
