Works great, but only 8 hp so thinking of finding a 10 hp to put on for next year. 8 hp not quite enough for the heavy stuff. Also putting chains on next year too. Not much traction backing up. Fun to use, but not as comfy as front mounted blower. I used the front mounted loader to dig out a snow bank, then turned around and used the thrower to move it away. This tractor had the optional electric lift, but was gone when I bought the tractor, but the switch was still there, so I used it to operate the loader. The lower key switch is for the thrower engine. Gas comes from tractors gas tank to operate the engine on the thrower. Hope this is interesting to you, Noel
