I used to do it the exact same way back when I had an Ariens ST824. Saves the tires from wearing out.

I have one like that sold by IH in the late 70s.  My grandpa bought it new and used it for years until it became too hard to start then put it in the barn.  I dug it out rebuilt the carb. and used it for a couple years for cleanup after I plowed with my truck.  Nice lightweight machine and starts with a couple pulls. Weighs maybe 30 pounds and with the little 2 stroke tecky it'll really throw snow as long as the top edge of the unit is kept above the level of the snow.  I even used it to dig the truck out one time when I misjudged where a drop off was and the front tires started over.  The neighbor saw what happened and came over to help with his new craftsman walk behind and was impressed with how quick mine cleared out the packed snow while his struggled and couldn't belive it when I told him it was almost 35 years old

Makes me glad I love in an area where I can only remember 3 times having enough snow that using a plow and a blower were a life saver. Normally a good old fashioned shovel and a few minutes are enoigh to clear a path and the driveway.

Couldn't agree more ! That six inches of "partly cloudy" they get from sometime in October to early April along the lake between Cleveland and Buffalo just wears a person down....

Ill tell ya what...

My old run had me trucking milk out that way, not quite clear to buffalo, lol, i hauled into middlefield, but the winter before last (my first winter driving truck) was absolutly brutal.

We would run rt 2 from toledo clear out to cleveland then onto 422, there were plenty of nights where i qustioned just wtf i was doing, as no sane person would be out in that stuff.

A 10hr round trip often turned into 12, 14, 16 hrs. It was ridiculious.
