Anyone have RER Snapper with Snow Blade or is it to small for the job?
I have a 10HP engine on mine. I see the blades sold on craigslist every now & then. I have seen them for $35 to $75. Is it worth it?

If you have any pictures you can post, please do.

Considering where you live I would go with a snow blower instead, I had a flat 80' driveway in Eastern Jersey almost NYC and it just barely took care of the snow and was slow going, not to mention you get *** cold sitting still while running it. one year we had 5 or 6 good snows and the driveway got norrower and narrower each time. just my opinion

The snow blowers work pretty good on the snappers, just need to add some weight to the rear for better traction.

we only get 1 -2 inches at a time. Big snow here is in March. 6" wet snow.
1" so far this year. Supposed to get 1" tomorrow.

That's why I moved south, but still get some snow but everything shuts down if we get more than 3 " , if they even talk about snow on the news the stores run out of milk and bread and you see people buing cases of canned goods it is really funny. last year they canceled scholl about 3pm the day before and we just barely got a dusting on the grass.

30 years ago my brother helped me modify a blade from an old Wards Garden Mark RER to fit my 81 8hp 30" Snapper RER. It was worthless without chains. I should have added weight to the rear. If the drive disc gets snow on it, it won't move for 20 or so seconds. I had to make a run at it to move any heavy or deep snow.

I experienced the same last year, our first winter here. I moved from the NE as was also surprised at the reaction to dustings of snow.
