My neighbour has an older Toro Snowblower which has an awesome feature. It's called "power shift", he can adjust the wheels backward if the machine starts to climb over the snow which put more weight on the front. And move the wheels forward for pushing it back into the garage. My old Honda Track blower had something very similar. I wish my new toro had this feature. It can be a beast to handle in deep snow and the power steering can toss you on your butt during a turn. Hand warmers are nice though. Sometimes new is not better.
