We got 27 inches of snow over the weekend and my new 1025R and 54 inch snow blower handled it like a champ!!! It was a heavy snow and a lot of it and the power was excellent!! I took my time and not only did my driveway, but I did my other neighbors too. Plus, I dug out all the mail boxes on my street because the township plow guys buried them!! The backhoe did a great job!! Plus--it was a ball!!!!
