I picked up a 52" broom yesterday for my 1025R. My local dealer acquired this new broom from another dealer that was going out of business. It didn't have the driveshaft with it but for the price they offered it to me, I couldn't pass it up. I got it for $1500.00 plus $250.00 for the driveshaft.
Since I have 9000 square feet of paved driveway and my driveway is mostly all sloped, my thought is, I can use the broom for all those PITA 2" and 3" snows that we get in PA. With the broom, I will be able to get the paving clean so no fear of ice.
