should we pull the trigger and invest in a snow blower? cant seem to justify the cost using it about twice a year.

This doesn't really help, but there are years when its in the garage and I think "what a waste of money". But then there's that once snowstorm that comes along and dumps like 24" of snow and I am like "thank god we have this freaking thing". Kind of like my pool these days.

It depends on the size of what you need shoveled. I do my own shoveling but when it snows alot we leave the car on the street so i dont have to do the driveway and im just shoveling the walkway. Since we have a suv with 4 wheel drive he basically runs over the snow so i dont have to shovel too much around his car.

So with that said, it all comes down to how much property are you shoveling

I think it depends on your property size and how much you need to shovel. We bought a house on a corner property and I cannot imagine having to shovel the driveway plus the walkway around the corner. It's sooo worth it to us.

We bought one about 6 years ago that was less than $200. We didn't have a large space to clear (2 car driveway and sidewalk) but that still made it worth it for us.

I can't imagine having to shovel.
It would be like having to sweep the floors vs buying a vacuum in my opinion

We bought one and it didn’t snow for 3 years. When it finally snowed the thing wouldn’t start lol

We love ours! We’ve had some winters with little snow but on the flip side we’ve had some with a lot of snow. We’ve had it for about 10 years so we’ve gotten our moneys worth.

It really depends on your property size. We are on a corner so we definitely find it useful.

I thought for sure once we bought one it would never snow again, but I think we’ve used it every year since! I think it is one of our most useful home purchases.

Think us shovelers are a dying breed. Just like people who mow their own lawn lol.
