A little more repetition. Bought one for my ladyfriend about 7 years ago in VA. Works quite well in the right conditions, meaning about 6" in lightweight snow with no problem, about 4" in heavy, wet snow with some slogging/clogging. When we're going to have more than 6" (e.g., snowmageddon), she'll do multiple passes, i.e., she'll do a run at the first 6", then another run at the next 6", etc. Will not do icy snow such as that left by a street plow, plan on shoveling that. She's in her 60's and wouldn't be able to handle a gas powered blower but has no problem with this electric model, it can be carried with one hand easily. At the time I bought it, it was the most powerful electric model available and that still seems to be the case.
