Snow throwers are so very helpful in the north
As much as I dislike the noise of a gas powered machines(unless I happen to be using them in which case I understand the need), a snow thrower is a great boon to those in Massachusetts and above. My son-in-law uses his as soon as the snow flies and avoids the problems with getting the car out of the driveway and clears the sidewalk for the kids. The whole family goes out to simaltaneously play and work to make getting to school and work possible.
Removing the snow also avoids the problem of the snow melting some during the day and then freezing again at night, or a freezing rain coming and making walking a real hazard. So I have come to accept the usefulness of the gas engine. So if you live where snow is a problem, you might consider this gift as a holiday surprise for whoever takes care of the shoveling. It's a four cycle engine that runs on gas and involves not gas/oil mix. The handle collapses for easy storage and the chute is clog resistant.
