Please help! I need some suggestions and advice on buying snow removal equipment. I am undecided between a walk behind snow blower or a riding mower with a snow thrower. I never used either one of these machine before but I will learn.
I am a single mom who just moved into a new house in Seymour, CT. I work full time and take care of my daughter along with my elderly parents. My house sits on top of a hill with a long driveway (500ft plus). The driveway is poorly designed. The pitch and grading makes it impossible to plow. The driveway is narrow and curvy so the plow truck was not able to get up the hill. It was terrible being snow in this weekend because I was not able to find anyone to plow the driveway. I was so worried that something will go wrong and emergency vehicles wouldnt be able to get to us on time so I HAVE to resolve this problem immediately.
With that being said, I need to be able to care for the driveway so my family will be safe and would appreciate any suggestions on the best choice. I have a budget of $2500. Also, I would need something that I can easily maneuver because I am barely 5'2"tall and 120 lbs.
Thank you so much in advance.
