Snowblowers? What forum?

What forum covers snowblowers....searched, but nothing seemed to fit?

Was curious at to recommended brands. I looked at Ariens, I liked the large auger diameter and 2nd stage housing diameter...they claim to be the largest which may reduce clogging.

The 28" professional now has a 420cc engine, which was a big increase over last years model, but at a large price tag of $2000 +/-. Was not sure if this was worth the increase over say $1600 for a 30" 342cc platinum model or even lower for delux.

I currently have a Snapper, but struggle because it is too small and my driveway too large. The snapper has a true differential and spins on a dime. The Ariens higher models (platinum and pro) have the same turn system versus the lower models(deluxe) which use wheel locks (which seems like a turn off to me).
