One of the best and most durable out there. Have done lots of snow tests on shovels and this really is the best one going.
This one is also good but not like the one I posted above here. Comes with a saw that can cut through willows, good for building snow caves, etc. (The Arsenal with saw)
All this ski talk has got me wanting a set of hydraulic skies for the Husky - - no a minor undertaking as the ones I want (RF-8001s) won't work with 26" tires I'm running, 8.50s max. Though I guess that's the least of the expenses! So like all good decision making, here's the pro's and con's as I see 'em:
1) I want them.
2) They'd be fun, I bet.
3) "aktahoe" has them, so why shouldn't I?
4) I have the money in the bank and Obama doesn't know it's there, maybe - - yet.
5) It would be fun to fly up to Idaho or AK in the winter.
1) I guess I really don't need them, but see 1)
2) There's only snow here in the high country for maybe 4 months of the year (near the same neck-of-the-woods as aktahoe)
3) Have to get 8.50's and a set of wheels to make the swap easy.
4) I tend to tell myself no on stuff like this, but at 65 I reckon I ought to spend more and leave the kids less?
5) I'd probably never fly up to Idaho or AK in the winter.
