PowerSmart 26 Inch Snow Blower. Assembly and overview.

PowerSmart 26 Inch Snow Blower. Assembly and overview.

The fine folks over at Powersmart sent me this huge snow blower to check out. Well, Wouldn’t it be just our luck that we haven’t had any good snow?
It’s a great looking unit with a Briggs and Stratton engine. I’d say it looks like a winner to me!
