I think you would be happy with either an Ariens or Toro model. Those were the two i was looking at before i decided on the Ariens. Stay away from the entry level ariens, i think i see them at HD called sno-tek or something like that. I went with Ariens because i wanted a tracked unit for my steep drive. I have beat the heck out of it for three years, still looks and runs like new. We have a 28" toro at work which throws some snow, even wet. 28" i think is a good size. Anything bigger and you really have to start paying attention to engine size. The more you scoop up the more power you need.
