This is the last straw. After a major blowout on Sunday morning I'm about to end a ten-year, majorly dysfunctional, very high-maintenance relationship. I'm dumping my Craftsman Snow blower for a new one. Tell me what you love about your snow blower.

I'm a fan of Toro lawnmowers so I think I'd like to buy a Toro. What do you like/hate about your Toro?
I'm happy to hear reviews of other makes/models as well. I want a new one, with a warranty, I'm not looking to comb Craigslist for a 1970s Gravely.
I'd love to have a Honda but I'm not sure I can justify the cost, unless you promise me I'll never, ever need a repair.
My current model is a Craftsman, 7.75 HP, 26" path. It's been mostly adequate for my driveway so I'd like an equivalent model, only one that, you know, starts and doesn't break down all the time.
I'm in New England and I have a long driveway with a very wide area in back. We sometimes get up to a foot of wet, heavy snow. A snow blower is absolutely essential.
