Thanks for the MN and WI comments. I live on the MN/WI border and my regular plowing guy just hung up his plow forever. So I got one of these for minor snowfalls. A major plowing cost $45, so this will pay for itself if I can use it once and a while.
I’ve got cord for my corded lawnmower, so I won’t be messing up with dollar-store extension cords. I read up on that and it is REALLY important!
