Every year the gang on Upper Randlett tells me the same thing: we’re gonna buy a snow thrower this year. And every year I give you the thumbs up, turn right around and tell Management you are totally full of crap.
I mean why would you? You know I have one. You know I’m gonna clear your sidewalk. Once I start listening to my 90s slow jams I just snow throw all over the place. Jodeci, Guy — you name it.
The Globe is reporting today that we just went through the snowiest decade in Boston’s history. 533 inches since 2005. It’s time to take your ass to Farina’s and get a snow thrower. Do not go anywhere else. Farina’s will put oil and gas in it, show you how to use it, then service it when it breaks.
You need at least a 24″ thrower with a minimum of 8 horsepower. Don’t come back to Randlett with anything less. 5 speed tranny will work. Ariens is a pretty good brand. Get an electric start too — you’ll use it on cold mornings.
Gonna be real here — you’re gonna drop at least $800. But it’s worth it (at least for me). Make this the year you guys.
