I have not had a chance to put my hands on this snowblower so I can only give you a visual review and not the complete review you are used to. In my area Menards carries them but has them on a high shelf. You can’t play with it or get a feel for how it will fit you.
The snowthrower looks big and rugged. The 250 cc, 11.5 gross torque Briggs & Stratton engine will be able to handle the 27 inch snow thrower.
CONS: The snow thrower looks front heavy.
In my area it is very difficult to get parts for the Brute. The two stores that sell the Brute do no have a good service program and do not have an easy way to get parts for the machine. I would strongly suggest that you spend some time researching the ways you can get parts for it before you buy it. Don’t just take the kid’s (sales associates) word at the Menard’s or WalMart that you can get parts or service. Have the associate SHOW you how.2008 Brute 27 inch Snowthrower Model 1695575 Review by Paul Sikkema
