They are cheap and reliable in operation, however, it will be quite difficult for them to cope with a large volume of snow cover. If the buyer knowingly knows that the equipment will be used in regions with traditionally heavy snowfalls, then, undoubtedly, it is worth giving preference to the GST models. These huge, powerful and productive machines can last for many years even in the most difficult conditions.

Living in a private house, we have long abandoned traditional shovels: it is useless to work with them during the period of snow drifts. Already 5 years ago we bought a Prorab car. I don't remember the exact model, but not "cheap". Works flawlessly, has not been repaired, uses fuel sparingly. I advise everyone who is iconic to buy exactly the Prorab tool, because its declared value really corresponds to the available quality.

My husband got tired of cleaning the snow with a shovel, so they bought a snow blower powered by a network. When choosing a model, we met different reviews about the "Foreman", but nevertheless decided to buy equipment from this manufacturer. As a result, we are satisfied with the car: it removes snow in a small amount perfectly, and you have to tinker a little with snowdrifts. In general, there are no complaints, especially since the price of a snow blower is quite acceptable.
Vladimir Ananyev, 57 years old, Svetlogorsk
Several years ago we purchased the cheapest self-propelled gasoline vehicle "Prorab". During this time, she coped well with any amount of snow. But this year I tried to start the car, check its performance, and it began to "stall". I gave it to my son, he fixed it without any problems. I hope that it will serve for many more years, because after such a technique I do not want to return to an ordinary shovel at all.
