(Some Canuk)   I'm Canadian and you know what I mean. I freeze my little tush on a cat walk. Oh on a cat walk. On a cat walk, yeah. I bring Mowgli to the vet, on a cat walk   (wellandtribune.ca) divider line

I spent about ten minutes walking around in that snow on Monday, it sucked but at least it wasn't bitter cold at the same time.

I also got to try my new battery-based snow blower that day, great tool with more then enough power to clear like a proper gas model but you have to be judicious with the available battery life.

I did something like that once, but with an adult 40 lb dog, so we didn't need a sled. She had an awesome walk. She also loved the vet because they would praise the heck out of you if you stood still on their scale for 1 second. She once took me over there just to stand on the scale.

Half a kilometer from the vet?  Well, I hope he could walk over there.

I live in a rural setting in Ontario & we're up to our balloon-knots in snow but I haven't seen or heard a snowmobile bombing around this season. In the past there would be a parade of them riding around my yard.
Anyhoo, a kitty-crate could be easily fastened to a snowmobile seat but the cat would probably have a nervous breakdown riding in it.

I get between 40 and 50 minutes with my two stage snow-joe per charge.  Single charge clears double driveway (about 45' long) plus walkway.  Will chew through the ice berg left by the snow plow.  Except when I was away and came back to 12" of snow + 2" of ice.  That took 3 charges.  Ordered a second set of batteries that day, so now that kind of a problem will be taken care of.  Takes about 2 hours to recharge, and after an hour I want something hot to drink and relax a bit.

Which of the two stage models did you get?  The beastly 100v or the 80v?  I wanted the 100v mega-beast but its just straight up not available to Canadians it seems, or well it'd cost $2500CAD to get one plus whatever duty.

I ended up with that very new Ryobi 4x40v two stage, the batteries operate in parallel so you're getting 80v of power and I'm happy with its auger and actually wish the impeller was adjustable speed too, at the lowest setting with 15 degree angle on the chute its chucking snow 25'-40' which for urban use is a little dangerous/annoying.  pondering a modification to add my own extension to the chute flap so I can angle the snow back to the ground close to me so I can do parts of the drive way that are between my house and the neighbor's.  It takes about an hour to charge a pair of the batteries on the dual charger but there's four total so you have to swap them out to let the other pair charge for an hour.

Time wise I spent about an hour clearing my 50'x12x drive way and that emptied the batteries out, but it was my first time operating a snow blower and an electric one no less so a lot of that was learning.  Wednesday's snow I cleared with only half the batteries used plus I got the whole back yard patio areas covered too.

Over all happy with it, just wish they'd included two dual bay chargers, it did come with a free leaf blower from the same battery family so I have three batteries of charging but without a four not much point LOL.
