I live in New Hampshire at 1250 feet elevation and I make it work. Of course we don’t have our lives end if we have to not have power for an hour or two to use the tractor to move snow. People are so wrapped up nowadays that they need power ever second of the day that they can’t live without power and internet for a few hours. Unhooking and hooking up my generator takes about 2 minutes each way and I only have to plow enough to get a vehicle in and out for emergency or work, not completely clean up if I need the tractor for the generator. Full cleanup can wait until later.Poster lives in the north. What usually knocks power out more in the north than a blizzard or a heavy wet branch and power line busting snowstorm. Pretty hard to run the generator when the tractor is busy removing all the snow.
