Wanna trade? We've got way more than that, and that doesn't even count the diesel motors, which we have way more of.

Grandpa had a Deere unit from the late 70s/early 80s. It was a snow eating beast and ran like a champ. And grandpa never screwed with fuel even though we rarely used it. It was sold in the estate auction in 2008, and dad missed it. He was pissed.

Anyway, if you get one that isn't a cheap POS, I think it will stay as long as you want.
