Alternative snow blowers

The Murray 1695720 snow blower is not presently available. My enquiries lead me to believe it has been discontinued.

The best replacement Murray model seems to be the Murray 1696030 29-Inch 305cc Briggs & Stratton 1450 Snow Series Gas Powered Two Stage Snow Thrower With Electric Start.

Alternative models of broadly similar size and specification that I’d suggest you also take a look at are these:
