Yel­low is the new black

The Glengarry News - Glengarry Supplement - - News -

Yel­low is a strong colour for Eric Blais, owner of R&R Small En­gine sit­u­ated on County Road 34 south of Alexan­dria.

The yel­low Cub Cadet snow blow­ers he sells make short work of snow-clear­ing.

“The man­u­fac­turer is in­no­vat­ing all the time,” points out Mr. Blais, re­fer­ring to one of the hot­ter mod­els, a ma­chine with a 30- inch auger and a three-stage im­peller sys­tem. For com­fort and power, you can opt for a lawn trac­tor, pow­ered by a 22horse­power en­gine, that can run a blower with a 42-inch auger. “Two shots and your car is out of your drive­way,” he points out. At­tach­ments, such as a mower with a bag­ger, can be added, along with chains or weights. The devel­op­ment of the three-stage sys­tem means that the blower can cut through snow, ice and slush quicker and more eas­ily than ever be­fore.

Cub Cadet has carved out a size­able chunk of the mar­ket be­cause of a good cost-ben­e­fit ra­tio. “This is qual­ity that the av­er­age per­son can af­ford,” says Mr. Blais.
