Troy-Bilt 020413

This basic gas model is the pick for annual jobs too big for an electric unit. The go-to 25-degree fan tip handles most cleaning, but please shelve the fierce 0-degree tip, lest you accidently carve your name into your deck. Large wheels make the machine easy to maneuver. The consumer-grade sealed axial pump means no oil changes, but it also means the unit may need to be replaced after seven years of normal use.

Fine print: 2,500 psi, 2.3 gpm, 190cc engine, 60.7 pounds
