No way! There's no such thing as overkill with snow or lawns. You want to get the job done as fast as possible and more power just equals more speed not overkill. Your machine needs to be big enough for the right speed and conditions at their absolute worst! When you have 12-16" of wet packed snow at the end of your driveway from plows you'll be glad your machine can handle it.

Ariens 28" Deluxe all the way! They are $999.99 and you can get 10% off at Home Depot. Go online to their site and open a chat box. Tell the person you have a Lowe's 10% coupon you want to use. They'll honor that and give you 10% off. It's also free shipping so even with tax you'll have a nice machine delivered to your door for just over $900.

An Ariens compact is good for 3-6" of snow while a deluxe is 6-12". You move from 200 cc's to 250 cc's so a lot more power. The auger in a compact is 11" and 14" in a deluxe. The impeller in a compact is 12" and 14" in a deluxe. The tires go from 13"x4" in the compact to 15"x5" in the deluxe. For the extra $200 is well worth it to get a deluxe.

Also look into these Roller-skids.

Is there really technically more than someone could need when it comes to toys?

You're preaching to the choir here! It wasn't easy convincing my wife I needed my airplane.

Although I know where you're coming from, realistically, there is such a thing. He mentioned he has a small driveway, so I thought it was a little odd he suggested his Rider. My entire driveway(s) total about 600' - so I need the power and speed an ATV offers, but I'm not going to suggest it to someone with a smaller driveway and two sidewalks.
There is no way that Rider is going to handle something like this, anyway.

And what do you NEED out of a recreational plane kit?

I'm sure it's to spread fertilizer or to see the deer for hunting season.

I spread enough fertilizer here, don't I?
It's great for the occasional topless sunbather in her backyard, although one almost made me vomit this past summer.

He asked what we all use, not what we recommend for his particular situation. Given his question phrasing, my answer was appropriate.

Fair enough.
