Credibility: 4 out of 5 stars

“Paul Sikkema shares his expertise and hands-on experience with snow blowers at Moving Snow. The site, and most of the articles, are a bit rambling, so you need to do some work to get to the bottom of things, but it’s worth the effort. Sikkema knows his stuff, and isn’t afraid to praise or criticize where warranted. The only thing keeping this review out of the very top spot is that some of the feedback is based on showroom and tradeshow floor demonstrations rather than the rigorous testing done by some other sites.”

Hello, I’m Paul Sikkema. I’m a real person – not a picture of an old man with white hair on a website owned by someone in the Far East. I won’t tell you where I live but the pictures on this page are from my backyard.

The Dawn Redwood. This tree was assumed to be extinct until a small grove was found in the early 50’s. This tree is special because it is growing farther north than it should. It within a few feet of living half-way between the equator and the North Pole.
This area of Northern Wisconsin is too cold for my favorite tree – the Japanese Maple. So I decided to trim up the apple tree to look like one. The side benefit is the apples are huge!
Old Blue. This Hosta is over 75 years old and once was part of Gerhart A. Kopf’s nursery stock at Bald Eagle Nursery in Fulton, Illinois. When he retired he allowed me to have this wonderful plant. It gets over 6 feet wide most years.
Just a “light” February snow.
Just a few of the snow blowers we tested this year.
