I have the Model 30 Jiffy. The blades will cut even if you hit sand in the ice and so one. Nothing will stop a Jiffy.

It could fall off your truck going down the free way and nothing would go wrong with it.

One thing if you do get a Jiffy make sure if is the 3 h.p. you will be glad you did because the 3 hp chew through the ice like butter

As for the stealth blade I can imagine they are extremely fast. I have just the chipper and it is fast

I've used my model 30 Jiffy for footings for a retaining wall and she preformed well. You will always hear people complain about Jiffys being cold blooded and that can be true but if you or someone tunes it right you'll fall in love. Never had any issues with ice.

I just got the first full season on my STX 3HP and loved it. No issues with cold blood here, first or second pull everytime, unless I forget to turn it on ;)Never iced up once.

I get noticeable ice up on my model 30, but that doesn't have the Deicer armor. A buddy of mine has the 2hp STX Pro with de-icer armor and his works better than mine. Also, we raced them multiple times and they ran through the ice in about the same time with the 2 hp being quieter and lighter.

Smeese nice to see I'm not the only one who forgets to turn the auger on. It takes me 2 AAARRRGHs before I realize its not on.

I never had any trouble with my de-icer armor on my Stx Pro but I added a coat of teflon and never have any problems with the flighting icing up.

2 hp 8" stx, no problems with icing, blades, starting, or power. Pretty much no complaints period...
