Unlike the regular Storm models that feature wheels, the XP is less likely to ever get caught in snow or ice.

The Troy-Bilt Storm Tracker 2690 XP is a 26” two-stage snow thrower that relies on a 4.5” x 10” Snow Track Drive to keep 10” of track on the ground at all times for maximum stability and traction. Unlike the regular Storm models that feature wheels, the XP is less likely to ever get caught in snow or ice. Otherwise it’s almost a duplicate of the Storm 3090 XP, except that it hosts a weaker engine and a slightly narrower 26” clearing width. The addition of tracks coupled with the loss of width and power helps keep this unit priced the same as its immediate counterpart. Overall the 2690 XP has received a lot of praise for reviewer and experts alike. Not only can it easily devour both dry and wet snow, but it offers effortless steering and heated handle grips. Its only known fault is that the reverse speeds are rather slow.

Reverse is basically non-existent and the chute direction mech is total junk... Take a look at the 2012 model of this snowblower and notice that they have ditched the design. Kinda rough for those of us who already purchased the inferior design model. It runs great but that is where it stops. one word "JUNK".

For a rural area with gravel drive and no cement walks....this machine is SUPERB!
