Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 70 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by not bad at all I bought this guy to clear my deck for the winter. So I live outside Buffalo NY right smack dab in the middle of the recent 8 foot snow storm. Taking my time I cleared the deck. I figured this would kill the machine but nope it all I expected and more. December 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wish I had bought sooner ! It is incredible easy to use, worked well on wet snow. Easy to put together. I am totally impressed at how well and quickly I was able to clear my driveway. January 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Safe, Simple to operate, perfect for decks and small driveways This unit is a great alternative to a gasoline operated snow thrower. I have used this product in three New England snowstorms and it made my job a lot easier. Here are things I like about it: 1) no gasoline needed, a plus when you have to move unit between sites. 2) no maintenance or oil changes 3) safety switch 4) simple operation 5) simple assembly took less than 5 minutes to complete What I disliked: 1) nozzle rotation mechanism is clunky 2) plastic housing is adequate and makes the unit lightweight, but not sure of how many seasons I'll get out of it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than Toro I bought this to replace my five year old Toro, which is the same size. This is a superior machine in power and quality. Let's be clear: it's a small snow blower, so I am comparing it to other small snow blowers, not to big ones. This one arrived in 36 hours (good job, Home Depot!), was easy to put together, is solidly built, and did the job better than my old Toro ever did. January 9, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very good value. Very good value for the price. Although not as powerful as a gas powered snow blower I have used it on deep snow (8-12"); and wet snow, without a problem. It just takes a little longer. It will throw snow as far as 25-30 ft. Light and easy to maneuver. I would recommend for those who are looking for light weight, easy of use, and low price. I would not recommend if you have a very large area to clear. It would take longer because of the lack of power. January 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and clears well Took very little time to assemble and did a very good job of clearing my drives and sidewalk with little effort on my part. The discharge chute is very easy to move back and forth. January 10, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good basic snow blower. Some minor assembly required. Make sure you read the assembly directions to ensure proper orientation of handle pieces, or you'll get to take it all apart like I did to fix the orientation of the bottom handle piece! The first time I used this the chute kept clogging. I'm not sure why. The 2nd time everything worked well. It threw the snow off the driveway from the center. The driveway wasn't completely clean underneath, but certainly was acceptable... and I didn't have to shovel! Didn't take me long to clear the driveway. Definitely glad I bought this. I'm sure there must be a strategy for easily keeping the cord out of the way. I never discovered it... although, I never ran over the cord. We bought this on sale with free shipping. It's definitely worth the sale price, though, I would hesitate to pay the list price for this snow blower. March 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use and assemble Easy went thru 4" of medium weight snow. Easier to assemble than almost any other thing that I got that needed to be assembled. January 24, 2015
