Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Great for Wisconsin Snowstorm We used this snow blower for the first time for a major snowstorm we had in southeast Wisconsin on February 8th 2015. Actually used it 4 times in 48 hours. It wasn't heavy or wet snow, but it worked great even for areas over 12" deep. Our driveway is inclined which is no problem for this self propelled unit. Easy to pull start but the electric start was even better. I had to do some assembly out of the box but it was just the handle and the chute. Oil is separate from gas so no mixing required. We got a really good price for a dependable product. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best bang for your buck! After some research I went with the Powersmart 2 stage because it fit my needs and was priced perfectly in my budget. The quality for the price is second to none. It was also easy to assemble and started right up out of the box powerfully! Great craftsmanship for a great price. December 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent snow blower for the money!! I went to Consumer Reports and they gave the basic unit 7659-22 a great rating for plowing through at the end of driveway and throwing distance. This unit lives up to the rating. Living on a wind swept hill, this really helps getting through the drifts also. The all metal chute is a great upgrade on this model. Easy to follow instructions help me to set this up and running in about 10 minutes. December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A real workhorse Much easier to assemble than I thought. Filled it with the proper oil and gas, primed and 2 pulls for a roaring start. Was hoping against hope I wouldn't have to use it, but we had an extremely heavy wet snow a few weeks after I bought it. Not only did it cut right through it, but I also had to use it on a drive and parking lot at a rental. Even after it got rope, plastic bags and some netting (all hidden under the snow) wrapped up in the auger it still kept going. I didn't even know until I was finished that I had a tangled mess that had to be cut out. I'm very pleased with my purchase. January 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent machine! Assembly was easy to follow and quick to do (about 10 min). It is also simple to maintain and has great power. You just can't beat the value. It's a very solid, well designed snow blower and for the money, I couldn't be more pleased. December 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returned after second use, would never recommend! Second use the snow thrower tunnel broke off and it would not shift into gear forward or reverse December 26, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great snow blower I got to use it for the first time during The Blizzard of 2015. It took on larger drifts,two feet plus, with no problem. It even handled the chunky city plow berm without any trouble. January 27, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Do not buy this snow thrower Do not buy this equipment. Home Depot did a fantastic job delivering the unit to my home in a few days, but the equipment was not up to the service provided. The disappointment started soon. First, the reverse would not work. Perhaps it was a matter of adjustment of the cables, but I would expect a new equipment to work properly. I had barely used the equipment for about 2 hours and the weld that connected the hopper to the crank shaft just broke. This is either a serious design flaw or poor manufacturing. I returned the equipment to a Home Depor store and the manager was very good about taking care of the situation. January 30, 2015
