Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DLB New Snow Blower
My order arrived at the local store in good shape, a few days earlier than expected. The local workers were most helpful in loading it into my SUV. I had no problems with assembly, since I had previously owned a snow blower. However, if I hadn't been experienced, I would have had a LOT of problems, as the included assembly instructions were AWFUL!!! Someone needs to take a good look at them and do a rewrite, along with helpful pictures/diagrams. Once I finished, I serviced it with oil and gas. It started right up on the first pull. Obviously, with no snow, I can't evaluate how good it works, but looks like it should do just fine. A couple of other comments: Why couldn't I get free drop shipment to my home instead of at the store? That would have saved me a trip and the loading/unloading problem. Also, why was my military discount not applied to this purchase?

This snowblower is really good. Quality built, but you will lose the auger port gutter screw. But don't worry, because it is held in place very firmly anyways, and is impossible to lose. Powerful, heavy, and stock, is about the best around $500. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a good quality snowblower that is reliable and performing. Starts in three pulls everytime, but usually (like 92% of the time) pulls in one pull. One wheel unlocks for better slalom. Vast majority of it is pre-assembled, and the rest requires basic and rudimentary garage tools. Minor assembly is easy and takes 30 mins. to complete. No complex tools or skills needed for assembly, and a 13 year old could assemble this easily with no cable pulling, adjusting, and fixing involved. Simple assembly, quality machine, and really good price. Highly recommend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BarryS A great blower for the price
Ordered it on line and lucky enough to have it delivered the day the big storm in DC hit two week ago. Blower did great on snow depths up to about a foot but struggled a bit on higher amounts. The snow was dry and ended up being a big plus. I did try it as the snow melted just to clean up a bit, and the wet snow did cause it a bit of trouble. Ended up breaking a shear pin but good thing they provided "extras". While budget priced (got it on sale for $100 off), it could use more forward and reverse speeds, especially reverse. But. Overall for the price, I am very happy with the blower and would buy another one if needed.

I have used this snow blower for 2 winters including 2014-15's heavy snow in new england. This has worked great and come very handy in removing large amount of snow quickly.

I have only used the snow blower once, It did exactly what I expected.. Easy to put together and easy to use.. Only problem was trying to figure out where the extra bolts went..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Togo Best Christmas present ever.
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my self, i check around and this was the best blower for the price. I have not used it in the snow yet, but I started it up just to see how it works, very easy to operate, i can't wait for that first heavy snow fall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle Efficient but Hard to Handle
Starting with the negative, this blower is hard to turn. Going in a straight line, it's awesome, but when it's time to turn around and go back you have to slide the tires and almost pick it up off the ground. With the layout of my driveway, plus getting the sidewalk, I had to turn it a lot and it was tough. Considering the price, I'm fine dealing with the extra effort needed. But I would not recommend it for anyone in their retirement years unless they're in great shape.
Other than that, it's a solid machine. Throws snow a good distance. It's nice having 6-speeds to work with. It assembled in about an hour and started on the second pull.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ihatenicknames Good low end 2 stage snow blower
This is a low end 2 stage snow blower. It assembled pretty easily. Started with the electric (AC) starter really fast. I can't start it from the pull cord at all, but, as I said, pushing the electric button only for a fraction of a second started it. Don't like where the controls are mounted (above the grips); makes it hard for shorter people. I am going to try to flip them under the handle, but haven't done it yet. Only used it once on about 2 1/2 inches of snow with a melted and semi refrozen base and it worked very well. The self propelling worked up my somewhat steep driveway. Overall I think it will work for me.
