Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by A+ I recommand For the price is the best of his category. It's a charm in light snow. For heavy or icy snow just go back & foward dont choke the motor let it work its perfect for traveling I need to clean my house & my business so it's ligh enough and compact to put in my car. I recommand. January 17, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light Weight Thrower I have a large gas snow blower that I use for the driveway especially for wet heavy snow, but I wanted some thing that I get on and off the backyard rink when the snow is deeper. I have now had the thrower for 2 seasons. Easy to assemble. No mechanical issues, except operator driving over extension cord 3 times (not recommended). The thrower is light and easy to maneuver, but a bit under powered for my liking. I see that there is a 15 Amp model available (I don't know whether it was not available or I didn't see it), but for a few more dollars, I think I would be happier with being able to throw the snow 10-15 feet. I would be willing to give up the headlight as I never use it any way. I would also consider the cordless version (given my experience) but I worry about the power and duration of the charge. One small annoyance that I have is that you have to press and hold the start button at the same time you press the lever to get the machine throwing. January 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase ever. 2 years ago we got a smaller electric snow shovel and it broke at the beginning of this year. This unit takes a 3 hour job down to a one hour job. January 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Decent blower for small size driveways, deck and patios Out of the box, the blower took about 5 minutes to assemble with no tools required. I just had to tighten four wing nuts to assemble the handle and then attached the chute direction controller. This blower will not be cleaning my driveway since I already have a heavy duty gas blower but I could never use my gas blower on my 400 square foot deck and that’s where this unit comes very handy. Its light weight and extremely easy to maneuver. Majority of the material is plastic and that in fact works out great for me as it will not be scratching the stain of my deck. Auger is made of metal and so is the bottom handle frame. Operation is very straight forward, simply plug the power cable and you are rolling. I would strongly recommend using the power cord that is graded for outdoor use. The features I like the most are the built in 20 watt light and the chute direction control. Only the angle of the chute requires manual adjustment. I am very happy that I do not have to shovel the snow from my deck anymore. It’s a decent blower for small size driveways, deck and patios and I am all for it. November 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Easily portable, no maintenance required, built-in light This snow blower features pretty much everything that my mid-sized driveway will need to clear up the snow. I do not have to have the gasoline on hand and no worries of changing oil or preparing it for seasonal storage. A good quality outdoor capable extension cord is all I need to get me going. I love the fact that it has a built-in front light. The light kicks in with an On/Off button when the auger is engaged. Auger spinning seems powerful but that does not mean it will have no trouble lifting heavy and deep snow (12”+). A lot of parts are made of plastic and that makes it very light weight. On the contrary, that makes it very easy to handle and to move around. The wheels are 4 ¾” to be exact. To get the best performance out of it in deep snow, just work your way back and forth without pushing it too much. I don’t think it will have any trouble clearing 8” to 10” inches snow. Being able to control the chute direction from the back is a bonus, I love that. Also, the main handle is padded that provides good grip and will certainly help in freezing conditions. I store it with handles folded. With that, it literally covers 2 cubic foot area and that’s very convenient since I have a very small garage. I am happy that my back will be finally getting some break and I so look forward to its actual performance in coming months. November 2, 2014
