My 5' 6" 140 lb 75 year old can operate it. It has 6 forward and 2 reverse and an engine throttle control. Wheels are locked, for drive purposes, so sharp corners mar be a little difficult.

Hello. Unfortunately, there isn't a real way for me to judge based on height and weight, but it shouldn't be an issue. The handles may be a little higher on your body, but still operational. Thank you for your question.

Hello - We are not quite sure what you mean by easy to operate for a woman. The Yard Machine 26" Two-Stage Snow Thrower is self-propelled and has an electric start option which should make it easy for anyone to use. Thank you for your question.

Answer: 
The question really wasn't answered. I'll restate...does it come with the electric start cord? If not can I use a standard home extension cord (heavy duty of course)? HD doesn't have the part number you referred to, and I would rather not buy an overpriced cord if I can use a normal electrical extension cord.

26 in. 208cc 2-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 57.

This newer model is a piece of junk. There isn't any way to keep the hand controls in the on position to prevent hand fatigue. The auger on the chute crank doesn't even connect with the teeth on the chute. You have to keep turning the chute by hand. It doesn't handle heavy wet snow, and even the fluffy stuff it only throws 5 or 6 feet. When the temp is in the 20's the last thing you want to do is having to keep turning the chute by hand or unplugging the chute. I wish I had known all of this beforehand, I'd never have bought it. The only Pro is: it's lighter weight

Arrived in a beat up, open crate. Still in a warranty repair shop because it would not assemble like instructions stated - Cables too tight. Shop has to order a new set of lower handles - ones on machine were wrong for model. Guess QC checks were out of the question here as there was no way it would function Purchased on 10/21/16. Going on two months now. Rick Marinari

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the price. This is a basic 2 stage machine. The quality is excellent. It is very simple to assemble; a 15 minute job if you pre-read the instructions. It does not have any extras (heated grips, headlight, etc.) but it is a workhorse. The electric start is a blessing. my 25 foot extension cord fit into the 3 prong male receptacle easily. The 26 inch width is a nice plus. This is my 3rd Yard Machine snow clearing device. The first was left in Wisconsin as part of a home sale. I still have the 2 stage. I have never been disappointed by their quality. DO THE MAINTENANCE, and FOLLOW THE FUEL INSTRUCTIONS for a happy long relationship with this machine.

Unit was well protected in shipping container. Easy set-up,started first time. Found 1 problem, 1 of the reverse positions was forward. Had an earlier version of this model and had no problems with it in 20 years. The only thing I don't like is the discharge chute and how it is attached. Only time will tell how this holds up. The motor runs smoothly. I expect that it will do an occasional heavy snowfall without any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loving it! I just got it a few weeks ago, and only used it once so far to move 5 inches of snow. For a big machine it's light. I didn't have to use the reverse gears, and the chute blows the snow far. I'll see how effective it is when I get a bigger accumulation. That's why I'm giving it 4 stars for now, but so far so good.
