30 in. 357cc 2-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Machine If you are looking for a machine to get the job done in tough conditions this one will do just fine. I have owned it for 3 years now and I'm very happy. We get some huge snow falls here (12-30" is not uncommon 10+ times a year) this thing has never let me down. My best friend has the same machine in yardworks. His machine throws a little better but mine is quieter. I just did an impeller mod I found on YouTube and mine now throws just as far. I change the oil once a season and it is still pretty clean at the end. I'm sure there is better machines out there but if you are looking for a great blower at a really fair price. Look no further.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Can do better A neighbor operated one of these units for 15 years without issue. My unit started right up and chewed through up to 30 inches of snow like a champ....for about 3 hours. It then developed a nasty vibration when the augers were rotating and fried the auger drive belt. At the direction of MTD I took the unit to an authorized service center and left a deposit for the work. Unit is still with the service center awaiting common parts (drive belt) and "diagnosis". If you're looking for a durable snow blower backed by great customer service this one might not be for more you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This guy moves snow!! The November 7ft snow in 3 days killed the drive in my 15yr old 28" 9hp North Star snowblower. Reading the reviews suggested that this 30" 357cc (~13-14hp) Yard Machine should be a good replacement for my old snowblower. I must admit to only using the new snowblower 3 times, but I have to report that it really moves deep snow. With my old machine I had to blow half the driveway north and the other half south so that the blower could reach past the driveway edges. The new Yard Machine snowblower lets me go from one edge to the other, blowing the snow in the direction the wind is blowing. The snow from the first run down the furthest edge of the driveway clears the other edge of the driveway and goes way out in my yard. My neighbor that was watching from across the street told me he was amazed on how I was blowing snow clear over tall pine trees. Setup was easy, but the instructions were written by someone that likes to write puzzles. Be prepared to jump all over the manual on setup. I was easily able to cut through over 2.5ft of show with the Yard Machine. The controls are easy to use. I have not yet tried the electric starter, the engine starts easily manually even at 0-degrees. The cost for the Yard Machine is much lower than other brands with similar features. While the Yard Machine really moves snow, it isn't all sweetness and light. There are a few issues. The machine is heavy and can only turn by allowing one wheel to slip on the ground. There isn't a clutch or differential in the drive that allows the wheels to turn independently. Both wheels are locked together. Doing a lot of turning can wear you out quickly, especially at age 74. The other issue is that the top of the snow chute can't be adjusted for angle. One could easily take out windows and put holes in house siding if the chute is directed at the house. My old machine would allow me to move the chute down when working near the house. All the controls work through thin cables. I wonder on how long they will last? A minor complaint is that the instruction manuals are printed on paper that wouldn't serve as newspaper. I will probably copy the manuals to better weight paper. Considering all the positives and negatives, I view the 30" 357cc Yard Machine snowblower an excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No surprises, great machine This is my second Yard Machine snow blower. The first one lasted 14 years and only died because of a mistake on my part. This one arrived late in the season but I used it on several large packed areas of old snow and it worked great. One word of warning, the picture and description don't match. The photo showes a machine without the joy stick and that is what I got. The description cliams to have a joy stick schute control. Also the head light could use a louver to keep the light out of your eyes when it's dark out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product serves my needs The size of this unit would be better if power steering was available

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied so far This snow thrower cut through a foot of snow with no problem, tossing snow 20-30 feet. The true test will be its durability but my new 30" blower replaced a 15 year old, 24" Yard Man which still works great. Hope this one lasts as long!
