Questions & Answers


Is this a cordless machine ? Or does it need to be plugged in to use

Asked by Daniela November 28, 2017

Requires outdoor rated extension cord. 10 gauge is best.

What cord is better for this machine? 100 ft. 10 gauge or 12 gauge

Asked by DjHook December 16, 2016

When you buy the extension consider this * Get a cold weather extension cord. A cold weather extension cord will not get stiff and will be easier to move around out in the cold. * Snow Joe recommends a 12 gage extension cord. * Snow Joe also recommends that you don't use over a 100 foot extension cord. Hope this helps you out and plow ahead my friend!

What type of outdoor extension cord is needed to operate this blower?

Asked by TrapezeArtist November 8, 2015

14 gauge wire will carry 15 amps to 60 feet of wire. After 60 feet 12 gauge is required to carry the 15 amp load due to resistance in the wire. To protect the motor ,a 50 foot 14 gauge cord will suffice if long enough for your job. If not a12 gauge extension cord will be required(plugged into a 20 amp circuit ! )

Mean Blue Machine Hard at Work

It is small but if you are patient it can do a lot of work. We had lots of snow this winter and the SJ623E can move it from place to place to clean the driveway. You bring the snowbank to an acceptable height and the blower takes it from there. The blower works best when blowing directly to the front.

I have to do a disclaimer, the video and picture are of my older 621 model. I sold it to my nest door neighbor and the purchased the 623. We have not had any snow since it was delivered, but if it works like the lesser 621, I'll be thrilled. Easy to put together, easy to store and oh yeah, easy to use.

I bought this a month ago and was waiting a big snow coming until last Monday to test this E-snowblower. I am so happy that I got this because it is powerful with 15amp.

Decent, but beware the plug
Customer review from logo
I've used it once this winter since our snowfall hasn't been that much lately, but right away when trying to plug it in, there's a round shaped cover on the plug. My extension cord had a ground connector so the shape is not round. Therefore i had to use pliers to change the shape of the round cover. That concerned me because if i didn't like the blower, this might be cause for it not being accepted for return. Since the round cover is pretty stiff, the plug can't be tight so it would occasionally lose connection. Also this problem was expected: having to worry about the cord while using the machine. But the snow throwing aspect, it did the job. I'd have to use it more often to be more content with it, but that one time i used it it did the job.

Could not believe it
Customer review from logo
Like many folks shopping around for a snow blower, i had my reservations. Seriously. But it was on sale and the motor seemed big enough for what we needed. It arrived 2 days ago. Last night and this morning it was snowing heavy slush. I didn't think it could handle it because I shovelled a bit and it was heavy. So i stopped and did the sidewalk and a path from our front steps. I had brought it to the garage to store for another time when there was fluffier snow accumulation. Not this wet heavy stuff. But then I thought. What the heck. This is a test. It is a corded unit, so handling of the cord would be something to be careful about and cumbersome. I would not take off a star for this. I could not believe how it handled today's (Nov16-18) wet heavy slushy snow with ease. I was shocked. We have a laneway between the homes and it's quite a bit of effort to push the snow front or back. Especially when it's slush. It gets very heavy. The unit itself has auger blades that are made of metal with a rubber piece that mounts directly on to it. Only the rubber blades ever come close to the driveway or deck surface. Not the metal part. Some other models I saw have a slightly different design where the blade is completely rubber and only the ends and middle are bolted to the auger shaft. The only negative i can point out is that the front light only comes on when the unit is in operation. They have other units where the light is higher up and has it's own switch and it remains on when the unit is plugged in. This also has it's own switch. I thought it would stay on and I asked this question to the support chat and they said it does, but it does not, unless you have the lever going. Would be nice if it was on regardless if the auger is going or not. This would be handy on evening use. I also noticed a slight burning smell. Not sure what the source was from on the unit, but the unit was brand new and could be from first time use? There was no noticeable change in the performance. The tool to clear clogged snow is a nice addition that is way safer than using your fingers. Comparable models on competitors don't have this. Especially at this price point. It's small enough that we plan to bring this to the cottage to help us make the shovelling jobs easier, such as clear the snow to get to the front door after the snow plow contractor clears the driveway. And clear the deck & patio. Best pro is the price. I got it on sale about 1/3 the price of other brands. It did the job. And it did it well. Very well.

This product will *NOT* work with snow that is has any more moisture than normal. It *ONLY* works well with snow that is fluffy and dry. If you can make a medium hard snowball, this unit will be more work than using a shovel. As someone who's now long in the tooth but of strong build, too much weight, and a weak back, I bought this unit to do our front entrance walk (80 feet), rear oil tank fill path (50 feet) and to cut a 360 degree path around our house for maintenance and safety access (about 200 feet). I knew full well it wasn't remotely anything like a $800-$1,500 gas-powered 2-stage snow blower but expected it should, to some degree, be better than a shovel. Oh, how wrong I was. Soon after it arrived, we had a 6-8" snowfall with average moisture content for our location in central Massachusetts about 50 miles due west of Boston. It wasn't what we here call "wet" snow but, rather, what we call "normal". It's not dry, not wet, but just moist with some weight to it. For its very low cost, I did not expect the unit to work super well but did expect it to require less work than using a shovel. No way! I pushed the unit into the snow and it went nowhere. I then pushed extremely hard with all my might and it managed to spit out a wee bit of snow a few inches at a time. I then started sliding backward since the ground is always icy here when the temperature is at its usual winter temperature below 32. OK, so it's *really* weak. I then thought it would be interesting to see if I could help it work by shoveling a starter path along which I could use this unit to grab just 3-6 inches of the edge wall of the path I just shoveled. That sort of worked but it required pushing it with a LOT of force. Anyone of slight build and weight would have some trouble. Since the ground was the usual icy for winter, my feet were slipping and sliding. OK, so using all my might and going to insane lengths to try to get it to work, I managed to do just (and only) that. But that was at the expense of lot more time, a lot more energy, a lot more hassle and a lot more pain than just shoveling by hand. Especially since I had to push it back and forth 4-5 times the full length of the path to finish the job. If that all sounds ridiculous, it was! I think I was trying too hard to justify having spent the money and was hoping to find a method where it could save me some effort and pain in the back. To add to all that misery, with my feet slipping on the ice, I had to grab and manage the long extension cord on each of the 4-5 passes. You see, you can't just turn it around at the end and plow back the other way. The extension cord is then in front of you. Instead, you have to back up the entire length you traveled, whipping the extension cord out of the way as you do so. Then start all over moving forward again. Alternatively, I tried plowing multiple slices forward at a time, the length of my arms then moving back to the side, a few feet further along and repeating. That that turned out to be more hassle than backing up, clearing the cable out of the way, and pushing back forward for another long narrow slice. When done, I then had to pull back and re-coil 100 feet of extension cable then bring in and store the unit out of the way. After getting back inside, I I realized just how bad the unit was for our needs and how much it stressed my back in the process. I had to laugh, though, at the fact that I had to manually shovel the entire length of the walk in order to help a device I bought to avoid shoveling. Does it have any value? I find a usage scenario very hard to postulate. For example, even if you live in a place where you always get fairy tale snow that's all fluffy, it would then be far easy to get one of those wide 2+ foot wide push shovels that sweeps up and holds lot of snow at once. Ours is about 30" wide and can gather a lot of light snow. It works out to about 60% the width of our front walk so it's only two passes - albeit, with several pauses to tilt and empty. Even if you only get magic fluffy snow which the unit would probably clear well and you don't mind (1) pulling it out, (2) unraveling 100 feet of extension cord, (3) managing 100 feet of cord while you plow, (4) don't mind not being able to turn around and plow the other way, (5) re-winding 100 feet of cord when done, (6) bringing the unit back in and storing it; the problem of managing the long extension cord as you plow still makes the unit a big hassle. So, I gave it my best try, *really* wanted it to work and went to insane lengths to help it do its job. After all that, I think it's just an interesting idea at a great price point that does not work for any typical snowfalls I've seen in well over 1/2 century living in the NE. Note well, that if the snow is dry enough for this unit to work well, it will be much easier and less hassle to use either a push shovel, one of the many "ergonomic" shovels with a bent handle or, like one I just bought at the supermarket, a shovel with a 2nd shaft welded to the main shaft giving you a 2nd handle to lift and the dump snow with without having to bend over much at all (highly recommended). Bottom line: If you gets lots of normally moist snow your only choices are: 1. Take your time, do it by hand with an ergo-shovel. Do it in stages as snow falls so you don't end up with 12" to do. 2. Invest in a gas-powered 2-stage snow blower strong enough to do the job. But that also means its: (a) expensive $800-$1,500+ (b) big with its attendant problem of where to store it, (c) heavy to move around, (d) yearly maintenance hassle and costs (e) breakdowns and repair costs (maintenance contracts like Sears add a *lot* more to the cost). 3. Hire a part time handy person or school kids for a few bucks but trying to find/schedule them is a problem. 4. Hire a snow clearing company at VERY high prices and they don't like doing walks. They just want to run there truck plows as fast as they can to clear your driveway only. Ask about shoveling your walks and you'll blow a gasket when you get the estimate. What? You want me to get out of my truck and shovel your walk? Forgetaboutit! I think that sums it all up. I hope that helps.
