After taking free delivery and assembling the snow blower, mother nature did not send anymore snow. Therefore, I have no usage experience to form an opinion. However, it did start immediately, both electrically and manually. Wait until next year.

I won't miss our old Craftsman
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The time had come to replace the Craftsman blower that I bought when our youngest went off to College. I still need only a single stage with Electric start. The Squall 179E fills the bill Nicely.. The Fuel Level Window is some thing my old machine hadn't had [Nice]. It has a touch too much power when going down-slope on our driveway; ergo the 4 star rating. Everything else is a 5 star delight!

Save your money
Had this blower for a week now. I want my money back. Vibrates so much I don’t see how it can possibly last for long. Plus, auger bogs down and stalls in less than 2” of snow Run away from this unit.

Poor workmanship
Inexpensive, but you’ll pay for it in other ways! We assembled it, put gasoline in it, and the gasoline tank sank, making it impossible to screw on the gas cap. I opened up the machine and I couldn’t believe it was being hung mid air by two little wires that don’t stay connected it to the top of the machine. We had to take out the gas to transport it back to HD. We had a difficult time getting gas out. We had to disassemble the back to put the cap on the gas tank. When we did, we attempted to pull the tank out so that we could put the gas into our gas can. The lid to the tank does not seal and gas went everywhere: expensive snow boots, floor, machine, etc. I’ve got to figure out how to transport a greasy disgusting mess back to Home Depot wihour ruining our car. Wish I never would’ve bought this stupid machine!!!

I have not yet had a chance to use the unit but the quality of design could be better. As a number of folks have indicated, the gas tank will not stay in position. I tried a number of times to work with the original design but finally gave up and created my own fastening system. In addition, the attaching points on the red top cover are very weak. Two of these fastening points were broken on arrival. I should have taken the unit back but it was a Christmas present and I did not want my wife to feel like she made a bad decision.

We had a death in the family and we had to go east to watch the grand kids. Got back last night. Today is the first day to open the box. The gas tank isn’t attached. It fell in when we filled it. The snow blower won’t start. Went to Home Depot and they can’t help because it’s over 30 days.
