I would spend a little more money and get a more heavy duty unit. You will thank me later !!
The engine started with the second pull and about 7 pushes of the prime button on full choke. I decided to put in Mobil 1 5W30 synthetic in it to offer the best protection from cold weather starts. Although the engine is small, it is well suited to this machine. I am not concerned with straining it because it went through really heavy snow today without a problem.
You must know how to use a snow thrower of this size in order to get the full benefits of it. Another reviewer said that it left about an inch of snow behind when he used the machine. The only way this would happen is if the user presses down on the push bar which lifts the front of the blower. When using this machine, make sure to push forward, not down on the push bar. The auger will keep in contact with the pavement and clean up all of the snow straight to the ground.
Another reviewer said that the wheels get snow stuck on them making the snow thrower impossible to push. I don't see how this could happen unless you dumped the snow throwner onto a pile of snow and expected the wheels not to get snow on them.
Out of curiousity, I opened up the side of the machine which contains the belt drive system for the auger.Read more ›
Result: awesome. It started just fine (choke and 6 primes). Really easy cord pull. I expected it to be under powered but it's really not bad at all. You can't plow fully through deep snow. I took a 1/2 to 3/4 swath and it worked fine. It did have some problem with the tire packed areas, but all I did was loosen it with a shovel then ran it again. No problem. It gets down to the cement just fine, if you keep the handle pushed up (front down). In fact it rained a bit before snowing so there was some ice underneath. It even got most of the ice. The rubber blades pull it through the drift just fine so it's no problem pushing it through. It's really easy to maneuver, especially compared to the big blowers. I didn't have a lot of room beside our 2nd car that I hadn't moved off the driveway before the snow. I had lots of control over the blower so I managed to really close to the car with no fear. It never jammed or plugged up once. I suppose it might if the snow was really wet, but I really can't see that being a major problem based on what I've seen so far. Speaking of the rubber blades, I have a water shutoff valve that protrudes a bit through the cement in winter. I'd forgotten where it was. The rubber blades handled it perfectly. No damage to either the blades or the valve. Perfect.Read more ›
