I bought this snow thrower about a month ago. The first day I got it, I opened the box and put it together in a snap. Actually, there wasnt much to it, just pull the handle up and lock it into place, put oil and gas in it and start it up. I think I had about 4" of snow on the ground that day. I started it up and went at it. Immediately I was surprised at how much snow it left behind! It was actually going right OVER about an inch of snow, almost like the blade was not touching the ground, but in fact it was. Not only that but when doing a row of snow when you turn around and stat to head back down the row again, it "spits" snow on the freshly cleaned area blowing it back on the area you just did. It does not handle wet snow at all! Trust me, not even slightly wet snow. And it is not light either, when pushing this thing through some heavy snow, it gets to be a real task after a while. This is a snow thrower for someone looking to use it on 3" or less of non wet snow. On the plus side, it runs good and starts right up on the second pull. Just like a new snow thrower should.... I guess....

I would spend a little more money and get a more heavy duty unit. You will thank me later !!

After reading some of the negative reviews below on this snow thrower, I decided to add my own review of this product. I have had it for two weeks now and I am very happy with it. I just removed between 6-8 inches of hard-packed wet snow from my backyard brick patio (It snowed about 4 days ago and I just got a chance to clean up the yard). This snow thrower was awesome. It shot that snow about 15 feet away (good considering how heavy the snow was). It never bogged down once I had the engine warmed up and the choke in the proper position so the engine ran really smooth.
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.

I went out this morning in 5°F weather, and started the machine on the second pull. I then proceeded to clear 6 inches of snow from the sidewalk around my corner home and two driveways. It accomplished the task in about 30 minutes and didn't bog down. The trick is to use full choke on starting, along with 3-4 primes from the priming pump, then keep the choke on half to full to run it (more cold, more choke). When I first tried running it with no choke at about 30°F it would bog down. A quite large unit I operated did the same thing. With dry snow it goes as quickly as you can. With wet snow you have to slow down and frequently clear the chute. Again, a large machine I used required frequent clearing as well. Oh, you don't mix gas and oil with this model. It's a 4 stroke. Simple. It stores in a small space and does the job. I'm glad I didn't buy a bigger one. I payed $297 near the end of last winter.

We had our first snow last night and it was a good one. I could feel my back protesting even before getting out of bed. I've never owned a snowblower before but I've used some big 2 stage blowers. I had no idea what to expect from this little guy. Situation: fresh snowfall, fairly dry snow but packed by the wind. My driveway blows in pretty good so the average depth was 4-6 inches with a couple of packed drifts up to about 18 inches. Some areas got packed down with the car before I could get the snowblower..

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.
