The unit has a joy stick type chute control that works quite well.
Daniel Jacobson
This snowblower says it is 208 cc, but horsepower is a better measurement for me, so if you were wondering, the manual rates the briggs and straton engine as 6HP.

The electric start is one of the best features, it started right off every time with no problems.

I bought this snowblower a week ago, just before we got 24 inches of snow in 2 days. The biggest thing confusing me while shopping for snowblowers is that they all seem to advertise engine size as cc, which does'nt mean much really. This snowblower says it is 208 cc, but horsepower is a better measurement for me, so if you were wondering, the manual rates the briggs and straton engine as 6HP. Assembly was pretty quick, just a couple of cleavis pins and a hex bolt. You also should adjust the skid pads as they are positioned all the way up for shipping. The engine was even already full of oil. Starting the snowblower was easy using the electric starter - I didn't realize that it plugs into a wall outlet, but it wasn't a big deal for me. The headlight is actually more useful than I thought it would be. The fastest reverse speed is still pretty slow, but you can always just pull it back yourself if you're in a hurry. Forward speeds are very adjustable, but you will probably use the slowest speed most of the time if you live in a climate that has you looking at this beast in the first place.
This snowblower had plenty of power to tackle our record setting 1 day snowfall of 16 inches. It throws really far, like 20-30 feet far. This modle comes with a four way control joystick for directing the throw chute left, right, up and down. The movement of the chute is way easier than my last snowblower, and I'm glad I paid extra for that feature. The only issue I really had was that there is a bit too much "play" in the chute control, so it tended to wander a bit if left on it's own too long. I'm guessing there is an adjustment I can make somewhere to fix that. The tires seemed to have decent traction, although they did tend to spin when going through the plow burm at the start of the driveway.

I came across this unit online where the page said "returned because of torn box". The price was way down and with free shipping why not! The unit arrives and had a small tear in the box, nowhere near any part of the snow blower which was in perfect condition! Great deal.

The machine itself is sturdy yet much lighter than my 2-ton 50's era unit that was more work than shoveling. Setup took 15 minutes. I use the electric start, and the headlight is very handy. With six FWD speeds it's easy to match up to the amount of snow you are working through. I have yet to clog the unit even in slush. The big diameter tires get good traction and the engine has plenty of power. I haven't found it necessary to go past 3/4 throttle yet. The unit has a joy stick type chute control that works quite well. You can steer the chute much more quickly then the old crank jobs.

Given the initial quality, features, and how well the unit performs I give it 5 stars even at normal price.

I bought this 26" Yardman Snowblower during the Winter of 2006. I use it to clear my driveway that receives on average 27 feet of snow per year in the mountains of Colorado.

First a comment about the price. At the time of my writing this review, the price for this item on Amazon is 50% higher than what I paid on Amazon 6 years ago. That's too much of an increase.

This snowblower is a beast. It always starts easily with one pull of the cord. The Tecumseh motor is loud (ratta tatta!!), vibrates the entire machine, and is strong. I've never had the feeling that this machine needed more power.

Its not a Honda. Its a beast. Its a low tech solution that does the job.

The good is that it continues to work for me in my high volume snow environment. I like the joystick controlled snow chute that allows changes in direction while in operation. Much better than having to stop to change chute direction using turn cranks etc. Replacement parts are readily available on the MTD parts website but I wouldn't exactly call them cheap. I've replaced normal wear parts such as skid plates etc. and had to replace a poorly designed spring clip part on one of the handles.

Another "good" for me is the 26" width. The 24" machines seem a little too narrow for me and the bigger units are too bulky to fit in my garage.

The bad. Probably the biggest "bad" is that the drive mechanism that drives the wheels and propels the unit has some problems. At start-up it works fine but after a few passes it starts to slip causing me to have to push the unit to keep it moving. After several more passes of intermittent drive slippage it eventually sorts itself out and the propulsion system works fine for the rest of my driveway.

After a blizzard, which gifted us in the north east 14 inches of snow for christmas, i decided it was time to buy a snow blower. After researching a bit i chose this product. It was received within a week and a half, although I shall warn that it was delivered by a forklift...so i received the snowblower, its massive box and it's massive pallet it was resting on :) )

Luckily? Today I was given the opportunity to use my new toy. 30 inches of snow!...
With the electric starter, had no problems at all getting it going.( to prep it all I had to do was add some oil, add the gas, and lower the skid guards as another reviewer said.)

This snow blower is a beast. I was able to do my two two car drive ways and a long walkway with little trouble. The only issue I had was due to the nature of the snow (very thick, wet and heavy), and the fact I live on a hill, I had some traction problems. I'd recommend to anyone in a similar situation as I to get some chains to toss on the tires, which I plan on doing.

30 inches of snow and one clog. Not too bad. The headlight is a godsend for those night jobs you're forced to do.

The only other issue I have with the design of this blower, is the chute. It moves freely and easily when you want it to, but also jumps a bit on its own. Also, the chute does not have as full a range as other blowers I've used. It shoots staight ahead of you or to your right. Not a major problem, just a pet peeve.

Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase and hope it to last many more winters come.
