Top Customer Reviews
I was running this in snow that was higher than the top of the engine -- mostly powdery. It handled that fine and throws it further than I need. It did stall out once down by the road, when I got aggressive with the wet heavy stuff the plow leaves for me, but that's to be expected.
I was debating between a single or dual stage, and decided to go with this single stage because I wanted some exercise walk at my own pace. Price was also a factor.
Setup was easy. Just lift up the handle, install the snow chute and put in oil and gas and you’re ready to go.
Finally had a day of snow (about 4 inches) and it worked like a champ. Cut through the snow like nothing and threw it far … but then I got to the end of the driveway where the snow was more packed from the snow trucks and the auger stopped. I quickly pulled it out of the snow and couldn’t get the auger to engage again.
Amazon is amazing as they quickly sent me a replacement. I’ll give this new one a go on the next snow fall and report back on how it does.
- electric start, easy pull start
- Clearing path – 22” wide is larger then most single stage snow blowers and 12.5” high for larger snow fall
- Good engine power and auger size
- 3 year warranty, made in the USA
- Briggs brand – makes the best / most durable small engines
- Price – you will be hard pressed finding a snow thrower with these features at this price unless on end of season discount sales
- Durability – auger stopped spinning on first use
- Self-propulsion is a bit awkward when going down driveway. It pulls you and if you are not careful you can fall.
