First, just a little bit of background. This is not my first Greenworks product. I have a lawn mower, leaf blower and power washer, and I have had great experiences with all of them.
I'll start from the beginning. My first order was actually lost by UPS, so I can't fault Greenworks for that. Amazon was great about sending me out another one. I received the second one, put it together, and waited for our next snow here in the Denver area. It turned out to be quite a snow storm for us, and when I woke up we had roughly six inches of light snow on the ground, with more to come. I decided that since this is a light blower, I should go ahead and get started. Well, this thing powered through those six inches like a champ! I was thoroughly impressed, and thought I had done well with my purchase.
Around three hours later, another couple inches had accumulated, so I thought I'd go out and give the blower another spin. The battery showed that it was fully charged, so I put it back in the blower and got started. After going through about 1/3 of our driveway, my problems began. All of a sudden, the blower just shut off. I restarted it, and as soon as it hit snow again, it shut off again. This behavior is actually somewhat similar to the behavior of the lawnmover I have when its battery is low, so since I have three batteries, I thought I would try a fresh battery. Unfortunately, it still did the same thing with both of my other batteries. So, my next thought was that it might be too cold. It was, after all, decently cold outside (but still above zero). So, I finished that round with the shovel, and put the blower back in the garage with a space heater with the thought that I'd try again later.
A few hours later saw another few inches of snow, so I tried again. Same problem! This time, I decided to put up with the annoyance of restarting the thing constantly (sometimes every two feet, sometimes every 20), and finished the driveway. I decided to call Greenworks, and they told me that they were getting calls from a lot of people having this exact problem, and that I should just return it since I was still within the return period. That night, I put in for a replacement from Amazon.
I recently received the replacement, and today was our first snow that I could test it on. Well, it does the same thing! Again I called Greenworks, and they told me that they are indeed still having problems with these, but also that they are having the same issue much more frequently with their 80 volt model.
So, now I go to return the replacement. I will not be getting another one, but rather I am getting my money back. I'm left to wonder if Greenworks even tested these in the snow! Despite my experience with this product, though, I would still recommend Greenworks' other offerings.
UPDATE 12/27/2016: Please read the other negative reviews of this product. It seems many others are still having the same issue, and that Greenworks has not fixed their product offering.
First snow was very wet and packed down but only 2-3 inches - this handled it just fine but didn't throw it very far, maybe 8 ft or so. Plenty of distance for me and I cleared my driveway way before my neighbors with their shovels... I found out later that they all had issues with their gas powered blowers (normal troubles from sitting all year). I was having enough fun I even decided to go through the water slush at the end of the driveway that the plow pushed up at the end - water flying everywhere was fun.
Second snow more of the same but I also did my neighbor's driveways. The battery dies in 30-35 min but as long as you don't store it in the cold it did not shut down for me.
Third snow was 8+ inches and very fluffy - this threw the snow 20 feet no problem at all. I even went through the packed stuff from the snow plow for good measure, though this required a couple of passes for that. It stopped twice through that but it was very deep. Again I did my neighbors' driveways (they are still waiting on parts for their gas blowers)... several of whom are now looking at electric snowblowers.
If you aren't expecting a miracle this works very nicely and is WAY easier than shoveling. Just keep the battery in the house beforehand.
