Top Customer Reviews
I have an electric, extension corded model, which seems slightly more powerful than the gas model, but the safety interlock switch mechanism has been touch and occasionally it won't start at all. When it does work it's awesome, sans moving the cord, which though not too bad isn't really a hassle. The problem is I'm on a corner lot, and the extension cords just don't go that far.
Thus, when I learned about the Snow Joe ION, I was excited, and since it's snowing a lot this year I ordered one.
So far, I've used it twice on 1 and then 2 inches of light fluffy snow, however I have also used it to clear plowed, somewhat icy snow at the street corner and the driveway, though not extensively. I was pleased that it handles it - you have to rock in and out, it'll slow and stop if you push in to hard, but it was making progress roughly equivalent to maybe 80% of the gas engine on the big plow leavings.
The fluffy snow was being thrown farther than the gas engine throw it, but not as far as the corded electric. It is quieter than both the other throwers.
I really like the flashlight.
It has a powered chute aiming control.
The battery comes out easily so it can be charged in the house and kept warm for maximum power
It seems to handle light snow very well
The handle and chute assembly knobs seem to have nylon lock nuts in them and thus probably won't shake loose
So far the battery seems to be holding up quite well and allows me to clear my doubly width driveway (20x30?) and about 160
feet of of sidewalk on a charge, at least in light snow.
It is really quiet.
It throws snow far enough, comparable to the gas one.
It doesn't smell like fumes!
It doesn't move along the sidewalk as smoothly as the other throwers. It seems to red a bit further down and scrape more.
The handle assembly seems just a bit more flexible/less sturdy than the others I have. Part of that may be due to having an adjustable joint to give you a choice of handlebar angles, or it may be due to the single U shaped fastener further down, instead of having a pair of fasteners. Over time I'll be watching this to see if it becomes an issue - it works okay so far, it just feels less solid than I want.
The knobs holding down the snow exit chute seem tight but it still seems to go out of adjustment - both of my others have a more firm tooth grabbing mechanism that holds the chute angle better.
Other than adjusting the sturdiness/feel issue, if it were up to me and I was planning their next release, I'd stick a second batter pack holder on the machine and let you optionally equip a second battery pack, and when running on two batteries I'd give it a mode switch for more torque/power, so you can switch to higher amp consumption but power through heavier or wetter snow and plow piles more efficiently, or set it back on normal and have longer life (not that I've needed either really so far, I just think it wouldn't cost much to do it).
Overall, though, I'm quite pleased with it so far, and I may bump up to 5 stars later after I've used it more.
======= Updates: =======
I've now used it a lot more, including on a 4-5" snow, though it wasn't a wet snow, it has been too cold:
It handled the near 5" well.
It can handle the tall 2 foot drifts on the boulevard okay, it just slows down and might need 2-3 passes.
The rubber cover that screws down over the chute direction switch shook loose. That may or may not have anything to do with the next con -
The snow chute has ceased to rotate reliably. Sometimes I am able to get it to move with the switch but mostly not lately. It will spin by hand, with some force.
I do not know if it was some ice that got in someplace or if there is a wiring fault - I finally brought it into the basement to melt/thaw out and the motor is spinning it now,
we'll see how it does outside in the subzero later.
I'm still happy with it and still rate it 4 out of 5, but I'm not bumping it up.
========== Update with a 6" heavy snowfall ==========
Twin cities got a surprise snow dump today. I'm not sure snow totals elsewhere, but it seems to me we had 6" here, and there were a few more inches on my sidewalks that had blown in earlier this week that I was waiting for todays snow to handle. The blower worked pretty well in the heavier 6" snow, and just slowed down a bit as it went, and when I hit the deeper piles where it had blown it it just slowed down more.
Now, I'm on a corner, with a double wide 35 foot driveway. This was the first time I'd drained a battery dead before I've finished blowing, but I got the sidewalk all around and 85% of the driveway, which is impressive. I did have the problem with the snow chute not working, at first, but once it had warmed a bit by running it worked fine. My current theore is that the chute rotation switch triggers a relay somewhere down in the machine, and that that really is stuck when it's really cold. Warming it up bf running it for awhile or by bringing it in the house awhile seems to make it work, thus my theory.
So, despite the chute issue, I'm going to bump it up to 5 stars because of how it handled the deep snow today.
The iON18SB uses a high voltage LIon rechargeable battery which on a full charge will give you about 45 mins run time in average snow conditions. The deeper and heavier the snow is, the less run time you will get. The torque from the electric motor is every bit as strong as the Toro electric and slightly weaker than an equivalent gasoline engine.
I can easily clear my driveway, front entrance walk and part of the sidewalk on my corner lot on one battery if the snow is average weight and about 2"-4" deep. Recent heavy snows of about 6-8" burn up one battery just for the driveway. In my area, a second battery is a must. I'm sure eventually someone will make a non OEM replacement, but right now the battery is expensive and hard to find outside of SnowJoe itself.
I was really impressed with the ability of the motor to clear deep, heavy snow. Using the two pass technique, I've cleared 12-16" depths on my driveway and icy mounds at the end of the driveway thrown up by the snow plows. The lightweight of the mostly plastic body makes it easy to manipulate and shave off the tops of deep drifts. As such, it is definitely a machine designed for subdivision homes, not prolonged heavy duty rural use.
Before purchasing, consider the total cost of the blower and a spare battery. You don't really need a second charger. Also consider the savings on fuel, oil and tune ups that you'd incur with a gasoline model. Best of all, I can clear at all times of the day or night because it is very quiet, about the same as an electric broom.
