Top Customer Reviews
Sunday, December 11 at 9 am...... I cleared another 9 inches of wet heavy snow and the battery** still had 1 out of 3 lights to indicate battery** power. I discovered I could save power by turning the auger off more frequently when positioning the Snow Joe. I was not sure if the battery** would discharge faster from starting and stopping the auger, or from constantly running it while clearing snow. Now I have a definite confirmation. I also discovered using the slowest speed saves battery power, and you aren't going to move any faster in 3rd gear when clearing deep or heavy snow. The Snow Joe has plenty of torque and the tires are very good quality and grip well ( as I found out when I cut a path next to my car by driving the Snow Joe into the top portion of 16 inches of snow, and then stopped the auger***, moved into reverse, and cleared the bottom portion of the 16 inches. This was a 12 foot long and it was made by cutting about 2-3 foot long sections of the the top of the 16 inches, and then cleaning up the bottom and moving forward.
I will update as the Lake Erie Lake Effect Snow continues. We are expecting another 18 - 24 inches on Sunday. I was very lucky to have purchased and received this the day before the storm started. The Snow Joe has definitely made it possible to do the impossible. I never could have cleared so much snow in such a short period with a shovel, and I am in pretty good shape and have shoveled for the last 2 winters without a problem.
The next day brought 3 inches of wet snow in the morning and another 4 inches in the evening. Then there were some days of nothing noteworthy.
Today is Thursday December 15, I cleared 8 inches of snow out of the driveway only this morning. The battery used 1 cell. I had and appointment so I recharged and cleared another 4 inches in the driveway, 10 inches on the 2 sidewalks, I shoveled a 30 foot path across the front lawn for the stray cats we feed (so they can get to the feeding area), and then I use the Snow to cut the edges of the path so I can always clear it with the Snow Joe, and then I cut the path next to my car I mentioned above.
I will log every time I remove snow this winter to record the durability of the Snow Joe in a typical stormy Western New York Winter
**battery - the manual has a warning about discharging the battery completely. If the battery is completely drained of power it can be irreversibly damaged, and the only indicators are on the battery so I have to open the plastic door that shields the 2 batteries to check the battery level...... only one problem.... there is snow all over it, my gloves are wet because I am in a snow storm, and if I open the door to check the battery more moisture certainly will enter the battery compartment. I feel the information about damage caused by discharging the battery completely should be furnished to the consumer before the consumer decides to finalize his/her purchase. Although, I was not sure how to tell if the battery was completely discharged without opening the plastic door on the battery compartment until I noticed 2 things.
1) The Snow Joe will throw snow LESS FAR when the battery is weakening (again, this was wet heavy snow).
2) One time I depleted the battery further than usual. The Snow Joe would run ONLY the auger OR the drivetrain when the battery was very low.
**another note - there is a tag on the Drive Trigger that says "When operating, come to a COMPLETE STOP before switching directions" (I'll add the photo so you can read the warning about voiding the warranty). This tag seems just a little vague to me (i.e. does this mean do not push the directional and speed buttons from forward to reverse while the drive trigger is engaged? Or does it mean don't pull the Snow Joe backwards while still engaging the Drive Trigger in a forward gear? Or does it mean I have to drive the Snow Joe in a totally straight line while moving forward or backward? I don't know if this is a standard for all snow throwers/snow blowers because this is my first snow thrower/snow blower ever, but I have used a few gas powered snow throwers/snow blowers during my younger years in some of the famous Buffalo storms and never even thought about stopping before changing directions. And while talking about old snow throwers/snow blowers, I do remember having to move my hands from the steering mechanism to change gears in the 70's and 80's. The Snow Joe has the controls right on the steering grips, it makes life very easy while using this product.
*** a note about the auger - there is a warning in the manual about turning the auger off before moving in reverse.
**** 2 more general information notes
1) The Snow Joe does not have neutral gear (at least not that I have found). I built it in my living room and tried to pull it to the front door, I pulled it a couple inches and realized the gear Snow Joe was in gear. So I loaded the batteries and drove it out the door.
2) As I get to know The Snow Joe more I realize it automatically senses the load that the auger intakes, and it adjusts the thrust of the auger dependent on the resistance on the auger and the discharge assembly. I mention this because if you are going to clear 2 inches of snow you will want to start in the center of the driveway because the Snow Joe will only throw the snow about 6 feet. When you pass through the area where the snow was deposited the Snow Joe may increase the speed if the discharge assembly and throw the snow further because is weighs more.
I would have given this product a 5 start rating but I made my notes above about my concerns. I will say that I am more impressed every time I use the Snow Joe, and I will be more thoroughly impressed if it lasts through more than 1 Western New York Winter. Also, I am including photos of the box the Snow Joe Arrived in. It was tattered and re-taped and I almost told the FedEx guys to put it back on the truck because I was expecting the Snow Joe to be damaged. I am going to assume the box was in pretty bad condition before it was sent to me because it had a lot of secondary packing tape on it (hopefully you can see the in the photos. I am happy to say the unit was not damaged but the 3 nut/bolt assemblies on one side of the auger system were loose (so I recommend checking your unit very thoroughly if you purchase this product). Also, there is a plastic oval-shaped wheel that turns the Discharge Chute when you turn the "Handle Knob + Chute Crank Retainer" assembly (as named in the manual). The plastic oval shaped wheel was not engaged when I received the Snow Joe. There is a simple steel closed wrench included with the Snow Joe (similar to something you would receive with a shelving unit you need to assemble yourself) but there is not enough space to actually rotate the wrench and tighten the nut/bolt assembly on the oval wheel that turns the Discharge Chute. So I recommend having a socket wrench set available when you perform the minor assembling necessary to use this product for the first time (I think the nuts are all 1/4").
Overall this is a really cool robot and it has plenty of power when dealing with Lake Erie Lake Effect Snow. I recommend cleaning the snow from every part of the Snow Joe with forced air (100 pounds of pressure) from a compressor and a blower nozzle. This was the most effective cleaning method I have found yet.
Shortly after my initial review below, it was quite obvious by my second use of the snow blower that due to poor packaging..it wasn't just the chute mount as I mentioned below that had been damaged but also auger housing. I found snow leaking on the side and the snow blower couldn't be balanced/leveled properly. I contacted Snow Joe directly, worked with them directly and received a replacement. Unfortunately about 3/4th done with my driveway the auger motor of snow blower #2 stopped working. I worked with Snow Joe received a replacement and experienced the same auger motor problem with snow blower #3. It's a pity because until the auger motor quit, the snow blower was clearing the snow off the driveway just as you expect any two-stage gas snow blower would.
After three snow blowers, Snow Joe decided to refund my money (I never asked for a refund as my goal was to have a working Snow Joe in my garage). I had to spend $60 on packing and material to return the final snow blower but in all three cases Snow Joe sent me shipping labels. So for $60 and my time spent returning snow blowers (more of a pain than the money), I had use of the snow blower. I think Snow Joe actually lost money on this deal due to shipping, support, and replacement costs.
So with having three snow blowers that didn't work, why is my final rating standing at three-stars? It mainly comes down to the great customer service I received from Snow Joe. Between emails and phone conversations, Snow Joe treated me right. Also, it's my hope I just had a string of back luck as I can see real potential in this snow blower. When it worked, it worked great. Hopefully, Snow Joe will have all the quality control issues and design flaws worked out for Winter 2017-2018.
So far, many of the reviewers for this two-stage Snow Joe are either first time buyers of a snow blower or graduating from a single-stage snow blower. As someone that has owned a two-stage gas snow blower for the past 20 years, I wished there had been more reviews from previous two stage gas owners before I purchased this snow blower. After using the snow blower (iON24SB-XR 5.0 Ah) for the past two days, I’ve concluded this cordless snow blower isn’t as good as a gas snow blower. However, if you’re looking for an alternative to gas, noise, and engine maintenance this cordless Snow Joe is a reasonable compromise. It definitely will do its primary job of clearing snow off your driveway with a few caveats.
I’ve debated whether I want to keep or return the Snow Joe, but I’m leaning toward keeping it because it’s “good enough” and I am indeed tired of dealing with gas, oil, noise, and sluggish engine starts that come with a gas engine. Currently, I’m sitting at 4 stars with this snow blower. If this was a gas snow blower it would get 3 stars but it definitely earns an extra star because it doesn’t need gas.
Here are my impressions:
Size Doesn’t Matter – This snow blower definitely can throw snow. When I first put the snow blower together, my first impression was that it was smaller than I had expected. However, I quickly found that as long as long as you have power in your batteries it shouldn’t have a problem clearing up to a foot of snow. I went through 3 inches and 7 inches of powdered snow with no problem. My neighbors with their larger more expensive snow blowers were confused how this small thing could pick up so much snow. Some reviewers complained that it doesn’t do well with wet snow but almost all two-stage snow blowers have problems with wet snow.
Quicker Startup, Less Maintenance, and Less Noise – To start this snow blower it’s just a matter loading batteries into the compartment and then go. No priming the engine and for the first time in 20 years after clearing the driveway my clothes or hands don’t smell like gas and fumes. I’m also getting to that age where noise is starting to bother me so my ears are very pleased with the Snow Joe. In fact, this cordless snow blower is quiet enough when running that it felt odd to me to hear my neighbor running his own gas snow blower from a distance.
Packaging Needs Improvement – As others have mentioned, the packaging could be improved. With the thin box and weak packing material, my snow blower arrived with the fastener for the chute clean-out tool broken. I feel I’m lucky nothing else broke during transit and I plan on calling Snow Joe to get the broken part replaced.
Awful, Awful, Awful Handles – Snow Joe, what were you thinking? As others have mentioned, the handles are uncomfortable as you have to squeeze the drive/auger grips from the bottom with your fingers. For good reason, most two-stage snow blowers have you press the grip from top with the weight of your hand. Less fatigue on both hands and elbows that way. If I decide to return the snow blower, it will be because of this poor design choice by Snow Joe. Also, the “safety button” on the auger trigger needs to go or have the ability to lock in place as it was cumbersome to engage without two hands. Snow Joe, when you do improve this handle/grip I’d like to have us “first generation” buyers be able to retrofit this year’s model with the new handles/grips.
More Battery Power Needed – My 5.0 Ah batteries lasted only a half-hour. I had to wait for three hours to recharge the batteries before I could finish the second half of my driveway (40 feet long with three car garage width). Snow Joe does have a 6.0 Ah option, but I think you’re better off saving the money buying the 5.0 option and use the savings to buy a second set of batteries. The 6.0 Ah bundle only gets you extra 10 minutes of operations than the 5.0 Ah bundle. My recommendation for a normal residential driveway:
Single car driveway: 5.0 Ah option
Double car driveway: 5.0 Ah option + extra batteries or 6.0 Ah option
Triple car driveway: 5.0 Ah option + extra batteries
Build and Material of the Snow Blower – My gas snow blower lasted 20 years and I abused the heck out of it. I think I’ll be lucky if this new snow blower lasts 10 years with its plastic parts and lighter material. Realistically though, I’m not sure today’s gas snow blowers would last 20 years unless you’re willing to fork over a lot of money for the elite/professional lines. So given the price of this snow blower, I’m OK with the expected 10 years. Also, being that this snow blower is battery powered there is a lot less vibration, wear and tear than a gas snow blower. In other words, plastic on a cordless/electric snow blower should last longer than it would on a vibrating gas snow blower.
Not Fast, Not Slow – Some reviewers complain that the snow blower is too slow but I found the speeds reasonable for a two-stage snow blower. The three speeds are very comparable to the first three gears of my gas snow blower. My gas snow blower has a 4th gear that I seldom use (too fast with snow/ice on the drive) and won’t miss. What I will miss though is my 5th gear which is intended to be used without the auger engaged so you move to your destination quickly. The Snow Joe is difficult to push/pull if the motors are not being used.
