The Vortex 2490 three-stage snow blower takes snow throwing to the next level. Not only does the Vortex 2490 three-stage snow blower come equipped with Touch 'n Turn® power steering, heated hand grips and Just One Hand® operation, it features a third stage of snow removal.

The large X-Trac™ tires provide extra traction when breaking through barriers of snow left at the bottom of your driveway.

  • Heated Hand Grips keep your hands warm during frigid temperatures
  • In-Dash Headlight provides optimum visibility in snowy conditions
  • All-wheel drive lets you stay in control in all types of conditions
  • 6 forward / 2 reverse speeds provide versatility when removing snow in various spaces

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Troy-Bilt Snowblower is a workhorse! This is our 3rd winter with this machine and it is living up to the challenge. It recently created about 1/2 mile of walking paths here in 12" of snow. No problems and it didn't use up 1 tank of fuel. The only issue is similiar to the other review that the throw chute doesn't move correctly using the stick on the controls, it fetches up, could be a design issue. Other than that, its great. Order extra shear pins just in case you hit something.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I have never owned a snow blower until last year.I was walking through Lowe's in early April. I was looking for a sale on snow shovels and some items for my shop, I happened to walk by the snow blowers and noticed the name "Troy Built".I stopped to look, dreaming of not having to shovel again when a salesman saw me and asked if I needed help. I knew from listening to my friend who has a Troy Built tiller. I also had used my wife's grandfather's Troy Built"horse"tiller and remembered how easily it started and operated. While looking at the 2490 vortex,I saw the price and thought, I can't afford that. The salesman said that one is on sale. Just then, my wife walked up and said, get the one you want. WHAT!!.I had done some reading on the 2490 vortex and good reports when using it for clearing the end of the driveway when plowed full of ice packed snow. I'll take this one, I said to the salesman. He said, that one is on sale,$450.00 dollars of the sticker price. They even put it in my van. That weekend we got 10"of sloppy snow. Needless to say, it went through it like a breeze and all I can say is AWESOME! The easiest machine I've ever started and used. Thank you Troy Built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Machine I have had my snowblower for about 3 years now. Each winter it starts right up with no problems. I have a 6000 sq ft driveway to clear, and with this machine, I am done in no time. My neighbor saw that I had one and came over and looked at it and went out and bought himself the same model. He is fussy about his products, did some review checking, and found this one was at the top of the list. I have always trusted Troy-Bilt, have 3 other pieces of their equipment, and all are top notch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from numerous features, great variety of forward speeds We purchased this snowblower three years ago and for the most part have been pleased with the product. Cuts well through snow, even heavy wet snow and snow from the town plows that come through. The variety of forward speeds allows you to change speeds easily the turning option is also great for moving the snow blower. On the negative side, the low speed for reverse barely moves the snow blower and we do not use it, in addition the skid shoes on one side of the snowblower wore out on the one side the first year, and we only used the machine possible 6 or 7 times, felt is was a bad part, reported it and was not pleased with the response received. Have switched the skid shoes for the past two winters and working fine. The joystick can be difficult at times, requiring you to stop the machine when turning the chute, raising and lowering the chute is just fine. Overall would recommend this product, good value for the dollar

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like a charm This was easy to assemble, only minor wirk needed. It was able to handle anything we got this past winter. The only feature i do not like us how the chute rotates, the vertical adjustment is nice but the side to side not so much. I find myself having to stop progress to use two hands to naje the adjustment. The crank hanlde on my old ynit worked a lot better. Besides that the unit is fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best ever I have used this machine for a few years now, and it has been most reliable. It is very easy to start and maneuver and it will even throw wet, heavy snow like no one's business. When other blowers chutes clog, this Troy-Bilt blower keeps on getting the job done. The heated grips help keep your hands warm so there is little discomfort , even if you have poor circulation, as I do. The price is very reasonable and own a quality Troy-Bilt product. What more is there to say? I highly recommend this Troy-Bilt blower!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Vortex 2490 I bought the Vortex 2490 this fall. Great power and throws the snow great. My only problem with it is the all in one joystick control. It is very hard to get the shoot to turn with the joystick lever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Many good features This is my 3rd year with this blower. It has started so easily by hand that I have not bothered with the electric start. I have had problems with fairly heavy snow being pushed in front rather than taking it in and blowing it. The light bulb rattled loose and I can't get at it and broke a plastic piece that is meant to hold the bulb. It is hard to clear out packed snow after blowing so it won't freeze solid and prevent its use next time - I store it in the unheated garage. The hand warmers are wonderful!!!
