Move more snow with less effort and in record time - thanks to the Vortex 2890 three-stage snow thrower.  The new 12" inch accelerator that makes the three stage process possible spins at 10 times the speed of the Xtreme™ augers, breaking down the heaviest, wettest snow before throwing it out of the high-impact polymer chute.  The Vortex 2890 three-stage snow thrower is equipped with a reliable 357cc* Troy-Bilt engine and large X-Trac™ tires that provide extra traction when breaking through the barriers of snow left at the bottom of your driveway.  Additional features include Touch 'n Turn® power steering, heated hand grips and Just One Hand® Operation.

Where to Buy

SIGNATURE FEATURES
  • Three-Stage Design

    The 12" accelerator spins 10 times faster than the augers, first breaking down heavy, wet snow like it was fresh powder. Then, with the help of the augers, it continuously shoots snow back into the third stage impeller for discharging.

  • Touch ’n Turn® Power Steering

    The Touch ’n Turn® power steering system is controlled by two easy triggers. Simply squeeze the trigger on the side you want to turn toward, and the unit’s self-propelled drive system will turn the snow thrower for you.

  • Just One Hand® Operation

    Just One Hand® operation lets you guide your Troy-Bilt® snow thrower with literally one hand. Because the machine is engineered to be well-balanced and easy to control, it does the work – not you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A FABULOUS machine !! Purchased 3 years ago. The BEST snow thrower (BY FAR) that I have ever owned !! What a blessing to finally have a snow blower that easily tackles that difficult pile of snow pushed into the driveway from the snow plows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing can stop it I bought this because I read it goes through plowed snow. Weir it does. When the township plowed my street and the plowed snow blocks my driveway this snowblower gets the job done easily and quickly

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beast I have had top top brands in the past, but when my old Ariens died and a major storm was predicted with 18 inches of wet snow I decided to try a 3 stage. I was not disappointed this machine did it all, even the plow drift it also took my buried newspaper and shredded it without any problem . I must say it was far better than the Ariens never clogged . I even helped my neighbor out that was having trouble with his Honda thrower .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Snow "FAR" Thrower This is one of the top tools in my garage hands down, we don't get the huge snow like the north west but when it snows it a we get a lot and I never have a issue with starting and removing the heavy wet snow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from vortex 2890 I bought this machine at the end of last season, the salesman told me that it would throw snow 40 ft. . The best so far on a perfect day is 20 ft. last week we got a 8in. heavy snow and all I could go was 2ft. before it plugged up. Yesterday we got 6in. of light snow and all it would throw it was 6ft.. This unit starts very easy and runs great but it lacks power in the augers to do the job. For the money that I paid for it I'm very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This snow blower is amazing ! Best gift ever ! Easy to start using electric start option. Maneuvers easy on the turns. Headlight great for those returning from work in the dark and needing to snow blow the driveway. Heated hand warmers so you won’t get cold on those frigid nights.
