Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work horse This snow blower it's a beast. Used it 6 times this past winter from a few inches to a foot and where the plow truck pushed it snow about 15". I did my very best to kill this machine and it just chewed through it like nothing even wet snow, the 4 way shoot and the joy stick was great never once froze up and it sat out side all winter. Hand warmers nice touch. Started first to sec pull even when it was 30 degrees below. A very nicely built machine

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worked Twice Purchased this machine from Northern Tool. I set it up per the instructions, started it up, and all seemed well. Had two early snowfalls and the machine worked well. The next time I needed the machine, it would not start. I have now used a shovel to dig my way out of a Minnesota record snow for the month of February. On the flip side, I have this pretty machine with all these gadgets sitting in my garage. I just wish it worked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Been serviced more times than it's worked Extreme disappointment is how I would describe this machine. I have owned it since October, it has successfully plowed my driveway 0 times, it has been in the shop 2 times. The first time the power drive broke after going up my driveway once. I just got the machine back yesterday after being in the shop for nearly two weeks. Warranty covered the cost of repair but I paid to have the thing picked up and delivered back. This morning the idling engine makes a horrendous noise. MTD (parent company) is paying for the second pickup as a "courtesy". Not worth the price. Not worth the headache. Return policy is 14 days and only if you haven't put gas or oil in it. More snow coming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This baby can throw snow! I have had this model for a couple of years now and it is a workhorse! I never had any issues with it and it throws even the heaviest of snow. I am very pleased with this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! This has to be 1 of the best choices in snow blowers that I have purchased. It is designed to handle any type of winter weather condition that "Mother Nature" drops on us. It's design is so easy to use no matter how long you are outside cleaning up the sidewalks, driveways, etc. Other similar models make you feel when you are finished that you just got beat up by somebody. Your body is so sore. But with this Troy-Bilt thrower the ease and comfort of snow blowing couldn't be any easier. Just an overall great machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest Praise Runs and works as advertised. Great product. With 8 inches of heavy wet snow last winter had no problem, has cut my blowing time by 15 minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Snowthrower I have owned this snow thrower for three years, and have never had an issue with it. I have a tenth of a mile driveway that is all stone. I put the skids all the way down so the blade is about an inch and a half off the ground. I get the occasional stone going through, but for the most part it works great.
