Rated 5 out of 5 by from Storm 2890 - Me Like I have had this machine for the most of 2 winters now, O yah and I live in Maine - I didn't want to write a review until I had some snow-time in, sometimes I read a review and the person has not even used it yet, but they like the look of it... I'm very happy with this snowblower, Starts easy never even have to use the electric starter ! Runs great, smooth and quiet ! Throws snow far, in the right conditions "cold dry snow" 40 feet or so ! warm wet snow around 20 feet which is good I've had snowblowers throw warm wet snow only 5 feet. The no flat tires are great but they would be even better if the were a little bit softer. The light works good but the shoot blocks some of the light which doesn't matter in daylight and at night I use a clip on hat light "works great". The model I have does not come with heated hand grips but you can order these extra if you wanted them, they are nice to have when temp gets down around zero F Overall this is a nice machine and I have pushed it to its limits with Deep snow, Wet snow, and "previously wet refrozen crusty hard snow" still works great !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to maneuver! Right from the crate this snowblower is easy to use. It took about twenty minutes to attach the handle and chute parts. The instructions in the manual are very easy to read, understand and follow. The only tools needed for attachment of these parts is a socket set and needle nose pliers. I really like the "dashboard" with clear instructions of what all of the handles and levers are for. This is great to have in front of you at all times, to prevent confusion. This machine is so much quieter than snowblowers we have had in the past. I was very pleased that I was not waking up the kids before our driveway was finished. As for actual snowblowing- quick, easy and a very clean path was made. With a 28" inch spread, the amount of snow cleared is amazing. We had roughly 8-11inches in our most recent snowfall and it was very wet and heavy, but was cleared with no issues. Turning the chute is very simple, as is controlling all of the settings. I highly recommend reading the manual in regards to settings prior to use, as they are very well explained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So awesome! This Troybilt snow blower arrived on a pallet in the middle of my driveway, so I had no choice but to assemble it right away. I was amazed at how quick and easy the assembly was. It is very big and very powerful! I am literally the envy of everyone that has seen it! I have only gotten to test it out on some light snow so far, but I am actually looking forward to a good heavy snowfall now so I can really test this puppy out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Troybilt Snow Blower The Troybilt Storm 2890 Snow Blower is a very nice piece of machinery that is well built with quality parts. Its very easy to assemble. Its very easy to start and even if you did have trouble starting it you can use its electric starter that it has. Its very quiet compared to many others ive used in the past. It has very minimal vibration which i like because many snow blowers that ive used start to hurt your hands after a while of using, i did not have that problem with this one. It throws snow pretty far and its airless tires are a nice feature as i think it seems to give it better traction. Im very happy with the way this machine works, it really gets the job done. I would certainly considering purchasing from this company and would recommend this product for anyone who lives where it snows whether light snows or blizzards this machine can handle it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done ! I received the Troybilt - Storm 2890 Snow Blower a few weeks ago . With a little help from my husband , we unboxed the snow blower . Using the guide supplied in the package ,we lifted the handle , attached the bolts , then we attached the chute . It took us 20 mins to assemble and had zero issues. After adding gas and setting the choke I used the pull start and it fired right up. Very easy to start . Finally winter is here in Northeastern Ohio ! We got our first snow last night and I was able to put the snow blower to work . This time I used the electric start and it fired right up again . We have a long , wide sidewalk and I was able to make two passes and it was cleared . I like that it is super easy to change the direction of the chute . Our driveway and parking area took me a little longer but it worked just as well . This was my first experience using a snow blower and I am so impressed with easy this was for e to use . This is a great snow blower that gets the job done and saves me time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Call it The Beast We've lived in the same place for over 30 years and have had a couple other snow blowers, this one is by far the best! Our first snow was only about an inch, but we tried the blower on it anyway, cut through it like butter. The next snow was about 4 inches with ice underneath, also went through that with no problems, including the end of the drive where the city plow leaves all the chunks! It also clears a pretty wide path, so we get done much quicker than we did with previous blowers. This has two ways to start it, either pliug it in and push a button or pull start. I was not strong enough to pull start it, but I can plug in and push the button with no problem. The 2890 blower also has radial turning levers, which make it real easy to turn the blower. The chute crank is easy to turn and in a very convenient place. The only thing I don't like about this blower is all the buttons to make it start are down below and behind the handle, would be absolutely perfect if all that was up on the handle where you stand, definitely not a deal breaker though. If you need a beast of a snow blower, I highly recommend this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing snow blower! This snowblower is so awesome. It starts up on one quick pull, is easy to maneuver and clears the snow so fast. Living in Illinois this has become a total necessity and this Troybilt snowblower is so reliable! Heated hand grips are an amazing added bonus.
