Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Operation--Great Traction My biggest concern in buying a snowblower was the 4% grade of my brick paver driveway coupled with 17 years of sealer that are on it. It is so slippery that after a snowfall, you can stand on the top and without moving your feet, slide all the way down to the bottom. I have a concrete co. (43 years) and up until this year, have had my Bobcat parked in the garage for snow removal. After getting rid of my Bobcat, and reading the reviews on this snowblower, I decided to give it a try. This snowblower is amazing! Not only will it practically drag me up the slippery driveway, but it will throw the snow almost all the way across it, at 42'. The ease of operation is also extremely beneficial as I am 70 years old. I have only owned it for 3 months now, but I figured I gave it a pretty good workout, as we have had the snowiest Feb. in Mn. history this year. Thank You for a great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reserving Judgement Just had it delivered. Tried working my way through the User Manual. WHAT A JOKE! #1, there should be an easy-to-follow online video available to show how to assemble the snow thrower. #2, there should be a specific video and User Manual for each variation of the snow thrower. In other words, the User Manual should be specific to the EXACT model that was delivered. Why should your customers have to figure out which of five different chute designs that came with their unit? #3, the unit was shipped with just enough oil to hit the LOW mark on the oil stick. Now I have to go out in a snowstorm to buy oil before I can safely use the unit. I can see where you might not want to fill the oil to brim for shipping and handling purposes, but would it have killed you to ship a small container of oil with each unit? Not off to a very good start. Hopefully I can get it assembled correctly and filled with the correct oil. I've made a big investment in this snow thrower and we're off to a disappointing start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Beast! I bought this snowblower to replace my old one that finally cost more to repair than it was worth. I did my research and this brand is highly rated and this model gets high marks too. My driveway is on an incline and is 3 cars wide at the top and narrows to 2 car width at the street, about 50 feet long. This wide 28 inch unit makes quick work of the drive. The track drive is great on the incline and the power steering makes turning around a breeze. This unit is heavy and seems well constructed but easy to maneuver. Easy to pull start. Engine seems powerful. Bought from my local dealer which definitely increased my confidence to buy it and so glad that I did!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not pleased. Troybilt wouldn’t help. Auger belt squeals LOUD. 3 repair trips, lots of replaced parts. Problem still exists and repair shop says nothing else they can change. Troybilt won’t stand behind. Trading at loss. I’m done with it AND Troybilt. And we have two older Troybilt blowers that we are very pleased with... the new ones aren’t the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One season too late Last year winter 2016-17 we were hammered with snow here in Oregon, they shut down the gorge for a couple of weeks. I was using a single stage 2-stroke pusher, I worked the heck out of it in 18-20 inches of snow, I clear for 12 houses. This year I wanted to be better prepared. I read reviews both good and bad about this blower for 2 months, pulled the trigger and bought it before the snow came. It arrived well crated and in excellent condition. I followed the directions and had it ready for the snow in about an hour. This snow blower didn't disappoint. I plugged it in for the first start and it was running as soon as my thumb hit the button, very impressed. My driveway is 17 degrees which is why I ordered the tracked version. It was pulling me up the driveway, I set it up a notch and cleared a path around my house again going up 17+ degrees of lawn throwing the snow and not the grass... very pleased. The only complaint I have if you can call it that is on dry concrete it doesn't turn well due to so much traction. But I've found if you tilt it back on the tracks it turns just fine. If you're on snow it turns just fine. This year we only had 8 to 10 inches at a time and it cleared as though there was no snow at all. I think I'm the only one on the street hoping for more snow this year. I would recommend this product to any homeowner.
