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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Real Life Saver! I own a cabin In the mountains at around 3800 foot elevation. Last winter, which was one of the heaviest snowfalls in the region in 50 years, I had to shovel snow by hand off of the cabin roof and driveway area. This took place before I took delivery of my Storm Tracker 2890 Snow Thrower, and ultimately landed me in the hospital with a diagnosis of cold weather fatigue/exhaustion. My 2890 literally was a life saver. Later that winter (2017), I blew through snow berms higher than the hood of the machine, as we had nearly 4 feet of accumulation. This winter, I have blown out the area twice with a snow depth of around 30 inches each time. I spent quite a few evenings researching many different brands and models, and I am convinced that I made the right choice. Because this machine is outfitted with tracks instead of wheels, it is way better suited for extreme snow removal tasks such as I have to deal with. I usually have to start it in sub freezing temperatures, so as long as the power is on, I just plug in the electric start. To those who have had operational issues or complaints, here are some tips from my own experiences: In deep snow (28"+), make a complete swath on the opposite side to which you are throwing the snow. Then, just take half width bites if necessary. Never try to turn the machine into the snow side, but away from it because the side hood will not push the wall of snow out of the way and your outside track will just spin. Same for backing up. You can't turn the hood into the snow, or the track will spin out. There is nothing wrong with the steering, one just has to learn how to properly operate the machine. Believe me, when working with deep snow, I have learned how to make the machine work for me, and not have to manhandle it around. This is one amazing piece of machinery. You will not be disappointed in purchasing one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tracks are the way to go Bought this unit to replace a 15 year old Yard King 10/29. I have used it through 5 storms so far and it has exceeded my expectations in every way. The tracks allow variable down force so I can set it to skim over the top of my gravel driveway leaving stones undisturbed, or move a lever to apply down force and scrape it down to bare pavement. Heated hand grips are great and the power steering means just about anyone can use this machine with ease. Having had several wheeled snow blowers, I can honestly say that I will never buy one of those again! The tracks are awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2890 Review I purchased the blower in November and used it in 2 storms. The first storm dropped ~8" and the blower did a great job. The tracks allowed me to walk up a fairly steep driveway without issue and the blower cleared a path with ease. The second storm dropped ~12" and in the process of clearing a driveway, the main gearbox (for the stage 1 auger) failed. Shear pins did not break nor did I hit anything but snow. The unit was repaired under warranty. The repair shop had to negotiate on my behalf to get a new gearbox...as the unit was brand new and not even scratched yet. The apparent cause of the failure was a lack of (factory) lubricant within the sealed gearbox. The factory finally agreed and replaced the gearbox with a new one. My issue is it took 4 weeks to get the part to the repair house. I've since used the repaired snow thrower and it works as expected. This failure happened in the dead of winter. I was lucky that we did not have any significant snows while my unit was in for repair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine Works great. The only thing keeping me from giving it four stars is the fact that the power steering doesn't work very well. Seems to work okay only occasionally. This is the second one they sent me and I am still disappointed with the steering performance. I still have to wrestle it to turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from five star I was very lucky I decided to get this unit. I clear the snow around my yard then head down the street and clear the drive way next door. It has started on the 3rd pull every time even at zero degrees .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good investment I purchased this specific model because of its good reviews. I have used it twice in the last week and so far it has lived up to the reviews. My driveway is gravel, 1,000 feet long, with a moderate incline (40 feet elevation change top to bottom). I also have a concrete pad at the top and a large gravel area in front of my barn. The first snow was only about 4 inches but I decided to see if it would clear the concrete pad. I had no issues and the blower did a decent job with the small amount of snow available. The second snow was heavier, but due to the high winds there was no consistent amount to measure. Some parts of my drive were bare and some drifted to 18 inches. I made four passes in the dark on the driveway, which cleared the entire width. I had it set on the gravel setting and had no issues with throwing gravel into the grass. One item to note - the light was insufficient - had it not been a full moon I would have had difficulty seeing. The following morning I did the concrete pad, the driveway again, the area around the barn, and a small portion of the grass (for the dogs). I had no issues with the performance of the blower on any of the surfaces or inclines. I marked durability as average because the machine is too new to decide. I marked down ease of use because it would take three hands to keep the machine blowing snow while changing directions and still throwing the snow where you want it (I have no recommendation on how to improve that - just offering my observation). I marked down ease of starting because after refueling it didn't start on the first pull like it did when it was cold (unheated storage location). To put this all in perspective, under identical conditions last year it took my son and I nine hours with shovels to do what I did in about two hours by myself with the blower. I spent a couple weeks reading reviews on all the different makes and styles of blowers before I purchased this specific blower and after the purchase I was still wondering if my money was well spent. Now that I have had reason to use it I'm confident my money was spent wisely.
