Rated 5 out of 5 by from In a word ... AWESOME !!! Love it ... absolutely love it. Did a lot of research before buying, and the Consumer Reports review convinced me. Tons of favorite features, topped by Electric Start, Heated Grips, Joystick Chute Control, and One-Hand Turning. I've only used it a couple of time, but thus far, I'm really impressed with how well it's made, and how easy it is to operate. It's a snow-swallowing monster, and exactly what I needed for my Oregon Ranch. Highly recommended, from every standpoint. Haven't seen anything yet that I could even remotely identify as a "minus".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't wait to use it AGAIN! Bought this new in November 2018. It is such a smooth running machine, I highly recommend it! All my neighbors love it too, lol, especially because I enjoy using it so much that I end up doing the whole street... A lot of people dread snow, but not this guy! Bring it on mother nature, I'm ready to snowblow!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heated Handles A Blessing I clear snow professionally for 6 families in my neighborhood. This includes their walkways and driveways. Since my neighborhood has driveways that average 100 feet long I could be outside for several hours depending on the height of the snow fall. During this time the hands can become very cold due to lack of movement while operating a snow thrower. This model has heated handles that keep your fingers warm inside your gloves. This on top of it's snow clearing amount make it a pleasure to own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great piece of equipment bought this snow thrower about 4 years ago and love all the features it came with. I can't say enough about it. easy starting by the recoil start, love the heated hand grips, individual brakes to help turn it and the remote joy stick for the chute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough as nails I bought the blower second hand and it's an older model than the current one so I still have crank handle shoot control which is my only complaint but that's no longer a issue with the newer models. The only thing I've had to replace on mine is the shoot itself which got busted up by rocks and the angle adjustment cables because they had gotten kinked. I've used this blower for 3 years and inup to 4 feet of snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Very happy with the steel construction, a solid machine. A few small disappointments. 1- the up and down snow chute cap is binding on the plastic spacer between the chute and cap. I will need to fix this because the small motor drive is struggling to move it up and down. 2- the gear selection lever and the slots that it locks into are a little hard to work and feel somewhat flimsy. 3- I liked the red side stripes on the drum and was disappointed they are not available. 4- and last I think it should come with the drift cutters for that much money. Knowing these four things I would buy it again in a minute, I am just super picky. I also mounted a led light on the front of the drum. In some positions the light shines on the chute. Good luck.
