Great features
Assembly was very easy. Blower is stored outside in temps below zero, no problems starting. Handled a foot of wet snow. Very pleased with blower.

This snowblower is easy to start and very dependable! No worries if this is your snowblower! Bought it new and did the required minimum assembly easily in a few minutes. The Briggs Stratton engine is solid and powerful...throws the snow anywhere you need to. I highly recommend this product!

Lite weight and easy to maneuver!
I bought this product last fall intending to use it for light snow falls... The 2018 - 19 winter was one of the worse in history... The snow blower worked out great... My machine definitely got the workout... It even moved the big windrows the snow plows left in the driveway... Secret is let the machine do the work... Lite weight and easy to maneuver!

I bought this after owning a Toro for 17 years. The engines were the same and this was half price of the Toro. I figured if the engine lasted 17 years what was the difference if the housing was different. Starts on 2nd pull every time. Goes through the heaviest of stuff. It's auger is stiffer than the toro and I would say that I prefer the toro better, but it has been great this winter.

I bought this on sale. I was interested to see how a four stroke would throw snow. OH YES! Easy start, and can it throw snow! I had to be awake and make sure I wasn't throwing snow against windows, cars, etc. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for an economical, reliable, great snowblower. I thought I would regret not going with electric start, however, I have no issues giving her a tug, as it is quite comfortable.

Bought this snowblower in November 2018 because old Toro was kaput. I am unable to use anything larger. We had two snows after purchase that were snow with icy rain. This machine cut right thru the caked on ice and snow with no problem. For it's size this machine is a monster. Highly recommend if this is the size snowblower that meets your needs. Engine worked great.

Awesome with wet snow
I bought this because my big two stage did not throw wet snow.
This thing throws wet snow, and slushy water.
