Excellent Snow 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!

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.

Auger belt keeps falling off
Auger belt fell off after 2nd use. Took it to a local dealer, and after I got it back it fell off again. Called customer service twice and they said they didn't know about the issue. By the reviews on this page you do! Briggs and Stratton please get this issue fixed!

Don’t bother
It had good reviews on the Home Depot website but don’t bother. The auger stops working with anything over an inch of snow. Even after being fixed, it continues to happen. Hasn’t even made it a whole winter. Don’t waste your money.

Well they won’t post my original review so I’ll leave it short and sweet. Belt falls off. Had it fixed by an authorized dealer as told to do so. Belt fell off the moment we tried to use. Do NOT purchase.
