Designed for those that need a machine that can tackle a vast amount of snowfall, Snow Joe presents the Snow Joe SJM988 Max 13.5 Amp 18 in. Electric Snow Thrower. A four-blade heavy-grade steel rotor digs 10 in. into fallen snow to move 650 lb. per minute. Moving all that snow can be fun, but it also has to be safe.

From the first fall of the season, to the last, Snow Joe's SJM988 is the smartest solution for your winter season.
  • No gas, oil, or tune-ups required making it ready-to-go at a moment's notice
  • Instant start lever will guarantee that your thrower doesn't fall victim to cold climates and starts every time
  • Safety switch will prevent inadvertent starts
  • Four steel blade rotors will clear a path 18 in. wide and 10 in. deep, with a rate of 650 lbs. per minute

Works perfect in our area of Maryland
I used this on our parking pad and our sidewalk as well as driveway and curb clearing. Works perfect on snow up to about 8 inches. Ice bogs it down so don't even try.

Snow blower with a cord?
I had my doubts about an electric snow blower. My wife bought this for me as a gift, so I tried to make the best of it. After running over the cord several times, I found that it makes a better cord winder than snow blower. It has now turned into a snow pusher, as it no longer will "throw" snow. Never again.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
