Here are the grades I give it ---- Cost: B Ease of Use: A Controls: A Storage: A Doing What it Says It Will Do: C-
Now - before all of these 5-star-reviewers pile on, let it be known that I think this is a great device in theory. I have the EGO mower and have always owned cord or batter-operated mowers. I love no oil & gas in my garage. The mower is really great [provided the grass is not wet and not long] so I thought I would give the snowblower a try. It is too expensive, period. So I gave it a 'B' for cost. Does it work? Yes. Inasmuch as it does throw snow as it goes along and does not belch blue smoke in your face like many gas-powered ones. But this snowblower not only does not throw snow the 'up to 35ft' as claimed on the box, it barely throws it 5 feet. That might work for some, but it does not cut the mustard with me. In practice, what this means is that you have to make many, many more passes -- you have to hit the same snow ~3x to get it across the driveway and into your yard. Maybe I have the one lemon in the bunch or I missed something in the manual, but it does not throw snow far at all - which really defeats a big part of a snowblower.
I am handy and no novice. Love to know if I am doing something wrong, but really - the setup is a no-brainer. Would I buy it again? Might not, might give another brand a try. But with interchangeable batteries for my mower, I sure which this threw the snow further.
