The first swath I made was difficult (almost 38'). I pushed
the blower about 6 inches, pulled it back, pushed another 6", pulled it
back, pushed another 6", etc. etc. etc. to the end. Next, I pulled the
blower to the beginning, and was able to nip 5" off the right side of the
swath without stopping. I pulled it back and took off another 5". I continued
this process until the swath was wide enough for me to turn around and go in
the opposite direction nipping off another 5" back to the beginning. While
I had to walk farther (good exercise) using this process, I could blow the snow without stopping.
After a short rest, I did the same procedure going up the driveway. Since the blower is NOT self-propelled, I had to drag the blower back up each time. In this way, I used gravity while nipping off 5 inches on each course.
I LOVE my EGO Snow Blower. It performs admirably. Kudos! ! ! The only thing better would be a Self-Propelled Snow Blower. Fingers crossed.
