Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Suitable for medium duty jobs
Due to the medium-sized 26” auger and a massive 357 cc Troy-Bilt engine, this snow blower can keep your 4 - 8 car driveway clean from snow all winter. It is also perfect for standard 48” wide sidewalk cleaning, as it will require no more than 2 passes to get such a sidewalk clean of snow.
Pro Perfect for compacted and icy snow
The three-stage design of this snow blower makes it an efficient tool for dealing with deep, compacted, icy snow. The accelerator easily chops such snow, passing it to the auger afterwards.
Pro Keeps your hands warm
This snow blower has heated hand grips that will keep your hands warm and comfy, and even reduce the potential threat of frostbites.
Pro Almost no assembling is required
This snow blower is ready to work almost straight out of the box. You only need to spend around 5-10 minutes attaching the chute (no tools needed) and it’s ready to go.
Con Unsuitable for light and superficial snow
This snow blower is suitable only for snow deeper than 4 inches. Because of its high spinning speed, the accelerator splashes the superficial snow instead of pulling it into the auger.
Con Some snow is pushed to the left
When cleaning snow deeper than 6”, this snow blower will push some snow to the left of the auger housing, which causes it to leave a tiny snow trail. This issue is caused by the design of the accelerator (thick edges of the accelerator's blades tend to push a tiny bit of snow in the direction of accelerator's rotation). It will sometimes require you to do overlaps between each pass to get rid of that trail of snow.
