Rated 1 out of 5 by IlvBuffaloes Waste of Money
I used this product after a recent snow fall. This product is only for a few inches of snow, in which case, save your money and use your shovel. Anything more than a few inches of snow it shuts down. It is difficult to handle and the snow shoots straight up in the air. Any little breeze and the snow is all over the user. This purchase was a complete waste of my money.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Raindrops Best purchase ever
I used this for the first time and I am so happy with it. I am a senior citizen and I used it to clear side walk during major snow storm, it worked great and no pain in my back!
Rated 4 out of 5 by awall6344 12 inches of snow
Purchased this at end of last season, and used it for the first time today.
Not a big deal to put together. No problems with the handle, as others have reported.
Difficult for left hand use, as designed for right handed use with button and trigger.
Did a pretty good job clearing the 12 inches of snow in long, 2-car driveway. Took about 40 minutes for a job that would normally take about 90. Needed to make 2 passes in the drifts.
Not self-propelled, so you still need to push. Not as bad as pushing a shovel full of snow.
Glad I Purchased!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Teachakid Did the Job!
The Earthwise Corded Electric Snow Thrower did the job. It quickly cleared the back patio which had about 4 inches of snow on it. It was as easy as pushing a vacuum cleaner. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it didn't clean down to a dry pavement. A little film of snow was left on the ground. It also does not have an adjustable chute. I read some of the comments concerning difficulty assembling the snow thrower. The trick seems to be that it is helpful if two people put it together. It is easier to put it together when one person holds the handle upright while the other person puts in the four screws. It is difficult to hold the handle in place with pressure while trying to get the screws to line up. Once we figured this out, it was simple.
Rated 3 out of 5 by mbylone not super fantastic but OK
I bought this to clear my back deck and my short sidewalk. Assembly was a little challenging but it did go together and the directions are good. I hooked it up and it does move the snow. We had 5 inches this morning. Blows it out in front and a little up in the air so if it is windy, it will blow a lot onto you as you work. 10inches is not a very wide sweep, but the good news is that you do not need to lift the shovel at the end of the pass and that is exactly why i bought it. The impeller is plastic and I hit a 2x4 support on my deck, causing a big chunk to break out of the blades. However, it still worked and I will just have to get a replacement blade as this was a user error on my part. Overall, not bad and better than a shovel. Glad I have my big gas powered blower for my 200 foot driveway!
Rated 1 out of 5 by teal Does not work and no customer service
Just received it. Difficult to put together. That would be okay but it didn't work (dead). Tried the outlet and extension code with another appliance and that appliance worked. Called customer service, put on hold then left message, never head back. Should have checked the reviews. GOING BACK! Would have put no stars if I could.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AuntieB It Works!
This morning I finally had a chance to use my snow thrower. We had a couple inches of snow over the night. What can I say, but it works as stated. Cleared the sidewalk/walkway beautifully. I'm sure the more i use it I will adjust to how it works. I did well, however I just need to learn my route of using it. The only con was as others mentioned, the handle connection. Took a few tries but I finally got it together. Overall, I would recommend this snow thrower to anyone wishing to not push a shovel. It's lightweight and easy to handle.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hmmm what happened parts Never
I'm a 5' female and trying to make my life easy by just plugging it in and supposedly lightweight...if I'd kept the box I would've sent it back but after you put it together and wait for the first snow you toss the box since you have no where to store it and you believe it's going to work but the shovel worked better on the first big fluffy snow we got. I was shoving the snow not blowing. My back was killing me and still is from shoving on it through the snow...I finally got the shovel out and got it done. Waste of my money and I'm still paying on it. I should've read all the reviews.
