If you take your time and there's no ice in the snow to try and break up, this machine works pretty well.
Rated 3 out of 5 by shimmer Easy to handle for a senior woman
As a senior woman with back issues I found this product very easy to use, it is light weight and therefore no problem for for the senior to use.
We had our first heavy snow fall on Dec.11/12 2016 and I found this product very easy to handle. It is great for removing fresh fallen snow but not so great for handling the snow that the plows love to block your driveway with, this required some shoveling on my part. As far as the ability to throw the snow it has a great throwing distance. Love that you can manually adjust the shoot with a flick of the wrist.
My only complaint is that the wheels are small and therefore seem to bog down when trying to clear your pathway (not certain larger wheels would work).
It would be nice if replacement parts could be bought in Southern Ontario instead of having to buy them from the US.
