Snow Joe Electric Snow Thrower w/13.5 Amp Motor & Halogen Light
just recvd 12/19/13, and as I live in Wisconsin have used 4 times already , and am I in love with my Snow Joe! Had a big old Ariens gas powered one that was always stalling and weighed a ton.This guy moves the snow and glop with ease.
We've used this heavier wet snow and the light fluffy stuff and it works great! We live in the open country with drifting to contend with. My brother who lives behinds us and does his snow removal with a small utility John Deere tractor with a newly purchase $3,000 snow blower attachment was impressed when he saw how well it worked!
husband loved it!
My husband laughed until he used the snow Joe. He told my son how great it was !
Works good in light fluffy snow, poorly in wet snow. Not enough power. Very disappointed in product.
I finally got to use my new snow thrower. I must admit it works great. Did my driveway, patio and sidewalks. For me it was great......sure beats shoveling. If you have a big area to do probably better stick was the big gas ones. Especially if you get more than 6 inches of snow. But this did the job for me!!!!!! Thank you QVC.
Light and fluffy snow-yes. Denser snow - NO
We just had two snowfalls in a little over two days' time with consistently cold temperatures (no freezing and thawing). First snowfall was around six inches of light and fluffy stuff and the Snow Joe worked pretty well. The second snowfall was about 4" of moderately heavy snow and the machine would not work at all. This is important so I'll repeat: it didn't work at all. Also - this machine is electric and has a warning on it not to use it around water. We won't be able to use it on a melting snowfall. On the fence as to whether or not we should return it. I like that it is electric and lightweight so maybe will keep...
I just bought this snow thrower right in the nick of time before our first significant snow fall here in northern Nevada... we got about 10 inches and it did a GREAT job and so effortless. I watched the guy across the street with the "monster" snow blower and my Snow Joe did just as well in about the same about of time. Just sent one as a Christmas gift to my cousin in New England. Great buy! Glad I took a chance on this great little helper!
Bought this last year. LOVE IT!!!!!!! Easy to use and lightweight. I was able to do our driveway myself while my husband was at work. Do yourself a favor and purchase this :-)
I live in northern mn and have used this 4 times already. Works even in -20 and 10 in of snow. Comes all assembled except for unfolding the handle. Thanks QVC
Good little machine.
I really wanted to keep this light, easy to run machine. But..... it just isn't enough for a Fargo winter. The first couple inches were super easy to run through. But....I do live in Fargo, so we rarely see a couple if inches. Unfortunately, I had to return it and buy a gas powered. I would recommend this to anyone back home, down south, this would be great.
What a great little workhorse!
I purchased this item in October and just used it for the first time today....and WOW! I purchased it to use on my 10x30 deck because I have dogs that still need to go outside during the winter months and after 3 years of shoveling, I had had enough! What used to take me an hour took only 30 minutes. I have never operated a snow thrower myself until today and found it very easy to use. I read many reviews before purchasing in order to calm my skeptic mind and am just so very pleased with the product. It's light enough to carry around wherever you may need it, and although being tethered to an electrical cord isn't ideal, at least you know it's always going to start as long as you have electricity. We'll see what the rest of the winter may bring, but as for today, I'm tickled to have it!
REALLY LIKE IT!
This has really saved my back from aches and pain. The Snow Joe was easy to put together and is very light weight. I live in an area where I get lake effect snow. And we had our first major snow fall about 2 weeks ago. The Joe worked very well on my long driveway. But not where the road plows blocked in the end of my driveway. That was okay since my neighbors, who have powerful gas snow blowers couldn't get through either. It does get clogged in the chute when the snow is wet and heavy but I just put a small spade in my pocket and that way I'm able to worked it out and continue on.
Limiting the use of lifting a heavy shovel is always a plus.
And I also own the smaller Joe that I purchased last year. Happy with that too.
