    For snow up to 14 inches found no problem with it. It didnt have drift cutters but instead of paying up to 30 bucks I made them with a couple of steel strapbars for 12 bucks and work very good. First use of machine was Feb 2011 durring the blizzard. Had 4 to 5 foot drifts but undercut drifts with side of machine and knocked down overhand and made pass again and it cleared it. For anything over 14 inches it will make you work a little bit. Chose this machine because our average snow fall is 6 to 10 inches a storm or less. Kind of pricey but chose it for the big Briggs and Stratten engine it came with. Satisified with it so far but only used it twice once for the feb Blizzard and one snow fall after that then put away as recieved no more significant storms after that

  • Good quality, but not strong enough

    I bought this one and it was very easy to use and cleared the powder out quickly, but I spent more time cleaning out the chute than moving when I hit the wet berm. Will return and get one of the lager models. The workmanship is great, but it's just too weak for wet snow.

    I am getting older and thought I should pay the extra money for a John Deer because I am disabled and don't want to have to mess around with the imported snowblowers. This blower h as not been right from the day I took it home. I immediately returned it because the starter rope recoil wouldn't work. The Moscow, Idaho JD shop, where I bought the snowblower, charged me $25 instead of honoring the warranty. Then it was very balky starting so back it went for them to try to fix that. I was charged for service again. Was told both times that owner was not in and he had to authorize warranty service. I needed machine so paid. Finally I discovered that the owner was in process of selling the dealership. So never was able to get satisfaction for having to pay repairs on new machine. I bought John Deer because I thought they had reliable machines and service. I finally had the machine repaired someplace else. The Moscow JD dealership also sells the "Stihl" line of tools. I bought the M55 2 stroke tiller. When I took this less than a year old machine in for a spring tuneup this dealer charged me $148. No parts. Just a tuneup on a machine that cost less than $400 new. I haven't set foot in this business since. I'd rather buy what WalMart sells and throw it away once in awhile. It's far less expensive in the long run.
