P.O.S.By Lee(Owner), Jan. 21, 2014From the first time I used this snowblower I noticed that it while it does direct most of the snow thru the snorkel, it also sprays a significant amount of snow straight out from the impeller, which means you have to do your driveway at least twice.
I've had the 522E for about 3 years and I'm DONE with this machine. I will cut my losses and sell it this summer at our garage sale. Then I will go buy the Toro my neighbors use to clear their driveways in half the time. The attached pic shows the crappy job it did after the third pass!
Excellent for smaller spacesBy Tom Wilson(Owner), Oct. 29, 2014My wife was after me to get her her own snow blower for the walk and wooden deck. I purchased this, but now I'm the one using it. I love it because it has a battery start, it light weight and maneuverable and can handle more snow than I thought it would. I use it on the front walkway from the driveway to the house and the rear patio.
I purchased it in 2010 (its now fall 2014). The only problems I've had are the angle of the chute won't stay where I set it (it needs a different lock washer I think) and this summer I noticed a bunch of oil leaking out of it (don't know why (yet).
