    Rated 5 out of 5 by from No deficiencies , excellent performance Quick delivery time, and straight out of the box, went over the thing top to bottom. Everything that is supposed to be tight, was. Everything was in the correct adjustment , engine oil level was bang on. The performance to date has been above my expectations. My neighbour was trying to shovel the bulk from the street Plow from his driveway, he’s 80, I went over and that blower went through that patched hard and heavy stuff like a knife through butter. If you need one , this is a good on

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far First time purchasing a snowblower - in my seventies. Used it three times - started first time each time with either pull or electric start. Last time I used it kept stalling when auger engaged. Checked augers and jamed with ice - removed ice and that was the problem. Also keeping machine outside so I got a cover from Home Depot that keeps it clean/protected. Not giving a five star until I have used it some more and haven’t had a major storm yet.

    Does this machine have a light?

    Asked by: Hstj
    Thank you for your inquiry. This powerful two stage snow thrower offers great performance at an affordable price. It is not equipped with a headlight. For upgraded performance and the benefit of a headlight consider the Cub Cadet model 31DH55SB596 Home Depot item 1000841961.

    What is the best type of oil to use for a snow blower and is it regular gas that is used

    Asked by: Rocket17
    The Manufacturer recommends the use of Home Depot item 1000845743 ATLAS Premiume Snow Thrower engine oil. Use fresh gasoline 87 Octane or higher, when possible choose a grade with no ehtanol content for reliable starts and best operation. Consider adding a fuel stabilizer if the equipment will be inactive for long periods such as off-season storage.
