Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for Alberta snow!! Bought this yesterday after about an 8 inch powdery snowfall and it couldn't do the job. It kept stopping in the deeper snow, so we tried it in the areas we had already shoveled earlier that had about half the height of snow...did the same thing. We would have to pull back out of the snow, restart, and try again, then it would stop....again!! This is too weak for a real snowfall. Also, there is no way this machine throws snow anymore than a few feet. Very disappointed after reading all the glowing reviews, don't be fooled this isn't for an Alberta snow!! Maybe for a small snow on your walkway, but for a double garage pad with snow over a couple of inches...no way. Returning it today :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So bad. This thing is useless unless you are clearing 3” or less on a concrete sidewalk. The “blades” are some type of heavy duty rubber. There was a stick in the snow I couldn’t see that was only maybe 1/2” thick. It got caught in the blower and snapped one of the rubber blades that pull the snow in. Now the thing vibrates badly and doesn’t throw anything. Even when before it was broken if there was more than a few inches of snow it would get bogged down and the snow around me is very fluffy light snow. So if you are doing anything more than a few inches in a sidewalk, don’t even both. Waste of time, money and effort.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Service The cordless Snow Joe snowblower does a fairly good job on the snow. It is best used on dry snow. When the snow gets wet and heavy it becomes difficult. I actually like the machine. It is pretty powerful and very quiet. However, they have the world’s worst customer service. I have been in touch with them every week for more than two months trying to find out why the lights on the machine do not work. Every week I am told I will get an answer within two days. You will like this machine but do not expect any customer support at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool for sidewalks, smaller spaces We are generally quite happy with this snowblower as it saves us a lot of back pain. We live on a busy corner with a very, very long sidewalk. The tool works good for thicker snow. It doesn't throw super far, so if you have a big driveway it might be a bit of a hassle. But for sidewalks and smaller spaces, it's perfect. What use to take us at least an hour in shoveling now only takes us 10 minutes and barely any labour. My only comment is that it doesn't brush the snow down to pavement like those large, really expensive blowers with bristle brushes do. It just removes the snow and then you'd have to sweep or use a shovel to get right down to pavement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from High cost for the average performance When you buy, you think the cost is great but it comes without the battery and the charger which increase the cost for more than 50%.I ended up paying more than the budget - i would have bought a better one for the same "complete budget" - be careful to read "battery and charger not included" otherwise you will be dammed like me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit disappointed in the quality I bought this about a month ago. Since the website says it is tool only. I bought 2 batteries separately. Was surprised when the box came and it included a battery and charger. Positives: So far I have used this product 4 times with snow up to approx. 8-9". I have an 80' double driveway and approx 60 x 14' deck. I found it did a fair job on clearing the snow and had a decent throw. And with the 2 batteries was able to almost do my entire area that needed cleaning (about 1 3/4 hrs of blowing). So the battery life was as I expected, which was good. It doesn't do well with wet snow, but that was no surprise to me. It's light weight and easy for me to lift onto my deck. It is also easy to operate Down sides..I kept the batteries indoors (as suggested). But left the machine in my garage. However, I had to bring the machine into the house to warm up before using. It will not start if the machine is cold. Also on my 2nd use the plastic guard on the side broke off and I now have it tuck taped on (see pic).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could have better instructions I bought the snow blower because I didn't want to be bothered with maintenance on a gas blower and didn't want an electric one. I do have a battery operated lawn mower which I love, so I thought this was the best decision. Anyway, putting it together with no problem, but I cannot get the battery in - the receptacle has 2 additional clamp like pieces on either side which do not grab the battery and there are only 2 prongs that match the battery. So unfortunately, I have not been able to use it. I read the instructions and there is nothing there to assist. I will try again, but I might have to return it.:(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT MACHINE The machine works very well my only complaint is you lowered the price by $200 the week after I made the purchase.

How does it moves ? Should I push it or it moves it self

Asked by: Dim71
Hello Dim71, You have to push it (slowly and gently) as soon as it starts and depends how high the snow was if it's about your knee, push it slowly, try not on wet snow or mix with rain, otherwise its hard to push even I use electric.hope this will help the answer your question.

Can i use this cordless blower with electric cord too?

Asked by: Noman
No but the battery does last for quite awhile as I do a 2.5 car parking stall plus about 3/4 of a block of side walks. Nice and light easy to handle
