Electric start from an extension cord is great. I cleared about 6" of fresh snow with no problem, 18" width is great. My old 2-3 hours of shoveling took 25 minutes! Oh, not great on ice, so just clear snow before it gets slushy or icy where vehicles have gone.

I'd used it only once, which is a very early to have a definite answer. That time, the blower operated as expected, no issues and did a very good job, having about 2 to 3 inches in the ground. I would like to have more time to fill this survey so my opinion would be more accurate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This machine does a really wonderful job on snow. since I turned 80 years old it was decided that I needed to quit shoveling the side walk. This was the best decision that could have been made for me.

    (1) Is it self-propelled, I mean do their wheels will turn by themselves when running? (2) One consumer claimed that within warranty period, the "motor shot", but told is not covered by warranty, is that true?

    Asked by: ccpyue
    Not self propelled. Not sure on the warranty question. Took mine back. It worked well but the 100 foot extension was too much to deal with.

    Do you have to mix the gas with oil,or they have separate compartments.and where can you buy the cord for the electric  starter.Thanks

    Asked by: Charles
    Please refer to page 6 of the instructions manual for steps on how to properly fill the oil fill compartment. It is recommended to use only a UL-listed, 16-gauge extended cord no longer than 50 ft to start the machine which can be sold in your local store or online.

    Is this unit self propelled?

    Asked by: kevin
    Thank you for your question. The Power Curve® Rotor system, with wide rubber paddles, propels pulls you forward clearing compacted snow right down to the pavement.

    Although it is not listed in the specifications it does have a corded electric starter; you have to supply the cord.
