this is a single stage snowblower. Corded snowblowers is like a corded weedwacker/lawnmower. It really depends on how big the area you're going to snowblow. Just letting you know that you probably would have to go out in the middle of the night if its a huge storm. Don't think single stages will do very well when there's about a foot of snow. And i know its more than you want to think, but you also have to think about what kind of snow you're going to get, Is it heavy? slushy? wet? Imo, i would just go for a 2 stage snowblower that walks itself.

I have neither because I don't like lugging cords around. However, seeing as these electric snow blowers are less than even a used single stage gas blower ($150 in my area for one that's 4-5 years old), they look pretty tempting. But I've never seen anyone use one nor hear much about them - despite the fact that I've seen them advertised a bunch this season.

I definitely want a two stage self-propelled, I just don't want to drop the $$$ on one. (Or as I told my wife, my back wants one but my wallet doesn't.) Big Grin

WARNING:

I just returned the Weed Eater leaf blower above that I got from the in the last deal. The product itself was in good shape but this model is SUPER WEAK. I tried blowing off my back patio with it and it blew the dust somewhat but rocks the size of a pea and bigger would not budge. I think I could get down on the ground and blow harder. (no jokes please).

I may try this bigger one though so reps to the OP.

Also, VMInnovations is great about customer service and the Husky chain saw I got from them ROCKS!
Like the other person that responded to you, the one I received works perfectly too. But I would say that people shouldn't expect to blow small rocks with it. My unit does handle pebbles but I don't have very many of those.

I used to rebuild my carb's on these weedeater blowers every 3 years or so but this is about the same price as a new carb and new fuel lines. So I just bought a whole new unit for when my current one dies.

I hear ya. My parents recently moved, and i didn't get a snowblower. Lets just say after the first storm, i bought one. But of course, there isn't really a huge snowstorm that hit just yet. I spent a lil more and get one that has turning capabilities. but two stage are around $500. With a single stage gas, it'll def help and is worth it against not having a blower at all. But i feel like a single stage is more for city area where you don't have a huge garage to store tools. In the burbs, bringing your the single stage feels weird when everyone around you has a two stage.

Just grabbed a 150BT, property has quite a few large trees and neighbors trees tend to shed over the property line, go figure. Thanks OP!

Snow Joe Max SJM988 for $99 (refurb) directly from snowjoe. Appears to be the same thing, but $10 cheaper (also has free shipping).

I can vouch for the snow joe snow-blower. I own the sj620 and it rocks (it seems to be the highest rated snowjoe on amazon, with the others not doing nearly as well for some reason). I also bought mine direct from snowjoe last year based on a slickdeal posting. I have never owned a gas blower before because where I used to live, snow was not a big issue and I could easily get away with a shovel. However, where I live now, we get on average 38" a year with approx two major snowfalls a year.
My driveway is about 50' by 20' in addition to a 50' walkway. The reason I went with electric is that I did not think the amount of snow blowing I would do could justify the maintenance/upkeep/noise/price of a gas snowblower. In fact, a lot of my neighbors surprisingly do not even own an a snow-blower and just shovel by hand (or have their kids do it nod ). A few have gas powered snow-blowers, which I think is overkill for my neighborhood and they are crazy loud. The last snow storm we had, the snowjoe ploughed through 10" of snow easily. The neighbors with gas powered snow-blowers definitely were done faster than me, but only by maybe 5 minutes. The snowjoe also scrapes along the ground down to the asphalt leaving a clean path. The neighbors with gas powered snow-blowers seem to leave a thing layer of snow behind. In addition, it is nice to be able to just press a button and start snow-blowing than to be struggling to pull-start a gas powered job. My only regret is that I got the 50' power cord which is slightly too short for my use.
For my circumstance, the electric is perfect, but if my property were much bigger, or if we had heavier snowfall, gas would have the clear advantage. I guess an easy way to look at it is if all your neighbors have snow-blowers, you probably need the power of gas powered snow-blower. If some of your neighbors seem to somehow manage with shoveling, an electric probably makes more sense from a cost/convenience/sound level standpoint.
