---> Deal dead. <---

OK. Don't flame me to death. Hide I know it's just a woot deal, but it's a good price for the Toro 1800 Power Curve Snow Blower (new, not refurb). $130 + $5s/h delivered to your door. This is an ELECTRIC (corded) snowblower. Deal here [woot.com] (as if you didn't know where woot was).

I got one a few weeks ago, and the little thing really does work well, if you don't mind having that pesky little cord trailing behind.

Previous thread on it here.

I didn't see it posted yet, and I looked thrice. OK. Commence the flaming. Sadwalk

($200 currently at Amazon [amazon.com], but recently has hovered around $150+)

Does anyone know if I can cancel my woot order? Ordered like 10 mins ago and just sent a message thru support asking to cancel. After ordering I saw a couple youtube vids and it looks so weak. I can shovel way faster and it doesnt seem to throw far either.

Two-stage o' betta.



Unless you live in northern Florida this probably isn't worth it.

Picked this up on an SD from Amazon for $126.91 back in 2007. I love it with the low-temp extension cord. It works great for the majority of the snowfalls even in Chicago, and for the really deep outliers, it's just a matter of shaving off the top 10 inches with one pass, and then coming back for the remainder.

If this powerful enough to handle the compacted wet snow the plows leave at the end of the driveway?

Good for light snow states, and single ladies who can't handle a big machine. Bad heavy snow areas and guys who want a snow toy. Good price on shipping though.

This is a great price on a great product. I would never buy anything from Woot ever again after my last experience. Buyer beware and stay away from this POS vendor.

I have one of these and also just did a quick browse of youtube. I'm impressed with mine and didn't see any videos that would fit the "so weak" and "throw far" complaints. I'm guessing mine throws a good 15 to 20 feet. Dug out from a 40" snow with it and can assure you a shovel is not faster.

Been using it for a few years now, in the boston area. Does the job perfectly if you use it before the snow gets compacted/wet. Throws the snow far enough, and this thing is super light.
Of course it can not compete with the heavy 2 stage gas models, but for what it is meant for, it is perfect.

awesome, adding $64.99 to the deal to make it an even $200.
I'll take a $10 shovel laugh out loud

For most people that get under a foot of snow at a time $200 is still a better deal over a gas which is way larger and costs double to triple the cost. I would definitely buy a gas one if I had the room but with all of my other stuff in my shed, simple do not have the space that one of these can compact down to.

And it was you who didn't want to deal with an el cheapo eletric cord.I just showed you one that would meet your need. Home Depot had a 75 foot one the other day for $20.

And if you have any doubts look at this video

Yeah. The use of electricity to operate machinery that is used in a wet environment like snow throwers and pressure washers scares me.

As do electric chain saws. When I need to use a chain saw, it is to remove tree limbs that have fallen and knocked out my electricity.

Likely not. That kind of snow gives even powerful snow blowers fits. My old moderately-powered single stage gas snow blower can't really handle it. That doesn't stop me from forcing it through there, though, so maybe you'll be ok. bounce

Mostly it's going to depend on how heavy, icy, and deep it is. Probably too many variables to give you a good idea or not.

You have maintenance with a gas snow blower as well. It needs tune-ups, spark plugs, oil, air filters, and so on like any other gas-powered engine. I can do all that myself so it's not a big deal to me, but for others electric snow blowers certainly have a lot of convenience going for them. I've used my Mom's electric on her driveway when I've been home for holidays and never had any complaints. I'd consider switching to an electric in the future for NE Ohio winters.

This is great if you have up to four inches of snow to clear. If you have a huge driveway and you wake up one day to over half a foot of snow you would really need something more. Anyone north of Florida or who has little to clear away go for it but I have to own a two stage myself.

I bought this when it went on clearance for under $100. Little machine does a nice job on my driveway, sidewalk, deck and porch.

It did a great job running through 6inches of freshly fallen snow, but is completely worthless if that snow has already been driven on.

However, that being said dealing with the cord is a pain in the ass. You can't just do long strips on the driveway, you have to handle it in sections so you don't run over the cord.

After struggling with a 100ft extension cord that I already had that was hard to maneuver in the cold weather I finally invested in a $65 cold weather cord [amazon.com], however now I'm getting closer to the price of a low end gas blower -- and I'm regretting going electric.
