---> 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+)

I live in the northeast and have used this on foot deep snow storms including Nemo. Worked great, does that make you upset? And I also used it on neighbors driveways and cleared out a few vacant houses after the storm and made money with it. Due to its light weight, I can literally throw it in the back seat of my car and the cord in the trunk. Try that with your 2 stage. Not pumping the product but everyone who has tried my OLDER 1800 is surprised at the torque the electric motor has. If you tried it, maybe you'd think otherwise but it's clear you haven't
No it doesn't make me upset at all lol. Infact it makes me happy that there are cheaper alternatives to a $1500 snow blower. I have no experience with electric snow throwers, just hearing from people "in the know" about how they suck. Maybe they used them back in the day or never used them either.

I don't see how it could throw the snow like a 2 stage snowblower though. Especially for Nemo even with the 2stage blower sometimes it didn't throw it far enough and I had to go over the area again. I have a 550' driveway on a hill though, so it's horrible. I doubt a snowthrower could handle that but I'll look into it more after your comment. I'm currently looking for a new snowblower since my Ariens died after 27 yrs.

I'll have the heart attack fighting with the frozen cord while trying to move 6 inches of wet Mid-western snow. I'll pace myself and use the shovel. Or borrow a 2 stage, Big-Boy Snow thrower.
You are a stud

I've got one of these and it handled the ft of snow that fell in Denver over saturday night. I cleared my sidewalk and drive pretty easily.

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

I have this and use a cheap extension cable. It was 5F when I used it to remove 11" and the cord was a little firm, but hardly rigid. This thrower works really well and saves a ton of time. Go ahead and use your little shovel, I'll be done and inside long before you finish with it. wave

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.
You can do long strips, just have to think a bit about where you are going. I have a three car driveway and sidewalks, even parts of the street sometime. Cord is obviously more nuisance than no cord, but I'd hardly say you can't do long strips.

From the specs, the toro 1800 is the better blower--but hey, you saved $25! The SJ622/623 are the models most equivalent to the 1800.

To anyone interested in Consumer Reports, they rated this snow blower as the best electric one they tested. However, they said all the electric ones they tested didn't even come close to a decent gas one, and they did not recommend you buy any of the electric ones.

Better off using a shovel instead of these crappy throwers.

if you live in the northeast and had this to clean up the last blizzard it would be a joke. Might as well shovel. You need a snowblower, not a thrower. A snowblower has 2 stages so it can handle way more snow. You also don't push it, it moves forward and you walk behind it. The only thing this is going to do is very little snow with and very small driveways, no hills.

Dug me out of over 3 foot of snow in a last bad storm, I'm guessing the one you are talking about. Way less work than shoveling and no back ache at the end of the day either. Driveway, gravel about 16' X 50'. And yes it has thrown quite a few stones with no damage. Even tackled about the same amount of the street out front as we never get a plow and I could still walk at the end of the day. It's a nice machine and more than enough for me here outside of Baltimore, Md. Cost me about the price of one tune up or minor repair on a gas model. I don't think I'd trade for a gas. My neighbors got a massive 2 stage to clean about the same amount of driveway. Personally think it looks a little overkill and ridiculous for our climate.

Don't give poor advice when you don't know what you're talking about. I bought one of these at target on clearance last year. I have been using it all winter and it works beautifully. In fact I sold my old heavy John Deere gas powered unit because it was overkill for my needs. I would buy another Toro electric blower in a heartbeat.
