Deal Details

I know it isn't the time of the year yet.

For thrice the amount of a snow shovel and some good reviews, I'm willing to give this electric snow thrower a try though. Beats the Toro Power Curve I bought for $230 that was DOA. Our driveway isn't all that big and I was thinking of buying a few more snow shovels so the entire household can clear it quickly when I chanced upon this listing. I'm betting this compact snow thrower will actually make it a little easier to clear the driveway this winter. Those two-stage snow throwers are great but they require some maintenance, have a larger footprint where space is a premium in our garage and emit exhaust fumes that I don't want to be breathing in so this unit is perfect.

I guess it doesn't matter whether you get the $52.99 [Essex] or the $33.50 +19.49 shipping [wesaveyou$] listing as the price comes out to be the same. Might as well try and see which vendor doesn't slap your respective state taxes. I wasn't charged taxes for shipment to NY. Smilie

14-Inch clearing width
Easy chute control
4-3/8-Inch by 2-5/8-inch wheel size
9-1/2-Inch intake height
Folding loop handle
2-year manufacturer warranty.

EDIT: Essex is all sold out now so wesaveyou$ is currently the vendor of choice. Again, it's the same price anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. Smilie

EDIT 2: Dead at the original all in price of $53. I only see $64.99 + $19.49 shipping coming from a third vendor The Real Deal.

I live in the South, where it snows once every 3 winters....will wait for it to come on S&S.
I'd rather have a flame thrower, as it freezes more than snow here

Single-stage snow thrower OK only if clearing a few inches of dry snow. If more, should opt for 2-stage unit.

I live in Colorado... have a 2-stage @ 11 HP... would rather it be bigger and more powerful. Heavy snow often blows only 6-10 feet with this unit.

Are these HDMI cables that support power too? The manual recommends a 100-foot 14-guage UL-approved extension cord, but I'm thinking we should trust Amazon's judgement on this one.

maybe there's an HDMI connector on the snowblower to enable you to watch "Frosty the snowman" while clearing away the christmas snow!
