Lowes now has the 80-volt Greenworks Snowblower for $299 - the same as their Cyber Monday deal. You can knock off another $30 by using the coupon below:

Code: 47000RRRRR3237R (Replace All Instances of "R" in Code With Random Numbers)

This is a great deal on the best cordless-electric snowblower out there. I was about to pull the trigger on the 40v one on Amazon for the same price, but thankfully saw this sale at Lowes on the more powerful machine. Reviews are really fantastic - saying that this machine competes with significantly larger gas machines, and is much more powerful than the similar corded unit that GreenWorks sells.

And just in time for the massive nor'easter that's coming this way... I just picked mine up, and the $299 price is available both in-store and online. (Though, strangely, the Lowes app on my phone shows a sale price of $349?) Normal price is $399.

Me too - I was actually trying to buy the 40v version of this from Amazon, but the shipping time is a month out, so I finally gave up and tried to find something local for the impending storm. Then I stumbled across this deal - double the power for the same price - and I couldn't pass it up.

I'd wanted to stay within the 40-volt ecosystem, since I have a few of those tools, but this 80-volt stuff sure does look interesting. (Particularly the 18" chainsaw...) Based on the reviews, this snowblower is much better at powering through slush and ice, and perhaps a bit better built than the 40v one -- though they clearly share some parts.

I own the 40V greenworks snowblower (won it on their Facebook page). Ive only used it once but it worked pretty well. I also have the 40V Lawnmower, Pole Saw and Blower/Vac. Their products are pretty good, I don't see any reason to own the 80v stuff (at least not when I own a TH) If I ever bought a single family home I'd consider upgrading to the 80v stuff

Try it from a computer. It shows up as $350 on my devices as well, but as $299 in computer browsers and in store.

Homeowner here with 2 acres and too many trees. I've got the 40v chainsaw, and it's a little champ. (Also have the 40v mower, and damn near all the Craftsman C3 19.2v stuff...) Now that I'm venturing down the rabbit-hole of 80-volt gear, I might try and sell off the 40v stuff to streamline - though there's no 80v pole saw...

One thing to note with the 40v stuff, it's also compatible with Sears/Craftsman 40v gear. (Whereas the Ryobi and Kobalt 40v line use a different shape battery casing.)

For those that only get a couple inches of snow (ever), this MAY be acceptable, but anything more and I HIGHLY suggest looking at something gas powered. Beside the fact that water and electricity don't like each other, this has an 80V 2Ah battery rated for 45 minutes of use. Given that data, it's pulling ~2.7A at 80V, which is around 215W of power. That translates into slightly less than 1/3 horsepower.

That said...I've got a 6.5 horsepower gas powered snow blower, and even it gets slightly bogged down at times in less than ~10 inches of snow (it's rated at 22in), and the stresses can be too much, even at 50% rated capacity...it's consumed several shear pins over the past few winters.

I'm not trolling, just giving some experienced advice for those in interested Smilie If you have a decent amount of snowfall and want to ensure you have a tool that you can have faith can do the job, and do so in a reasonable amount of time...invest in a gas powered model.

Just picked mine up. Box was small enough to fit in the front seat of my car. Took me 10 minutes to put together. Feels pretty solid except for the lever for rotating the chute. That feels like it could bend easily, especially if the chute ices up. Now I just have to wait for a few inches or more of snow to see how this little guy performs.

For "those that only get a couple inches of snow ever" this would be way overkill. If you only ever get a couple inches of snow, you need a shovel, not a snowblower!

Actual user reviews for this model are very strong, claiming that it chuggs through 6 to 10+ inches quite well - even the heavy packed plow-ridge - and the youtube videos support those claims. (It's more about torque than power, and electric motors are better with low-end grunt than their gasoline counterparts.)

I would imagine that most people looking at this want it to handle occasional snowstorms. Based on the reviews, it will do that swimmingly, and comes with a 4-year warranty.

Now if an SDer lives in a crazy lake-effect belt, they may well want to invest in a 2-stage, tracked gas unit. Those cost north of a grand, weigh over 200 lbs, and need to be serviced annually. To each his own.

I'm about to be crushed by Blizzard Juno - so I'll report back in a couple days on how this little guy stands up to a considerable amount of snow!
