There are several items I wanted to buy from take ten this week but refuse out of principal. Just like I've barely shopped at Home Depot the past few months.

This works great clearing powder snow. Not sure if it will handle the 24"+ we will be getting tonight. Good deal though.

Makes me wonder about those optimistic souls ordering it with Amazon Prime. What are the odds it'll actually arrive tomorrow - or Wednesday - or anytime this week?

Warm wishes to our friends getting socked in even as I write this. Here's hoping you have plenty of books and marshmallows to go with your hot chocolate after each round of snow-shoveling. Have fun watching the kids make epic snow forts and snowmen!

Is this better than a 2 stage gas powered snow blower?

What's you're definition of better? Better at clearing snow? No. Quieter and low maintenance? Yes.

I'd love to see this versus a 2 stage gas blower in 2 feet of snow...I love mine but I've only had to deal with 10inches max, someday we'll get a blizzard and we'll see if I'm missing much...considering how rare that ISO think I made the right choice

I replaced a hundred pound, 218cc 5 speed 2 stage with this two years ago.

Case for answering yes:
  1. I didn't need almost a separate parking space in my garage for the snow blower, it can be hung on the wall even
  2. Easier to start and keep running (even though my old one had electric ignition
  3. My wife could maneuver it
  4. I could maneuver it over the steps in my walk
  5. No need to get/keep gas, etc
  6. No tuenups
Case for no:
  1. It just can't handle as well the heavy of snows (without making sure to do it in multiple passes as it comes down anyway), or the packed snow the plow leaves at the end of my driveway
If I still lived at my old house, with sidewalk and a long driveway that I had to throw snow a distance, it would be much worse to use this over the gas one. But I now live in a house now with no sidewalk and a single lane, short driveway with space on each side to throw snow, and a walk with steps, and it's a qualified yes for those circumstances. The reality is, all snowblowers are a balance of convenience, cost, and effectiveness. The 24" snow that the east coast is supposedly getting, I'm not sure even my old $700 gas powered unit would be fully up to that task, without also using the same strategy of intermediate blowing that I use with this electric model when the snow goes beyond about 8"

I'm not sure where you live, but "bombarded" and "a few inches" are two very different things. Bombarded? This thing won't help you one little bit.

And frankly, if it's a few inches, you may as well just shovel if you're healthy.

Arms and a shovel have more power than 12 amps. Flex

I have a similar one, and it has worked splendidly for the snow we've received up here.

My neighbor was using one this morning, he certainly looked happier than the guys with the shovels though not as muscular Smilie

i live in CO where when we get snow, and we get a lot, we don't freak out like the east coast

i have this electric powered blower for 3 years now and it's done just fine with wet heavy snow and powder. invest in a heavy duty, appropriately rated, extension cord (i have a 150 ft. one to handle my long driveway and sidewalk area).

it does fine up to roughly 10" of snow... more than that you have to make multiple passes over an area to clear it all.

when the big snows hit here, which is often... (1) i don't think the world is going to end (2) i still go about my daily business and into the office because shit still operates and life goes on, and (3) i hit my driveway more than once throughout the storm. as it's coming down i clear the driveway before the snow is too deep to really impact this light-duty blower
