Editor's Notes & Price Research
See forum thread for additional deals and discussion. This 20" snow thrower can clear snow up to 10" deep; it features a brushless motor and 180 degree rotating chute. The 2Ah 80-volt lithium-ion battery provides up to 45 minutes of run time per charge.
Amazon price matched!
Previous lowest price on this was back in January... after more than half of winter has past:
Can combine this sale with the Lowe's gift card deal on eBay to save another $20, but you'll have to wait for them to send you the gift cards.
They also have other Greenworks snow blowers on sale, but I recommend sticking with the 80-Volt model.
Sale ends 10/30
- The Greenworks 80v tools are completely different from the 40v tools, and the batteries/tools are not interchangeable between the different voltage lines.
- Kobalt 80v tools are simply rebranded Greenworks tools; they're the same. However, the 80v batteries are NOT interchangeable between the brands. Kobalt messed with the guide-slot of their batteries, so no tools, batteries, or chargers can be shared across the brands, despite them being sold right next to each other in Lowes, and otherwise being identical. It is possible to "mod" the batteries or tools to work, but takes a considerable effort.
Q&A from Amazon (answers are from Greenworks):
Question: Does the plastic blades cover under warranty ? Look like easy to break
Answer: No, the impellor, as well as parts such as the scraper and drive belt are not covered under the warranty, they are considered "wearable" items. The impellor is quite tough and resilient, as long as it does not hit concrete or a large piece of ice it is fine. This type has been used for many years in the US and Canada.

Question: What is the warranty?
Answer: The unit carries a 4 year warranty against defects in materials, parts and workmanship, repair or replace parts or product at Greenworks discretion. The battery and charger carry a 2 year warranty.

Be aware that buying giftcards on ebay can take a while to receive. I bought from GiftCardMall and it took 7 days or so to get to me. Physical cards only.
