No it isn't, and further it saves space in a one car garage. Like anything in life, it;'s a tradeoff. I live in Wisconsin and believe me I know snowblowers, have used many over the decades. I used 2 stage gas 125 pound behemoths until I moved to my current home, which has no sidewalk, a short one lane drive, and a long walkway to the door with intermittent steps (had to deal with when you have a heavy machines). The 609cc two stage was overkill, and prevented me from parking car in the small garage. So I bought an electric 12amp blower to see if it would be an alternative. I was also skeptical so I held onto the gas blower for a full year to be sure I could live with the electric. Well one year later I sold the gas machine on craigslist (even though it was just three years old, almost like new), and have found the electric has served 95% of needs in the three years since -- and I can easily hang it on the wall when not in use. The main annoyance is not actually the lesser performance, but dealing witht he cord as you go back & forth, this takes some "strategizing" on your method to minimize.


I found in life that most things are not clear cut black and white, the best answers often depend on your circumstances, and advice given by those who don't recognize those nuances should oftem be taken with grain of salt.
TU for a good price on a good product. Was $130ish last week on Amazon, but usually a lot closer to $200. Upside to HD vs amazon is 90 day return and local return.

I live in Anchorage AK and we get plenty of snow. I have 3 of these (rental property), been using for about 3 years. The only time they've failed me due to insufficient power was last week. It was a very wet snow and it wasn't throwing it far enough and was piling up on one side of the drive. So by the time I got there it was very thick chunky wet snow and I had to shovel. But this is a wet coastal environment and thats the first time in 3 yrs.

The huge upside is that this blower sits unobtrusively inside my garage. If I had a big MANLY snowthrower I couldn't park in the garage. Now how stupid would that be, to park outside so I could have a manly snowblower? Very lightweight, handle folds up to stick in a closet or shed in the summer. No need to gas up.

If I had a 200 foot long driveway 4 cars wide, no I would not use this.

edit: actually, the model I mentioned on amazon was $135 and was sj621. This deal is SJ619E, which looks a bit more powerful and possilby judging by the picture a bit more sturdy.

Okay, you hooked me with your silly comment and I know you made it just to invoke a response. So you win!

I love my Toro electric snow thrower. It's lightweight, zero maintenance, and does an amazing job on a typical Maryland snow fall for my small sidewalk and driveway. Buying an expensive, gas-powered snow thrower for my purposes is what would be a waste of money; like killing a fly with a sledgehammer.

It's all about choosing the right tool for the job on hand.

If I lived in an area where snowstorms were more frequent and worse and/or had a lot of pavement to clear, then I would buy a more expensive and larger gas-powered thrower.

The Toro 1 stage beat the 2-stage gas in this review.

My "manly" 2-stage is, in fact, sitting on in my front yard; waiting.
It does seems silly, after reading your terrific post, but seems a necessity when snow flies.
Someone sent us a spare Honda rubber-paddle; we returned it to our friend as graciously as possible. He comes from Westchester, NY; different snow. We looked at it and laughed.
But I gotta tell ya; yours is the best explanation for a mini-thrower... VERY compelling.
If only I could just TRY one. Some days, the snow is quite a chore for the Ariens (and, thereby, me).
Repp'd for a great post.

I have a 3-car garage driveway, and this works great in the majority of Colorado snowstorms. I absolutely wouldn't recommend it for heavy, wet snow.

I picked up the small guy
Discover has $5 off $50 for HDHOLIDAY code and also has 10% cashback for HD.
(Discover website mentioned that it is 10% cashback "PLUS" $5 off $50. I'm guessing they both work).

I guess I paid about $50 after tax.
Thank you OP Big Grin

Those are both gas. This thread is discussing an electric unit.
