2 questions about the greenworks snow thrower. #1 - how loud is it (can I go out at 4am and not wake the neighbors?) #2 - what's the depth of snow when it starts having trouble and burns the battery quicker?

You're still chewing up and throwing snow, so you'll have that noise regardless. BUT, the snow thrower itself is about as loud as a vacuum cleaner. Outdoors, the two sounds combined would be barely noticeable to any neighbors who are not actually outdoors.

As for depth, it'll chew up to the 10" height of the chute...the deeper/heavier the snow, the quicker the battery runs out. I wouldn't count on 45 minute run time with anything other than powder snow though, so an extra battery would be a good purchase (or just buy another tool that comes with the battery and build your collection that way).

I'm so on the fence about getting an electric snow blower. I love the idea and I'm sure it'll be fine for a lot of the time, but I do live in NY and we do get heavy/wet snow from time to time. I see deals on gas snow blowers in the 399-599 range and really feel like I'm probably better off just spending a couple hundred extra to get one of those.

Am I wrong?

I got this last year to compliment my two-stage gas blower and shovels. I use the Greenworks for snowfalls I used to use shovels for (it saves a lot of time and wear on my back plus I can quickly do all my neighbors sidewalks). The gas blower tends to be slow. awkward, and overpowerd for lighter snowfalls. The Greenworks does handle snowfall I used to get the gas blower out for, but the occasional heavy snow fall and all the damage the city snowplow does requires a self-propelled two-stage thrower.

The way I'm reading that is.. If you have the money to spare and the space to store this then it's helpful to have around but for folks like us who live in places where snowfall is expected you really should have something heavier duty sitting around. As you point out, I can't imagine not having a machine anymore that is capable of throwing that huge pile of snow and ice the city dumps at the end of my driveway. Based on your description this would not be able to handle that.

If you live in snow country, this Greenworks shouldn't be your only blower. The Greenworks is great if you have a lot of light to medium shoveling.

It wont power through a snow bank. Its not as powerful as an average gas single-stage and my neighbors with single-stage blowers (and those with poorly maintained two-stage blowers) need help from those of us with good two-stage blowers.
In my part of Wisconsin we have many 2 to 4 inch snowfalls (sometimes it seems we get a few a week for a month) and the Greenworks is by far the fastest and easiest way to clear my driveway, sidewalks, patio, and deck off. Storage is easy too because its light, I 3D printed some hooks to hang it in my shed.
For big snowfalls I use my self-propelled two-stage blower. The Greenworks needs to shave away a plowed-in snowbank and struggles on sidewalks when the city plow throws too much ice and pacted snow on.

I'm in queens.
Got this last year, and I was disappointed. I think I was better off with a shovel.
To be fair, it was after a 6"+ snowfall followed by rain and iced over. I think if I started earlier and often this would've worked well (meaning through the night while it's still snowing and soft).
I'll give it another try this winter and see.

Thanks, appreciate the feedback. Yeah, I have moved on from this and am thinking 2 stage gas powered. As soon as I see something good drop to 399, I'm gonna jump.

How does this compare to the 40v greenworks cordless model? I have all greenworks 40v tools and no 80v tools and would hate for a good battery to sit unused until winter.

Thanks

Been thinking about getting it a while. Is this the best deal to hope for, or anyone has seen better deal on BF? I'm ready to pull the plug on this. Thanks
