Home Depot has a deal on their lowest-priced 2 stage snowblower. Looks like a Black Friday deal, expires today, 11/25. Didn't see it listed elsewhere on SD.

https://www.homedepot.com/p/Power.../204746556

[EDIT: It is electric start, not manual] It does have the newer standard 212cc motor. Reviews look decent. Best price I've seen this year besides the Craftsman base model at Sears (already off sale).

Oh, I was also able to use my unique 10% off or 12-month financing coupon codes received by mail as a card holder. I chose the 10%, bringing it to ~$359

have the 24 in. 208 cc Two-Stage Gas Snow Blower of this worked fine last winter. haven't used it yet but it had more than enough power to get the nasty stuff at the end of the drive way, and pull started every time.

Description says it has electric start.
Powerful performance and convenience are what you can expect from this snow blower. Its push button, electric start engine and speed variations let you handle your work with ease. The ergonomically designed machine comes with foldable handles, aiding easy storage when not in use.

Weird that the pictures show different models, one with basic chute control and one with nice chute contols. Too bad not in stock around me.

Nice find, good deal. I think you mean 212cc though, not sure if these have the power of a Honda Accord haha.

Is this better than the Sears deal earlier: Craftsman 22" 179cc Dual-Stage Gas Snowblower (88433) for $399?

Same question, just picked up my craftsman the other day and wondering if it's worth returning for this instead

A decade ago I had a non self propelled. I switched to self propelled and it's well worth it if you have any kind of incline or grade to your driveway/walk ways.

As a side note I have two year's ago model and it's not very well built. Make sure you tighten EVERYTHING. The sheet metal is super thin, one bolt came loose and the chute is a very thin and cheap plastic. Oh, and check the drive belt on these as they're known to come loose or off centered on the pulleys. Now granted it's half the price of the older Ariens I have, it's not too bad, but folks who have the time, wait until spring and buy the floor models in the big chain stores on clearance. The more expensive ones are well worth it in terms of build quality.

Tempting but having a hard time getting behind these cheap snowblowers. Guessing this is made by MTD. I suspect this is a safer bet than the Craftsman, especially if you have any plans to get the service contract, considering there is a decent chance that Sears will be gone within a few years.
