Not bad. I'm surprised to see them on sale at Amazon this time of year.

Is it just me or is dragging an extension cord in snow a bad idea?

It's fine just make sure get a thick gauge cord like a 12 gauge. I haven't gotten electricuted yet.

That's what she said.

But corded snow blowers are garbage. You are constantly having to stop to move the cord or turn the chute.

Lets use some critical thinking here.

Extension cords are designed to be used outdoors.

This product is designed to be used in the snow and powered by an extension cord.

So, either the manufacturer wants to get sued out of business for designing such a dangerous product or it's perfectly safe to use extension cords in the snow.

if you aren't an idiot you'll work away from the socket so the cord stays behind you.

also please show me the magic snowblower that you don't have to stop and turn the chute.

Not as long as you're connecting this into a GFCI protected outlet Smilie And likes others have said, proper gauged extension cord. Not cheap but highly recommend 12-gauge ones.

All these tools have their place...obviously don't expect to throw 8" of wet snow with this but something fluffy and light, sure, you probably can. I just love all the people that assume one product looks like s*** and they simply bash the hell out of it. Not everyone has a 100 foot driveway either.

WEN believe it or not makes decent reliable woodworking tools and is very popular. Even their $25 18-gauge nailer is said to be one of the best nailer for the price. Plus they seem to either make the same things companies like Rikon makes (which they re-badge and charge twice the price).

Eventually you have to turn around, right?

If you aren't an idiot, you can snow blow a driveway without having to turn the chute.
