With the snow season approaching, was looking for deals on snow throwers for medium sized driveways and came across these at Walmart.com

The reviews are pretty decent for light/medium duty use.

When you're evaluating this make sure to include the correctly rated (15 amps) and cold weather resistance extension cord of appropriate length. $50 or more is very realistic. Using an under-rated extension cord with this is a bad idea.

Cord management is much less fun than you're picturing, since the cord drags snow/ice, and remains covered during storage. Plus you have to consider your routes extremely carefully because the cord needs somewhere to go (e.g. not into the snowpack or in your path).

I don't think that highly of any electric snowblower but the dual battery ones are at least passable for light/fluffy snow duty. The whole point of electric over gas is convenience, having to wind/unwind tons of extension cord covered in slush kind of under-cuts that in a big way (plus it makes a slow snowblower even slower).

I've had an earlier version of this and it worked well for smallish spaces and 5" or less snow. I had some spots where my 30" gas snow blower just couldn't go and this fit the bill.

Yes, you will need a decent cord-- 50' with 12 gauge wire should be OK, but don't try standard 14 gauge stuff or you may find a melted plug Big Grin . I used 100', 10 gauge, but that was overkill. Store the cord in a warm area--store it cold and it will be annoyingly stiff.

(Edit: I used the 100' version of this: https://smile.amazon.com/Yellow-J...06&sr=8-26 )

My garage and outdoor plugs have a GFCI breaker on them, just in case.
