Just saw this and didn't see on Slickdeals, so thought I post it as winter approaches.
May not be the lowest price but good deal.

I think I have the older (non LED light) version of this. Specs are identical.

It works OK. The sweet spot for snow removal is 4-6 inches. Under 3 it's really hard to gather enough snow to throw. I either leave it be or break out the leaf blower. Over 6 and the machine bogs down, so I try to clear in shifts. I say this generalizing heavy, wet mid-atlantic snow. It performs great with powder. I just don't see powder that often. I find it way easier to push this around than remove snow from 150' of driveway.

For extension cords, the gauge is VERY important. This motor is 15 amps. If you use a lighter duty extension cord, the motor is starved for amps and it heats up the circuit. You'll end up cooking the motor or starting a fire.

So first you need to figure out your maximum run from a power source. Then choose the gauge appropriate for that length.

To help:


14 gauge: Good for up to 50'
12 gauge: Good for up to 100'
10 gauge: Good for up to 150'


There are a few US companies making extension cords and they are cost competitive with the imported stuff. So seek them out. Southwire and US Wire are what I have. There might be others.

Many extension cords have a cold rating, meaning that they are still flexible in lower temps. I don't have any cold rated cables and they work fine. Yeah...they're a little stiff, but I think that might make it easier to throw the cable around and keep it out of my snow thrower's path.

One feature that I find really nice is to have a lighted end. That way if I'm using it at night it's often easier to find the end.

Thanks. Anyone have experience with this?
Requires extension cable. Any good snow/water proof cables you recommend?

Seems to work well with any outdoor rated extension cable. Recommends 12 guage extension cable, but have used 16 guage for short runs/short on cycles.Had one for years, still works well for light snow. Not so good for slush/heavy snow.

I've used a Power Smart 13 amp corded for six years now. I started with a 100 foot 14 gauge extension. Near the end of last snow season I got a 100 foot 10 gauge. I should have started with a 10. It makes a big difference. The 10 was over $100 for me at Menards (regional hardware store).

Good luck there.

I have an older, discontinued Snow Joe model. This new one should be better. I'm happy with mine, but we've been getting so little snow in my area that I've actually only used it a couple times in the four years that I've owned it. I bought a cold weather extension cord from Walmart at the same time that I got the blower, and it was pretty expensive. The one that I have is Prime Arctic Blue LT530835.

I love mine! It can get really close to the concrete if you angle it up a little. That's also how I chewed up a piece of concrete so gonna buy a new one on this deal

So tempting but looking for the shovel thrower that runs on batteries.

Use some kitchen spray oil on the impeller and discharge chute (cheapo stuff from $Store) before use, particularly for heavy wet snow. I get about 20-25 mins. of use before the spray wears off. Better, but not perfect, to keep the snow from clogging the thrower. I'm on my 5th season but I only use it maybe 1-3 times a season. I agree with the above comments about using a decent extension cord and not expecting to clear too much heavy wet snow. Multiple passes needed for me to clear my ~1000 sq. ft. of driveway.

AND, if U don't get around to the heavy wet stuff until after any of it freezes, forget it. Ice chunks or other debris will ruin this machine PDQ. You've been warned.

I almost bought this because of the price, thinking this was battery operated. I bought the battery powered SnowJoe for 275.

Does anyone have any opinion on corded vs. battery ? Is it worth the additional 100?

I had a bad experience after buying a similar snow Joe product. The chute was inadequately designed to attach to the body of the snow thrower, so after the first 15 ft of 2 in snow the chute mount points in the front broke off. This caused the chute to bend backwards off of the body of the snowblower and send snow directly up into the air.

I looked at reviews on Amazon and it turns out a lot of other people had the exact same problem, and many people also complained of getting shocked, serious shocks, while using the snow blower.

I bought mine from a different retailer, but here is someone's review on Amazon with a video

https://www.amazon.com/vdp/343ea0...dBicdAN6bY

And here is a deal from a couple months ago that details my experience with sun/snow Joe products.

Avoid snow joe snow blower, it won't last. I had the older model without the led light, the pulley that's attach to the snow auger is made out of plastic will strip off if it got stuck in heavy wet snow. the replacement is hard to find. So avoid them. search YouTube on "snowjoe pulley", there will be many of similar issue. They don't built to last, it broke after I used it for less than 5 times.

Yeah I went through 3 of the battery operated blowers under warranty before I gave up on the brand completely. I was actually still under warranty and eligible for a 4th replacement but I couldn't afford the constant threat of it breaking during use.

Get fluid film from your local auto parts store. Works wonders to keep snow off and lasts. About $10-12 a can and we'll worth it
