Both are at the bottom of the pile for respective electric/battery snowblowers per Consumer Reports.
Why would you make anything designed to work in winter battery-powered???
I have the battery powered version listed here and also their slightly larger more expensive battery powered one. They work great for normal snow over 2" and up to 12". They can also be used with snow over 12" but will take more effort and you may have to lift it to cut into snowdrifts. Great for decks, sidewalks and small to medium driveways. Battery lasts for advertised 40 minutes.If the snow is heavy/ wet then call a plow service. Not one problem with mine last winter in New England.
Buy a used made in America 2 stage gas snowblower. For less and at a greater quality.
I bought one years ago and the cheap plastic broke on first use. Kudos to woot for returning full purchase price back. I ended up paying the same for a black and decker that still works amazing. Overall these are great for 90% of the light snowfalls a year and incredibly light weight.
I have the 40v SnowJoe and it is amazing. I bough it for the last blizzard in NJ and it performed better than I expected. Battery lasted long enough to do my walks and drive and I was abusing it big time but it worked well. It’s light enough the wife can easily use it and it stores nicely in the basement for off season. I also bought the Sunjoe mower when on sale so now have 2 batts so time will never be an issue.
I have the blue one and I bought an extra battery for it. It has worked really well for the few snows we have in Northern VA, but really anything over 10 inches and wet, this is not going to be the best option. It is lightweight, easy to use, and I can get about 45 minutes of solid blowing on a battery. It is really perfect for fewer than 10 inches, and/or fluffy snow. I paid a lot more for mine, so this is a bargain. I would not hesitate to get it again if needed.
Can I use the larger one on a Trex deck without damaging it?
I have the corded one but without the light. I am very happy with it. Just remember to factor in the cost of a GOOD outdoor extension cord when comparing prices.
This is cheaper than a gas unit and you don’t have any of the hassles of gas. No running to the gas station to get gas. No need to buy oil to mix with the gas. No need to do tune ups.
You also need to keep in mind the limitations of the unit. It will not do deep, wet snow in a full width single pass. If the snow is under 6 inches of powder, you can breeze through the snow.
You need to be mindful of the extension cord while you use the device. I through it over my shoulder and then move it with each pass.
This thing is junk.
- I just tried my iON18SB (40-volt) for the first time on about 2" of snow. Is thing supposed to be this terrible? All it does is push the snow around and doesn’t blow any of it - it just clogs. So disappointed - was hoping to save gas usage by using this on smaller amounts of snow, but I guess I am just going to have to go back to my regular blower. Thank goodness for Amex purchase protection.
