I think I will pass - sounds like you get what you pay for.
Some reviews at Overstock:
I was tempted, but Amazon reviews scare me. Their website is not fully working. Makes me question how good that warranty is.
The site works, just not that page from Google.
I assume from the warning about not being able to be returned, in the description, that this means that a defective item cannot be returned(if I’m wrong about this, correct me)…this is definitely a deal breaker for me.
What confuses me is that it has a big tag that says “Holiday Returns” with a link that details the return policy and the item is not listed as an exception or special. Then the description says Woot doesn’t permit returns.
I’m assuming it’s the latter (no Woot returns), but if so it’s deceptive to have both messages there.
It falls under hazardous materials.
For defective, you work with the manufacturer (see warranty) to get it repaired or replaced if needed.
if you live in an area that routinely gets more than 4" if snow, do not get a snow thrower.
If you live in an area that routinely gets more than 4" of snow, you probably already know this.
No thanks…If a seller won’t accept defective returns, I’m not interested.
Sorry, I don’t need a gas snow blower because I picked up one of woot’s $99 electric blowers a few years ago and I’m still feeling smug about it.
That’s totally fair, but this is a pretty standard policy for gasoline-powered items among online retailers (including the mothership if I am not mistaken)
After 4" you should use a snow blower… probably a 2 or 3 stage unit.
Here is the brief rundown on snow blowers from someone that lives in a place that has received over 200 inches of the white stuff a year on occasion: this particular unit is a single stage, which means that the blades take the snow and push it up through the neck of the unit and out. That limits how much and how far the snow gets thrown since there is not a second or third stage of additional devices pushing the snow along. This is a step up from an electric snow thrower. I have one of those along with a 9 horse Ariens 2 stage unit. This should be good for 4 or so inches of moderate snow at a pass, but not that much really wet snow. The key with a smaller machine is more frequent passes of smaller amounts. Listen to the machine and don’t strain it.
I hate dragging out the 200+ lb Ariens snow thrower, so if at all possible I use the single stage electric unit that is similar to this. As with any machine, understand its limits or you will get to test out the warranty. Break up any ice dams at the end of the driveway and take smaller amounts rather than trying to clear everything in one pass. This also won’t throw the snow nearly as far as a 2 or 3 stage unit that can go 35 ft or more. This is not a beast to take on a foot or more of snow at a time. I have a neighbor with a similar Toro single stage gas thrower and he does pretty well with it, but he is out there every few hours during a heavy snowfall.
