Still Waiting For Snow
I thought I would post another review since I bought my Daye snowblower. I have not had a chance to remove snow with it yet since I bought it last April. I haven't even added fuel yet to start it because I didn't want it sitting all summer with old fuel in it. But yesterday I checked it over to get it ready for this winter.

I have read all of the reviews here and I am concerned about the auger belt that many people here have complained about. I removed the cover to look at the alignment... more

Blizzard 2016
First time to use my new DAYE on Jan. 23, 2016. It did a great job , but on the scond day after the 2016 Blizzard , I just finished half of my driveway when it stopped throwing snow. Engine is fine but the impeller stopped turning. When I checked the impeller belt. , it slipped and was badly damaged. Tried to call 18552562160 , but cannot leave a message because their mailbox is full. Will try to buy a new belt and replace it . Very disappointed on my purchase.

Charlton,
Charlton,

I apologize for this inconvenience. Daye is warranted by American Warranty Service which is a well known and common warranty administrator. Replacement parts for these units should not be difficult to obtain. Unfortunately I do not have an alternate number to reach their technical support. I appreciate your time in composing this review.

Thank you and have a great day!

Sad Daye
Product seems well enough built however like a number of other reviewers the auger drive belt jumps off of the pulley due to a misalignment of the drive wheel and tensioner which can be attributed to the poor manufacturing process.
Pros: Price
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable

Wet Snow Is A Big Problem
The recent blizzard here in Denver gave me the chance to use this product. Wet snow badly clogs the chute, forcing me to stop way too often to clean it out. Additionally, the drive wheel loses traction easily.
Overall, a big disappointment.

Serious Design Defect In Daye Snow Thrower
My new Daye 24 inch Snow Thrower broke the Worm Gear Housing & the Bronze Worm Gear when I was clearing snow from my property. I have been using Snow Blowers such as Cub Cadet, Yard Man, Honda etc. for over 50 years, so I am very experienced with the inner workings of Snow Blowers. I looked at the Daye Snow Thrower & found that the SHEAR PINS did not shear-off like they are supposed to.

After I examined the Shear Pins, I found they were made too large in diameter. I called Daye... more

Great Customer Servos
I bought it in November of 2015 but didn't use it until January of 2016. It worked great the first snow but died the second. Sherry G. helped me immensely in returning it and getting a full refund. I'd recommend SNOWBLOWERS DIRECT but not the Days brand. Thanks again SHERRY G.!!!

Seems Like A Good Choice
I didn't get a chance to blow a lot of snow with it yet, but it went together real easily in less than 25 minutes, and it started right up. So far so good.

Auger Belt
My auger belt came off after about an hour of work. Now it is damaged and won't stay on. Any idea as to the size of the belt needed for replacement, do you have the belts in stock or can I get a size so I can purchase at an auto store.

What A Daye!
This is my first 2-stage snow blower. I decided to buy the Daye DS24E based on the thorough and glowing review by Paul at movingsnow.com. All of his comments were accurate from the nearly full-metal construction to the nearly useless assembly instructions (seriously, if you buy one of these use Paul's videos to put it together).

My biggest complaints about the assembly are: 1) the receiving thread socket in the frame seemed not drilled/cut properly for 1 of the bolts for the lower handle... more

Daye Ds24e 208cc Snow Blower
Heard about the DAYE snow blowers during an Ollies Christmas offer for about $300.00, (all sold out in 3 hours). Looked on line to find ratings on this snow blower: Price is a good factor, it is very low for the quality of the machine. It is heavy duty, ships fast, easy to put together (although as mentioned some parts come in bubble wrap and had fallen out in the main shipping box). All my parts were there, my son put it together in a snap shipped with out oil. The shipping company let me... more

Great Snow Thrower With Fast Delivery!
We recently bought the DAYE DS24E snow thrower and were pleasantly surprised when it was delivered in just two days, what GREAT SERVICE! More importantly though is the fact that although we had not heard of the DAYE brand before this is one solid, well built machine.

Setting it up out of the box was fast and easy with good instructions and it started right away with the electric start. Also, we researched the engine and the LCT engine is the exact same engine that both Ariens and... more

Not Happy
My snow blower arrived in good shape except for a flat tire. The unit was fairly easy to set up and I had it ready to go for the next snow. The tire had a slow leak, so I had to add air every few days. I tried changing out the valve core, but that didn't solve the problem.

Daye warranty service told me they did't have parts to send, but would replace the left wheel and tire when they get them. It finally snowed enough to use the snow blower, and it worked very well until I had about an... more

Great Gift - Handles Tough Wi Winters
Nice Gift - I received this snow thrower as a gift for Christmas and since I didn't have one I was glad to get it. It looks really sturdy, I like the electric start and it was pretty easy to put together. I guess it took me about 30-45 minutes to put the handle and chute on, mount the light and then hook up the cables.

It didn't come with oil in it or with oil so I had to find some but not a big deal. It did come with a couple of wrenches for set up and good instructions. We just got... more

Biggest Mistake Ever
Bought this same snowblower in December of 2014. Was only able to use it twice all winter after getting 65 inches of snow total. The auger belt will not stay on even after adjustments. Waited 3 months for replacement bet..Tried to get it repaired under the warranty but no one has heard of this brand and won't touch it. I am disabled and bought this because it would have been perfect for my door yard. RUN AWAY DO NOT BUY It.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Fast
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Product Good, Shipping Terrible!
The shipping company was terrible with customer service. Woman setting up appointment was extremely rude and unprofessional stating she was going to canceled my order as I did not like the 8 hour window on a week day. Very absurd.

Elevated to the manager and he had the driver give me a call 1 hour prior to delivery, however it was only a 20 minute notice. The most inconvenient shipping, unprofessional shipping company I have ever delt with. They will hurt your business, Snow Blowers Direct.... more

Great Machine
I bought this snow blower a few weeks ago. Iím happy that I did.

Delivery from PED is great, I really did not know how we would get a snow blower home from Home Depot. Depot has delivery but itís expensive, plus the cost of the machine. It was completely worth it to have this machine dropped off in our driveway with the optional lift gate service.

We've had a few snow falls, but nothing big enough to need to clear the driveway and sidewalk. The set up was okay, it took about 20... more

Snow! Snow! And More Snow!
I have used my DAYE snow blower several times now, and I love it. It started right up on the first pull (didn't need the electric start).

It was delivered on a timely basis. Will probably look for a lawnmower this spring.
