Mtd Gold 21" 208cc Electric Start Single Stage
My previous machine was an MTD Yardman that I used hard for 14 seasons. The machine still ran very well, since I was good about doing my maintenance. After doing some reading and speaking with SBD Customer Service, I decided to upgrade to the above machine. The main reason I picked this 208cc one was my previous good experience with MTD quality and reliability and my need to lift this machine by myself into the back of my SUV, as I have several properties to do each and every time it snows.... more

Crazy Good!
We purchased this snow blower to help out with removal since I get home late each night and don't want to spend several hours shoveling when we get a big one. Last week I had the perfect opportunity to push this thing to the limits and uncover any weaknesses. First a little context. It had been raining heavily for two days straight before it turned to snow on the second afternoon. The drive home took about 3 times longer than normal in the heaviest, wettest, and slickest snow I'd ever... more

Good Product, Slight Issues
Nice and light, quite agile. Being a single stage, its snow throwing is not great, but it's certainly whats expected. Electric start is very nice.

Does have some problems tracking straight, and is a bit light ("a blessing, and a curse"), but still very nice machine and would (and have) recommend it to others.

Snow Blower
Excellent experience! Machine looks and runs great. I did have to adjust top cover and add some large washers to rear cover mounts. Will have to wait for snow to test.

Good Value Snowblower
Purchased this model because it was identical to the Sears MTD model selling for $100 more. This 208cc model is very similar to the 175cc models sold at Lowes and Tractor Supply, so I am expecting fewer clogs and the ability to throw snow further-- remains to be seen. This unit started immediately after fueling and runs smoothly, but a bit noisy. It is critical to use fuel stabilizer in these small engines and to use silicon lube inside the discharge chute.

What A Machine!!!!!!!
Ordered my snowblower on 1-18-11 and received it at front door by 1-21-11. What a great turnaround! No problem putting it together, just flipped handle over, tightened some wing nuts, read owners manual quickly and added gas. Blower already had oil in it plus they give you a quart to begin with. Also, powercord and extra keys to start it up. Put in gas, primed three times and started up in two pulls. Just awesome. Blew snow sitting there all day in neighbors sidewalk across the street. ... more

Mtd Gold Snow Blower
I ordered this blower and it was delivered in a very short time. Everything was in the box and the unit was well packaged, no real setup to do except to check and add oil before starting. The unit was as advertised and appears to be a great value. It started right away an ran well, seems like it will be easy to use. I had a 2 cycle unit many years ago (gave it to son when I moved) and it worked terrific I hope this one does as well. Of course we have no snow here in CT as yet so I will... more

Defective Snow Blower
My snow blower has been in the shop since receiving it back in February of this year. Unit could not be started after adding oil and gas. Please help me with this problem. The snow blower is at an authorized MTD repair facility and they are having a hard time finding any literature on the Chinese motor.

SBD RESPONDS: Fortunately, this model carries a two year consumer warranty and your repairs may be covered. Since MTD designed and built these products, their experienced engineers have more... more

Mtd Gold
Got it, love it. I have been a small engine repair man for 40 years. Best price, made in USA, starts up fast, does it's job. Work it hard, like the other review said, you will not be sorry.

Don't forget, change the oil and add sta-bil at the end of the season.

Snowblower
I was looking for a used snow blower and I found some used ones, but they wanted too high a price for them. I checked Snow Blowers Direct and got a new one for just a little more . Thanks Snow Blowers Direct!

You Have To Make The Machine Work Hard
My purchase experience through Snow Blowers Direct went extremely smooth. I ordered it the evening of Sept 29 with expected delivery of Oct 11. It actually shipped Sept 30 and I received it Oct 1 by noon!

One of the wing nuts that attach the handle was cracked in shipping. I notified SBD customer service and I received 2 new wing nuts direct from MTD a couple days later.

I have found that good customer service is hard to find these days, but Snow Blowers Direct was tops in response... more
