  2 Questions
Q: Is it regular gas or mix
by Orlando Vela from Illinois on November 20, 2015

A: Orlando - all of the gas-powered snow blowers we sell have 4-cycle engines. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase - same as in your car. No mixing. You would use regular grade 87 octane gas with no more than a 10% ethanol content.
by Marissa, Product Expert
Q: Does this come with a 120-Volt Electric Start Power Cord?
by Matthew Schwartz from Ohio on November 12, 2015

A: Matthew - no, the electric start power cord is not included with this Simplicity single stage model. We do sell a universal electric start power cord that will work with pretty much any electric start system: electric start cord

My New Snow Buddy!
After a record breaking snow season in Massachusetts with over 122 inches of snow, this little buddy never let me down! It was delivered as promised and right during the 3rd storm dropping another foot of snow. This little machine was able to move snow anywhere from 20 to 30 ft. away!

I have yet to use the electric start! it has always started on the first pull. The only complaint I have is that I wish the wheels on the snow blower to be a little bigger and more rugged. My driveway has... more

Waiting
Worked good for two snowfalls. Yesterday the augar drive belt came off and got chewed up. Ordered a new one online which should be here in a few days. Am wondering what caused this and if it will repeat. Did work well before this. Would recommend if not for the belt problem. Time will tell.

Exceeds Expectations By A Long Shot !!!
I received the snow blower a few weeks ago. It was extremely simple to set up and ran perfectly with the first pull of the cord! I have started it with both the electric start and the manual pull. Both work perfectly after a few pumps of the bulb to get gas in the carb. My wife has moved snow from the driveway the last several snow falls. I would have bought a blower 25 years ago if I had known the real benefit of having one.

Old Lady
I had to buy a blower b/c my neighbors seldom helped with removing my snow. There are 7 neighbors with blowers in my immediate vicinity---occasionally, if I asked, they would do one pass or I paid to have it done!

I decided buying one would be an investment and I would not have to beg people to help me out.

I looked at many sites and talked to local stores. I called Snow Blowers Direct and spoke to three different people. They answered all my questions and gave the number to a local... more

Amazed.
My old snow blower died during the largest snowfall of the year. There were no blowers available locally, so I checked online. Snow Blowers Direct popped up with exactly what I was looking for, and it was in my price range.

I had never heard of simplicity, but my co-worker told me they are made in her hometown in Wisconsin, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered it on Wednesday after 1 p.m. with standard shipping, and was amazed to see it on my door step the next day by 5 p.m.

Frustrated
I expected some assembly would be required, but the shell came detached with the screws in the bottom of the box.

I am having a difficult time finding the right tool to fit the head of the screws to connect the shell to the base.

The screws for the chute have a slit down the middle. It would have been nice if the other screws were the same.

Finally had snow to try out my new snow blower. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease to use this was. We only had 4" of snow, but it went through the wet stuff without a glitch. I would highly recommend this snow blower to anyone.

Fully Assembled In 5 Minutes
The only thing better than the easy setup was the time it took from order to arrival. Stupid Fast delivery maybe 3 or 4 days. Now the bad part. NO SNOW so I haven't gotten to play with it yet and speak to it's actual performance. But I love everything else about it. Thanks Snow Blowers Direct!
