  4 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 Robert, 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
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Is the simplicity 922exd a 4 cycle engine so you do not have to mix oil with gas?
by Ryan Schroederus from Illinois on September 11, 2014

A: Ryan - you are correct. All of the Simplicity single stage snow blowers have a 4-cycle engine, so no mixing of gas and oil together.
by Robert, Product Expert
Q: Looking at theSimplicity 922EXD (22"). Do you recommend fuel stabilizer for off season or just drain the gas tank and run dry the carburetor ?
Also, is a extended warranty available?

by Bob Stuckey from Missouri on September 11, 2014

A: Bob - yes, we recommend draining the gas tank during the off-season by either running the unit dry or siphoning the gas out of the fuel tank. And we do offer an extended warranty on this model. A one year extended warranty (so a total of 4 years) would run you $59.99, and a two year plan (total of 5 years) would be $89.99. Here is the link that explains how the extended warranty plans work and what is covered: extended warranty

Goodbye Snow
I purchased the Simplicity 922EXD snow blower in the fall of 2015. Winter storm Jonas left about 6 inches of snow that the simplicity easily cleared off my driveway and sidewalk. The only time it stuttered was getting some of the road plowed snow that was sitting higher than the blower but two passes in and that was also out of the way. Well worth the money.

Lasted Less Than 2 Minutes!
Purchased brand new from Snow Blowers Direct. Lasted less than 2 minutes into first use, until drive belt came off and wedged itself between the auger pulley and housing. Now I'm stuck with a brand new machine that already needs to be repaired.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Durability

Out Of The Box
Out of the box , assembly was quick and smooth. During the first use, I noticed that when the auger engages, there is the sound of rough engagement that occurs.

I did not see any rubbing of parts or obvious deformed parts that could have been bent during shipping. I have to call up and see what advice can be offered.

The machine hauled icy compacted snow very well. Also it started well.
Pros: Easy To Use

Loud And Vibrates
Throws the snow very far. Used it in first major snow falls, each 11" to 12" of snow. Walked right through it.
Very loud, sounds like it's going to fall apart.

It shakes and vibrates so much that I will have to have someone look at it to see if anything has come loose. I would think twice about buying it next time for that reason.
Pros: Easy To Use, Light Weight
Cons: Durability, Shakes, Vibrates, Loud

Pretty Good
My first snow blower so nothing to compare it to but this is way better than shoveling. Started on first pull and went through my driveway in 15 minutes. Snow was wet and engine labored a bit but got through it fine. Good to have this now.

Solid Performance
Got to use today on about 12". Worked very good. However concerned about key and the lack of a solid fit, afraid of losing when in use. In delivery, the key was loose in the box. Also, received a clear plastic clamp but no instructions as to it's use!

Decent Machine
I recently purchased this snowblower to use on my deck and as a backup to my large 2-stage. While setting it up, I installed the chute only to find it wouldn't rotate correctly. I removed the service cover and was surprised to find that the large plastic chute rotation gear had a quarter of its teeth sheared off. I'm not sure why, since the shipping box and snowblower arrived in otherwise perfect condition.

I spoke with customer service at SBD and they did the right thing and... more

I Don't Hate The Snowplow Driver Anymore.

Runs Well
Only got to use it for one smallish storm, but it ran well, started quickly, and chewed through the snow!

Simplicity 922exd (22")
After a payment issue, I made contact with a GREAT LADY in customer service who went above and beyond to help with the payment issue. I won't mention her name for privacy reasons, but I would like to thank her again.

Now about the snowblower, this unit is lightweight but powerful. The unit is priced right and blows 8 inches of snow 35 feet, no problem. I really like the chute controller and the unit started right up with one pull.

I'm very happy with this purchase and the shipping was... more

So Far So Good
Used the simplicity for the first time to clear snow during and after the January 23 Blizzard on Long Island and it worked great. It does have limitations as to the depth of the snow but that is easy to understand and when I bought it I did not expect to clear snow of more than 2 feet in depth. I would buy it again without any hesitation..
