Why Didn't I Buy This Sooner...
My Simplicity 1222EE snow thrower was delivered two days after I ordered it online. A snap to assemble and started on first pull. Within two days of delivery we got a 10-inch snow and the machine powered through with ease. I couldn't believe how much time this saved me.

Usually I have to set the alarm an hour early when snow is predicted so I can get the driveway and walks shoveled before work, but I'm sleeping in on snow days now. It took me 15 minutes to clear the drive and walks. It took... more

Not Happy With My Purchase Of The Simplicity Snow Blower. Still
I received the new snow blower the next day we had 5" of snow used the snow blower for about 30 minutes then it stop working the engine locked up. I called Snow Blowers Direct and they said that I had to bring it to a Simplicity dealer to be fixed, and the nearest dealer is 25 miles away.

I dropped off the snow blower about 3 weeks ago and still waiting, it took one week to look at the blower the next week had to wait for a Simplicity sale rep to look at it and then another week to get... more

Great Little Maschine
It handled the first snow, about 8" with ease. I love the way it gets right down to the pavement. Plenty of power. The electric rotating chute worked great.

Disapointment
Disappointed to say the least. The snow blower belt broke upon auger engagement after heavy snowfall. Took in for repair, my time and gas waited two weeks to get back having to shovel several times. Upon receiving unit back got another storm worked well for about ten minutes, then auger continued to run after releasing auger engagement bar, when I smelled burning rubber and turned the machine off. I am now taking the machine in for repair again, my time and gas only having the machine less then... more

Exceeded All Expectations
Starts first time every time and it's a very simple pull of the Rope. Nice to have the electric start but when it pulls that simply you really don't need it. Was just over an inch of snow for the first time I used it but it handle like a dream.

It is extremely easy to handle and the controls are very simple to use. I don't make these type of recommendations off hand but this machine exceeded all of my expectations.

Broke Down First Use!
Nice features and it worked well for 1 hour. We had 7 inches of light snow. Then the belt broke and now I have to get it to a service center to repair when it is brand new! Simplicity help only gives you the numbers of the service centers near your area.

Disappointed with this. I think they should send out a new unit if it breaks within a short period of time with the first use. I bought mine 25 days before.

Only 5min Of Use Until Is Stops Working
After buying this for my girlfriend for Christmas we finally got to use it for the first snow fall of 2017. It started right up and after 5 min of using there was a high grinding noise with the machine and cuts right out. I tried to use the pull cord put would not turn and the push to start was making a winding noise.

I guess this blower seized or something else due to the two issues I came across. So I couldn't really rate this due to only having it running for 5 min and now it does not... more

Snow Blower Packs lots of powers, and is light weight. First snow storm of the year and it worked like a charm. Did my yard and my neighbors yards. Easy to use. Great head light and love the electric chute.
