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

Couple Of Tips
I found the impeller belt likes to come off due to a spacer on the motor shaft is on the wrong side of the pulley so that the pulleys are not parallel to each other between the motor and the impeller.

I fixed that... Now I realize the right side auger (when you're at the operating position) is on backwards which will push the snow out towards the front instead of pulling it into the impeller. Other than that it starts right up.
Pros: Price, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Difficult To Use

Waiting Storm To Use It. Bad Pre-assembly Issues
Difficult to start after periods of time even with Electric Start. Unit came with improper assembly - the lever control (cable) for the blades activation was PRE-ASSEMBLED / Wired but discovered the cable was NOT properly strung through and ONTO the appropriate pullies. The initial running and test caused the CABLE to SHRED it's insulation now exposing the cable wire. Notified the originator - NO response. Don't care. We will see how LONG the stripped cable wire will last. Otherwise - waiting... more
Pros: Price
Cons: Packaging, IMPROPERLY PRE-ASSEMBLED, EXTREMELY HARD TO START

Worked Great For 2hrs
The machine did great for 2hrs in 1' of snow no problems until left tire just went flat don't know why no holes or leaks then auger stopped working like some of these other reviews the belt came off put that back on lasted 5 min and off it came again I guess I should have stayed away so now I got a lot of snow to shovel and no snow blower might have wasted money I don't have.

Built Poorly, Throws Auger Belt, No Help From Manufacturer
This is my first snowblower. I am in my 30s and have severe back problems. I bought this machine a couple seasons ago from snowblowersdirect based on their review and grade of the product. They obviously did not field test it and/or are aware of the problems and are just trying to move the product. Logic will tell you that snowblowersdirect is in fact well aware of this machine's common flaw and build issues, but have refused to admit it to their customers and potential customers. ... more

Finally Received Some Snow.
Finally some snow to use this snowblower for the first time. We received about 5 inches last night with the first inch being wet and packed. I didn't use electric start since the pull start is so easy and it started on the first pull. My driveway is about 40 ft long and 30 feet wide.

The first pass was right down the middle of the driveway. The blower motored through the snow without much effort. It even dug down and picked up the one inch pack. The snow was deep enough that I had to... 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

They have built equipment for Husqvarna, Makita, and other leading companies. Daye's support and service is done through American Warranty Service which has thousands of service centers throughout the U.S. Unfortunately due to the season, service centers are often backed up on their repairs. You may contact Daye Customer Support/Service via their toll free number 855-256-2160 for assistance in locating a service center willing to do the warranty work on this unit.
