I have the H1730e model for 3 years now, and live in the Hudson Valley New York. My driveway is gravel with pot holes and 1300 feet long! Thatís right 1300 feet long. My neighbor helps plowing 700 feet sometimes, but I always clear 400 feet back and forth 5 times, including last yearís 24 inches of heavy wet snow. I walk at least 1 mile at times, Iím 63 years old, this machine has already blown more snow in hard conditions than most people will blow in their life time. I did have to go slow in... more
Pros: Price, Reliable, Easy To Store
Cons: Skid shoes

Expected More
I expected more for the money spent on a snowblower. I have owned and operated many snowblowers with much smaller engines and they all performed about like this one. I figured this one would be a monster but so far i am not impressed. Our first snow of the season was a heavy wet 6" snow and this machine could not throw the snow more than about 10 feet causing me to have to basically blow the snow twice. The engine did not seem to be the problem as it never sounded like it was working hard.... more

I'm Disappointed
I own a simplicity h1730e purchased in 2014 (even though i didn't buy it from snowblowers direct) i wanted to let perspective buyers know what i have experienced with this snowblower. First of all my unit is 2 years old with approx. 12.5 hours of use. This snowblower does have a lot of nice features including the 420cc b/s engine, heated hand grips, side mounted light and all steel construction but here is what i have had to replaced in just 2 years:

1). Rotation switch and rotation motor:... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Durability

Very Hd More Then Up To Any Snow Storm
I bought this blower for its reputation for quality and long lasting lifespan. It is a bit heavy but one must let the big engine power do the work... Unstoppable and very solid build.
Pros: Durable, Features, Reliable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Simplicity H1730e
Waiting for first snowfall. Received snowblower and with little work, got it put together. Very nice machine that appears that it will work very well. I'll know later when snow comes.
