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.

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

3 Years In... Its Great When It Works Optimally.
I really like this unit. Most of the time its a one pull start. The carb is crazy touchy though. If gas sits a month you never know what you will get. I used this with the choke on to some degree 90% of the times i used it. Even with stabilizer, it gets gunked up fast. I have had many other engines that are no where near as touchy as this thing as far as the carb getting gummed up. I use sea-foam frequently on this and striped the carb apart once entirely to do a deep clean.

Nice Snow Blower
This is a nice small & light snow blower, but big enough for my wife to use. I expected better in the packaging and shipping of it, it came with a dent in the top corner of the intake, the handle was not secured to the machine, and the screws for it were loose in the box, it could have caused more damage.
who ever packed this machine did not take pride in there work. This is supposed to be a brand new machine, and it would of been nice if it came with an extra drive belt. Other than that... more

Tons Of Power!
Coming from a 2-Stroke Single Stage Snow Thrower, I can't believe the power and torque difference. The 250cc engine hardly works and really throws the snow. It starts easy, no smell, and is pretty quiet. There are two things that I think could have been improved.

The rubber auger rubs on the shroud and can make a pretty loud vibrating sound, and the shoot-turn switch should be turned 90 degrees so that you are pressing left or right instead of up and down. Other than that, I absolutely... more

Finally Got Some Snow
Just got our first measurable snowfall of the year, so I could finally put the new snowblower to the test... It's a beast, packed with great features! First, the electric start is a must-have. I started this unit way back in October, when I bought it and then it went into the shed to wait for snow... well, it's been a very light winter here in South central Pennsylvania and up until this morning, no blowable snow all season. We got hammered overnight, to the tune of 12-15", so I was ready.... more

Not As Effecient As Toro Single Stage
I purchased this snowblower instead of a Toro commercial single stage based on the recommendations of your expert at snowblowers direct. I originally chose the Toro then changed my order because of the larger engine , features and write-up.

after previously owning a Toro, i am disappointed in the snow uptake and forward propelling of the snowblower by the impeller. my old Toro had more torque, despite a smaller engine and did a much better job scooping up and blowing the snow. Often takes... more

Worked For 5 Seconds
Put together with no problem and started on first try. I went to engage the auger and nothing happened for a few seconds and then it engaged. I then let up on handle to make sure it would disengage and it would not. Auger kept going. Finally had to turn off machine using key.

Made adjustments to auger length per manual. Tried every setting. The auger would never engage again. Machine broke immediately and is now at shop. There are so many reviews on this site and others about auger issues... more
