Q: Does this include the battery and charger?
by Toni Storm from Maryland on November 27, 2015

A: Toni - yes, the battery and charger are included
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Can you use this on a gravel road?
by Mary Z. from California on August 01, 2015

A: You would not want to use this on any gravel road or driveway. This snow blower has paddles on the front of it which make contact with the ground and this could/would cause damage to the snow blower but also anything around it as it would likely throw rocks it would pick up from the road.

If you are needing to use a snow blower and you are needing it for a gravel surface of any kind, you really don't have a whole lot of options other than a 2-stage snow blower. Please give us a call and we can discuss this further. 800-710-7499.

Q: Re: Snow Joe Ion 18SB Rechargeable cordless single stage snow remover. Is it possible to take the battery out and charge the battery and then put it back into the snow remover. Please let me know. Thank you.
by Eileen Finnegan from Delaware on December 15, 2013

A: Eileen - yes, the battery on the Snow Joe iON18SB can be removed from the snow blower when you need to charge it.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Is it possible to operate the blower connected to power outlet after the battery completely discharges?
by Alex from Massachusetts on December 05, 2013

A: Alex - sorry, but the Snow Joe iON18 will not operate off of direct electrical current. This unit will only run off the 40-volt battery.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: How many inches of heavy snow can it move?
by John from Massachusetts on September 25, 2013

A: The Snow Joe iOn is can easily handle up to 8 inches of light, fluffy snow and can throw snow up to 20 feet. This snow blower is not really intended to handle heavy or wet snow.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Is there extra batteries available ? Can they be changed in the field to keep the crews working or would it be too difficult?
by Bill Hack from Illinois on September 09, 2013

A: Bill - the replacement battery is listed in the "ACCESSORIES" tab. They sell for $149.99. The battery is extremely simple to change out. No different than changing the battery on a cordless drill.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Bob - What's the charge time for a fully discharged battery?
by Steve from Maryland on September 09, 2013

A: Steve - charging time for the battery on the Snow Joe iON18SB is approximately 3 hours.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Are the 40 volt batteries compatible with any other brand?
by Doug from Wisconsin on September 09, 2013

A: Doug - the EcoSharp battery used in the Snow Joe iON18SB is only compatible with Snow Joe and Sun Joe 40-volt products. The battery will not work in any other brand tools.
by Robert, Product Expert

Q: Is the Snow Joe iON self propelled?
by Bob Belknap from Washington on August 28, 2013

A: Bob - the new Snow Joe iON is not self-propelled. You would need to push it to move it.

Snow Joe Snow Blower
If you would have asked me a year ago if I would use a battery powered lawnmower, I would have said “heck no”. Then I tried the Ego and my mind was changed. Ask me two months ago if I would ever use a battery powered snow blower and I still would answer “No”. However after using the Snow Joe, my mind was changed once again. Now to be honest when I first heard about the Snow Joe, I can’t say I was really excited. For me it was a battery powered snow blower from a company I had never heard... more

Could Not Be Happier
Purchased the iON 2 years ago and never expected to use it on 30 inches of snow. Yes it was light snow, but between tilting the unit up and pulling the snow down with a shovel, it did the job.

Snow Joke
Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. This product is a major disappointment and It really can not handle more than 2 to three inches of snow. I will never again buy such a stupid product. I'm laughing at these great reviews since I know its all a bunch of crap.

The battery cover keeps opening while using the unit. Have to use a rubber band to keep it closed while using the unit. What a joke this snow blower is. I've had it for 2 years now, and I'm gonna get rid of it... more

Good For Moderate Amounts Of Snow
I bought this as an experiment to see how well a cordless snow blower could work. My guess was that it should be able to handle the amount of snow that we usually receive where I live. Unfortunately this year we've received a lot more snow than usual!

The first few storms that I used it on were all under six inches, and this did a good job of clearing off my driveway. It turns out my driveway was a bit larger than could be done on a single battery charge, so I ordered a second battery. ... more

It Works Very Well
I have used this gem a few times now.

It is almost perfect!

It is so light and easy to use - it is almost fun to get out there and clear the snow. It beats using a shovel and lifting - big time. I almost trot with my Joe (it throws farther if you walk a little quicker pace) because it is so easy and light, which means I get done in about 15 minutes - and that is great!

It is quiet. I have been out before dawn and after 10pm - and nobody in the house knew a thing.

We had some... more

I Guess You Only Had It 1 Season
Well, last winter my wife bought me the ion18SB and it did OK, not great. After 1 snow fall this season it's dead. The swell flashlight works and the chute still rotates, but the blower is dead.

I'm guessing at about 8 snowfalls, this machine cost me $50/use. I could have stayed in my house and paid someone to do the work... Since I'm pretty handy, I'm going to take into my basement and see if I can't figure out what's wrong with it.

As for my review, consider buying something more... more

Ivan,
It sounds like the safety key is not in place or has become dislodged from the unit. The headlight and chute rotation will still function, but the unit will not start; this is by design. Try to re-set the safety key in its place. This will allow the iON to start! If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-866-SNOW-JOE for more information.

Tips For Using Snow Joe Ion 18" Cordless Snowblower
This product works well and easily if you are at home during the snowstorm and are able to go out and use this product repeatedly before the snow gets too high. I wear good boots, thermal layers, heated gloves and a plastic poncho to keep warm and dry. If you wait until the end of the snow storm, the snow may be high and the machine may be difficult to push. Once the snow ends, brush away any residual snow with a broom and apply thermogenic ice melter to prevent ice, specially on sloped areas.... more
Pros: Quiet, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again, Features

I Can't Wait For Next Snowfall !!!
I have to start by saying I always read reviews but have never been motivated to write one. I live in Minnesota. This blower works great. I have used it 3 times. 2 light snows and today was a good 5 inches, with some deeper drifts. My driveway is about 70 feet in length and 30 feet wide in one part and about 15 feet wide on longer part. Blew it out in about 25 mins. Then I did about 1/3 of the road in front of driveway. Then I blew out a car width in front of mailbox...still going so I went to... more

Just came home after working a double shift to find almost a foot of snow around my house. This little thing worked GREAT. I had a Toro that would never start. Every man could start it, but I could not---and this was with an electric start. I used the video to put it together, and I am really pleased. The only drawback is that you really have to push it in deep snow---it is not self-propelled. But I gave out before the battery did. I am totally impressed. I will charge it overnight, and... more
