About - Troy-Bilt Storm 2410 31AM62N

The Troy-Bilt Storm 2410 31AM62N is a snow blower available from Troy-Bilt. The Storm 2410 31AM62N typically costs $600 .

Consumer Reports recommends that you match the features on a model to the needs you have. Here's our take on some of the specifications and features that are commonly available on snow blower models like the Storm 2410 31AM62N.


Engine size:
Engine Size is the engine displacement measured in cubic centimeters for gasoline powered engines. Most manufacturers not longer give a horsepower rating. Engine displacement is now the only universal way to compare relative engine size. Electric motors are stated in amps.

Electric start:
Most models offer a plug-in startng device that saves you the hassle of pull-starting the engine, but you need to be near an outlet.

Multiple speeds:
For two-stage models, most come with multiple forward speeds and two reverse speeds. The ability to vary ground speed according to snow conditions gets the job done faster. Some of the least expensive two-stage models have only one forward speed.

Tested Model
The Ratings of Craftsman 88957 were applied to untested model Troy-Bilt Storm 2410 31AM62N, which in our judgment is enough alike in its performance, features, and specs that our test results apply to both.

Comment:
Although there is basic assembly required I found that to be fairly easy in the mail part except for attachment of the snow thrower chute due to a very poor diagram and unclear instructions. The machine came with oil already added so it just needed gasoline. The machine starts first pull of the rope and even easier with the electric start. I would have liked to have a headlight for early morning operation in winter but since there is none I used a LED bike front lamp for illumination for $15. This machine is easy enough for my wife to use as it is very maneuverable and responsive. So far I thoroughly recommend this Troy Bilt snow thrower.

Comment:
I have owned this reasonably priced model for about 2.5 years and the engine through a piston. I take good care of my equipment and I remember my father getting 17 years out of his snowblower. Engine repairs will cost me around $180 (doing the work myself) or almost $400 for a new engine. I'm very disappointed with this product.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

good machine but chute control mechanism

Pros
Good Starting
Cons

Comment:
Very good for sidewalks where you can keep the chute control in one position. However, shifting the chute control will cause it to fail.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
