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.

Very good for sidewalks where you can keep the chute control in one position. However, shifting the chute control will cause it to fail.

Comment:
Compared to my 30 year old Montgomery Ward this does not feel as heavy duty. That said, I am on my third year with this one and so far it works well. My driveway could easily use a 28 to 30 inch blower but my storage is limited and the 24 inch is the limit. I couldn't pass it up for the price-at the time there was a 20% discount. And for the few times a year needed it clears the drive and walk quick enough. One thing to watch is the small square cut-out at the bottom of the blade housing. It got a rock stuck in it and it quickly stalled the blade and burned through the belt. Lowes had the belt in stock, the instruction manual clearly showed how to change it, and I got it working.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Have used this often and it's performed well as expected. It's a big heavy machine and moves a serious amount of snow. I'm glad I bought it.
