After approx. 4 hours of use in its first season, it will not drive or throw snow at the onset of the second winter. Less than a year old. All troubleshooting was not effective. <br />This is a piece of garbage.

More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
A heavy machine for heavy duty use (200+ lbs) ... compared to the two paddle snow blowers that this replaced! Give yourself some time to get used to the controls, but it beats all of the neighborhood machines when we get a 10-12 dump. We live on a hill.. otherwise, the weight would not even be noticed. This is the first machine that I have used (over 6 different models) that will power right through the snow plow berm.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Works great and easy to start. I live in ND and winters are long, cold and we see lots of snow. This snowblower has handled any size drift and made moving snow easy.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
