Beautiful machine!
Really impressed with the whole package, everything works perfectly. For those of us who don't have 4 hands, superhuman speed and eyesight, it does Not take 1 hour to put together - it takes almost an hour just to get things off the pallet and out of the box, laid out and ready to assemble. The reviewers who claim this is a cinch to put together in an hour probably also claim to have cooked one of Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals in 30 minutes! C'mon people - it takes at least 30 minutes to prep the ingredients! Here's a dose of reality: if you are not a freak of nature it will take you 3-4 hours from the time you open the box to the time you roll the completed beast (and yes this is a Beast) into its designated home in your garage or shed. But I'll tell you this. The beast may be powerful, and a little intimidating, but it will turn your snowed in driveway into a pristine fairway. It will turn a snowman into a cloud of dust. Yes, this is the snowblower that needs no introduction, it just needs heaps and heaps of snow.

Good machine at the right price
This is a good mid range machine priced right. Requires some assembly and can be a bit confusing by poor directions. The machine does an excellent job of snow removal. The chute is easy to position and doesn't clog up. Enough power for heavier snow. Very happy overall with the purchase.

This is by far the best snow blower in this price range. I had to replace my Toro after 25 years and did a lot of research and the tech data on this model was the best. It is easy to assemble and started right up. It clears both driveways and is easy to use. Powerful enough to through fresh snow about 30 feet.

Haven't had the opportunity to use this unit a lot but it is much better than my previous 5HP 22" MTD. This one will actually blow slush where my previous unit clogged immediately. Top controls and light accentuate the benefits. Great unit.

Something made in America!!
The Briggs and Stratton is made in America. I purchased it to replace my old unit which breaks down with disappointing frequency. The light is a great feature-- I wish mine had two on it.

It starts easily; I have never used the electric start. I hope with regular oil changes and proper care it gives me years of service.
