I live in Chicago. Will this clear the 4' tall snow banks outside my house? What if I buy three of them?

Well, by the time they arrive, it won't be 4', right? So, I'll vote yes and that you should buy 3.

Great for that pesky light dusting of snow that you're just too lazy to walk over.

Yes it will, although it may take until June to do so. Just plug it in, set it on the snow, and wait.

I don't know.

I bought one of these years ago from an online store in Georgia, when there wasn't a slow blower to be found here in Michigan. I paid a lot more than this for it.

It really is the worst of all worlds - it's heavier than a regular snow shovel, it doesn't have directional output like a snow blower, you can only go as far as your extension cord will reach, and it doesn't throw far, so you may end up moving the same snow more than once.

Still, after shoveling the driveway and sidewalk by hand for a half hour this week, only to turn around and find all my work covered by fresh snowfall, I was happy to have a powered assist for the second time through... and the third... and the fourth.

I'm in upstate NY. I guess you could say we get a little snow every now and then.

My wife bought me a machine very similar to this more than 30 years ago and I still have it hanging in my garage and I use it for light snow falls. It's a Toro Snow Shovel and it's identical to the Snow Joe.

What's great about it is that it works well and it just keeps on working. It's very light weight and easy on your back. Over the years I've picked up a lot of rocks with the machine and the worse that ever happened to the machine was a little plastic chipped off the auger but it just keeps throwing snow.

Nevertheless, this is a small machine and you need to pick your snowstorms with it. If the snow gets much deeper than 5 or 6 inches, you just need a bigger gun. Where I live, however, we get mostly light snow falls which are well within the range of this machine. Every once in a while we get a MONSTER storm which completely out classes the small snow thrower.

Yes and no, we still put up Christmas lights... with extension cords and plugs, etc. Even in the snow.

We don't get any of this "electric snow" in Indiana, so I don't think I need this.

I'm trying to think of other things this might be useful for, because in MN, it sure won't be much good for snow. Will it shred my leaves in the fall? Maybe weed my garden, like a weed whacker? Maybe it blows enough air to be a fire starter. Or a spice chopper. Keep thinking, Wooters, like in cooking, everything is a potential ingredient. Every tool has another use, other than what it was designed for. And probably a better one.

I got it! If you ran it over piles of BB's it would be a heck of a weapon against squirrels and raccons.

I still have mine--or what's left of it. It lasted about 25 minutes.

Works great as long as you have pure virgin snow. They don't take any abuse at all.

The people who know snow blowers ratted this one a C+ which is not that great.http://www.snowblowersdirect.com/Snow-Joe-322P-Snow-Thrower/p3338.html?preferred_placement=1 But for what Woot is selling it for you are not getting better for $50. I bought both a large snow blower and a snow shovel close to this one only with more power and it worked great but it is heaver than this one and I paid double this price go to the bottom of the page http://amerisuninc.com/products.php?sub=1

Y'know, this could actually be useful, even though I live in snow country. Part of my HOA's service is to clear any snowfall over 2", so I wouldn't use it after most snows. But, after those little overnight snowfalls of an inch or so, it could make short work of my front walk and a path to the mailbox. Just enough to help keep from dragging that much snow into the house.

Hmmmmmm...

Bought the same thing yesterday on clearance from Menards yesterday plus I get an 11% rebate. Plan to use it on my back deck and for $49 I don't think I could go wrong.

No, it will not shred your leaves in the fall, but if you leave your leaves where they are in the fall, you can come back after the first snowfall and let the machine throw snow and leaves into your neighbor's yard. No one will ever know the difference...except your neighbor. Finally, in a pinch you can use it as a stand in trolling motor when you go fishing.

I'm from MN and I laughed out loud when I saw this electric tooth brush being advertised for snow removal.

God invented the broom for what this device claims to do.

I love Woot, but this deal is dumb beyond belief.

A good snow shovel would do the same job just as well or better. My 80 year old mother in law (lives in Canada- she knows snow)likes to go out and shovel and sweep her patio for the exercise. She will like this.

I'm thinking of purchasing this for my 75 & 80 year old parents who experience snow falls of 2-4 inches a couple times during the winter... when using the thrower, does it "assist" the individual with pushing it? (similar to the effect when vacuuming with a motorized brush on carpet)

It's not dumb if you live in NJ as I do. So far this season, we've had 4 snowfalls (actually more than that but I'm not counting the 2 inch falls that melt before noon) and all of them amounted to light snowfalls of 4 to 5 inches or less. Why take out the heavy gas thrower when this little lightweight will do the job? You really should move to NJ...no crowds, no crime, no taxes and no unemployment. On top of that, it often rains silver dollars. It's Camelot here!

I also bought the Toro version of this many years ago. The problem with this is that it throws the snow right in front of you, so you're moving the same snow, which is getting deeper and deeper, several times until you reach the end of the driveway. I found that for the same effort it takes to use this, you're better off just using a shovel.

I would buy this for those areas where using my full sized snowblower is difficult such as the front walkway, the porch/steps, and the deck. For those suggesting that a regular shovel would work just as well, my cardiologist disagrees.
