Rated 5 out of 5 by NorthernVT Excellent value heavy duty snow thrower!!
I purchased this online with free ship to store. It came packaged very well in a heavy cardbord shipping crate. This is a unique model only sold at Walmart. 208CC (~ 8hp), 26" wide, electric start and light. Brochure states it is designed for 60+ ft driveways and heavy snow conditions.
Ths was simple to put together and on the 1st snow test it performed excellent. I previously purchased a new MTD basic 5hp 22" wide snow thrower also at Walmart for $499 over 12 years ago. This new MTD was only $678 and with the higher hp, features like electric start and a light I feel this was an incredible bargain. I compared this unit to other brands (Cub cadet etc.) and equivalent MTD models at all the big box stores which all sell for $849-899!! My old 5hp MTD never let me down and always started with one pull. I'll stick with MTD for best quality and Walmart to get the best value ...
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wrenchman1 Excellent machine!
I purchased this machine in December, however due to our insanely warm winter, I was unable to put this beast to the test until now (Jan. 21). I am very impressed by this blowers ability in that it just cleared a 7" snow off of my driveway and left me with little doubt that it could do more than twice that with ease. It never bogged down a bit and throws snow a good 30-40 feet. The unit is very quiet as well which is a bonus since we live in a subdivision and sometimes clearing a snow at night is a must. The headlight on this unit is very bright as well when working at night. Overall, I give this awesome machine a two thumbs up, I have no complaints at all, starts right up like a new car and runs well. You wont touch a machine with this same capability for anywhere near this price. If your debating it as I was, go for it, you wont be disappointed!
