Over this past weekend we finally had enough snow to test out our Snow Joe Plus snow blower! While the storm called for nearly 8 inches of snow for us we actually only got maybe 2 with 3 inch drifts in some spots, it was a job perfect for this electric snow blower.
When you take the Snow Joe Plus out of the box all you have to do is snap together the handle by screwing 3 of the pieces together. Next, you insert a key that comes with it and viola, your ready to start throwing some snow! We plugged it in and it started right up with the push of the button on the handle, which is so much better than cranking on a gas blower! The snow from this storm was heavy and wet but the Snow Joe Plus took care of it with ease and blew it off of our driveway and walkway quickly, the Snow Joe plus glided nicely over the pavement and made the job a lot more easy than shoveling. The handle is ergonomic and was comfortable to hold on to throughout the job. It’s also very light, 12lbs. to be exact, which made it easy to maneuver.
- Cuts snow up to 12” wide and 4” deep
- Three-blade rotor throws snow up to 20 feet
- Powerful 7.5 amp motor moves up to 300 lbs of snow per minute
- Key lock prevents unauthorized use
- Ergonomic design and adjustable handle alleviate back strain
- Instant start
- Uses electricity, not gas, for hassle-free operation
- Lightweight (only 12.5 lbs.)
- ETL approved
- Full 2-year warranty
The one thing we wish it had is a wider coverage area so that it could blow away more snow with each swipe. It’s great for an average snowfall but in heavier spots it does get a little stuck so we won’t be getting rid of our gas blower but overall, we really like the Snow Joe Plus, it handles well and is great for decks, walkways and porches and is a great alternative to shoveling, it’ll save us plenty of backaches in the winter! The Snow Joe Plus is very affordable as well at a price of $99.
The Snow Joe Plus is available to purchase at www.snowjoe.com for $99 but right now it’s on sale for $89! Also, with spring right around the corner be sure to check out Sun Joe’s line of electric lawn and garden care products.
