My parents now live in a condo and snow removal for them has become greatly reduced. However, due to age and ailments shoveling isn’t something they can do so this past year they purchased the Murray Electric Start snow blower. This is a great little snow blower that is perfect for their small driveway and one little sidewalk.
This snow blower is very lightweight and easy to move. My mother can easily push this little guy around and she has no problems maneuvering it. There is only one speed but because of the lightweight one can easily walk faster or slower to make it go at one’s own pace. The throwing distance is very good and the lever to turn the spout is located right on top. It is also very easy to turn. They store it in the garage and have never had any problems starting it. They simply plug it in and it has always started on the first try. There is one simple bar which extends the length of the handle for one to hold to run the snow blower. It is very easy to hold while one is holding the handle and running the snow blower. The handle also folds which makes storing this blower easy as well.
The only issue with this blower is the small size. Fortunately they have 1 small sidewalk and a relatively small driveway. Two passes and the sidewalk is done and generally five minutes worth of work and the driveway is also cleared. For real wet and heavy snow this isn’t the best blower to have though. It can get bogged down pretty easily with really wet snow and large drifts are generally too much for this little guy to handle. However, it can handle any job that shoveling could do and more and it does it quicker and is much easier for my parents to do.
Overall this is a fine little blower. It runs well and is easy to store. If you have a small area to account for this blower is perfect for snow removal. It is great for anyone who has issues with the physical strains of shoveling. I would recommend this little blower for almost anyone.
