Easy to use, controls well placed, works on deeper snow. Handling My husband is a lefty and would like the controls reversed (haha) but it works fine for me. Very easy to maneuver and adjust. Our driveway has a hill, and I (as a small woman) can maneuver this snow blower both up and down the driveway (great going up hill) but also going sideways on the hill depending on the way the wind is blowing and where I want the blown snow to go. Durability Has made it through several storms, both light/fluffy snow and heavy/wet snow, and have not had any issues with it. Even ran over a garden hose - still worked after we were able to get the hose removed. Ease of Use We have a large driveway, but still easy to move around and use after using for long periods of time. Engine Power Good power for getting through the deep snow. Works quickly on the light amounts of snow but can plow through the heavy and wet stuff too.
