Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insane power, easy to use. Purchased and Spent several hours relocating frozen piles of ice on a commercial site for my Landscaping business. This machine is a beast and will literally take anything you can throw at it. We plow commercial lots, from small Strata to Large malls. I couldn’t be happier with this machine, and it can take some serious abuse without even flinching. Cleans right down to the pavement. Used in Canada, extremely wet heavy, 2 day old frozen snow piles chewed up with a little muscle to rock the machine. I wouldn’t be surprised if this thing lasts us 10 years commercially and 20+ for a home owner it’s built commercial. Don’t hesitate this is the one that does it all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall a great machine I bought this in winter of 2016. Machine has great power but it has some faults. Due to its power, the machine will chew through it's shear pins with ease. While this saves the expense of new blades or belts, unless your on smooth pavement, be prepared to go through quite a few each time you use it. At $7.99 a pack of 4 at my local Cape Breton Canadian Tire, it can get costly as my yard is uneven and I can go through 4 or 8 each time. I also went through a throttle cable within the first week and found through the warranty center service guy, that this new three stage model was experiencing this problem everywhere, hence there was no stock available and no time frame for repairs. I ended up finding stock at a local Yamaha dealer (Babin's service center) whom ordered one and had it to me in two days. I then had to fix it myself. Another issue is if you get wet snow, it can cause the machine to plug up and squeal the drive belt and also leading to the auger control cable sticking. Dry snow though or a bit moist gets thrown 20 foot away making it still an overall great machine. Hopefully this review will result in Troy making some mods to this great unit and also send me a lifetime supply of shear pins ☺

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very dependable This is the machine's 3rd winter. Starts easily and goes through any kind of snow. I love the thumb joystick chute control. Tires have excellent traction and lots of forward torque. Reverse however leaves much to be desired. Sloooww. But I still recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moves wet snow like it’s powder. Bought this snowblower last month. Unbelievable power. Power steering, heated handles and joystick remote chute. I have a massive driveway and also do my friend driveways. Looking forward to many years of use. Awesome product. Three stage is the way to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful Brute! Powerfull Brute of a machine! Throws snow a long distance. Starts first pull, so I don't need to use the electric start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Blower I bought this machine 2 Years ago and its been great, it does have a few faults that I can live with!! The thumb joystick quit on third day but can live with it! I have thought of buying shares in sheer pins as this unit is so powerful!! I have a huge hard and its fun blowing the snow halfway down yard
