Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lifesaver "I'd hate to live here in the winter" is the general response I get from people visiting my house and looking at my long, steep driveway. I searched for a long time to get a snowblower that could handle the often slushy and deep NJ snow. This is the snowblower of my dreams. It goes up (and down) the driveway easily but never out of control. In fact, if I stop it midway down it won't even roll on it's own. That proves to be annoying when I want to move it without starting it, but otherwise it's a necessity. You won't be disappointed with this. The headlight is great, it never clogs, and starts on the first pull every time (it has electric start that I've never used).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Beast! I bought this snowblower to replace my old one that finally cost more to repair than it was worth. I did my research and this brand is highly rated and this model gets high marks too. My driveway is on an incline and is 3 cars wide at the top and narrows to 2 car width at the street, about 50 feet long. This wide 28 inch unit makes quick work of the drive. The track drive is great on the incline and the power steering makes turning around a breeze. This unit is heavy and seems well constructed but easy to maneuver. Easy to pull start. Engine seems powerful. Bought from my local dealer which definitely increased my confidence to buy it and so glad that I did!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with selection Setup was easy, but the cable adjustment for the auger and drive was a bit confusing because only one of the two identical bolts is used to tighten, the other is just a guide for the bracket. Also there is typo on the drive adjustment instruction. This engine Is so easy to pull start, I haven't had to use electric starter! The steering triggers are wonderful, as is the one hand control (track lock), fast chute direction change, and heated grips. My 4 star rating on durability is based on the rather flimsy feel of the handle when you go to move or turn the machine. Seems like they should be more rigid to match the weight of the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tracks are the way to go Bought this unit to replace a 15 year old Yard King 10/29. I have used it through 5 storms so far and it has exceeded my expectations in every way. The tracks allow variable down force so I can set it to skim over the top of my gravel driveway leaving stones undisturbed, or move a lever to apply down force and scrape it down to bare pavement. Heated hand grips are great and the power steering means just about anyone can use this machine with ease. Having had several wheeled snow blowers, I can honestly say that I will never buy one of those again! The tracks are awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 2890 Review I purchased the blower in November and used it in 2 storms. The first storm dropped ~8" and the blower did a great job. The tracks allowed me to walk up a fairly steep driveway without issue and the blower cleared a path with ease. The second storm dropped ~12" and in the process of clearing a driveway, the main gearbox (for the stage 1 auger) failed. Shear pins did not break nor did I hit anything but snow. The unit was repaired under warranty. The repair shop had to negotiate on my behalf to get a new gearbox...as the unit was brand new and not even scratched yet. The apparent cause of the failure was a lack of (factory) lubricant within the sealed gearbox. The factory finally agreed and replaced the gearbox with a new one. My issue is it took 4 weeks to get the part to the repair house. I've since used the repaired snow thrower and it works as expected. This failure happened in the dead of winter. I was lucky that we did not have any significant snows while my unit was in for repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I needed a machine that could handle my extremely steep and uneven driveway. It is basically a mountain trail with side slants and some 23% grade inclines, which is really too steep for a driveway but if you want to live on the side of a mountain that's part of the price. Winter is always an adventure at our house It's so steep that a previous large wheeled thrower couldn't climb it due to lack of traction and I couldn't keep it in a straight line to save my life due to all the bucking and side jumping in the rough uneven spots. I needed something that could not only climb back up the hill but throw snow at the same time. My 2890 arrived today. Only took a few minutes to set up and get it started. A few minutes on level ground getting used to the controls then down the hill I went, praying this monster could get itself back up the hill because there was no way I would be dragging it back up. It not only climbed back up, easily throwing snow the whole way, but it was extremely icy underneath the snow in some spots and almost impossible for me to walk on and this machine basically drug me up the hill with it. It saved me from landing on my face and kept me moving uphill in a smooth, non stop fashion. It has such great traction and lots of power. I found it easy to steer and keep in control and oh boy can it toss snow. I drove it out into an open area with month old, dense, wet snow settled to about 8"-10" deep now. Cut right through it down to the grass and tossed it plenty far enough away. I'd read where some people complain about how tracked throwers turn, but I find this one turns on a dime quickly and easily. As big as it is I was a bit concerned about controlling it but that concern quickly disappeared as I maneuvered it into some tough angles and weird spots. Some reviews expressed concern that reverse speed is too slow in this series of throwers. To me reverse is just to reposition. The thing basically does a zero turn so I just spin it around to go back rather than backing up in reverse for any distance. Don't muscle it, let it do the work with maybe just a little pressure from you now and then and it does great. Its got 6 forward speeds and I doubt I'll ever use them all. I went the 300' down one lane and back up the other lane in 4 mins and 20 seconds in 2nd speed and I felt like I was traveling plenty fast enough. I am extremely happy with this purchase. I know I wished others would have provided more detail so I hope this review is helpful Actually looking forward to the next big storm now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Machine Works great. The only thing keeping me from giving it four stars is the fact that the power steering doesn't work very well. Seems to work okay only occasionally. This is the second one they sent me and I am still disappointed with the steering performance. I still have to wrestle it to turn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Operation--Great Traction My biggest concern in buying a snowblower was the 4% grade of my brick paver driveway coupled with 17 years of sealer that are on it. It is so slippery that after a snowfall, you can stand on the top and without moving your feet, slide all the way down to the bottom. I have a concrete co. (43 years) and up until this year, have had my Bobcat parked in the garage for snow removal. After getting rid of my Bobcat, and reading the reviews on this snowblower, I decided to give it a try. This snowblower is amazing! Not only will it practically drag me up the slippery driveway, but it will throw the snow almost all the way across it, at 42'. The ease of operation is also extremely beneficial as I am 70 years old. I have only owned it for 3 months now, but I figured I gave it a pretty good workout, as we have had the snowiest Feb. in Mn. history this year. Thank You for a great product.
