Amazon product: Snow Joe SJ618E 18-Inch 13 Amp Electric Snow Thrower
I live in Ontario, Canada. I paid $145 for this (on sale) and I’ve used it about five times now in sub-zero weather with snow as deep as 1 ft. Even at 20 degrees below freezing (Celcius) its electric starter was good. It’s easy to lift (I’m a 57 yr old woman) and it easily plows through light dry snow. I even assembled it myself in about 45 minutes. Where the snow gets plowed off the road blocking the driveway entrance, it is heavy, packed and hard. Here too, however, I was able to clear the snow in layers, which took a little more effort but still less effort than a shovel! I have a gravel driveway and so wasn’t sure how it would do on that. Turns out it was no problem because you can control how close to the ground you want to get. Doing my driveway and pathways takes about 15 minutes instead of one hour or more of shovelling, so I’m pretty happy! This product, so far, has exceeded my expectations.
