However, there seems to be another consensus which is opposite to the good comments. People say that the chute clogs quite quickly, one of the wheels accumulates snow and stops turning and one user had the pull chord break on the second time they used it because it wouldn’t start. Reviews say that it doesn’t like wet snow at all and yet a positive review said it never clogged at all in wet snow but did say that it might in really wet snow.
We are torn as to whether we can recommend this snow blower. However, given the low price compared to other similar gas snow blowers and the fact it does seem to do the job if used correctly, we suggest that this Yard Machines 31A-2M1A700 21-Inch 123cc OHV 4-Cycle Gas Powered Single Stage Snow Thrower is given very serious consideration.
