  2 Questions
Q: Is it regular gas or mix
by Orlando Vela from Illinois on November 20, 2015

A: Orlando - all of the gas-powered snow blowers we sell have 4-cycle engines. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase - same as in your car. No mixing. You would use regular grade 87 octane gas with no more than a 10% ethanol content.

Q: Does this come with a 120-Volt Electric Start Power Cord?
by Matthew Schwartz from Ohio on November 12, 2015

A: Matthew - no, the electric start power cord is not included with this Simplicity single stage model. We do sell a universal electric start power cord that will work with pretty much any electric start system: electric start cord

Simplicity S S7522e 22'
Finally had snow to try out my new snow blower. I was pleasantly surprised at the ease to use this was. We only had 4" of snow, but it went through the wet stuff without a glitch. I would highly recommend this snow blower to anyone.

Easy To Use
Haven't had the weather to really test it out but it was a snap to assemble and start up. It is compact and in one small area of about 4 inches of hard pack left over snow it worked like a champ.

Fully Assembled In 5 Minutes
The only thing better than the easy setup was the time it took from order to arrival. Stupid Fast delivery maybe 3 or 4 days. Now the bad part. NO SNOW so I haven't gotten to play with it yet and speak to it's actual performance. But I love everything else about it. Thanks Snow Blowers Direct!

Great Buy
Purchased this blower after plenty of research. It arrived two days after I ordered. We just received 10inches of heavy wet snow yesterday. Don't let the 163cc fool you.

This baby cut through it all. I will never use any outdoor equipment again that doesn't have a Briggs powering it. Easy to assemble and use. I highly recommend this unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Quiet

Waiting
Worked good for two snowfalls. Yesterday the augar drive belt came off and got chewed up. Ordered a new one online which should be here in a few days. Am wondering what caused this and if it will repeat. Did work well before this. Would recommend if not for the belt problem. Time will tell.

Exceeds Expectations By A Long Shot !!!
I received the snow blower a few weeks ago. It was extremely simple to set up and ran perfectly with the first pull of the cord! I have started it with both the electric start and the manual pull. Both work perfectly after a few pumps of the bulb to get gas in the carb. My wife has moved snow from the driveway the last several snow falls. I would have bought a blower 25 years ago if I had known the real benefit of having one.

A Best Buy!
I am so satisfied with this purchase. Great price fast ship and best of all it still shiny in my garage because it hasn't snowed yet here in Ohio.

Easy assembly, started right up, and electric start works well.

Put a string on your key and attach it to the choke to keep from losing it.

Great Snow Thrower
I shopped around and read many reviews online before buying this one.. A Prime requirement for me was to buy one made in the USA. This meets that requirement Easy assembly and the electric start works like a charm!. Quality construction is obvious throughout.

I only wish the 8" wheels were a little wider, say 3" instead of the 2" wide wheels it comes with. That Would make it a little easier to wheel around through the grass to get to my front asphalt driveway. (200'... more

The Beast
I bought my simplicity thrower for a few reasons. First off, my old MTD has seen better days, so I decided to look into a replacement. While at the shop where I like to patronize, I mentioned that I wanted an American made thrower. (That's why I loved my MTD).

My friend at the shop said he recommended the simplicity not only for that reason, but said that I'd be impressed with the power, ease of starting, and the quiet engine. I trust his opinion, so I bought one. Four days later we were... more
