Good Value
I've used it 3 times so far. Each time it started on the first pull, and cleared 3 to 5 inches of wetter snow with no problem. Much more powerful and quieter than my previous Craftsman. Ordering, set-up and operation was a breeze. I would highly recommend this Simplicity snow blower, and Snow Blowers Direct.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Quiet, Price

A Welcome Find
Purchased this little blower recently. Must say upon starting it, I was a bit skeptical. It runs so quiet I didn't think it would have enough power. After using it twice on 3" and 4" of snow I was totally wrong in my thoughts. It starts easily without using the electric start. Performs well with throwing snow as well as scraping down to the pavement. Now I wouldn't say that it will throw that foot of wet slushy snow at the mouth of the drive but it does throw wetter snow with ease if... more

We have not had enough snow to use it yet. I am happy with what I have seen' when I received it. I unpacked it, examined it for shipping damage. I put oil and fuel in it. It started right up, I think it will do just fine ,when we start getting snow.

Practically Perfect In Every Way
First snow blower. Delayed ordering till major storm due the next day. Researched web site and also Consumer Report and settled on Simplicity -- and glad I did. Ordered at 2PM on a Thursday and to my amazement the FedEx truck arrived at 1:30 on Friday (23-1/2 hrs from order time) minor assembly, fueled and ready to use by 2. Started first pull as it has on the three later uses. It meets my needs perfectly. Fold down handle makes it easy to store. Can't yet speak to long term reliability,... more

Glad I Made The Polar Vortex Purchase
The directions for assembly were lacking as are instructions for use. I Youtube for help with little luck. It is easy for a small woman with post cervical fusion and neck issues to push. So I am happy about that!!
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Bad Instructions, Packaging, Instructions Were Like Ikea

A Great, Powerful, Easy To Use & High Quality Snow Blower
After 3 weeks online and local home center search I purchased this great snow blower with free shipping and no sales tax from PED. I placed order on Nov.09 and arrived on my drive way within 4 days. I don't have a chance to try it until Jan. 3rd, 2014. Jan. 3rd Friday right after midnight in our area heavy snow started to fall, by noon time when I wake up the drive way had 8-10 inches snow. After my warm meals, I added gas to the tank with 2 pull the machine started. In 30 minutes my 22 x... more
