My New Snow Buddy!
After a record breaking snow season in Massachusetts with over 122 inches of snow, this little buddy never let me down! It was delivered as promised and right during the 3rd storm dropping another foot of snow. This little machine was able to move snow anywhere from 20 to 30 ft. away!

I have yet to use the electric start! it has always started on the first pull. The only complaint I have is that I wish the wheels on the snow blower to be a little bigger and more rugged. My driveway has... more

Good Purchase
I was really torn between the proven reputation of Toro and the slightly larger width and greater cc's of the Simplicity.

The "more" won out. It arrived the day before a major storm rolled through. After a simple assembly process, I had it ready for the next morning. Worked great and threw some serious snow!

I can't wait for the next storm to roll in so I can play with my new toy again.

Old Lady
I had to buy a blower b/c my neighbors seldom helped with removing my snow. There are 7 neighbors with blowers in my immediate vicinity---occasionally, if I asked, they would do one pass or I paid to have it done!

I decided buying one would be an investment and I would not have to beg people to help me out.

I looked at many sites and talked to local stores. I called Snow Blowers Direct and spoke to three different people. They answered all my questions and gave the number to a local... more

Best Machine
I've been shoveling snow for the past year, and I was getting tired of it. This year, with all of the snow, I made a decision to purchase a snow blower, and quickly.

The product arrived just in time, right before a snow storm hit. That gave me the chance to prepare it and use it. It was quick and easy, but the following day I lost the manual. Is there a chance you can send me another one?

Amazed.
My old snow blower died during the largest snowfall of the year. There were no blowers available locally, so I checked online. Snow Blowers Direct popped up with exactly what I was looking for, and it was in my price range.

I had never heard of simplicity, but my co-worker told me they are made in her hometown in Wisconsin, so I decided to give it a try. I ordered it on Wednesday after 1 p.m. with standard shipping, and was amazed to see it on my door step the next day by 5 p.m.

Snowblower
It is a nice snow blower but it is very noisy and heavy to push if you are a petite woman. It removes the snow good. It has a 22in clearing path. I think a bigger person would find it easier to use. I think it would be better if it did not make so much noise when you are using it.

Frustrated
I expected some assembly would be required, but the shell came detached with the screws in the bottom of the box.

I am having a difficult time finding the right tool to fit the head of the screws to connect the shell to the base.

The screws for the chute have a slit down the middle. It would have been nice if the other screws were the same.

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
