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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

Handled The Deep Wet Snows Of North East Ohio.
I bought my snow blower back in November. Up until now all that I could say was Great Price, Fast Shipping, Easy Starting, performed under average snow fall,

This week 2/16 in North Eastern Ohio we got 12 inches of wet heavy snow. The Simplicity SS7522E handled it like a Champ. I cleared mine and 2 neighbors drives 18' x 60' in under an hour. The blower was able to throw the wet snow all the way to the other side of my drive with room to spare.

Electric start is great, but this... more

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
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Light Weight, I'd Buy It Again

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.

First Pull
Simplicity snow blower starts on first or second pull, though it has electric start, I've had no need to use it. Throws snow from center of my drive out. Smaller engine is more economical, but for more power the larger would also be a great buy. I bought this over a Crftsmen for $15 less, 1" wider and deeper and because it is made in the USA in Milwaukee.

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
