Don't Buy Simp Single Stage Blower Over A Toro
I use to own a Toro CCR2000, 1989 model worked good but had to lift to drive. Looked at a new Simplicity electric start was $50 cheaper. The blower wouldn't blow snow untill you pushed it or lifted up on the handle. Not good for a person with a weak back.

Tried a Toro model 38482. Unit had the same size engine. the Toro would move it's self with up to 6" of dry snow. The Toro was $50 higher, but worth every penny.
Cons: Heavy, Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Poor Snow Blower Vs Toro 621 Blower Simp Won't Go By It's Self

Would Buy It Again
I had 3 electric snow blowers, all broke after 2-3 hours of snow blowing. This one works really well, reasonably prized and easy to use.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Instructions, Average Quality

Good Value
Simplicity machines came highly recommended to me, a first time buyer & user. I only needed a little bit of help from my neighbor to get this up and running...very pleased with how easy it is to handle, once I knew what I was doing. It started right up and handled our 8+ inches of snow without difficulty. I am very happy with this purchase and, if the machine holds up as long as the recommendations suggest, it will prove to be a very good value indeed.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight

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

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
