The Simplicity SS922EX single stage snow blower may be compact in size, but this unit really packs a wallop when it comes to moving snow up and out of the way.

The Simplicity SS922EX has a 205cc Briggs and Stratton engine and a convenient electric start - so no yanking on a starter cord to fire this unit up. Once it's running, this model has an auger assisted drive system - it uses itís rubber auger to pull it forward. As the auger paddles rotate, they grip the ground and pull the snow... more

My First Snow Blower
I had to wait 3 weeks after delivery for the 1st snow storm of the season. It was a 8" dumping with drifts of 12"++ . I went out about 9 am so not to bother the neighbors and finished my driveway in 15 min. so I did the next door neighbor's driveway just to learn more about my blower. An hour later and 4 more neighbors I a called it a day. I had more fun and it's easier than mowing the lawn. Very happy with this purchase.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Bad Instructions

Really Good Product
I bought this snow blower in December. I live in Wisconsin and just a few days went by and we got 6 inches of snow. Blower started one pull didn't need to use electric start. It blew out my driveway about, 100 feet in 1/2 an hour. Worked flawlessly! Great snow blower! Have not used my 2 stage blower yet. Would recommend this snow eating machine to every one!
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Quiet, Great Product Very Well Built

100 Times Better Than A 2 Cycle
Shipping was quick and arrived in good condition. The following day we got 6 inchs of snow and this machine made a quick job of it. My only gripe about this machine is the instructions. I had a difficult time starting it the first time. The instructions say turn the choke clockwise but does not indicate how you are looking at it, behind the machine or on the side where the starting instructions are printed on the machine. I chose from the starting instruction on the machine. Of course that was... more

First Snowblower
Arrived two days before our first big snowstorm (only 4" though). Very impressed with the unit, it started first pull on the starter out of the box and first pull when getting ready to blow snow. Did an outstanding job of clearing my two driveways, pathway along the house and the patio between the house and garage - I even walked across the street and did my neighbor's two car wide driveway with no problem at all.
This was a light fluffy snow, will have to wait and see how it does with a... more

"Was a little concerned as the shipper, FedEx, set the box on my porch upside down - and I can see why as the tape holding the box shut had pulled away from the cardboard. Very stiff, heavy cardboard though and didn't see any damage to the unit on a close inspection."

Baptism By Fire
I've been using a Sears Craftsman 2-stage self-propelled blower for over 30 years. It's a beast that will go thru anything, but lately has required constant tinkering as things wear out and break. Plus frankly it's overkill considering the mild winters the last few years. So when looking to replace it I was nervous about getting a smaller machine, but I'm at an age when the big unit was getting hard to muscle around, so I bought the Simplicity, going with the high-end model strictly because of... more

Sound Advice
Having recently moved back to a rural setting with a lot of drive way to clear I was in need of snow blower. I read a number of reviews and talked myself into wanting a two stage model. Next, I talked with a friend that does this for a living. He recommended this brand based on his past experience and also a single stage model. I went with the recommendation and have no regrets. The assembly and operating instructions were simple and clearly written. I have used the blower on four... more

The two screws on the top of the housing were either missing or fell out during the first use (1/2 hr).
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Light Weight, Easy To Store
Cons: Durability, Two Screws On The Housing Either Were Missing Or Fell Off, Can You Send The Two Screws To Replace

Just Awesome!
We have a 1 year old Ariens Compact 24 but, even though it's small for a 2 stage, it is still heavier than I'd like for smaller snows. I decided to get the Simplicity SS922EX after reading the reviews over the last 2 years. I am so glad I did, especially given all the snow we are getting this year. This blower is very maneuverable and powers through the snow. I still use the Ariens for snow drifts but otherwise always go for the Simplicity. Well worth the money!
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Features, High Quality

Just In Time.
Long Island got it's first snow storm, 11in. I put it together the day before and used it the following day on a very large driveway that wraps around the house. The blower worked great and did the job. The following day I finished up a few areas and helped a neighbor clear his driveway. I am very glad I bought it and the reviews are correct.

Simplicity 22 Inch - Single Stage
I looked at several other manufacturers of machines of similar size and found this to be the best specification wise. My only apprehension was the name "Simplicity" because I was more familiar with Sears, Toro, John Deere, Husqvarna, etc. This works just great for me here in Denver, Colorado where we get snow of various depths from 2 inches to 12 inches. I have a 9 car driveway and its just perfect for what I need. Easy to use, somewhat quiet and has adequate power. Highly... more
