It's a single garage/driveway, sidewalk is standard size in a packed neighbourhood.

I guess I will try to shovel this winter to see if I really need it, or until I regret not buying a blower (or not).
if you're gonna showel the driveway, I'd highly recommend you get one of these Garant Sleigh Showels. It moves a lot of snow (relatively) quickly & easily plus it'll also save your back. dont know why its $71 now cos I picked up mine for $25 but you get my drift (pun intended Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes). Im sure you can find an equivalent for about $40 now.

Good deal on a very good product. I live in Ottawa, have a double driveway, and had no issues whatsoever with this last winter. Can handle everything except the wall of ice the city plows are nice enough to dump on us. Everything from my mower, drills, to snow blower are cordless and I have never had any problems. Taking proper care of the batteries is key

get a sleigh style shovel similar to this one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B001FD ... UTF8&psc=1

This went on sale on amazon once for 25 bux. You just "plow" the snow off to the side. No need for lifting or bending or stressing your back. I can do my single car garage drive way in about 10-15 min.

Ego cordless is a good battery blower that performs as well or better than a gas machine, however it assumes you are already part of their shared battery ecosystem- mowers , trimmers etc. otherwise the cost is $$$$$

I purchased this same model last year from TSC during Boxing Day week for $189.00 + tax. It was a show stopper at $239.00 and I had a $50 coupon from Scotiabank to use specifically at TSC. I bought it to use on my patio which is 30 feet by 12 feet and it works awesome. I also have a quad with a blow and a Honda snowblower but found I used this the most last year because it was a year with little amount of snow. My drive way is 40 ft x 35 ft and with 4” of light snow down I could do the entire driveway and my deck on a single fully charged battery. This thing is fun to use compared to my big Honda. This will never replace a two stage blower but even on big snow days if you could clear your driveway a couple of times this will do a good job.

If anyone wants mine, it's lightly used and pick up in Markham for $25. I've ran out of space in my garage for it.

Best to buy the plug in model, batteries are not reliable when so many don't know how to properly store them. Hassle free would be the corded version.

this will be my first winter in a house in Canada and I have no idea if

- Shovel
- Cordless snow blower
- Gas snow blower

Realistically will a snow blower save me lots of time on a regular sized single garage detached house (no corner lot)?

This seems like a good price but also seems to be not powerful enough for when you actually need it the most
You haven't lived in Ontario till you get hit by a snow squall off of Lake Huron and all you have is your rinky dinky shovel!

I bought a cheap lawnmower at Sears over 3years ago. I've never maintained it, just gas and go. Still works perfect to this day lol.

I have a Snow Joe corded SJ618E used for one season and it works well but the cord kills it ..so irritating. I'm thinking of selling it for $100 and buying a gas blower that I won't maintain haha.

If you use a trickle/float charger and keep the battery charged since new, you should be able to get 3 years+ out of it. Most times people charge the battery, let it run flat and then recharge it. This is one of the worst things you can do for a battery and it will greatly shorten the battery life.
Is a 'trickle/float charger' what comes with this snowblower, or do I need to buy a separate type of battery charger to keep the battery healthy?
