Looking for opinion on this snowblower

https://www.homedepot.ca/produit/snow-j ... 1000837043


The goal i need is

1) To remove the snow on a wodden deck
2) to make a passage from my Cottage to the front of my house in case i need my generator that will be in my cottage during winter
3) I need to know if these would be able to shovel the snow when it will be freezing outside (aka Iced snow)

Thanks

That little electric snowblower is only good for light dustings of snow, its not going to touch "iced snow"

How long of an extension cord will you need for that?!! I guess you could start the generator and wheel it behind you.Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I think it will not work to clear a path to get the generator if you don't have electrical power to begin with. Hmmm, I most likely misunderstood the point. Winking Face

Did you mean “garage” or “storage shed” at your house vs “cottage” ?

Cause a “cottage” is normally a few hundred km away from most person’s house. That’s one long extension cord

There are many factors to consider like location, the size of an average single snowfall , type of snow, whether the path is paved, grass or gravel, length of time the snow sits, etc
