Other way around. 2x24V batteries for a 48V motor.

Guys do yourself a favour and don’t buy this trash. This thing is completely worthless when it comes to the big storms. It’s like taking a fleshlight to a gun fight.

Either spend the money and get a real snowblower or just shovel. If you buy this you’ll just end up using it cuz you might as well cuz you paid for it, and when the real massive storm comes you’ll just curse yourself for buying a completely worthless “snowblower.”

Agreed with others...from yesterday's GTA storm there were two neighbours: one using the Ryobi snowblower and one using a battery snowthrower. The snowthrower died after 20 minutes but the Ryobi performed really well.

If you're going to get a battery snowblower, get one with real juice and battery power. My neighbour bought the Ryobi 21 inch two stage 2x40V 7.5ah blower...it was surprisingly impressive. It's expensive though ($900) so keep that in mind...plus you might want extra batteries.

If you get a snow thrower or similar...get a corded one. Won't be as great as a battery or gas snowblower but far better than these cheap snow throwers.

I hear the ego battery-powered snow blowers do a great job but you got to have spare batteries which add up quickly.

Skip the weak battery operated models. Half the people on my street had the corded version of the Snow Joe and cleared the snow without too much trouble.

There's one massive storm a year, if that.

This is perfectly fine and I have the corded version of it. Been working great for me all day yesterday.

Thanks for the guidance. Any recommendations for below $500 or must one spend $1000-1500 for a gas beast? (Which I am worried will take space in my garage)

The corded 1-stage ones do "OK." You're gonna need to put in some serious effort still. If you want to survive the stuff from yesterday, you'll need a real 2-stage or 3-stage gas beast.

My dad has this and it is absolutely useless if you have a driveway.
If you only have a sidewalk to shovel, it kind of works, but I don't see the point.

Light fluffy snow -> it works, but it's easier and faster to shovel
Wet snow -> it doesn't work. It doesn't throw well and gets clogged 20 times so you have to shovel the last 20% which is the hardest part.
Deep snow -> it doesn't work as it doesn't throw well.
Extreme Cold -> Battery lasts 5-10 minutes

I owned this for 3 years.. and 1 major storm it couldn't handle. It is worth its price.

For yesterday, I just had to thin out the snow with a shovel. But charge it 4 times to complete a double garage driveway for 4 cars.

Once a year maybe. But when it happens you’re gonna wish you had something that can tackle it.

Pretty much anything battery operated is fine for light work. This will be fine for light snow or a minimal build up. It will be awful in wet snow or anything built up.

which battery powered roybi 2 stage snow blower is only $900 unless you're talking about this single stage Ryobi with 2x7.5Ah batteries? If there is one i dont mind upgrading my single stage EGO.
