Make sure to buy a right extension cord with it.

A quick google search for this model brought up results for a Yardworks and a Snow Joe model of similar design, specs, etc. Comparing images of them, it looks like they could even be the same blower just rebranded.

Yardworks ($299): https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/yard ... 0583p.html
Snow Joe ($248): https://www.homedepot.ca/product/snow-j ... 1001112482

Considering the price of the other two, it seems like this is a pretty good deal. Ended up purchasing one, thanks OP.

I just bought this, great price.

For those not familiar with HH - check ALL the stores in your area if the price is $199 because chances are another store around you has it for $149.

Was shocked to find out home hardwares are all individually owned and the owners get to set their own refund policy and ignore flyer prices if they want to.

Everything on their website is up to store discretion.

Maybe your regular cord is 14 guage? If it's 16 you may start to blow your breaker, or reduce the life of the blower.

I have an 18" snowjoe version. It gets the job done but in heavy snow it takes just as long as shoveling, but it saves my back. Note if you use this in cold climates you may want to tie down the black cord so it doesn't flap around and bend while you're using the machine, in cold weather (-30) it can break off. My model is 7 years old though, newer versions may have an improved plug. For 150 this is a great deal though, however keep in mind a 100 foot 12 guage cord runs around $70-100

Gunna give this thrower a try. Thanks for posting OP!

Picked one up for $149 by calling my local HH. None in store, but lots at warehouse, and will ship to store for free.

Now to find an extension cord deal...

5 Year exchange warranty. Quoted from Home Hardware FAQ.

"Anonymous · 2 months ago
1. What does "limited 5 year warranty " mean? Most warranties posted do not have the word "limited"

"Home Hardware Support · 2 months ago
Thank you for your inquiry. This product has a five year exchange warranty for manufacturers defects with bill of sale. Mishandling of the item is not covered under this warranty."

I assume it's an exchange warranty at store level?

Picked this up yesterday and used it today.

..wow! I had an older Snow Joe before, but this thing blows it out of the water. I used it on heavy, wet snow. It worked really good. Only part it struggled with was the end of the driveway, which was expected.

Is Benchmark a decent brand? There are several other enticing products on sale... drill bits an etc?

I think if you are buying a snow blower a cordless one would be key

So in order to purchase this, I would need to call a local HH store and ask them to make a special order from the warehouse? How long did it take?

Well, check your HH store first. Mine had no stock, so they ordered for me.

Also keep in mind some HH are curbside pickup only. Mine allows in store shopping as well as pickup.

Usually takes 3-10 days to order in. No biggie. They’ll call when it’s ready. Never had an issue doing this before. Pay when you pickup, so no obligations..

Similar level as mastercraft (not craftsman) stuff from CT. Maybe a bit better, IMO.

I grabbed a benchmark twistor cordless screwdriver for $9.99 from the boxing day flyer. Seems like a decent lil unit for the price! Haven’t used it yet, but i like it for ten bucks haha.

This is why I keep shoveling.
