[Lowe's] Lowe's Greenworks snowblower Clearance sale

I got the leaf blower and snow blower combo for 299. Also signup for newsletter for $10 dollars off. I have seen my neighbors use just leaf blower to clear snow. Edmonton has really dry and fluffy snow. I think I will be ok with just the 40v set.

A battery powered snow blower? Seriously?

Seems insane but maybe it's easier than a shovel.

Those batteries will need to be brought inside between uses, the chemistry really suffers below freezing.

I have a 40v model from Kobalt, my thoughts:

1. Does great in certain circumstances - it will plow through dry snow of any volume with ease and will shoot it 10 feet away.

2. Does not do great at all in wet snow / hard packed drifts / etc.

3. I'm not sure who stores what where, but I have 4 different Kobalt tools that all take the same batteries and I keep them all in the garage so temperature has never been an issue for me. Using a 40v 4ah battery I can go for quite a long time using the snowblower.

My recommendation would be to at bare minimum go for the 80v - the 40v just doesn't have enough juice to get through anything other than powder or just very slightly wet snow. I think the 80v models are 2 x 40v batteries in at the same time but I could be wrong.
2013 Wins - $1320 - Woohoo!

I have the Kobalt 80v snow thrower which is comparable to a single stage gas model. It’s insane how well it works especially for the clearance price I paid. Had no need to even fire up my 2 stage gas cub cadet. I shovel for exercise and when light snow, but I am impressed with the performance, quality and warranty. Not all machines are equal and I wouldn’t pay full or sale price as the longevity is still questionable and batteries expensive. But for deep clearance discount I went for it last year.

80V 2AH seems silly though. Cash grab by greenworks when you buy a 4AH battery.

I was gonna say, the 80v version may be the hot deal, not the 40v.

Ditto. great little blower until the chute handle broke end of last winter. Called Kobalt and they sent me to warranty repair 4 years after purchase (box says 5 years warranty).

Batts get warm in a snow blower, they need cooling more than anything else.

I have the 80v model and used it for the first time last winter. As stated previously, it struggles in heavy wet snow but works pretty well with lighter snow. I have 3 batteries and a fairly small urban driveway and it went through 4 or 5 charges in deep, wet snow. Wet snow clogs the chute fairly easy.

That being said, I was quite pleased and understood that there were drawbacks to a battery powered snow blower. But no gas in the garage, no cords and the battery charging time was good. And even with the challenges, I preferred it to shovelling.

I got the Kobalt cordless one in clearance last year for some 149 bucks, which is literally free for this stuff.

To be honest, this definitely lack a lot in power if the snow gets wet or hard and constantly gets stuck in the plastic blades. So its a pain to keep on cleaning that while blowing the snow. That being said, for 140$ I have no complains and I get it out as soon as the snow starts and that cleans up my small driveway no problem. if I didnt have cars standing on my driveway, the idea would be to use these blowers 3-4 time everytime is snows, however its a pain to remove cars and do that, especially when it snows very heavily.
