I own the 80V 23” snowthrower. I don’t know if the 40V will do the job (not enough power). Curious to know if someone owns this model.

My 80V throws the snow far enough and gets the job done during heavy snowfalls.

Is there a price match at Rona? This does not seem to be sold by Home Depot.

How have you found it? I've been leery about cordless snowblowers because batteries don't normally do well in cold weather, curious as to how the power is on it, and how it handles heavy snow? I have the lawnmower with a couple batteries, if it made sense I could use that same battery platform for both.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.

I just want to get some technical terms accurate with you first. This is a snowTHROWER, not a snowBLOWER. The difference is snowBLOWER is a 2-stage machinery that throws and breaks ice. This is a snowTHROWER so it's a single-stage and only spits out the snow. So, if you're the type of person who lets the snow freeze/ice up, I don't recommend any electric snowthrower as there is no such thing as a electric snowblower.

I own Greenworks Pro 80V snowthrower 23", hedge trimmer, grass trimmer and lawn mower. Battery powered technology (like Tesla) are now very reliable.

How do they perform under cold weather? Very good. Your battery should be fully charged at home and once you run the snowthrower, it'll get warm so no issues with battery not running...
It handles the heavy snow because it's an 80V battery. This thread is selling the 40V battery-powered snowthrower. It won't be as "strong" (spitting out the snow) as well as the 80V one. In case you have difficulty understanding this, here's an analogy to help you better understand: a 1000 Horsepower car (equivalent to Voltage in my comparison) will accelerate and drive much faster than a Honda Civic (100 hp). I hope this helps you understand the concept of voltage (80V vs 40V).

If you own Greenworks Pro batteries, make sure they're the 40V one if you plan on buying THIS one (snowthrower 40V). For example, my 80V battery won't fit or power this 40V one...

Cheers!

The blade looks plastic. Can plastic blades do the job?

Thanks for the clarification. I'm aware of the difference between 80 and 40 and lack of compatibility between the two, just wasn't sure if either of them would be up to the task in cold weather. My existing lawnmower is the 80V one, so the batteries should be cross compatible to the 80V one I see on the greenworks tools website...

Not sure if Rona can beat 10%, but most orders from Greenworks charge 5% tax only.

Yes it will be cross compatible. Just to be sure, you can check the specification sheet on greenworkstools.ca website.

Do you have a link to the 80V 23" snowblower? I can only find the 22". Thanks
