How did the 24" SHO's Perform?

Mine did well. I took a full cut on snow that was taller than the blower and it bogged down a little. Slow and easy does it. When I did narrower cuts, it performed extremely well blowing the fluffy snow a good 20' or more. Its a winner in my book.

I noticed the gap between the impeller and the housing is pretty big on mine. When it is out of warranty, I will put an impeller kit on it. Until then, this sucker is staying as it came to me.

Thanks to everyone who helped me decide on this one. I was beginning to think I shouldn't have bought it since there was no snow for weeks after my purchase.

Default How did the 24" SHO's Perform?

I have to say my 2 foot SHO is performing flawlessly !
Not a single piece of the gravel it is holding down in my garage has floated away yet !!! In fact it is so intimidating that none of the stones in the whole garage have moved .
