New SJ615E

I purchased a closeout SJ615E bundle at Walmart for keeping my deck clear and finally tried it out on 2" of crisp powder at 5 degrees this morning. Worked so well on the deck that I used it on the walkways, too! Didn't bother with the drive, since there's big snow on the way and I have a new Honda HSS1332ATD to try out on that in a day or so, apparently. The SnowJoe is back on the deck awaiting more action there.

Sounds like you have a good combination ready for action.

Used the SJ615E to clear my deck today... 18" all over with drifts way over that. The lowest snow was higher than the handle on the chute and the deepest was well above the chute. It handled it all easily, with just occasional slowing of the auger speed when I pushed too fast. Truly a great little machine. Left the deck bare to the wood.

If anyone doubts the capability of these small SnowJoe electrics, just finished doing the deck which was covered with bucket-high, solid, wet snow... Aside from a few clogs that were easily addressed, it went very well!

Nice job with the Snowjoe! I know they are not exactly the most macho blowers around, but i have a small electric toro shovel in my fleet and am always on the lookout for something similar to what you have at a good price. Beats the crap out of shoveling!!

This is the one I was looking at but not at Home Depot.
It was cheaper manufacture direct.

Finally after having 3 different models in my hands at Home depot I decided to go with the:

Snow Joe iON Core Tool 40V Cordless 13-inch Brushless Electric Snow Shovel
Model # ION13SS-CT



Kinda my Yammy's kid brother. It's light ( 12 lbs ) with battery. Even my wife might like to use it.

Let us know what you think of it once you've used it... Might be nice to sever the cord! A friend of mine has that other cordless SnowJoe you mentioned and used it happily for the entire driveway until she got married. Her husband bought a big Ariens, so the SnowJoe is just doing porch & deck duty now.

That's all I want it for, the decks and it uses the same battery as the sunjoe 16 inch mower.
