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.
~1975 Canadiana 1026 Heavy Duty w/light & limited slip differential (& custom exhaust (need to fabricate manifold), customized impeller housing, removable chute in about 5 sec) (currently out of service)
~ Craftsman 8/25 Trac-Drive C950-52671 (mid 80's ???) (current user) (replaced blown engine with original, now in service again)
~ Craftsman 12/32 OHV 71-52112-1 (now in service)
~Noma GP 1028EL (repaired and serviced for daughter to use)
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!!
