If you’re looking for a cordless snow blower with a battery that doesn’t take forever to charge, the Greenworks Pro 80 Volt Snow Blower could be the perfect choice for you. The 2 Ah lithium-ion battery has a 45–minute battery life and takes less time to recharge. Have a cup of coffee while the battery charges; within a half an hour you’ll be back outside clearing snow. The rabid charge takes 30 minutes to charge the 2 Ah battery and 60 minutes for a 4 Ah battery.
A push–button start ensures a quick start every time. No cords to pull or hassling with gas or oil. The brushless motor optimizes the battery power ensuring a longer running time. The 80 Volt battery will probably last long enough to clear the snow from the high traffic areas. If not, the rabid charge won’t delay you but if you’re really in a hurry, could purchase a second battery and keep going; charging the one while using the other.
The crank handle controls the direction the 180-degree chute throws the snow. Its discharge distance is 20 feet which throws the show away from the area you’re clearing. The snow blower quietly clears a 20-inch wide path through 10–inches of snow.
Dual LED lights enhances the visibility of the clearing path. Winter days are short; if nighttime is the only time you have available for clearing the paved driveway, then the LED lights and the low noise level of the machine makes it possible. You won’t be waking up neighbors. The onboard battery-life indicator will warn you when the battery power is low so that you’re not caught unawares in the middle of clearing a path.
The Greenworks Pro 2600402 snow thrower is lightweight, weighing 33 pounds which is not heavy to carry or maneuver into the garage for storage. The compact folding of handles doesn’t take up unnecessary space.
Greenworks gives a 4–year warranty which is twice the standard 2 years. The battery and charger have a 2-year warranty.
