    Do you ever get more than 4" of snow?

    Underpowered battery operated snowblowers get less and less powerful as the batteries age, and new batteries might cost as much as the original price of the whole rig.

    You live in Toledo? I wouldn't waste money on an electric/battery snowblower. I've watched my neighbour struggle with his electric for the last couple years. Seriously he may as well just use a shovel and often does for that extra heavy stuff at the end of the driveway because his snow blower can't budge it.

    I have never lived anywhere that a battery operated snowblower that could only handle 4" of snow would have any practicality at all. For anyone who lives in a snow belt it's about as useless as a fleet of snowmobile Taxi's in San Diego.

    But I'd expect it takes a while to rechange. Depends on how big an area you need to shovel, obviously.


    When I have a decent amount of snow it takes me a good hour-and-a-half. Sigh.
