Powered by a 120V 60 hz 12 amp electric motor, the 20 inch Greenworks thrower packs plenty of punch for clearing snow on the hard surfaces and paths around your property.

It has rubber covered auger blades that cut down deep into the snow enabling the machine to shift the snow efficiently from the ground surface.

Is it easy to use?

Well, for a start it weighs only 37 pounds and has 8 inch wheels to take the weight, so it can be pulled into position quite easily by most people and, once opearating, it can roll forward smoothly through the snow.

Snow can be discharged up to 20 feet away and the height of the snow stream is easily regulated by raising or lowering the discharge chute deflector.

On top of that, the fact that the discharge chute rotates 180 degrees means that you can easily ensure that you’re not throwing snow right back where you just came from.

The main grip handle is covered with comfortable rubber and has three height adjustment settings so that you can set it at a comfortable and safe height to suit you.

Does it have any safety features?

Yes. There’s a specical safety lever that needs to be pulled into position and held against the upper handle as you work so as to keep the motor running. If you let go of the lever, the snow thrower stops.

It has a cord lock to hold your extension lead out of the way and also an overload protection switch which will cut out in the event of any short circuits.

In addtion, the user manual contains comprehensive safety and usage instructions which, if followed, should ensure that you experience with the Greenworks 20 inch snow thrower is a safe one.

Does it need to be assembly?

Yes some assembly of the discharge chute and associated controls is required but the assembly instructions arer clear and comprehensive.

Most people can get their snow thrower up and ready to go in 15 to 30 minutes.

Is it worth buying?

Yes. This is a good value, good quality machine. As long as you are satisfied that an electric snow thrower is suitable for your requirements (rather than a more powerful and more versatile gas powered one), then this will be a good buy. It’s cheaper than the Toro 1800 Power Curve but then the Toro has a more powerful motor.

Check the current price below, but it’s safe to say that this is a good quality, good value machine backed by what appears to be an exceptionally good 4 year manufacturer’s warranty.
