What is this snow thrower best for?

Like all John Deere products, this machine is designed for demanding use. Its heavy-duty build is made to withstand the elements common to winter weather, and it is engineered to stand up to the toughest challenges offered by Mother Nature.

The 827E is best suited for medium to large size driveways with its 27 inch clearing width and 21 inch clearing depth. The unit is able to handle some of the biggest snowfalls and it is powerful enough to cut through the hard packed icy snow. Its cast iron gear case, rugged tires and open chute to prevent clogging all help it match the worst conditions.

How is this snow thrower powered?

A tough and dependable 250cc Briggs and Stratton engine, generating 11.5 foot-pounds of gross torque, is responsible for all aspects of the 827E’s operation. A lo-tone muffler is fitted to help reduce noise.

The friction disc transmission gives you the opportunity to choose from among 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds.

The snow removal aspects of this unit are handled by the notched steel auger, which breaks snow down and takes it into the machine, and the impeller, which is responsible for sucking the snow into the chute and throwing in the direction you want it to go, as far as 35 feet away.

How easy is it to use?

The John Deere 827E includes numerous features designed to make it easy to operate. Chief among them might be John Deere’s Easy Steer drive system, which makes turning and maneuvering simple and effortless. This unit also includes electric start (with electrical cord included) so you do not have to pull on a recoil cord to get the engine going.

Additionally, the 827E allows for single-hand operation. This means that you can always have a hand free to make adjustments on the fly to your speed, the chute or deflector. The deluxe control console has been designed to make the job of using this snow thrower easy and intuitive.

The chute, which is engineered to never clog, is adjustable remotely from the control panel, as is the deflector.

This Deere also comes with a brilliantly bright halogen headlight, making low-light operation possible. Drift cutters are not included, but they are available separately.

What safety features does it have?

As well as an auto shut-off mechanism which shuts the machine off whenever a user’s hands are removed from the controls, this model has 16 inch x 4.8 inch X-Trac tires made for gripping in icy conditions. It also has an easily accessible fuel shut off on the engine.

Is it worth buying?

Snow throwers are machines that sit most of the time, but when you need to use one, you need to know that it will start up and help you get your work done in a timely fashion.

The John Deere 827E dual-stage snowthrower is a machine that you can depend on year after year. The retail price is reasonable at approximately $1,100, and the machine includes many features that make it a premium snow thrower. If you are interested in buying one, visit your local John Deere dealer today.

Please note, after 2012 onwards John Deere won’t be selling its walk-behind snow blowers and snow throwers any more. But service and support for all units will continue through their dealership network.

If, this puts you off the John Deere range, Snapper or Ariens snow blowers are good alternatives.
