Summary:
troy bilt makes a horrible machine. the guy at the repair shop said they use a MTD engine, which is a completely worthless piece of metal. I'd never recommend troy bilt to anyone, even enemies. Any machine that has problems starting, attempting normal functions, and is just a continued annoyance, should not be on the market.

Strengths:
This snow blower is good for taking up space in my garage.

Weaknesses:
- clogs with less than an inch of snow - "fuel injection" is horrible, always have to run it on choke (i'm not a small engine specialist, but, my mower, edger, trimmer, blower, and every other gas powered machine i own, all start up immediately. meaning, i take good care of my machines, and this snow blower has a horrible engine.) - manual start cord ripped out on third time using it. - i end up shoveling my driveway most times i've tried to use this machine. - basically, in three years that i've owned this machine, i have had three or four successful days of using the machine. This was because the snow was perfect.

I probably would never buy another.

Strengths:
Electric start works great. Doesn't take up much room in garage.

Weaknesses:
Shoot clogs very, very easily especially if it is not pointing straight in front of the machine. Does not work well on snow that is a little wet or deep.

Summary:
Nice if someone gives you one, but something tells me there are better models out there.

Strengths:
Electric start works great. Starts manually when cold pretty well.

Weaknesses:
If snow is more than 4" or least bit damp, then one has to shoot the snow directly in front as you go along at a VERY SLOW PACE or will clog. Mind you, after five years use the auger rusted where those things that hold the curved flexible blades attach to the side. I now need a new auger assembly which will run me about $70 before shipping charges.

Summary:
The good features it does have don't matter if it can't clear snow. Shop for a different brand not made by Troy Bilt.

Strengths:
Has electric start, motor runs good & starts good.

Weaknesses:
Throws snow 2 feet which is bad for my driveway that is over 3 full size or 4 small cars wide, and 90 feet long. It can actually snow very far but you have to get a running start and hit the snow with a lot of speed, which will actually throw it far for less than 2 seconds or wear cleats and push with much more might than I can muster. I've shoveled the whole driveway many many times, I am 6' and 200#, there's no shortage of strength here. The unit has less than an hour run time on it. It seems the governor was never adjusted at the factory. It recommends to not adjust the governor for fear of overspeeding the engine. The unit is useless in it's current state, it's easier just to shovel the driveway for me than to push around this boat anchor. Don't waste your money on this Troy-Bilt garbage.

Summary:
Would never buy another one. Gave two as gifts before knowing how it performed and now I thoroughly regret it.

Strengths:
Easy electric start. Stores easily.

Weaknesses:
Clogs to easily in only 3" of wet snow. Impossible to use on anything but a perfectly level surface. If your driveway or walk has an incline ,be careful trying to use this.
