Greenworks 2600502 20-Inch 13 Amp Corded Snow Thrower Review


Greenworks 2600502 is a corded snow blower with 13 Amp motor. It has clearing width 20 inches and of intake height of 10”.


Performance

When it comes to light snow Greenworks 2600502 performs very well with up to 8 inches of it. Anything more than that and it starts to struggle – it still can do the job but

When it comes to wet or heavy snow things get complicated. Depending how bad it’s it either does the job or gets clogged non-stop.

It doesn’t really throw snow 20 feet far, more like few feet depending on type of snow.

Greenworks 2600502 isn’t comparable to gas powered snow blowers performance wise, but for light duty jobs it performs well enough.


Quality

As expected at this pricing the quality isn’t great. It’s not terribly but you do wonder how long this thing will last? It’s hard to predict – it might last for just 1 season or just as well for many years to come. If you don’t abuse it you will probably be able to use it for at least couple of years but don’t expect it to be a heavy duty unit or anything like that.

The whole unit is pretty much made of plastic including auger and chute – material that isn’t particularly sturdy in freezing temperatures but doesn’t seem to be too fragile in this case.


Maneuverability

Greenworks 2600502 isn’t self propelled but since it’s lightweight it’s easy to move in light snow. In a heavier snow it is a bit harder to push but nothing that would be too fatiguing for a reasonably healthy person.

However at times it lacks grip/traction because the 8-inch wheels are made of plastic and don’t have aggressive tread. You also have to work around the cord which takes time to get used to.


Features

Chute is easily adjustable in 180 degrees. It has LED headlights that as very helpful in darkness/low light. Greenworks 2600502 can be folded quite compactly for storage.

It doesn’t come with a cord so you will need to purchase one that fits the amperage of this unit (necessary extension cord gauge depends on length of the cord).


Conclusions

Greenworks 2600502 doesn’t perform as well as gas powered units but it’s simpler to use than them. For light snow this machine beats shoveling by a mile but for serious cleaning jobs you will probably want a more serious machine.
