Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V Snow Thrower (Review)
Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V is a battery powered snow blower with clearing width of 20 inches and intake height of 10. Greenworks is a very popular choice when it comes to electric blowers, mowers, string trimmers, hedge trimmers etc., so how well does their snow blower perform?
Just as expected Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V snow blower isn’t as powerful as gas snow blowers – so if you are looking for electric snow blower that’s about as powerful as regular gas one then this is not it.
Greenworks 2601302 clears 6-8 inches of regular, dry snow well and throws it about 15 feet. More than that and it might start to struggle. If the snow is dense and heavy you might have to push snow blower slower – if it start to bog down take it easy.
It performs less well with wet snow as it’s prone to clogging and throw distance is greatly reduced (approximately ~5 feet but depends on multiple factors). Handles 2-3 inches of wet snow acceptably well as long as it doesn’t start to clog but anything more than 3 inches and it might struggle heavily.
Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V snow blower isn’t suited for every situation. While it might be adequate for light duty jobs it’s not powerful enough to deal with medium to hard jobs.
When it comes to longevity consumer feedback varies greatly. There are reports about Greenworks 2601302 breaking after just few uses as well reports about it lasting for years without any issues. It’s hard to determine accurate failure rate as people who have had bad experience are more likely to leave feedback than those who have had a positive one.
With that being said it probably isn’t the most reliable unit but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t last for years in most cases.
Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V snow thrower weighs just 33.5 pounds without a battery so it’s easy to maneuver and even pick up.
Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V snow thrower has built-in LED light that helps tremendously in dark time. Chute rotates 180 degrees. Motor is brushless.
Greenworks 2601302 Pro 80V snow blower for the most part is effective only for light duty jobs so whether you will think that this is a good snow blower or a bad one depends on how you will use it.
If you want electric snow blower that performs better there are some alternatives available:
- Snow Joe SJ627E – It’s a corded snow blower so you will have to deal with cord (which you have to purchase separately) but it’s significantly more powerful than Greenworks 2601302
- Snow Joe iON100V-21SB – It’s battery powered and performs heaps better than Greenworks 2601302 but is also way more expensive.
