Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 snow blower is a higher end unit for home use which reflects in the price tag. So is it worth the money?
Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 has 357cc overhead valve engine. It has clearing width of 30 inches and intake height of 21. Tires are 16″ x 6.5″ making them wider than most other snow blowers in its class. They have decent grip but a set of tire chains in some cases might be a world of difference.
Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 is very powerful and performs great. It can handle over feet of any kind of snow with ease whether it’s light or heavy, wet or dry, thick or thin. If you live in area that tends to have heavy snowfalls then this snow blower won’t disappoint you, for areas with small amounts of snow it’s a bit of an overkill.
Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 has 6 forward speeds and 2 backwards. You will probably find yourself using speeds 2 and 3 most of the time.
You can do pull start or electric start – both work flawlessly and it starts easily without issues. It also has power steering which works well.
Update: It seems like current Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 units have manual chute controls. Chute is controlled with remote crank and deflector with remote lever.
Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 has heated grips which work very well even with gloves on and is a very welcome feature on those especially cold days.
It has built-in headlight that’s bright however it is on all the time when the snow thrower is running and cannot be turned off.
It has dipstick so you can check oil level and rear oil drain that sticks out and is easy to access.
Other features include throttle with “off” position, primer bulb, removable safety switch, reflective strips and reversible skid shoe.
All gas snow blowers produce some noise so perhaps you can’t call any of them quiet but what matters is how loud they are relatively to other models. Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 is noticeably quieter than most other snow blowers in its class and there aren’t many models that are quieter than it.
Troy-Bilt Storm 3090 is a great snow blower that despite being expensive offers good value for money, however for some consumers it will be more than necessary.
