i'm from North Carolina (high of 70 on Friday), so please enlighten me - what's the difference between a snow blower and a "snow thrower"?

Kind of hard to push if you're not strong, especially if there is a lot of snow. But it does throw lots of snow quickly. It's noisy but who cares when it's snowing hard. As a bonus, this puts out some pretty good vibrations. When I didn't have a boyfriend, I sometimes turned it on just so that I can rub against it. And if I'm really having a dry spell, I'd sit on it and let it vibrate me to The Promised Land. So for me, it's a year round appliance. Get it Lonely Ladies and you may ask yourself why you even bother with men. I'm talking about shoveling snow, of course.

I'm a bit north of you in NJ where we had a high today of 51. A tip...don't get use to it, as it's about to change.

Regarding your question about snow blower/snow thrower. They're both the same, it's just what people tend to call them. By the way, an electric would be perfect for you in North Carolina. I have one about the same size as this one which I purchased from Woot late last year. Light weight, easy to start, as you just push a button and very easy to use. I love it and so do others who own electrics.

I think I read on one of the Specs, does this snow thrower need to be plugged in with a cord while operating or is it cordless?

I would have boughten a much smaller unit today if traffic didn't cause me to miss the store closing time. I guess I got lucky.

This seemed like a good deal until I searched for what else is out there. For $8 more I can get 2.5x the clearing depth and an extra 4" of width (and a much stronger motor).

I ended up going with the Snow Joe SJM988 18-Inch 13.5 Amp Electric Snow Thrower With Headlight for $132 w/ free 2-day shipping. 4.4 stars out of 5 w/ 189 reviews on Woot's parent site.

It needs to be plugged in. Make sure to use a heavy gauge extension cord that matches your AMP draw and distance needed.

I wish I had known this last month. I would have bought this instead of the sump pump for Valentine's Day. She hasn't said anything but I don't think she was too happy with the sump pump.

At 11 amps (similar to many upright vacuum cleaners), it needs to be plugged in. A battery wouldn't last too long and would take too long to recharge. Not good for blizzards where you'll use this several times a day. Make sure you use a WEATHER-PROOF extension cord that can handle 11 amps (12-14 gauge is probably good). Indoor cords aren't made to handle moisture so don't use them,

These lightweight electric models don't need big wheels. In fact, my Toro 1800 works best if you don't have the wheels touching the pavement. If a wheel broke, I wouldn't replace it.

These light weight electric models take longer to clear a path than a big heavy gas model, but they can handle very deep snow. You just lift them up and sweep them over the snow taking a few passes to get it done. Still much easier than shoveling. At 32 lbs, this unit is a bit on the heavy side. My Toro 18inch model is only 24 pounds.

Oh, so you think your state is immune to snow?

Some other states thought so too, until recently...

Generally, people say "snow THROWER" to mean a single stage where the snow is thrown up into the chute by the paddles. A snow BLOWER is usually meant to be at least 2 stage, where augers break up the snow and pull it into the rear of the housing, where a high speed impeller throws it up through the chute. At least that is my understanding.

Au Contraire, the Snow Joe folks produce a battery operated model. Runs for 1+ hour on a charge and takes about 2 hours to charge up. Does a dang good job for a small thrower with the mind-numbing convenience of an electric, without the stupid cord which in my warped world, in the winter would be sorta crazy in addition to bad form and huge pain in the badonkadonk.

There is no such thing as a snow blower, they are all snow throwers, its a misnomer that is widely used.

Well guess what, I live in Michigan and the weather changed from sunny to snowing in the past 5 minutes. 2 days ago it was sunny and yet there was snow falling. This little tiny POS on woot will logbook its own pants if I took it outside lol. MTD is a good company and their snow-blowers are very reliable. I have a dual stage gas blower with forward assist, metal blades and all the sexiness you can get. it never fails to turn on with the third pull even when it was -37 degrees here. And believe me, plug in blowers are NOT ok when clearing snow. Another thing, these snow blowers cannot move wet snow and their plastic blades breaks down alot easier than metal blades. And they do not throw the snow too far. I have about 28" of snow outside my house on my front lawn and about to get 8" more, you can only imagine it will be a good hiding spot for this blower from all the wind lol.
I understand gas ones is a little bit expensive but its totally worth the money. And changing tires are extremely easy. Takes about 5 minutes maybe. there's only 2 bolts to open and thats about it.

"Push-button start eliminates pull starting"

Kinda redundant considering it's an electric snow thrower, isn't it?

I see your thrower and raise you a sleigh:

http://m.homedepot.com/p/True-Temper-Ergo-24-in-Snow-Sleigh-1600900/202054894/

Pros: Quieter, easier on the back, cheaper, stores more easily, probably just as fast, and much more environmentally friendly! Plus you get a good cardio workout, which is sometimes hard to get when you're snowed in.

Cons: it doesn't vibrate :|

Not sure what model you're referring to but the only battery-operated model currectly active on their site doesn't match the specs you state. The site states that it only runs for 40 mins and takes 2.5-3 hrs to charge. But most importantly, there' no indication that it' an 11 amp motor. Do you have a link for your model that uses an 11 amp motor?
