Just a few years ago, Snow Joe® took the world by storm with their innovative line of eco-friendly, battery-powered snow blowers. Now they're back in a big way with the iON18SB-HYB. Ideal for clearing snow from sidewalks, mid-sized driveways and walkways, the Snow Joe® iON18SB-HYB is the new addition to the Snow Joe® iON arsenal to provide you with a choice of corded or cord-free operation.
Powered by EcoSharp® technology, Snow Joe's innovative, interchangeable rechargeable lithium-ion battery system, the iON includes a 40V battery to deliver over 50 minutes* of whisper-quiet runtime with zero-carbon emissions for cleaner air. The iON techology lets you switch from single 40-Volt battery operation to corded electric operation for limitless snow-shredding power. This state-of-the-art cordless dynamo is also engineered with a powerful 13.5-amp brushless motor and starts instantly with a simple push of a button.
Equipped with a heavy-duty two-blade rubber auger, the iON plows through up to 500 pounds of snow per minute, clearing a path 18 inches wide by 8 inches deep with each pass. Plus, the scraper bar at the base of the unit lets you clear right to the ground without damaging your deck or pavement. Featuring a 180° adjustable chute to direct the snow stream up to 20 feet away. For nighttime snow removal, the iON comes equipped with an integrated 3W LED headlight for increased nighttime visibility.

Okay so - It's a great snow thrower, for the most part and it does what I wanted it to do and the price was great. However that said, it IS kind of frustrating to assemble it - bad directions, I had to look at the box to make sense of the thing. The most frustrating part was the metal pin that holds the handle for the angler to the machine for the snow vent rotator - I had to use my own wire element in it because. Once you get the pin they included, in, (if you can even) you'll NEVER get it out. So I again decided to use my own wire, because this thing ended up being a lot bigger when assembled - I live in an apartment, I have no garage, I HAVE to be able to get it back in the box during Spring/Summer/Winter which means disassembling it again. I would have probably been better off with a cordless snow shoveler than this thing but once I detach the handle pieces I will be more than able to easily store this thing. It's not that its huge by any means, just larger than I had anticipated. But it works great. Really helps me get my car dug out in the upstate NY snow!
Good price light Weight
At first I wasn't happy with this because I've never used a corded snow thrower. After our first heavy snow fall I've come to appreciate this little machine. It works decent for it's size but I do plan on getting a much bigger machine (without the cord of course) that can handle heavier snow but I'm undecided if I want gas or battery operated. So if you don't want to spend double the money like me, just save up a couple more bucks and get something more powerful without the cord.
Doesn't do corners well but good on the straightaways... I did my 1150sq ft deck in less than 30 min...temp was 10°, wind speed 13 mph out of the north.. cotter pin was a bear: I'm 72, had to use very large screwdriver and hammer. But it did what I wanted it to do, at a very reasonable price, which made me very happy.
Lightweight. Easy to store. A good work horse. With deep snow, tilt to raise up the front of the blower to get to the snow a little at a time so as to not overtax the snow blower. This works well for flattening built up heavy snow banks at the end of my driveway caused from street plows. Definitely recommend this one!
