Snow Joe SJ622E Snow Blower Review

Choosing the right snow blower out of a blizzard of options is a difficult occupation. That's especially true in the mid range area where balancing price against characteristics is really tricky. The Snow Joe SJ622E may just solve that predicament to get a many prospective buyers.

The SJ622E, like the similar SJ623E, is an electrical model. No gasoline blowers to be concerned about, you simply plug it in. That brings pros and cons with it, obviously. And at times the pro is a con (and vice versa) depending on your own circumstances.

Almost all electrical models are lightweight. The SJ622E tips the scales at a very modest 32 pounds (14.4 kg). The snow joe SJ623E is only two pounds heftier - 34 lbs/15.4 kg - the consequence of including a halogen lamp system.

That makes it a great unit for some women and young teenagers who might struggle using a heftier unit. But it does restrict just what this Snow Joe model can be expected to do. Unlike those enormous gas-powered units, it will not cut through thick layers of ice or deep layers of packed slush.

Clearing Width and Throw Distance

Nevertheless, the SJ622E does a very good job of getting all but the most challenging-to-move stuff off your driveway and sidewalks. It might remove a swath around 18 inches wide and 10 inches deep. Those aren't just theoretical amounts in the producer. Real use shows it lives up to the charge.

It might discard that snow around 30 feet, though 10-15 feet is more likely when it's slushy. The larger figure is for the mid-wetness-level items. Pure powder can not go very far due to air resistance and sopping slush is too substantial for the SJ622E to chuck that far.

However, even the lower figure is normally enough. At 720 pounds of snow per minute you'll be able to clear quite a enormous space in short order.
