VERDICT

MTD's basic snow thrower is easy to operate, efficient and anyone can master the controls within minutes.

MTD’s 14-inch snow thrower is a more robust basic snow clearing machine. Featuring an 11-inch electric motor, this device can clear light snow all over the yard with relative ease. The device comes with a built-in chute and an auger assisted drive for no-mess snow clearing whenever. The device has a clearing width of 14 inches and intake height of about 9 and a half inches. MTD’s electric snow thrower also comes with a folding loop handle so it’s easy on the wrist during a snow clearing.

Thanks to its more powerful motor, the MTD electric snow thrower can clear about 5 to 6 inches of snow. Some users say the device is able to handle deeper snow with one claiming it cleared 32 inches of snow. However, the brand markets this for light snow only to prevent motor trouble. We love how easy it is to operate, it’s very user-friendly and anyone can master the controls within minutes.

As for the negatives, most users complain about recurring motor problems. Some say their device won’t start while others claim that their MTD snow thrower’s control box had to be banged to get it to work. We did not come across the same issue and our test device worked perfectly. However, the components do look flimsy so this is something worth noting.
