The 44 in. snow blower has the capacity to handle big snow removal jobs. Works well in all snow conditions and is suited for snow removal around recreational parks, industrial parks and other applications where snow must be moved greater distances. Ideal for home and estate owners in heavy snow regions.
After having used John Deere products I think it is time to find something else. This snowthrower died within 2 years. The replacement started falling apart within months. The trigger that release the blower so it can be lowered to the ground is cheap plastic. Replacement with another cheap plastic trigger is $30. My L118 tractor is 4 years old and started rusting out the second year whereas my previous tractor lasted 25 years and had less rust. I am very disappointed in the significant drop in John Deere's quality standards.
The dual stage thrower and the adjustable deflector work well.
