The Snow Joe Ultra SJ623E is designed for heavy use, and it can take a beating. One of the highlights of this model is its 15 amp motor. One of the largest motors in its class, it enables the users to move a large amount of snow in a short amount of time. This particular snow thrower will throw up to 720 pounds of snow per minute up to 25 feet away from the point of use.
For all of the power it offers, this model was created with convenience in mind. It features a push-button start, which eliminates the need to wrestle with recoil starter cords or pull chains. It is also equipped with a 20-watt halogen light. Because you never know when an unexpected snow storm will hit, this is a handy feature to have. The headlight enables you to clear snow – even late at night or early in the morning. Also included in the purchase of the SJ623E is a chute cleanout tool that can be used in the unlikely event that the chute clogs.
Even though it offers a great amount of power, this Snow Joe model has a compact, ergonomic design that requires a minimal amount of space to store. Its dimensions measure only 45 x 19 x 38 inches. Its relatively small size also makes it an ideal option for maneuvering around tight spaces and corners. However, this unit does weigh in at 34 pounds, which may make it difficult for smaller individuals to maneuver.
The primary downside to the Snow Joe Ultra SJ623E is that its snow chute is made of plastic, instead of the standard metal. It does offer a convenient 180-degree turning radius, and the lightweight plastic it is made from allows it to be manipulated without much effort, but it also affects the component’s overall durability. A small number of reviewers have had rocks and other debris scratch or crack the throwing chute. However, the fact that this unit is covered by a two warranty from the manufacturer should also be taken into account when weighing the pros and cons of buying it.
