The John Deere 726E, 26 inch wide compact snow blower is is almost twice as powerful as it’s smaller brother, the John Deere 522E snow thrower, with it’s 4 stroke, 0.2 liter Briggs and Stratton Snow Series engine that provides this single stage snowblower with 9 ft-lbs of gross torque power. The 26 inch clearing width is great is you need to tackle light to mid sized falls of snow. However, you may consider using a more powerful model, such as the John Deere 827E snow blower if you find that you are constantly struggling with this model.
Like it’s smaller brother, the John Deere 726E has a push button start which is a relief as you don’t need to worry about hurting your fingers trying to start it with a pull cord. The engine power is routed through a friction disc drive transmission which gives the JD 726e snowblower 6 speeds when moving forward and 2 speeds in reverse.
Snow entering the 26 inch mouth of the 726E is pulverized by the notched flighting on the steel auger, before being shot out of the chute deflector. The chute deflector has a turning radius of 190 degrees, is manually adjusted and can be easily removed. The John Deere 726E snow blower has strong gripping 5 inch wide X Trac tires to help prevent it from slipping during operation. Unfortunately you cannot get this snow blower with the John Deere promise.
