John Deere 522E Snowblower

The John Deere 522E 22 inch snowblower is the smallest single stage snow thrower available from JD. This snow blower is powered by a 4 stroke Briggs and Stratton gasoline engine that gives the JD 522E 5.25 ft-lbs of of gross torque power, which makes tackling driveways and parking areas with small to medium heights of snow very easy. However anything above about 20 inches is going to give the John Deere 522E snow blower trouble and you may require a more powerful model.

Thankfully the 522E comes with a push button start so you will never find yourself fumbling with a pull cord in cold weather. Everything about this snow thrower is designed to be compact, the handlebars are foldable to that you can quickly get the blower stowed away.

The deflector chute on the machine is manually operated and can be rotated up to 190 degrees. The 522E does not come with rubber inflatable tires as standard, but instead has 7″ polyurethane plastic wheels. If you are not satisfied with the size of this snowblower, it’s advisable that you seek out a bigger model, such as the John Deere 726E or the John Deere 827E.

    I wouldn’t buy it again.. Wear seems to be super fast on the runners.. I think this is a $450 snow blower rebadged to sell under the Deere name for twice the amount and half the performance!

    Year of Manufacture: 2011
    Pros: Great for smaller snowfalls..
    Cons: Biggest issue is the hand crank chute rotator.. Hands down I would return this product tomorrow if I could. I turn to 95 degrees (right) and withing 5-10 feets the chute is rotated back to center.. readjust.. Back to center. If I was short, it wouldn’t be a big deal to lean over and hold on to the chute rotator crank and walk with it, but for a $700 snow blower, this is a huge problem..
    Modifications: I’m considering an electric motor (with stand alone battery) that will control the chute angle. I’d put two switches on the handle.. right switch will rotate the chute tothe right and left to the left. the electirc motor would also hold the chute from rotating back to center.
