Comments:

While the ION18S will never match the power of the larger, gas-powered snow throwers, it excels at clearing moderate to large areas of medium-fine snow, especially on flat pavment or decks.
The snow throwing distance will be shorter and overall performance lower for this snow blower in heavy, slushy snow. This is a limitation to cordless snow blowers in general, not the ION18S in particular.
