The Snow Joe Ultra SJ625E 21-Inch 15-Amp Electric Snow Thrower comes packed with rather exceptional and favorable features to make clearing the snow, even in a blizzard, fast and efficient.

This model is the latest upgrade of the 600 series, a direct replacement of the highly popular and proven SJ624 Ultra, and comes with improvements to both design and components.

This small and lightweight snow thrower has the power of a gas snow thrower without the fuss of gas and oil tune-ups as it is electric.

It has the added benefit of easy glide all-terrain, compact wheels which makes it extremely easy to move around and maneuver this machine on almost any surface without any damage to the surface. If you want to work on gravel or other loose surface, we still recommend to look for the two-stage snow blowers.

Powered by a strong 15 amp motor, the SJ625E can move up to 800 lbs of snow per minute. It is a notch up from the smaller brother, the Snow Joe SJ621 and a lot stronger than the lightweight Snow Joe iON13SS Cordless Shovel.

Not only comes with the high performance engine but it features a steel auger with two rubber blades, offering a cutting with of 21 inches and clearing depth of 12 inches.

Another noteworthy feature is the adjustable discharge chute that can rotate up to 180 degrees giving you full control over the direction of the snow stream, similarly the chute deflector also allows you to control the height of the snow stream.

With electric power and ETL approval, consequently the Snow Joe is a powerful and easy to use snow blower that can plow through thick-ish and heavy snow in small and medium areas.

After all, according to the manufacturer, it is ideal for clearing snow up to 10 inches.

What did previous Snow Joe Ultra SJ625E buyers say?

Analysing customer reviews for the most part customers cannot stop complimenting on how powerful and effective the Snow Joe is, clearing very heavy snow even through blizzards.

They claim this unit is a real workhorse (source).

One customer mentions that he managed to clean up 30″ of snow with this snowblower, even though with a little help of a traditional shovel knocking down the deeper parts of snow. 

There were some complaints though that the electric cord gets in the way and if you are not careful and it gets under the blades the snow thrower will cut through the cord.

Warranty and Support

You have a full two-year warranty with the purchase of your Snow Joe Ultra SJ625E, and you are also ensured with great customer service and an easy return policy.

Snow Joe is a company that takes pride in the quality and craftsmanship of their products and go out of their way to provide you with the best designs of tools and equipment at the most affordable prices.


We can conclude that the SJ625E could be a great choice for medium and heavy duty use in small to medium size areas. The only limitations there are the power cord and the 12 inch intake height, but other than that, this little snow blower is a real workhorse.

If the SJ625E snow blower looks a bit too much for the size of your yard or driveway, you could consider looking at the Snow Joe 323E Snow Shovel that we have reviewed recently. Weighting much less, means easier handling and due to its size it comes with a smaller storage need.
