Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 Review featured imageThe Troy-Bilt Storm 2625

People have lots of good things to say about the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625. We wanted to scrutinize its features and details before putting our stamp of approval on it and recommending it to you.

The Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 is a two-stage snow blower which promises a powerful engine and ample snow removal coverage regarding width and depth of snow. The manufacturers employed patented augers in this machine, which they refer to as Xtreme. This powerful machine boasts of carefree operation.

We found several enthusiastic reviews on the internet. Opinions differed as reviewers related their issues while clearing their type of terrain and their snow conditions with the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625. Before we look at its features, let’s check out the manufacturer.

We began by checking the claim of this Troy-Bilt’s engine power. We saw several user reviews confirming the awesome power of the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625. Since the 243cc engine is mentioned on the company’s website as well as on other sites, many reviewers said that this engine is as powerful as it claims.

We also learned the “Xtreme” 12” serrated augers measured up to the hype.  Customers gushed about their efficiency leading us to believe its augers are one of its best features.

By now we were not surprised to hear what customers said about the clog resistant chute.  Many of them felt this feature set the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 apart from all other comparable snow blowers.

Not being able to get details on the warranty through the internet gave us a slight pause.  In reading reviews, we noticed a few complaints regarding customer service.  It was also noted that the manual could have been more detailed and easier to understand.

By far, we found more pros than cons for this product. We are confident in recommending the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 snow blower as a sturdy, efficient machine.

  • Wide Coverage
    The clearing area of the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 is 26” wide, a significantly wider measurement than any other two stage snow blowers. Its intake height is 21”. This is enough width in deep snow to make any mountain easy to move.
  • Efficient Grip On Terrain
    The Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 sports 15” x 5” airless tires which increase its stability during use. The reversible skid shoes assist with keeping an excellent grip on steep terrain.
  • Powerful Engine
    This snow blower is equipped with a reliable 243cc engine making this dual stage snow removal machine capable of efficiently handling deep packed snow. One MN reviewer stated his snow was hip high and the machine cut right through the snow.
  • Clog Resistant Chute
    Many snow throwers break and collect the snow satisfactorily, but the chute gets clogged, or the snow is not thrown a sufficient distance. The Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 scores here, with its clog resistant polymer chute. Additionally, it has a 200° rotation, so you can easily displace your snow in whatever direction you want.
  • Just One Hand Operation
    The chute has another useful feature. Labeled ‘Just One Hand’ by the manufacturer, the easy-to-use lever allows you to control the direction of the snow using just one hand.
  • Dual Options In Starting
    You can quickly start the 4-cycle OHV engine with the electric start. The machine includes a recoil start option if that is something you are more comfortable with.
  • Convenient Gears
    There are two reverse speeds and six forward speeds for this self-propelled machine. The gear operations are suitable as well.
  • Serrated Auger
    Both the auger and the impeller have a 12” diameter. The patented “Extreme” auger is serrated to provide greater cutting and crushing efficiency of your drifted, packed snow.
  • In-dash headlights
    The Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 has lights that will make your work easier during bad weather or in the darker hours of the day.

Introduction to Troy-Bilt

Troy-Bilt was founded in 1937 at Valley City, Ohio in the USA. Still headquartered there, they have factories, research units or packing units (for spares, etc.) in six other locations in the USA. The snow blowers are manufactured at Willard, Ohio. Formerly a rototiller manufacturer, they have diversified over their eighty-year history and now produce numerous products.

Bottom Line

As we said earlier, we found more pros than cons for the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625. This machine is reviewed as an honest and efficient soldier who can be depended on for doing skilled work. The powerful engine, efficient chute ejection, and patented auger technology are definite highlights.

In spite of its brute power, the Just One Hand feature, the push button electric start and the headlight are things which make it easy to operate. The user reviews we found all reinforced and repeated these views.

We proudly recommend the Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 for your snow blowing needs. An 80-year old company is bound to have produced some mean machines to have successfully survived as a provider of powerhouse products.
