How to Choose the Right Snow Blower
When shopping for a new snow blower, consider these important factors:
- The size of the area you'll be clearing
- The weight of the snow
- Access to electrical outlets
Benefits of Electric Snow Blowers
- If you plan to clear smaller spaces like sidewalks and decks, electric snow blowers make a convenient and maneuverable choice.
- They typically weigh less than gas snow blowers and are great for clearing lighter snow.
For particularly narrow spaces like stairways, consider an electric shovel. These helpful winter tools feature a streamlined size and lightweight design, making them perfect for compact areas. With both electric snow blowers and electric shovels, you’ll need access to an outdoor outlet and extension cord, so remember to check your home or garage before purchasing electric models.
Benefits of Gas Snow Blowers
- When you need to tackle larger areas or heavier snow, look for a dependable gas snow blower.
- Gas models deliver even more power than electric snow blowers, making them the ideal choice for dense, icy snow or large areas such as spacious decks and driveways.
Difference Between Single and Two Stage Snow Blowers
Gas snow blowers usually come in two different styles: single stage and double stage. Both types help you efficiently clear your space, but they are different.
The auger on the single stage snow blower breaks up the snow and throws it to the side of the path you're clearing in one motion. Because the auger sometimes touches the ground, this snow thrower is best for dealing with light snowfall on paved surfaces.
Two stage snow blowers use an impeller fan to dispose of snow even farther from your clearing path and are better at managing heavier snowfall.
