Best Snow Blowers 2021
Depending on your needs, here’s what you should consider before purchasing.
- Clearing Width – snow blowers and throwers will have a clearing width ranging 18-inches to 30-inches. Snow throwers and electric snow blowers typically have a narrower clearing width.
- Snow Type – how much snowfall do you expect in a given year? For light snow, an electric snow blower or snow thrower should do the trick. For wet, heavy snow you should consider a gas snow blower – I suggest the Husqvarna or Ariens snow blowers.
- Amount of Snowfall – most electric snow blowers are single stage, but can last up to 50-mins per battery charge. If it takes more than 1-hour to get the job done, consider a two-stage snow blower that is gas powered.
Other features you can take into account include:
noise level, heated handles, snow throw distance, and weight
Today’s options are much lighter and more powerful than only a few years ago. A good snow blower can be a big purchase, but they’re made for durability.
Depending on the model you can expect it to run strong for 5-10 years.
