How To Choose The Right Snow Thrower For The Job

  1. Backyard/ driveway size – Bigger equipment doesn’t always equal to a better job. Electric snow blowers can clear light snow from sidewalks and small driveways. For smaller driveways, single-stage units can do the job. For driveways over 60 feet, choose a two- or three-stage unit.
  2. Surface type – For level surfaces, use auger-assisted, push-propelled models. Engine-driven wheels will work best for sloped terrain. If you need more traction, you can use tire chains with some models.
  3. Snowfall size – Up to 12” – Use an Electric Snow Thrower. 13” – Single-stage, 23.5” – Two-stage, and up to 21” – Three-stage.
  4. Snowfall kind – Single-stage units can handle light snow. To cut through wet, hard snow or ice, go for a two-stage unit. If you need to get the job done in less time, go for a three-stage snow thrower.
  5. Usage – Pick snow blowers that are well designed and easy to handle for an individual, such as this single-stage Honda snow thrower.
