Clearing your driveway with a snow shovel may be a great exercise unless you are forced to do this too frequently. With a snow thrower this is much easier, and here you have a list with best snow blowers for home, all Amazon bestselling items.
With such a thrower you will minimize muscle and back strain, simply start the motor and direct the blower through the snow aiming the blown snow out of your way. Snow blowers are expensive but in the long run owning one is cheaper than hiring a plow. A good snow thrower will last for years, and it may pay itself off even in one winter season.
Snow blowers do not need much maintenance, this is just about periodic oil changes and belt-tightening. But bear in mind that some of them are bulky and take space when stored. The list given here will help you to choose, you can decide already visually which model is for you.
What types of snow blowers exist
You will see single-stage models that are suitable for places with minimal snowfall, perhaps 10 inches or so, and two-stage blowers for more snow. These models have the first stage front auger that feeds snow into the machine and the second stage impeller that blows it out. This type is much heavier and bulky. You might want to choose a model with power steering to assist you in maneuvering such a machine. There are also three-stage blowers with an additional impeller at the front of the mouth to assist with feeding snow into the rear auger.
The first type, the single-stage blowers are less bulky and less expensive, but they are also less powerful. Typically you have a front paddle that throws the snow out. The paddle hits the ground and this is how it propels the blower forward, so you do not need engine-driven wheels. Observe that this also means that you can throw out gravel and any loose rock on your driveway, so watch oit for the cars and windows.
Which size/type to choose
In each of these groups you can have a variety of sizes and it can be difficult to choose. So a blower 24 – 26 inches wide should be good enough for the snowfall of 6 – 12 inches. Those with a width of 28 – 30 inches will be strong enough for 15 inches and more.
In terms of the size of the area which needs to be cleaned from snow, for a two-car driveway which is 80 feet long a thrower with 24 – 26 inches width will be fine. For larger areas you would go for larger machines.
All blowers in the list have some warranties so check what looks best for you, there may be differences, and some sell extended services as well.
There are cordless electric snow blowers on the market as well. Those are quieter than gas blowers and need less maintenance. But just while writing this text I was reading a blog from a friend in Colorado who was writing about the snowstorm and power cuts. In such circumstances you will not have a working snow blower if the electric one is the only you have at home. Note that some of them are bulky items and the best place to store them is a garden shed.
So here is our list with best snow blowers for home, those are all true Amazon bestsellers, so the list is updated daily with new prices and with new models as well. As you realize, many of them are with substantial discounts and most of them are Amazon Prime items.
