Snow Blowers

Snow Blowers Vs. Snow Throwers

When winter weather gets tough, the purchase of a snow blower or snow thrower will definitely make life easier.

Snow Throwers: are usually single-stage meaning they break the snow up and throw it directly through the chute located on the top. Snow throwers are ideal for paved areas and light snowfall. Because the blades that break-up the snow make direct contact with the ground, it is not recommended to purchase a snow thrower for unpaved areas.

Snow Blowers: are the king of snow clean-up. Although heavier, snow blowers utilize a two-stage technique to clear away the snow. The first stage is an auger that picks-up the snow then the second stage is a fan that sucks the snow out of the auger at greater force compared to a snow thrower. Snow blowers are recommended for large piles of snow that are heavier and/or wetter. Because the auger or blades do not touch the ground, a two-stage snow blower can be used on unpaved areas.
