Buyers Guide to Snow Blowers & Snow Throwers
Before you rush off to the store, here are some things to make your purchase that much easier.
Working area and snow conditions
When looking to buy a snow blower you should consider the amount of space that you have, and about what the typical snow conditions are like where you live. A snow blower with a powerful engine and a large working width, will save you time and effort if your area is covered in deep, heavy snow. If you live in an area where large falls of snow are unusual, a less powerful snow blower with smaller features will suit you.
Snow blower are very powerful machines, so you should always look carefully for safety labels. They are generally quite loud products, so it’s also a good idea to wear some hearing protection whilst working with one. As winter is a dark season, if you can – make sure your model has headlights.
