While we have yet to experience our first big snowfall, I know it's coming! So I want to be prepared! There is nothing worse than waking up one morning to find that your car has disappeared under a mountain of snow. Hopefully, this Review will help you figure out what your needs are and help you make an informed decision!
How do you decide what kind of Snow Blower you need?
Choosing a snowblower is a matter of really assessing your own personal situation. There are 3 basic matters to consider before buying a snow blower.
- The area that needs to be cleared
- How much snow needs to be moved
- Your own terrain. Are you on level ground or do you have hills and valleys to worry about?
If you have a long driveway with lots of snow to be removed, you will need something more powerful than my electric snow shovel. If you live in a snow belt, then you know you will be using the snow blower frequently. These are two of the first considerations to make when deciding to purchase a snowblower. The third consideration is your terrain. Many people forget to take that into consideration. If you need to remove snow from a hilly area, you will need more power and possibly some added traction for the snowblower. If you only have a few inches of snow a year, then stick with a shovel. They are environmentally friendly and give you some exercise at the same time. Snowblowing if you have lots of snow and a long driveway with a hilly terrain, will give you a good work out too.
There are several different types of Snow Blowers let's take a quick look at them here.
