Mid-Grade Single-Stage Buying Guide

A mid-grade single-stage snowblower offers greater clearing width, larger tires, and a bigger frame.

In some cases, mid-grades offer easier steering, upgraded chute options, and a bigger impeller for faster snow blowing.

We recommend spending a little extra time shopping for the perfect single stage.

Here are a few features that you should consider.

Electric Start Snow Blower
Recoil Start vs Electric Start

Snowblowers with recoil start are similar to lawn mowers in that you have to pull a cord to start them.

If you still have nightmares about pull-starting small engines, then you might want an electric start snowblower.

Snow Blower Chute Rotation
Chute Rotation Options

Chute styles differ quite a bit between entry-level and mid-grade snow blowers.

As you upgrade from entry-level to mid-grade, you find more convenient chute options that make snow blowing a breeze.

2-Cycle Snow Blower
2-Cycle vs. 4-Cycle

The smoke-belching, two-cycle snow blowers from your childhood are as dead as dial-up internet service.

Modern four-cycle snow blowers no longer require mixing the perfect concoction of gas and oil. You simply add gas to the gas tank and oil into the engine just like your lawn mower.
