Choosing the Right Tool

There are many different types of snow blowers, but which one you select should depend upon the job being done.

You shouldn't use a three-stage snow blower on decking, just like you shouldn't use an electric snow shovel on the pile at the end of your driveway.

By selecting the appropriate tool for your property, you can remove the snow with much more ease and efficiency.

Steps & Decks
Clearing Steps & Decks
When it comes to clearing snow off of your steps and decking, a large gas-powered snow blower isn't exactly ideal. Lugging that heavy piece of machinery up staircases just isn't an option.

Luckily, if you want to get the snow off of your steps, porches, and decking without having to resort to shoveling, there are lighter-weight options such as electric shovels and single stage electric or cordless snow throwers.





Sidewalks
How to Clear Sidewalks
Sidewalks may take a bit more work than steps and decks, but that doesn't mean you need the largest snow blower. Choose your snow blower based on how much sidewalk you plan to clear, and how many passes you wish to make.

Make sure you have the right width, height, and power to get your sidewalks clean without blowing through the entire weekend.





Driveways
How to Clear a Driveway
The driveway is likely the toughest area for homeowners when it comes to snow removal. If you plan to clear a large driveway or the dense and dirty pile at the end of your drive, a smaller model just won't do the trick.

For tough jobs like these, there are much better options to help get the job done with ease. After all, you don't want to miss kickoff because you're stuck snow blowing for too long.
