|Don't Worry About Size |
Assuming you have a single-car or double-car driveway, you're clearing about 10-20 feet in width.
24-Inch clearing width = 5-10 Passes
36-Inch clearing width = 4-7 Passes
The difference isn't really a big deal, unless your driveway is 200 feet long!
So the larger clearing width may only save you about 10 minutes versus making your snow blowing time much more comfortable and convenient.
|Focus on the Features |
You want to look at features such as power steering, heated hand grips, automatic chute control and larger engines.
Power steering saves you from having to make wide turns in the middle of the street or horse it back-and-forth to change directions.
It provides better handling, so more members of your family are capable of enjoying the benefits of a snow blower.
Heated Hand Grips
For those who feel restricted by wearing gloves, these are an effective way to maintain toasty digits in sub-zero temperatures.
Automatic Chute Control
If you want a step up from a manual chute, there are options such as lever chutes, slide chutes, crank chutes, joystick chutes, and electric chutes.
