Snow blowers provide a quicker and easier alternative to shoveling, and can be a huge asset in any area where it snows. Snow blowers are typically separated into three categories, single-stage electric, single-stage gas, and two-stage gas. Single-stage blowers are lighter and easier to handle than two-stage models. These are best for clearing mid-sized areas with a snowfall of 8 inches or less. Two-stage blowers are gas models capable of handling snowfalls in excess of eight inches and are best for clearing large areas. Electric blowers start with a push of a button and don't require as much maintenance as gas blowers. Furthermore, they are typically lighter and more compact than their gas counterparts but they do require a suitable extension cord to operate. On the other hand gas blowers are more versatile and also have greater available clearing widths and intake heights. Whichever of these choices you opt for ATGStores.com has a selection of mowers to choose from, so you’re sure to find a snow blower that suits your needs.
