Is a 3 stage snow blower worth it?

A best bet for value and performance among three-stage snow blowers in our tests is the Troy-Bilt Vortex 2890, $1,300. Not everyone needs a three-stage snow blower, but if you get a lot of wet, heavy snow or have a large area to clear, you'll want to consider one.

How long do snow blowers last?

If you invest in a machine from the lower price range of things (from manufacturers like Craftsman) you'll be able to expect anywhere from 10 to 15 years of use from the machine. You'll get more use out of an investment in a snow blower from this category, so this would have to be the recommendation that we'd make.

How do I keep my snowblower from clogging?

  1. Use a Non-Stick Spray. Snowblower non-stick spray coats the chute and auger just like a cooking spray, shielding the metal so snow passes through without sticking, clumping, or clogging.
  2. Use a Clean-Out Tool. Some snowblowers now have clean out tools as a standard attachment.
  3. Go Faster.

Is a snow blower worth it?

A snow service would have run me about $500 a season or $6,000 over the same 12 years. So if it takes you 20 hours to deal with snow each winter with a shovel, or 10 hours with a snow blower, how much are those extra 10 hours worth to you? It would cost my neighbor about $57 more per season to use a snow blower.

What should I look for when buying a snowblower?

In addition to matching the snow blower to your terrain and snowfall, consider the advantages of each snow blower type. Single-stage snow blowers are the lightest and easiest to handle. They're best for clearing mid-size areas with a snowfall of 8 inches or less. An auger directs the snow through a discharge chute.

What's the difference between a snow blower and a snow thrower?

The Basic Differences
The short answer is they are not the same. A "snow thrower" refers to a single stage snow removal machine that picks up the snow in one motion and throws it out the chute with the continuation of that movement. A "snow blower" refers to a two stage snow removal machine.
