Single-Stage Buyer's Guide

Single-stage snow blowers are a lot like Goldilocks. They’re not too big and not too small.

These gas-powered snow blowers are built for suburban-style properties receiving frequent snow falls less than 8-10 inches.

Single-stage snow blowers can clear a typical sidewalk in two quick passes.

The auger on a single-stage snowblower is made out of plastic or hard rubber and makes direct contact with the surface. Unlike their two stage cousins, single-stage snow throwers clear the entire surface area. As a result, drifting snow - especially on a blacktop surface - quickly melts away in the sun.

Entry-LevelEntry-Level
Entry-level single-stage snow blowers are great for people who have smaller driveways or only find themselves needing one on a rare occasion.

They're less costly, have lighter engines, and generally have just the basic features. If you only get light snow a couple of times a year, this may be the right choice for you.

Mid-GradeMid-Grade
If you don’t mind manually cranking the chute and struggling against the mountain at the end of your driveway, an inexpensive entry-level snow blower will service you well.

A mid-grade snow blower, however, will make the experience much easier. They feature more powerful – hence, more expensive engines – and quick chute levers, helping you plow through snow-covered driveways and sidewalks much faster.

Professional
ProfessionalProfessional single-stage snow blowers feature rugged, yet lightweight frames designed to be manhandled into the back of a pickup truck. You’ll often see landscaping crews clearing sidewalks with them after plowing parking lots.

Commercial grade components aren’t an accessory. They’re a necessity. These contractor quality snow throwers feature extended life paddles and heavy-duty drive belts designed to clear dozens of properties in a single day.
