Electric snowblowers are a quieter and more eco-friendly alternative to gas-powered snowblowers.
Electric snowblowers are lighter-weight and easier to store. They're also easier to maintain and less messy.
Whether you need a snow blower to clear a short sidewalk, or a machine to throw deep, 10-inch snow piles from your driveway, electric snowblowers are made in several different ways to meet the needs of various types of homeowners.
|Power Shovel |
Power shovels are really snow sweepers instead of throwers. These lightweight snow moving machines donít have wheels or chutes. Instead, a paddle style auger pushes the snow forward like a broom.
Weighing less than 15 lbs., an power shovel will save your back. However, you'll still get a workout carrying and pushing it around.
A power shovel is ideal for light snow less than 4 inches
deep on sidewalks, decks, and steps. Anything more substantial
would be too much for this small but handy tool.
Want something with a little more power and performance? A
corded snowblower is an eco-friendly alternative to
gas-powered snow blowers.
Unlike power shovels, they feature easy-to-maneuver wheels and a chute to direct the discharged snow.
Plus, corded snowblowers feature more powerful motors, throwing up to 700 pounds of snow per minute. They are capable of handling 6 - 10 inch deep snow.
In terms of overall handling and usability, a corded snowblower
is a better choice than a power shovel.

Like corded snowblowers, cordless models also feature easy-to-maneuver wheels and a discharge chute. However, cordless models can move freely without the use of a cord.
Cordless snowblowers feature a comparable intake height and clearing width; and because they have soft rubber augers, they're safer for decking as well.
