Choosing the right snow blower

Snow Blowers

When it comes to choosing between shovelling by hand or using a snow blower to clear snow, Kingspoint Small Engine in Brampton thinks it’s a pretty easy decision, since snow blowers will clear the snow much more efficiently and without causing you any back strain. However, you want to make sure you’re getting the right snow blower for your needs.

Single-stage snow blowers are perfect for small snow removal jobs like clearing sidewalks, walkways and short driveways right down to the pavement. Their design uses a single high-speed rotor to both scoop up the snow and discharge it out of the chute in one motion. They are light, compact and easy to manoeuvre, and work well for light to moderate snowfalls.

The two-stage snow blower is the most popular design, and performs snow removal in two separate stages. One or more augers collect the snow and then transfer it into the impeller, which blows the snow out the discharge chute. This more powerful machine can chew up snow and ice and works well on any surface, including gravel driveways, as it doesn’t clean as close to the ground as a single-stage snow blower.

Similar to a two-stage snow blower, the three-stage snow blower has a third high-speed auger designed to clear a large amount of snow as quickly as possible, making it ideal for big snow removal jobs.

Kingspoint carries a good selection of snow blower brands, and the qualified small engine repair technicians can service industry-leading makes like Toro® and Briggs & Stratton®.
