Plug it in. Power it up.
Suffering from snow blower rage? GO ELECTRIC!
We all enjoy the vision of a blanket of white after a winter storm – but clearing your driveway and sidewalks can be downright aggravating. Whatever angers you most about snow removal, an electric snow blower is likely just the fix for your frustration.
It’s too loud!
Do you find yourself waiting to clear your driveway in the morning because you’re scared to wake the neighbors? Since electric snow blowers don’t have rumbling machinery, your a.m. chore won’t upset the family next door.
I hate the smell!
The scent of exhaust can linger on your coat, scarf and gloves for longer than you’d like, especially if you have somewhere to be right after snow blowing. Electric snow blowers don’t emit exhaust or fumes, which is good for you and good for the environment.
The gas is a pain to store!
You not only have to worry about where and how to store your gaspowered snow blower’s fuel and oil, but you also have to worry about what is sitting unused in the tank. With electric, you simply need an outlet to plug in or charge up.
It’s too bulky!
A lightweight electric blower or snow shovel is a perfect tool for clearing the narrow corners of your deck. Try that with your standard gas-powered machine.
I can’t start the thing!
If you’ve never been a fan of unpredictable pull-cord ignition, an electric snow blower offers a super simple push button start that everyone in the family can use – and it works every time.
Check out your local hardware store to see all of the latest corded and battery-powered options. Models become more powerful every year, with some able to throw now more than 35 feet or at 500 pounds per minute!
