Snow blower FAQs

What are the differences between a single or a two-stage snow blower?

A single stage snow blower scoops up snow with an auger and then discharges it through a chute.

A two stage (a/k/a dual stage) snow blower collects snow with an auger, then a high speed impeller throws the snow out of the chute, resulting in snow that is thrown further away from where it was scooped up.

What kind of snow blower should I get?

That depends upon where you’ll be using it and how much snow you expect to move with it.

  • Single stage electric snow blower
    • Good for a deck or porch – Clears less than four inches of snow
    • Requires use of an outdoor power cord
  • Single stage gas snow blower
    • Works best in snow that is less than eight inches
  • Dual stage (two stage) gas snow blower
    • Works well for medium to heavy snowfall (greater than eight inches)

Note: For best results, use a snow blower in smaller driveways and sidewalks. While a dual stage gas snow blower will do fine in larger areas, it does take much longer to clear than if using a plow

How do I clear a jam in my snow blower?

Use a non-stick polymer coating on the auger, the chute and the deflector to reduce the amount of clogging in your snow blower, which will automatically reduce the number of times your snow blower gets clogged up with ice and/or snow.

When a jam happens – and it does happen – be very careful dislodging it. People have been known to suffer serious injury to their arms and hands, so use a tool such as a small shovel or the end of a broom when clearing out the jam.

Are snow blowers dangerous?

Always use caution when running your snow blower. Use safety eye glasses and make sure that children and pets are inside; the snow clouds that rise up when using your snow blower can impair your ability to see clearly.
