Single-Stage Snow throwers are an affordable and easy-to-use method to clearing snow from your driveway and sidewalk. Built to be light-weight and easy to maneuver, this style blower is designed to handle small to medium sized paved areas with winding sidewalks. Their rubber paddle and/or auger design makes single stage snowthrower ideal for regions that rarely get more than 1 ft of snowfall at a time. A single stage performs best in light weight snow but is also efficient in handling wet heavy snowfalls.
Two-Stage snowblowers are a cost-effective and efficient method of clearing large amounts of snow from paved or gravel surfaces. Two stage snow throwers are built to be durable. They perform well on any surface and in any weather condition and are the only blowers designed to clear gravel drives.
Two-Stage snowthrowers are ideal for the homeowner or professional dealing with a lot area to clear and/or large snowfalls and drifts at a time. The Two Stage design allows the metal auger to first break down the heavy packed snow while the second stage is spinning at higher speeds to throw the snow.
