It’s always tough making a major purchase decision, and a snow blower definitely qualifies. It doesn’t make the situation any easier when you discover all of the different options available to you, but with a little patience and sound reasoning you’re bound to make the right decision. On this site we break down your choices for you, using comprehensive and straightforward reviews. You’re still going to have to make the final decision, but at least it will be an informed one based on all of the information available to you.
You’ll find there are basically two types of articles on this site – reviews and information articles. Feel free to hop around and use the pages here as you see fit. You certainly don’t have to look at them in any particular order, as all the articles here are individually contained. If you want to dive right into the reviews to find out our take on each machine, go right ahead. You may also want to take a look at our detailed information articles, which outline different features you may find on snow blowers in order to help make your buying decision easier. If you’re like me, you likely believe that a big advantage of the information superhighway is that what you choose to read is entirely up to you – the choice is yours.
Reviewing the Reviews
Before we jump right in to the articles I just want to give you a quick overview of what you can expect in each review. You’ll find each review has some common themes, and I’ve included these themes because they help to differentiate the different power snow removal options available to you. Some subjects that you’ll see consistently touched upon throughout our reviews are how wide of a path each machine clears, how much snow it can actually handle depth-wise, whether it’s electric or gas-powered, and its average price point. There are certainly other things to consider, and we do touch upon them from time to time in each review, but these are the main themes that you’ll find discussed in each review.
In our information articles I look at some individual characteristics of each machine and how they might affect your purchasing decision. I tried to keep these as straightforward as possible; I know from personal experience there’s nothing I hate more than looking for a good information article and then finding it’s full of technical language that makes it difficult to understand. These articles are designed to help you, not hinder you.
Now, I could take the easy way out and leave you with just the reviews to explore without sticking my neck out and telling you my favorites, but I think that would be a bit of a cop-out. That’s why I decided to put together a sort of “best of” list which includes my personal picks for which machines should be considered the best choices in their category. These aren’t necessarily the most expensive models – they’re just the machines that I believe offer the best value for the money.
