@dangeruss snow throwers ~ dust busters, snow blowers ~ vacuum cleaners
If one doesn’t get a lot of snow and has a smaller area to clear then a thrower is good.
I had another 2" to clear today and I used a shovel. A thrower would have been helpful but I’d need 75’ of extension cord to reach the end of the driveway.
I use snow blower when the snow is heavy or deep or when the city has plowed in the end of my driveway.
I can have 4" on the driveway but 10" at the end thanks to the plows. Typically its when I’m already running late for work.
Compare these two popular snow removal machines—snow blower vs. snow thrower—to pick the one that’s best to help you breeze through a winter chore.
