Now that the first snow has finally arrived in Denver, do you remember where your shovel is? But if you are tired of the physical strain shoveling snow takes on your body, it’s probably the right time to invest in a snow thrower. However, don’t just buy the first snow thrower you see. You need to select the right one for your needs. Take a look at a few tips from ALCC.com on choosing the right snow thrower.
- If your home has a 1 or 2-car garage, driveway, and minimum of walk area to clear, consider a small single-stage thrower.
- If your home has a 2-car garage, wide driveway, and some walks to clear, opt for a medium size snow thrower.
- If your home has a 3-car garage, larger driveway and/or large expanses of walks to clear, you’ll need to consider a two-stage snow thrower.
The difference between a single-stage thrower and a two-stage snow thrower is that the single stage is lighter and easier to maneuver, while the two-stage thrower is more heavy duty, has more power, and multiple speeds.
Do you use a snow thrower? Or do you still prefer the shovel?
