Buyer's Guide: Best Battery Operated Snow Blower

How To Choose A Battery Operated Snow Blower

Snow blowers have become indispensable house tools since the winter season started. Because of this, many people wonder which among these snow machines is the right one for them. In buying a snowblower, it is important to consider factors such as price, performance, and brand. However, there are three kinds of snowblowers available, namely, cordless, battery-operated, and gas-powered. Therefore, what are the main factors to consider before you buy a battery-operated snowblower?

The first thing you should be concerned about is the power source. There are mainly three sources to choose from, namely, batteries, gas, or electricity. For battery-operated snowblowers, a common type is the double-A or triple-A battery pack. This kind of battery has a single charge cycle, which means it can hold a maximum of approximately three hours of run time. This charging cycle is very important because, as a rule, the longer the charge cycle of a battery, the more powerful the snow thrower is.

Second, consider the size of the snow thrower that you would like. For the larger garden tools, such as the backhoe, you might want to consider buying one that has a bigger motor capacity. In contrast, for smaller garden tools, like the lawnmower or the snow shovel, you may want to consider getting one that has a smaller motor capacity. Both sizes of the snowblowers mentioned above can perform well in a range of different scenarios, but when it comes to the bigger equipment, the choice is yours.

Third, consider the cord length. Usually, the longer the cord, the better; because it will enable you to get to the area faster. The longer run time of a corded blower is great for jobs that you want to finish quickly. However, if you intend to work the lawn, you might consider getting a shorter cord to reduce your running time.

Fourth, think about the clearance path of the unit. The clearance path of the brushless motor determines how much space can be covered in less time. There are brushless motors with short clearance paths, meaning they only need a small space to store and use fuel. These units are great for areas where it's difficult to dig to a depth of several feet. However, if your snow clearing job requires bigger space and/or a lot of clearance, you would have to look at other options.

Fifth, think about the size of the clearing path. There are two basic sizes of brushless snow throwers. The first is available in six inches width and up. The second is available in three and a half inches width and up. You may want a slightly wider option if you're doing more than a few sheets of snow at a time, but if you're dealing simply with a few yards of snow, the six-inch option is probably your best bet.

Sixth, consider the chute and brush height of your model. The chute is the height of the blade wheel that spins while the motor is running. The higher the chute, the faster the snowblower will run. On the other hand, the higher the brush height, the farther the blade will travel and the harder it will brush away snow. This factor also affects the overall size of the unit and how much snow it clears.

Lastly, consider the actual length of the cord and how long it will remain plugged into the electrical outlet until the snow is removed. Most cordless snow blower models allow for two charge cycles, although this varies depending on the model. A one charge cycle is typically sufficient for light to moderate amounts of snow. If you need to clear very heavy snow or extremely fast snow, you should consider an electric model that allows for more than one charge cycle.
