✅ TOP 5: Best Snow Blower 2019

November 25, 2019 27 By Ronny Jaskolski


Shoveling is great exercise. When the snow starts, I always intend to shovel
my way out of each snowfall to stay fit. But after the first few snowstorms, my intermittent
back pain pays a visit, and I give in to the calls of the snow blower. Before we get started on breaking down the
best snow blowers on the market we’ve included links in the description to various pricing
options for the products mentioned so make sure you check those out. Starting off with the best overall snow blower
we have the Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE Gas Snow Blower. There are a few features that make the Toro
SnowMaster 724 QXE Gas Snow Blower stand out. First, it’s not a traditional single- or
two-stage blower. It’s more of a hybrid. It has a single helical auger that moves 10
times faster than your usual two-stage blower. This sends the snow up to 40 feet away. The Personal Pace self-propel system moves
the snow blower at your walking speed. And, a joystick allows you to adjust the chute
direction and angle. The clearing width is 24 inches and the snow
cut depth is 16 inches. Toro sent me this snow blower to test. Unfortunately, my town hasn’t been hit with
a significant snowfall yet, so I haven’t had a chance to test it out. However, I can comment on the shipment and
assembly process. The blower was delivered on a pallet by a
semi-truck. The instructions for setting it up were pretty
simple, and I had it up and running within half an hour of cutting into the box. Stay tuned for my full review once Michigan
gets a few snowstorms. The Toro SnowMaster 724 is The Wirecutter’s
top pick. The reviewer found that it was the fastest
snow blower he had ever used. It beat out several larger and more expensive
models. He also noted that the joystick chute adjustment
was smooth, and the Personal Pace drive system worked as advertised. However, he mentioned that it did have some
hiccups on steep inclines and uneven surfaces. Moving Snow recommends the snow blower for
people with paved driveways up to two cars wide and 150-feet long that live in areas
with regular light snows and the occasional heavy snow. The reviewer notes that the snow blower handles
heavy, wet snow well and can take on deep snow piles. Busted Wallet, SnowBlower, and Snow Blower
Guides also recommend this model. More than 86% of the people who reviewed the
Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE on the Home Depot website gave it four or five stars. The most common comments revolve around how
easy to use the unit is and how it has a good size and weight. Buyers found that the light weight and Personal
Pace function made the snow blower easy to maneuver. One owner raced his neighbor who had a comparable
driveway and a two-stage Ariens snow blower. The SnowMaster completed the job in half the
time. Next up we have the best two-stage snow blower
which goes to the The Cub Cadet 2X 26-inch HP Gas Snow Blower. There are two features that set the Cub Cadet
2X 26-inch HP Gas Snow Blower apart from the competition. First, it has dual LED headlights, which is
important since the only opportunity many of us have to clear snow is when it’s dark
outside. It also has zero-turn, posi-steer power steering
that allows you to turn the blower around with just one hand. There’s a 26-inch clearing width and 21-inch
intake height. Another cool spec is the 16- by 4.8-inch tires,
which provide solid traction. Cub Cadet backs the 2X 26 HP with a three-year
limited warranty for residential use. Consumers Reports recommends the Cub Cadet
Snow Blower and gives it top ratings for the controls, handling, plow pile removal, and
owner satisfaction. The only metric it didn’t score better than
fair on in the tests was noise. Moving Snow recommends this model for people
with a two-car driveway that’s 100 feet long and is in an area that gets up to 60
inches of snow a season. The reviewer liked the two headlights, smooth
chute controls, and how much traction the tall tires afforded. About 82% of the buyers who reviewed the Cub
Cadet Snow Blower on the Home Depot website recommended it. Several of the buyers commented on how helpful
the power steering and ease of handling are. Another commonly mentioned benefit is how
far the machine throws the snow. It easily clears double-wide driveways, and
the steel chute adjusts effortlessly. For the most part, buyers have found unpackaging
and assembly to be simple, but the instructions cover four different models so be careful
to choose correctly. Up next we have the best single-stage snow
blower which goes to the Toro Power Clear 721 E Gas Snow Blower. At 87 pounds, the Toro Power Clear 721 E Gas
Snow Blower is incredibly light for a gas-powered snow blower. This, along with the Power Propel self-propel
system, make this single-stage unit easy to move around. Another cool feature is the Toro “Guaranteed
to Start” warranty, which states that the blower will start on the first or second pull
every time in the first two years. If not, the company will fix it for free. The hard-plastic body has a 21-inch width,
and the tough plastic auger makes constant contact with the surface for efficient clearing. The Wirecutter recommends the Toro Power Clear
721 E for smaller properties that get less snow. The reviewer liked that the snow blower is
light and compact enough to move around like a mower. However, he points out that single-stage blowers
are not ideal for gravel or grass since they can pick up and throw stones. Also, this blower has trouble with more than
six inches of snow. Consumer Reports didn’t review the 721 E,
but the site did review the 721 QZE, which is virtually identical except it costs $160
more than the E and has a chute control on the handlebar. The Power Clear receives top scores for the
controls, handling, surface cleaning, plow pile removal, and owner satisfaction. Consumer Reports recommends it and gives it
the highest rating of any single-stage gas snow blower. Approximately 69% of the people who reviewed
the Toro Power Clear 721 E Gas Snow Blower on the Home Depot website gave it five stars. The most common positives associated with
this machine are that it’s self-propelled, lightweight, has a good size and weight, and
it’s easy to use. The most helpful reviewer appreciated how
well the 721 E handled an early-season slushy snowfall with ease, and as a smaller person,
he liked that he just guided the unit rather than pushing it. Another buyer had his Power Clear break down
after a single use, but Toro arranged to have it repaired for free, and it worked great
after that. In at 4th we have the best cordless electric
snow blower which goes to the EGO Cordless Electric Snow Blower. For a battery-powered snow blower, the EGO
SNT2102 Cordless Electric Snow Blower can do a lot. It has a 21-inch clearing width and can handle
snow up to 10 inches deep. There are also two bright LED lights that
will help you clear your drive before taking off for work in the morning. The SNT2102 comes with two 5.0 Ah batteries. The batteries last up to 45 minutes, and the
charger takes 45 minutes to charge each battery. So, you may want to consider picking up extra
batteries if you have a lot of area to clear. The reviewer at Pro Tool Reviews used the
EGO Cordless Electric Snow Blower to clear off a pond hockey rink. In 15 minutes, he cleared six-inch-deep snow
going full-throttle with the LED lights on, and there was plenty of battery power left
over. The reviewer notes that the heavy snow was
launched about 28 feet. The reviewer at Home Fixated recommends this
machine because it was easy to set up, runs quietly, and handled the six inches of wet,
heavy snow that he received. More than 700 buyers on the Home Depot website
have left five-star reviews of the EGO Cordless Electric Snow Blower. The most helpful reviewer was impressed with
how it handled his area’s record snowfalls and saved his back. Assembly was also quick. Other buyers mention that they appreciate
that the blower is quiet, the batteries appear to last for at least 30 minutes, and it folds
up nicely for storage, though one reviewer notes that the chute has to be in just the
right position if you want to fold the handle. Last but not least we have the best affordable
snow blower which goes to the WEN 5662 Snow Blaster Electric Snow Thrower. The WEN 5662 Snow Blaster Electric Snow Thrower
is an electric, single-stage blower that relies on electricity provided by an extension cord. So, if you have a long driveway, this may
not be a reasonable solution. But, for small jobs, it can be great with
its 18-inch clearing width and 13.5 Amp engine that is supposed to clear 490 pounds of snow
per minute. The thrower only weighs about 39 pounds and
is backed by a two-year warranty. House and Garden Tech recommends the WEN Snow
Thrower because it takes less than 20 minutes to set up, can clear wide and deep paths in
a single pass, and it stores easily. However, the reviewer notes that the chute
tends to clog up when used in wet, heavy snow. Several other expert sites recommend this
model, including Backyard Boss, Whack Your Weeds, and A Green Hand. Around 81% of the buyers who reviewed the
WEN 5662 Snow Blaster Electric Snow Thrower on Amazon gave it a positive rating. Jeffrey Peterson, the most helpful reviewer,
gave it four stars. He was used to the big gas two-stage blowers
and took this out with 10 inches on the ground. It ran as quietly as a table saw and threw
the snow up to 15 feet. He was mildly annoyed by the safety switch
turning off on its own and requiring resetting. Another buyer mentioned that the WEN performed
better than a gas blower friends had given him, and it also handled plow piles. So that sums up our top snow blowers of 2019,
we hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video
