Winter weather does not only mean cold temperatures. For many people it also means ice and snow removal. If you’re looking to make quick work of clearing snow from the driveway or walkway, pick up a new snow blower from Ace. Snow blowers will save you time and energy when tackling the winter’s toughest weather.
At Ace you will find a variety of snow throwers, including models from Husqvarna and Toro. Whether you are clearing your sidewalk or an extra-long driveway, we offer a range of snow throwing capacities and clearing widths, so you’ll be sure to find the right model for your needs. Many of our snow throwers also include special features such as ergonomic handles, lights and electric start options.
When choosing a snow blower, you will need to decide between electric and gas snow blowers. An electric blower usually weighs less than a gas model and is ideal for light snow in smaller areas such as a walkway, patio or small to medium driveway. If you plan to clear mostly narrow paths like stairways and porches, electric shovels are ideal because of their streamlined size and maneuverability. If you decide to purchase an electric model, it is important to remember that you will need to have access to an outlet and outdoor extension cord. For the removal of heavy snow, large areas or frequent use, a gas snow blower is your best choice. The gas snow blower provides more power than the electric blower and can tackle large spaces and thick, icy snow. Gas blowers are available in single and two-stage options. Single stage will break up the snow and push it to the side of the path you are clearing, while a two-stage model will break up the snow and then actually blow the snow up and out of your path.
This winter, pick up a snow thrower from Ace and spend less time outside in the cold and more time inside staying warm. For more information, check out our snow blower guide.
