Is Buying An Electric Snow Thower A Good Idea?

In most cases, electric snow throwers are great but there are some instances where they might have limitations. In this article, I review two such instances.

There is little doubt that there are plenty of benefits in owning a snow blower that runs on electric. They are very light and easy to push around and they can be stored in a space as small as a closet. Unlike many gas powered machines, you do not have to worry about some chemical in the oil eating into some pipe and leaking to your garage or the engine not starting right after a snow storm when you need it so much. They are astonishingly quiet and do not produce the smoke that only makes working in the cold more unbearable. In many ways, it is possible to say that electric snow throwers cause you hardly a fraction of the stress that could come with a gas snow thrower. As if all of this was not enough, they are also very competitively priced so you will be saving hundreds of dollars right from the start. Indeed, it appears like there in no logical reason for not dumping you old snow blower and getting an electric unit.

With all the good stuff I have listed above, there are a few points you need to consider to make sure an electric snow thrower will be the most profitable choice to replace an existing snow blower or your shovel. To help you decide, I will discuss these two points below.

First, you need to keep in mind that the power of an electric unit can never compete with that of a gas snow blower and if you are living in a state where there is heavy snowfall in winter, an electric snow blower is probably not the ultimate snow removal product. Even a 15-amp snow thrower will not be able to break through chunks of icy snow or piles as high as 20 inches. Forcing an electric snow blower into such overwhelming masses of snow will get the auger jammed at best and it could even make your snow blower break. In other word, not even the best electric snow blower will be be very helpful if your state is not a place where electric snow throwers work fine

The second issue you could have with an electric snow thrower is about the power source. A snow thrower that runs on gasoline can remove snow just about anywhere without any need for connecting to any energy infrastructure but you need an electric outlet for an electric snow blower. This means you will have to stay close to a socket and your overall range will not be beyond the reach of an extension cord. If you have a very large lot to clear from snow and you know an electric cord will not be a practical solution to reach the far corners of your property, think twice before you get an electric unit.
