The Best Electric Snow Thrower by Size

Updated on May 28, 2013

Are You Looking for the Best Electric Snow Thrower in a Small, Medium, or Full Size?

There are a whole bunch of plug-in snow throwers on the market in sizes from very small and light to full-sized powerful models. It can be confusing to shop the competition to figure out which one is right for you.

Whether you are in search of a light machine to clear a small walk or something that can cut through a heavy spring snow, here are the best of the best available now in each class. Don't waste time reading endless reviews before you buy your new machine. These models are proven winners.

What Are the Benefits of Electric Snow Blowers?

There are some good reasons to skip the gasoline-powered machines and go with an electric snow thrower. The main reason that people love their electric models is because they are easy to use. Unlike gas engines, electric engines start with the push of a button, making it simple for anyone to get going after a fresh snow has fallen. The engine also requires less maintenance and, with no gas or oil to worry about, you will never be snowed in without enough gas to get the job done. You also won't have to worry about changing the oil or clearing the tank of gas over summer.

Electricity-powered machines are also lighter, especially as the width of the clearing path becomes more narrow. In fact, the small models can be controller with one hand. This also makes storage simple and many models can even be hung on a wall when not in use, freeing up valuable garage floor space. The lighter weight also makes them easier to use and turn.

The main downside to electric snow blowers is that they are not as powerful as gas-powered versions, but they come pretty close if you pick the right model. The cord may also be an issue if your driveway is very long. These issues aside, if your snow removal needs are not too intense, it makes great sense to consider an electric model.

Electric Snow Throwers Make Sense

If you don't absolutely have to have a gas-powered model for a huge space, an electric machine makes perfect sense. You get instant start, light weight, ease of use, and best of all - no gas, oil, or excessive maintenance.

Get rid of the gas can and storage hassle and go electric.
