Blow Snow, Not Energy

The winter season is upon us here in The States, and that means it’s time to prepare for the dreaded task of snow-removal.

Unfortunately, most of the motorized methods tend to spew carbon like there’s no tomorrow, and it’s usually better to just do it by hand.

However, we’d like to present several alternatives that promise to save both the environment and your aching back.

Snow Jo Eco-Friendly Electric 18-inch Snow Blower

If you thought that electric-powered machinery means opting for a weak alternative, you couldn’t be more wrong. Powered by a 13.5 amp battery, this blower cuts 18 inches wide and 10″ deep in one pass. For the average homeowner, this plow is perfect. It has a 180-degree chute rotation, and can throw 650 pounds of snow per minute.

Toro Power Shovel

While slightly less powerful than the Snow Jo Blower, the Power Shovel is still a viable option for the vast majority of homeowners who don’t live in areas where 4-5 feet snowfalls are typically expected. It has a 7.5 amp battery, and can throw 300 pounds of snow per minute. The site claims that you can clear 4 inches off a 50-by-20 foot driveway in just 20 minutes. It’s also compact and ergonomic for easy off-season storage. For less than $100 bucks, the Power Shovel certainly isn’t a bad option.

Greenworks 12-inch 8 Amp Electric Snow Thrower

This plow is more suited for patio and porch cleanup than serious driveway work, though it’ll still get the job done. With a 2600 RPM blade, and 20 feet discharge distance, the Greenworks Thrower is a nifty device for quick cleanup around the house and walkway. Perfect for an elderly relative or for anyone who enjoys the convenience a motorized snow blower brings to winter chores.
