"I want an electric snowblower"

Our usually snowfall from a storm is 3-8 inches, so it needs to be able to clear that amount. My neighbor has a Toro, are those any good?

I love my electric Toro 1800 Power Curve Snow Thrower: My review and a video

I've had this Toro snowblower (earlier model of same) for a few years. I used to have the Toro Power shovel, which was good, but since the Power Curve has wheels, it is much easier to clear my flat, not too long driveway with.

Check out the Toro 1800 in action on this guy's deck. Looks like he's clearing about 6 to 8 inches of light snow, which is about the sweet spot for this machine.

You can see how great it is a throwing the snow a long distance and how much quieter it is than a typical gas-powered snow blower.

I love that I don't need to worry about gas and oil, and I've gotten pretty good at toting the 100 foot extension cord around. It's also very lightweight and easy to store in my already cramped and cluttered garage.

Re: I want an electric snowblower

See my electric power shovel reply for more info, but don't forget to pickup a 14 or 12 gauge (not a 16 gauge) 100-foot extension cord and cord reel.

More information about The Benefits of an Electric Snowblower

Electric snow throwers surpass their gas-powered snowblower kin in a number of ways. Check out the comparisons below to see which snow blower type is right for you.

  • Quieter
  • No engine to maintain
  • Quick and easy starting
  • Lightweight and easy to manuever
  • Much less expensive ($300 vs. $1,000+)
  • Easy to store

Where Gas-Powered beats Electric:

  • Not tethered to a power outlet
  • Can clear wet, heavy snow
  • Can be self-propelled
  • Heftier wheels provide better snow traction
