Hard to think of snow while the sun is beaming down keeping the weather warm. As we all know, this will not last and winter is right around the corner.
Best to be prepared for the onset of snowfall by either upgrading or replacing your existing snow blower with a newer model that can get the job done. For some this means using a Heavy Duty snow blower for either residential or commercial use.
Heavy Duty Snow Jobs
Not all snow is created equal, as it can come in different varieties. For many residential locations, most snow can be easily removed but in some cases deep or moist snow can create problems for blowers and thus a heavy duty blower is required. Those who require a blower for commercial service, also need a heavy duty blower.
Heavy Duty blowers are double stage blowers which means they use a separate auger and impeller for removing snow. They are also gas powered which allows for more power to propel the auger through deep packed and moist snow.
However, there is nothing better than a heavy duty snow blower for getting rid of well packed, deep and moist snow. They are easy to use, quick starting and very efficient at getting the job done. Below are five great heavy duty snow blowers that will keep the path clear.
