Snow Blowers 101
Snow blowers are used to quickly and easily remove snow. They easily cut through packed snow or ice, like that stuff left behind by snow plows at the end of the driveway.
Buying a snow blower, on the other hand, can be very daunting if you've never purchased or used one before. So we've assembled some information and tips to help you learn more about how an engine works, how to select the snow blower that best meets your specific needs, and how it can help keep your sidewalks and driveway clear.
Dual Stage Snow Blower
Large frame snow blowers, known as dual stage, are self-propelled with an auger and impeller to remove snow. The auger and impeller, combined with the power of the engine, remove more snow faster by chewing up snow and ice then throwing it through the chute. Dual stage snow blowers are great for handling all types of snow on any surface.
Why Engines Matter
The Briggs & Stratton Snow Series™ engines are great for giving the power that is required to handle snow blowing. Reliable and easy to start even in the coldest weather conditions, the Briggs & Stratton snow engines are designed to deliver the power you’ll need to blow even heavy, wet snow.
