Types of Snow Blowers


Single Stage Snow Blowers


Single stage snow blowers are very common for home owners with smaller drive ways or no drive ways at all. Single stage snow blowers have the name single stage because it only has one mechanism (the auger) to throw the snow. They struggle more in deeper snows and wet snow more than a two stage unit. A single stage snow blower has rubber paddles and plastic scrapper bars which are commonly replaced due to use over a period of time. An uneven driveway will also increase the wear and tear of a snow blower rubber paddles. Do not use a single stage snow blower on a grave driveway because it scraps the ground and will throw rocks.










Two Stage Snow Blower


Two stage snow blowers are typically used in commercial use or residential households with larger driveways or allot of side walk to clear. Two stage snow blowers use two stage to throw the snow, which means they have two augers. Unlike the single stage snow blower this unit has a metal or steel auger. The two stage snow blower can clear heavier snow much easier than a two stage snow blower and can throw the snow much further. Two stage snow blowers are typically very heavy and not easy to put in a car to have it serviced. Ferraro Small Engine Repair does offer pickup and delivery for these bigger units as well as all snow blowers. Two stage snow blowers are self-propelled which means they drive themselves and also have a reverse. Two stage snow blowers do have wear and tear parts as well but typically last much longer then the single stage wear and tear parts. The skids and scraper bar are the commonly the most replaced wear and tear parts. The skids protect the bucket from being torn apart so making sure every year that they are adjusted correctly and are still in good shape is very important to protect the snow blower. Ferraro Small Engine Repair make sure that all the two stage snow blowers skids are leveled and adjusted correctly to protect your equipment and prolong its life.
