Electric snow blowers are a great tool, especially if you don’t want to have to keep shelling out your precious money for gasoline every time it snows. So, whether you need something that can clear an entire long driveway or something that can just take care of that sidewalk in front of your house, we’ve got you covered with some of the best electric snow blowers on the market today.
18” is a pretty safe midrange size for snow blowers, and the 15-amp motor can throw up to 720 pounds of snow per minute. That makes it a bit better investment than the 18” Snow Joes with only a 13.5-amp motor. Unless you have an absolutely monster country driveway this should do the job for you, and as a bonus, it also has an attached light because let’s face it, it always seems to snow the hardest at night.
WEN 18-Inch Snow Blaster
A 13.5-amp motor throws 490-lbs/minute and shoots it 20 feet away, which is important for anyone who, you know, doesn’t want to just have to blow the snow they just blew (say that five times fast) over and over and over again. It’s a bit more affordable than a big 15-amp motor blower, and add it all up and you can see why this is listed as “Amazon’s Choice” for electric snow blowers
Earthwise Electric Corded Snow Shovel
This is probably the best bargain you’re gonna find for an electric snow blower. It’s smaller, at 16”, and it’s not quite as powerful, with a 12-amp motor, but it can still clear 430-lbs/minute, and snow that’s up to 8” deep, so unless you live in the Yukon, you should be alright. It also throws snow 30 feet, and is small enough that it won’t take up a ton of space in your garage. The cord might be a bit of a hassle, but that’s what also makes it less expensive than the cordless version. Like I said, if you’re looking for a bargain, this is it.
PowerSmart 18” Snow Blower
This snow blower is a little bit different because it’s actually powered by a rechargeable 40V lithium-ion battery, which takes care of all the hassle of either cords or gasoline. As long as you remember to keep it charged, you’re always good to go. It throws snow 30 feet, and works great in snow up to 11” deep. It’s also designed to be lighter-weight and “nimbler” than most snow blowers, which makes it easy to use for anyone, including your little aged mother, which means that she won’t have to call you over every time it snows.
Toro 18” Electric Power Curve Snow Blower
Toro is arguably the number one brand when it comes to this sort of thing, and this beauty is their electric version. The 15-amp motor moves 700-lbs/minute, and it’s capable of handling snow up to a foot deep. It also boasts something called “power curve technology” which is a fancy way of saying that it’s built to clean all the way down to the pavement without clogging. Add it all up, and you can see why Toro is held in such high regard.
Greenworks 20” Corded Snow Thrower
This is probably your best bargain if you’re looking for a combination of size and price. There are actually benefits to using a corded snow blower too. They’re more reliable (well, as reliable as your own home electricity), they’re always ready to go without having to worry about charging or, worse, gasoline, and they’re quieter, which your neighbors will certainly be thankful for.
Snow Joe Ultra 21” Electric Snow Blower
This is Snow Joe’s larger alternative to its 18” version, and those extra 3” always make a hell of a difference (that’s what she said.) It not only clears a wider path, essential for saving time, it also throws 730-lbs/minute, and unlike most snow blowers this size, you can still get it for a decent price.
Ego Power+ 21” Snow Blower
A 56-volt lithium-ion battery powers this bad boy, which throws snow up to 35 feet, and is designed to work even with heavy, wet snow, which is a key detail overlooked by a lot of snow-blower manufacturers. It’s also designed to be whisper-quiet, which, again, helps with the neighbors, not to mention your own sanity. Twin LED lights keep things nice and bright for you while you blow that snow, and… yeah, this is just a killer machine.
Snow Joe 24” Snow Blower
At 24”, and powered by an 80-volt battery, this is the biggest, baddest electric snow blower you’re gonna find. How big and powerful is it? Well, it’s actually got a 4-speed digital-drive system, and includes an illuminated push-button display which tells you all sorts of good info about how this baby is performing. It also has headlights, and ergonomic trigger grips which are designed to keep your hands from cramping up. All of this sounds great, but what of performance? Well, it takes cares of over 1,000-lbs/minute and works great in snow over 13” deep. You’re simply not going to find a more powerful – or more effective – electric snow blower.
