There are many situations that are much too heavy to handle with a basic rake or shovel. In these particular instances, you might want to consider using a leaf blower or snow blower to get the job done. If you’re not sure of the features that come with each of these products and what the key differences are, we’re here to help. At Long Island Power Equipment, we’ve gathered some important information on leaf blowers and snow blowers. If you still have questions, be sure to give us a call or stop by and see us at our dealership in Farmingdale, NY!
The most common features of leaf blowers are the ability to clear dry and light snowfalls, they require minimal maintenance, they’re easy to store, and they can be used throughout all the seasons. Remember that leaf blowers are only good for handling dry snow and are limited to smaller jobs, around 4 inches of snow or less. The plus side is these machines are ideal for small places, they’re easy on your body, and they come in electric, cordless, and gas models.
As for snow blowers, these machines are capable of clearing light to heavy snowfalls, they require some maintenance and room to store, and they can be used during one season. Keep in mind that snow blowers can be rather loud and there's also the added cost of electricity or gas and oil depending on the model you choose. The good news is that these powerful machines can move large amounts of dry or wet snow in a short amount of time, they’re easy to push, and they come in electric or gas models.
