It's that time of the year again: winter! and you'd rather be thinking about snow skiing than snow blowing. Me, too. No such luck. Snow is going to fall whether we like it or not, so we might as well make it as easy on ourselves to clear it as possible.

If you need the maximum possible power and have a large area to clear a gas-powered model is your best bet. Gas-powered snow blowers cost a bit more, sometimes quite a bit. And, they are typically heavier. They also require some maintenance. But for the large jobs there's simply no substitute.

Fortunately, there are plenty of electric models on the market that provide ample power to get the job done in many cases. Some can clear as much as 20 inch paths of 12 inch deep snow without bogging down. And they can toss it plenty far enough so you aren't doing the job multiple times.

True, there's the cord to deal with but clearing a path quickly and easily with a lighter weight snow blower model appeals to me. And, I confess, I'm not exactly heartbroken over saving big bucks at the same time.

In the end, which model works best for you is a personal choice. Fortunately, there is a wide variety of both gas-powered and electric snow blowers on the market. Whether you have a large yard to clear and a long driveway, or just a short sidewalk and entrance, there's a snow blower available for you at the right price with the right features.
