BRRRRR! Winter is coming, and before you know it, the snow will be falling... Is your snowblower ready?
Whether you're buying a new model or owning a snow blower for the first time, BlowMySnow.com is here to help. This site doesn't sell snow blowers, but is designed to be a free consumer resource to help people pick out the right snowblower for their needs.
When I moved to Vermont from Miami fifteen years ago, clearing the driveway of snow during winter became another one of my many household tasks. The afternoon before a big snow storm was expected to hit, my wife told me, "Why don't you go into town and pick up a snowblower?" I dutifully obliged and drove my local hardware store. Upon arriving, I found myself barraged with choices. I just wanted something simple to handle a small driveway, but the guy at the store showed me twenty different models. Not sure which one to get, I asked, "This is all well and good, but what do I really need?" He recommended I hire him to plow my driveway.
I ended up driving to Wal-Mart and buying a cheap no-name snowblower. It died halfway through winter. Since then, I've tried a number of snowblowers, only to find they don't hold up or perform as the manufacturer promised. There are some great snow blowers out there, but a lot of duds, too. I created this site so you don't make the same mistakes I did.

A snow blower (also snow blower) is a both rail and road transport (mostly on mountain roads) unit, which allows you to evacuate large quantities of snow and ice. Compared to the simple plow the snow thrower is much more effective. When removing snow, the snow is not pushed to the side, but milled on a spinning wheel included, and discharged laterally into a large bow again. For road milling the snow is mostly taken up by a horizontal blower. The milling in rail transport are referred to as a snow blower. They work with about ten oblique, replaceable blades which are mounted on a parallel or perpendicular to the direction of rotating drum. The first snow blowers in the railways were built around 1890 under the Patent Leslie in the United States. The wheel of steam snow blower is operated with steam. A self-propelled snow blower, the steam is not a rule. It is pushed by a locomotive. They were used in snow-rich regions such as the White Pass and Yukon Railway, on the Gotthard, the Lötschberg or on the Bernina. 1943 were built in Germany, the last steam snow blowers from Henschel.
