Snowblowers vs. Snow throwers

A snowblower is meant to be more powerful than a snow thrower, according to Bob Vila. But it seems the terms are used interchangeably these days. We've included both snowblowers and snow throwers ahead, and note -- the snowblowers are not all stronger.

What to consider when buying the best snowblowers

When shopping for a snowblower or snow thrower, consider whether you'd prefer an electric or battery-powered one. Electric snowblowers are quieter than gas-powered ones. Some electric snowblowers are corded, while others run on batteries. These batteries typically last for 45 minutes to an hour, so you may want extra batteries on hand to clear larger areas of snow.

Next, consider how deep and wide of a path you need your snowblower to make, plus how far you want the snow to be thrown. If you frequently deal with large storms, you'll want a more powerful model.

The snowblowers ahead throw snow different distances. We've chosen to include only electric snowblowers here, as some gas-powered models cannot be shipped online.
