Best Snow Blower under $1000


Troy-Bilt Storm 2625 Snow Blower – Best for easy control

The Storm 2625 snow blower stands out for several reasons. The first is a Just One Hand technology which allows you to lock in your speed. With speed locked in, you only need one hand to steer the blower. The other hand is free to work controls such as a 2-way chute control lever. It lets you to turn the chute from side to side in order to vary direction of snow discharge.
You will also notice that this chute is longer than in other snow blowers. The extended design in intended to reduce blowback of snow discharge on you.
Airless tires assure you that you will never have to deal with a flat tire and also provide strong traction.
26 inches of working width makes this blower slightly wider than average and an in-dash headlight provides clear visibility even when you need to clear snow after dark.

What we liked

⦁ 26-inch clearing width
⦁ Lock in speed
⦁ Airless tires
⦁ Extended chute design

What we didn’t like

⦁ 8 speeds may be difficult to understand

Husqvarna ST224 Snow Blower – Best for chute control

The Husqvarna ST224 is a 2-stage snow blower with a working width of 24 inches.
It is powered using a 208cc Husqvarna engine which provides sufficient power to handle snow about 12 inches deep. A 2.7- liter gas tank means you can clear snow a few times before it is time for a refill.
A favorite feature in this model is a remote controlled chute. With this you don’t have to stop to adjust chute direction manually. There is a remote control used to move the deflector and rotate the chute as far as 180 degrees, allowing you to vary disposal directions as you go.
Loop handles serve to maintain a strong grip on the machine and handle grips are warmed to keep you warm as you tackle the snow. The one gripe we have with this snow blower is its plastic control panel.

What we liked

⦁ Remote controlled chute
⦁ Sturdy wheels for good traction
⦁ Heated handlebar grips
⦁ Loop handles

What we didn’t like

⦁ Plastic control panel

Ego SNT2400 – Best cordless electric snow blower

Corded electric snow blowers can be cumbersome because you are limited by the length of the cord. Not forgetting that you have to be careful not to get the cable caught under the blower.
This self-propelled model gives you the advantages of electric power but without a cord. The Ego SNT2400 is a 2-stage snow blower powered by 2 EGO 56V batteries. A 24-inch clearing width makes it suitable for your driveway or sidewalks and heavy-duty steel construction makes it capable of clearing snow up to 20 inches deep.
Disposing of cleared snow is easy because the chute can rotate up to 200 degrees and throw it up to 50 feet away. You can vary speed depending on specific need and have the option for both forward and reverse motion. If you need to clear the snow at night, 4 bright LED headlights make it possible to do so.

What we liked

⦁ Cordless electric
⦁ Variable speed control
⦁ Chute rotates up to 200 degrees
⦁ Throws snow up to 50 feet

What we didn’t like

⦁ Heavy batteries

Briggs & Stratton S1024 – Best light duty snow blower

This Briggs & Stratton model is best for you if you get light to medium snowfall. It also works best for small driveways and pathways with a clearing width of 24 inches.
A 208cc gas-powered engine is behind the machine’s 5 forward and 2 reverse speeds. To start it up, you only need to push an electric push button. With this starting system, you will have no trouble getting the engine rumbling, even in extremely low temperatures.
Manual chute rotation means you have to switch directions in which the chute disposes displaced snow, and this is done using a chute crank moved from left to right.
LED lights make it possible to clear snow at any time of day or night although night clearing next to the house may be inconvenient because the blower is somewhat loud.

What we liked

⦁ Electric start system
⦁ 5 forward and 2 reverse speeds
⦁ LED lights

What we didn’t like

⦁ Quite noisy
