The SNT2400's wide 24 in. clearing width makes it easy to clear driveways and sidewalks of any size, and its 20 in. intake height allows it to reach under obstacles such as overhead power lines and fences. The SNT2400's auger control allows you to adjust the auger's speed from 0 to 4 mph. We dialed the speed down to 3 mph, and this blower had no problem clearing our 18-car driveway and sidewalk. We also tested the EGO SNT2400 in 12 inches of snow, and, even though the blower threw a lot of snow, it didn't take as long to clear it as our top pick, the Snow Joe iON16. The SNT2400 throws snow up to 50 ft., so you can use it to clear a sidewalk, driveway, or your entire yard. The blower's 4 brightly LED headlights make it much easier to see at night, and the blower's low-noise operation prevents it from waking you or your neighbors. The SNT2400 also is equipped with a forward and reverse switch, so you can use the blower to clear snow out of your way. The EGO Power+ SNT2400 24 in.

Briggs & Stratton 24" Dual-Stage Snow Blower Electric with Start and 208 Snow Series Engine

by Briggs and Stratton Power Products

Powerful 950 snow series 208cc Engine for 9.5 foot pounds of torque

The Briggs & Stratton 24" Dual-Stage Snow Blower with Electric Start and 208 Snow Series Engine, 1024 (1696610) is built for commercial use, but it's a serious snow blower for homeowners as well. It packs a lot of power into a relatively small unit, and it's fairly easy to maneuver, whether you're clearing your driveway or sidewalks. In fact, it's one of the most maneuverable units we tested, and there's enough clearance between the blade and the ground to clear a small car. However, it's a bit heavy, and it's somewhat loud. The electric start makes it somewhat easier to start, but the manual pull cord can be a real pain if you don't start it in advance. The Briggs & Stratton 24" Dual-Stage Snow Blower with Electric Start and 208 Snow Series Engine, 1024 (1696610) isn't the best unit we tested, but it is one of the best. It's powerful, durable, and maneuverable, and it's surprisingly quiet.

The Ariens ST24LE Deluxe 24" Two-Stage 254cc Snow Blower 921045 is an easy-to-use, powerful leaf blower that throws snow up to 50 feet. It has excellent power and speed, and it handled snow well. The blower also performed well in gusty winds. The steering is automatic, so it's easy to use, but it's slightly rougher than the steering on the Greenworks 24" Two-Stage Snow Blower ($339.99). The ST24LE has a wider, more solid base than the Greenworks model, which makes it easier to push. A rear-mounted starter is more convenient than the push knob on the Greenworks model. The ST24LE is heavier than the Greenworks model, so it's a little harder to carry around. The ST24LE has a 25-foot cord, so it's a little easier to store than the 20-foot cord on the Greenworks model. The ST24LE has a slightly higher price tag than the Greenworks model, but it's more powerful, and it throws snow farther.

Champion Power Equipment 301cc 27-Inch 2-Stage Gas Snow Blower with Electric Start

Champion Power Equipment 301cc 27-Inch 2-Stage Snow Gas Blower with Electric Start

by Champion Power Equipment

Effective: 12-inch (30.5 cm) carbon-steel auger easily cuts through day-old packed snow and ice while the powerful impeller provides a clearing distance of up to 30 feet (9.1 m)

The Champion Power Equipment 301cc 27-Inch 2-Stage Gas Snow Blower with Electric Start is the most powerful snow blower we tested, and it's very powerful indeed. The 301cc engine has a 21-inch clearing height and a 27-inch clearing capacity, both of which are more than sufficient to clear most driveways. The chute's 16-inch width (larger than on our top pick) helps the machine reach deep into snowbanks, and its 13-inch width (smaller than on our top pick) is ideal for clearing sidewalks and driveways. Our only complaint is the engine's push-button electric start, which is extremely slow. It took several minutes for our machine to start. On the plus side, the 301cc engine is quiet, and the machine's controls are easy to use. Among its many nice features, the 301cc comes with a 12-inch steel auger, a 9.5-inch auger paddle, and 16-inch rubber wheels.

WEN SB24 24-Inch 212cc Two-Stage Snow Gas Blower with Electric Start

by WEN

Sturdy steel construction along with the notched 4-blade auger make easy work out of ice and snow

For big jobs, you need a big snow blower. The WEN SB24 24-Inch 212cc Two-Stage Gas Snow Blower with Electric Start has a powerful engine, a 24-by-21-inch clearing path, and enough fuel capacity to run 1 hour and 45 minutes on a single tank. We liked how easy it was to use, and it's compact enough that it can easily fit in a storage closet. The manual prop wheels can be turned off, and the blower has an electric start, making it easy to start in cold weather. The chute pivots 190 degrees for better visibility, and the adjustable chute handle makes it easy to direct the snow where you want. The blower is powerful enough to clear a 24-by-21-inch area in a snowstorm, but you'll need to be careful when operating it on slopes or inclines, as it's top-heavy. The blower has 2 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds, and it comes with 2 6-inch snow blades.
