Spring is fast approaching in many states, bringing with it the freezing temperatures and snow that inevitably comes with the season. It's common for seasonal residents to stock up on snow shovels. In our latest electric snow shovel review, we took a look at some of the best available. After determining which ones are best, we extracted their key features and put them all in one place. Read on to see our picks for the best electric snow shovels of 2019.

Shoveling snow can be time consuming, but having the right tool for the job can make a world of difference. A shovel with a wider blade makes clearing snow easier, and one with a power cord allows you to move the shovel around without having to plug in. Our team of experts carefully screened and assessed the best snow shovels on the market, from cordless models to manual options. We assessed that they work well for snow removal, have a sturdy design, and are easy to maneuver in tight spaces. After testing, we narrowed our selections down to the top 10 for detailed hands-on analysis.

Earthwise SN70016 Electric Corded 12Amp Snow Shovel, 16

Earthwise SN70016 Electric 12Amp Corded Snow Shovel

by American

Corded snow shovel key features; Auxiliary handle, cord retention hook, rear wheels, dual-curved auger blade, and thermal protection

At 16 inches wide, the SN70016 is wider than most electric snow shovels, and it's able to clear 8 inches of snow in just 4 minutes. At a full 430 pounds per minute, this snow blower is the most powerful one we've tested. The SN70016's 12-amp motor is more powerful than most snow blowers' 1-amp motors, and it's also more powerful and more efficient than a gas snow thrower. The snow blower has enough power to clear snow in a heavy snowfall, but it's not quite as effective on lighter snow. (We did find it a little underpowered on snow that was only 3 or 4 inches deep, but it's plenty powerful for snow that's 6 inches deep or more.) The shovel's 16-inch width allows it to clear snow quickly, and the large 30-foot throwing distance is ideal for covering large areas. Its 6-inch rear wheels make moving the SN70016 a breeze. The shovel weighs 71 pounds, which is nearly twice as much as the 55-pound snow blower in our test. The shovel is heavier than we'd like, but it's easy enough to transport: The 6-inch wheels make transporting the shovel easy, and the front handle makes it easy to push the shovel forward. The shovel comes with a 25-foot power cord, but we found that it was too short for our needs. The shovel also comes with a 30-day warranty and a lifetime guarantee on the motor.

Earthwise SN74016 40-Volt Cordless Electric Snow Shovel, Brushless Motor, 16-Inch width, 300lbs/Minute (Battery and Charger Included)

Earthwise SN74016 40-Volt Electric Cordless Snow Shovel

by American

Comfortable and ergonomic snow blower handle; Features 6" rear wheels, and dual blade auger

The Earthwise SN74016 40-volt cordless snow shovel and blowers are just as effective at clearing snow as corded models, and we found them to be quieter and easier to use. The 16-inch clearing width is enough for two people to clear a 10-foot-wide path in one pass, and the blower can move snow up to 32 feet. The 40-volt battery and charger included with the SN74016 are plenty powerful for clearing most light- to medium-duty snow, and the battery charges in about 2 hours. The shovel has a 50-pound weight capacity, and the shovel blade automatically stops when a load is lifted. The chute rotates 180 degrees, and the front handle has a comfortable grip. Some reviewers complained that the shovel was too heavy, but we found that it handled well and had a sturdy build, and the more we used it, the more we liked it. This snow shovel and blower is very powerful, so it's important to use it with caution. It's capable of lifting heavy loads, and we recommend wearing gloves while you operate it.

The shovel is lightweight enough to lift easily, but it weighs about 22 lbs., so it's recommended that two people use it. The shovel's plastic blade can get clogged with snow, so we recommend clearing snow from the blade after each use. Additionally, the shovel's handle folds down, so it's compact enough to store in a garage or shed until you need it. The Snow Joe 323E comes with a 10-amp extension cord, a 10-amp universal plug, and a 12-amp battery charger, so there are no additional purchases required.
