Craftsman 21" 179cc Single-stage Snow Blower w/ Electric Start
With a 4-cycle engine and electric start, the Sears Craftsman 21" 179cc Single-Stage Snowblower w/ Electric Start comes out on top. It will cut a 21-inch swath through 13-inches of snow, the 179cc engine puts out about 4 horsepower, and it comes protected by a two year warranty. For a single stage unit, it is packed with features like an electric start so you don't have to mess around with a pull cord, and it's also self-propelled to make it easier to blow snow with.
At 98 pounds, it’s one of the lighter units here, so it will be easier to maneuver as you’re blowing and drifting snow. There’s also a handle on the discharge chute allowing you to turn the blower one way or another. Although this is one of the more expensive units on this list, it’s one of the best equipped. For about 85 percent of all snowfalls, you'll never need more than this.
