Lowes Snow Blowers 2014 | Choosing A New Snow Blower

Get familiar with snow blower types and features and to find the machine that’s best for your snow-clearing needs. Choosing the best snowblower for your needs is somewhat dependent on the area you need to clear, but it’s also determined by the type of snow you typically remove. That first snowfall is fun.  Every one after that is hard work especially if you are using a shovel!  The biggest job after a snowfall is clearing the driveway and sidewalk–and the best way to make this tough job easier is with a snow blower.
Both single-stage and two-stage machines are great for clearing snow from your driveway and sidewalk, but they remove snow differently, and each works best for different types of snowfalls. Whether it’s an electric snow blower or gas snow blower, there is a snowblower with many features to choose from. As you look at different models, keep the following questions in mind to help you narrow down your choices:

  • How large is the area you need to clear?
  • Do you need features like electric start, lights or hand warmers?
  • How much snow do you receive annually and how frequently does it fall?
  • Do you prefer a gas or electric model? Read More…

Troy Bilt Storm 2620 Review. Lowes 189206

One of the best values in snow blowers for the last five seasons has been the Troy Bilt Storm series. And at the top of the list is the Troy-Bilt Storm 2620.  It is a 208-cc 26-in Two-Stage Electric Start Gas Snow Blower with headlight and retails for $759.  This two-stage snow blower is tough enough to cut through heavy snow but portable enough to handle and store. Lowes Item 189206.  This model, 31BM63P3711,  is exclusive to Lowes, but is also sold as the Troy Bilt Storm 2620 at other retailers.
The 189206 two-stage 26″ snow thrower is designed to deliver added power and greater clearing width.  The 12-inch serrated, all-steel augers pull snow into the blower unit to power through the toughest conditions. The machine comes with an operations manual and a quick start guide. One manual explains all the body components while the other is focused on the engine.  Overall, the machine is very sturdy and industrial strength,  yet easy to control. This Troy-Bilt Storm is a step up from the 2410 model and  is designed to clear large snowfalls quickly. It has plenty of power to bust through plow drifts and move the heavy wet snow. The 26 inch width is wide enough to make short work of most large areas yet small enough to easily work around most obstacles. Just One Hand® operation lets you guide the two-stage snow thrower with one hand, freeing the other hand to adjust the chute direction without stopping. And with a wide 26″ clearing width, your drive will be clear in no time.

This model has been in production since 2009 with some minor changes through the years.  It continues to be one of the best values in two stage snow blowers.

Lowes 189194 Troy Bilt Storm 2410 Snow Blower Review

When the forecast calls for a foot or more, count on this two-stage snow thrower to pull through. This is a medium-duty two-stage snow blower and it will move snow better than most models on the market.  This snow blower is not for everyone, but if you have a driveway about 20 by 60 foot, this will do the job. Any area larger than that and you may want to step up to the 26″ or 28″model. Quick starting and easy to operate, the two-stage Storm 2410 snow thrower will cut into drifts with its 21″ intake height and steadily clear the way, 24″ at a time until the job is done.

lowes2410 150x150 Lowes 189194 Troy Bilt Storm 2410 Snow Blower ReviewThis snow thrower is a very popular model and has been produced since 2010 with minor changes. It continues to be a solid, dependable snow blower and is still one of the best values out there.  The 24 inch width is wide enough to make short work of average driveways yet small enough to easily go in and out the side door on your garage. You can quickly clear most sidewalks in two passes.  Can handle snowfall as high as a foot with no trouble. Two-year limited warranty. One of the most affordable two-stage blowers on the market.   Only downside is the manual chute control only offers 180 degrees of movement. Lacks power steering–something available in models only a step up in price. Engine is solid but be sure to use fuel stabilizer as it is hard to start in extreme ( 10 degrees or colder) weather.
