Snow Blowers and Throwers
Snow Blowers and Throwers are machines for removing snow from unwanted areas like roadway, runway, sidewalk, railroad track or driveway. Both snow thrower and snow blower are slightly different from each other, snow thrower uses a single stage to remove the snow and snow blower uses two stages to remove snow. These machines either use electric power, diesel or gasoline as fuel source to throw snow to another location. Snow throwers ranges from the very small size, capable of removing only few inches of light snow to the very large size especially designed for moving 10 foot wide snow up to 6 feet deep.
Snow Blowers and Throwers use a high speed impeller to move the snow into machine as well as force it out the discharge chute. Snow thrower with a single high speed impeller is light duty machine whereas heavy duty machines are usually self-propelled. On one hand snow throwers is a helpful machine to move snow to another place without any difficulty but on the other hand because of its complicated design it can lead to cause traumatic finger amputations.
Electric Snow Blower requires no gas or oil, it is easy to handle, light weight and Eco-friendly. Electric Snow Thrower is best used for small jobs like removing snow from decks, sidewalks. Tractor Snow Blower can be a very useful and time saving piece of equipment. Basically there are two different configurations of tractor snow blower, a front mount and a rear mount.
Diesel Snow Blower is made to carry out heavy duty; this is the reason why they come with at least 19 HP diesel engines. Along with this they also have features like power steering, roll bar, cruise control, liquid cooled 3 cylinder engine. Selecting a Snowblower Attachment makes a good sense for a lawn mower and it makes the mower more efficient. Industrial Snow Blower is rated at 800 tons/hour, utilizes standard off-the-shelf components to reduce cost.
Snowblowers and snowthrowers are machines which swipe away or clean away snow from snow oriented areas where snow is in heavy amount, such as highways, airport tracks, driveways or ports. Snowblowers are typically machines which drive away snow in two stages whereas snowthrowers do it in only one stage. Single stage snowthrowers use a convenient technique to force the snow along the centerline of the machine where the discharge chute is located and then force them out through that. Usually curved paddles are placed along as impellers in the snowthrowers. Whereas snowblowers are high end diesel machines which churn the snow with the heavy tire chains or tracks and carry them away or force them out, with a huge horsepower.
Actually most of the snowthrowers are gas powered, but for short driveways having less snow, the most convenient option is the electric snow thrower. It is lighter than gas operated machines and suitable for home as they can easily be operated from the electricity sockets in homes. They are convenient, easy to handle and are suitable for personal areas like home backgrounds or lawns. Some of the electric snowblowers and snowthrowers can cost you much less than the gas snowblowers and one can easily use them to clean up one foot high snow in their background.
In the high end list, comes the diesel snowblower. It comes with better torque and power and the fuel capacity varies in this type of snowblowers. The power output also varies between 18 to 30 HP as well. Mostly augers are used to churn the snow out or trank rollers. High snow removing capacity is the main feature of diesel snowblowers. Snowblower attachments handle wet, heavy snow removal jobs efficiently. They have heavy duty drives which maximizes energy resulting in powerful throwing of the snow. The discharge chutes in the attachment rotate ranging from 20 degree to an astonishing 200 degree. Attachments can be detached as needed.
These days, industries use more complex huge Industrial snowblowers. They have a throwing distance of nearly 8 to 10 meter and 2.5 kw output power. Some of the companies related to manufacturing snowblowers and snowthrowers are John Deere, Ariens, Toro, Honda, Simplicity, Poulan etc. Most of these companies are famous for excellent customer service and durability with performance.
