I need help in choosing between 2 snow throwers. What is the most important things to look for? I have about 500sq ft of driveway, 50 ft of walkway and the same arounfd the house. Live in Binghamton so we get about 50-60 inches of snow a year.
Sears has a 9 hp, 26inwide, electric start, 9in. impeller 10" auger. Lowes has a thrower which also makes the sears thrower brand. Sears is $699.
The lowes is 5hp, 22in wide, 12in. impeller, 11in auger with small serrations, no electric start. The lowes is $537. Will both do the same job. If so should i get the less powerful thrower, and does the difference in auger size and impeller size mean a great difference. thank.... Craig
