Are you tired of winter stopping you in your tracks? Well hang up that snow shovel and get something with a little more bite. That’s right, bite! For too long Jack Frost has been making snow shoveling miserable. But, in today’s technology driven world you can finally conquer winter.


There is just one problem though, what do you choose? With snow blowers, lawn tractor accessories, and power brooms it’s hard to decide. Each one of these can remove snow, but which one is the best for you? So, we invite you to read what we think some of the advantages and disadvantages of each one of these products are.


Snow Blower


What is not to love about a machine that eats through snow. Seriously, snow blowers can chew through snow like a saw through wood. They are small enough to clean both your driveway and sidewalk. Also, it can be stored in your garage or barn without taking up too much space. But like everything out there it has some drawbacks.


If you have limited space in your garage or barn already, you might not have the capacity to store it. Another interesting factor is a snow blower is a seasonal item. Besides removing snow, it does nothing else. That brings us back to the whole storage thing, once the snow stops you have to store it. Other than that a snow blower is a nice

piece of equipment to have.


Tractor Accessories


Instead of buying a whole new piece of equipment, just buy a snow attachment. Adding a snowplow to the front of your lawn tractor can have you moving snow like the pros. Or better yet add a snow blower attachment to the front of your lawn tractor. Accessories can be somewhat affordable and add more value to your lawn tractor. Instead of storing it for the winter, just outfit it with some snow tires and an attachment.


Some additional information to take away is still the price. Attachments will vary by price and some can be expensive. Then once you buy the attachment, you have to install it, which can take time. Like the snow blower you need room to store your seasonal attachments. So if a little installation, flexible pricing, and a wide variety of attachments is you, you might consider using your lawn tractor.


Power Broom/Sweeper


Finally the power broom/sweeper. If you have seen one of these in action you will know the capability they have. If not, we encourage you check it out. A power broom can be used as an attachment or stand-alone device. Unlike a snow blower it can be used for other things besides removing snow, which definitely increases its value. Like the tractor accessories it has somewhat flexible pricing. But its ability to remove snow, dirt, and yard debris makes it very useful.


But, it also has some negative aspects. Like all products it needs a place to call home. These can be large and can take up a large amount of space. Depending on what kind of broom you get, it can be expensive and if you buy the attachment you have to install it. But, if those don’t phase you, maybe the power broom is for you.


No matter which one of these you choose they all do a great job of removing snow quickly. Each one of these share the same commonality of being able to remove snow. Now it just depends on you and what your preferences are. Also, you have a lot of variables to consider like where you live, what’s your budget, do I have room, and can I install it. So, no matter which one you choose, we hope you conquer winter again and take back your driveway. Remember, why shovel snow when you can remove snow.
