Its snowblower week here at Nepean Kanata Air Cooled Engines!
To start this week we will start with the different types of blowers today will highlight single stage blowers! Single stage snowblowers are generally smaller in size and power. They are offered in both electric and gas models. Single stage snowblowers have one piece auger and impeller which is designed to cut and throw the snow. This rubberised impeller is also used to pull the snowblower along the ground, but because of this drive system these blowers preform the best on paved driveways or walkways. Because in the Ottawa Valley we get heavy snowfall we generally see these used for decks, pathways and smaller jobs, where the bigger beefier Dual Stage blowers for most driveways.
