Other Facts about Snow Blowers

The snow blower was created in 1925 by the Canadian Arthur Sicard. His invention was comprised of a truck and a couple of snow blower chutes. A motor was fitted in. Sicard’s machine could suck in the snow and hurl it ninety feet away. The snow could also be put in the truck.

The machine was a hit when it first came out, but it truly became popular when blowers for home use came out in 1951. The new snow blower could pack hard and soft snow in the truck. It was a huge improvement over the snowplow.


Two designs are in use today. The single stage snow blower is compact and light. These are suitable for light work and working in narrow and small areas.

The dual stage blower is larger. They are designed to move snow over different kinds of terrain. Dual snow blowers have a ridged blade so it can plow through hard snow. It also comes with another blade to put the snow into the container.

The snow blower dimensions have a direct effect on the amount of snow that can be removed. If you only need to remove light snow, the single stage snow blower will be sufficient. But if snow packs in regularly at your area, it is a good idea to invest in the dual stage machine.
