Two-Stage snowblowers are a cost-effective and efficient method of clearing large amounts of snow from paved or gravel surfaces. Two stage snow throwers are built to be durable. They perform well on any surface and in any weather condition and are the only blowers designed to clear gravel drives.
Two-Stage snowthrowers are ideal for the homeowner or professional dealing with a lot area to clear and/or large snowfalls and drifts at a time. The Two Stage design allows the metal auger to first break down the heavy packed snow while the second stage is spinning at higher speeds to throw the snow.
