About Ariens Snow Throwers
Ariens has been called the “King of Snow”, and it is a title they have earned producing over four million snow blowers since the 1960s and becoming the number one selling brand of two-stage snow blowers in the world. These two-stage snow blowers are exactly what we sell here at HomCo.
Now, there are many different types of snow blowers and there is often confusion between single-stage snow blowers and two-stage snow blowers. The differences between these two types of snow blowers results in differences in size, quality, capabilities, and procedure on processing captured snow.
A typical single-stage snow blower only throws the snow it collects once when an auger, which is a tool in a helical shape used for drilling, pick up the snow and tossed it out the chute. They are lighter, smaller, and the easiest to handle out of the two, making it perfect for suburban areas. However, these snow blowers are NOT meant to be used on gravel because when used on gravel, it will pick up pieces of the gravel and throw it along with the snow, which could cause major injury and damage. Also, the amount of snow that this snow blower can handle is limited, handling snowfalls up to twelve inches.
Two-stage snow blowers tend to outperform single-stage snow blowers in every field. They can handle eighteen inches or more of snow. The two-stage hardy design allows for clearing large, deep, and heavy expanses of snow in a breeze, but there is also a major design difference between the single-stage and the double stage snow blowers and that is how many times snow is thrown. In a two-stage snow blower, the snow is thrown twice. It gets collected by an auger and then a high-speed impeller takes the snow and throws it through a discharge chute to keep the snow moving and prevent clogging of the intake bucket. Furthermore, the auger on a typical two-stage snow blower does not touch the ground allowing this machine to be used on gravel without the fear of gravel causing harm. This is why HomCo sells two-stage snow blowers over single-stage. For more information on these two types of snow blowers, please visit the following websites:
