Two stage snow blowers are considered to be the best because they are handling all types of the area to remove snow. They are the best option for the gravel driveway because they are not making any contact with the surface like the single stage blower. Most important thing is that they can clean up to an area with a width of 24-3- inches.

How 2 Stage Snow Blower Works

The double stage snow blower has self-propelled transportation which moves forward and backward the speed rate and it helps the worker during removal. In this snow blower, there are two steps involved in the process of snow removal that is why it is named as a 2 stage snow blower. In the first process, the auger collects the snow and transmits it to the center of the machine and then back to the impeller which after it will throw it out of the chute. The auger and the impeller are the two main and important parts of the snowblower which are combined by the engine and then work to chew the ice or snow and throw it out of the chute quickly and easily.
