Electric Snow Blower

Electric snow blowers are an alternative to traditional gas powered snow blowers and are known for being quieter, easier to maintain, and more environmentally friendly.

The following are some general features and considerations you might find with electric snow blowers.

Power Source

Corded snow blower

Corded Electric: 
These models need to be plugged into an electrical outlet. They are generally lighter and suitable for smaller areas but have the limitation of needing access to an electrical source. The primary limitation of corded electric snow blowers is the need for a nearby electrical outlet. This may limit their range and effectiveness in larger areas or properties without easy access to outlets. Before purchasing a corded electric snow blower, consider the size of the area you need to clear, the length of the power cord, and the power requirements for your specific snow removal needs.

These models are cordless and run on rechargeable batteries. They provide more flexibility and mobility but may have limited runtime depending on the battery capacity. One of the primary advantages of battery-powered snow blowers is their portability. They are not limited by a power cord, providing greater flexibility and ease of use. The runtime of a battery-powered snow blower depends on the capacity of the battery and the intensity of use. Higher-capacity batteries generally provide longer runtimes. Some models may come with interchangeable batteries, allowing you to have a spare battery on hand for extended use. These snow blowers produce zero emissions during operation, making them environmentally friendly


Electric snow blowers are typically suitable for clearing moderate amounts of snow, making them ideal for residential use. The performance of an electric snow blower depends on several factors, including its power, clearing width and depth, and the type of snow it is designed to handle. They may have different clearing widths and depths, so consider the size of the area you need to clear. The clearing width refers to the width of the path the snow blower can clear in a single pass, while the clearing depth indicates how deep the snow can be effectively removed. A wider clearing width and greater clearing depth allow for faster and more efficient snow removal.

The motor power is a critical factor influencing performance. It is usually measured in amps for corded electric models or volts for battery-powered models. Higher power generally allows the snow blower to handle heavier and wetter snow more effectively.


Electric snow blowers may be sensitive to extremely cold temperatures, which can affect battery performance or make corded models less flexible. Check the manufacturer's recommendations for temperature limits.

Runtime (for Battery-Powered Models)

If you are considering a battery-powered snow blower, check the runtime on a single charge. This will determine how long you can use the snow blower before needing to recharge the battery.


Electric snow blowers generally require less maintenance compared to gas-powered models. There's no need for oil changes, and they are typically easier to start.

Noise Level

Electric snow blowers are quieter than their gas counterparts, which can be beneficial, especially in residential areas.

Environmental Impact

Electric snow blowers produce zero emissions during operation, making them environmentally friendly compared to gas-powered alternatives.


Corded electric snow blowers are generally more affordable upfront compared to gas-powered models.

Battery powered snow blowers tend to be comparable with or exceed the price of gas powered snow blowers.

Battery-powered models provide greater portability since they don't have a cord. This can be particularly useful for larger areas or spaces where access to outlets is limited.
When choosing an electric snow blower, consider the specific needs of your property, the average snowfall in your area, and the convenience of the power source. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines for usage, maintenance, and safety precautions. Additionally, reading customer reviews and seeking recommendations can help you make an informed decision based on real-world experiences.
