Question about snowblower
I recently moved into the Chicago suburb area, so this is the first time I may have to get a snowblower.
My house has a 18 feet two car driveway that's 50 feet long. There's a walk way that's 40 feet to the door that's 4 feet wide. The sidewalk is 4 feet wide and extend about 10 feet on each side of my driveway. The walkway is made of brick.
According to the weather websites, Chicago area rarely get more than 10" of snow.
From what I can determine, I can probably get by using a single stage. I notice a Toro PowerClear 180 18" with a 87cc engine. Is this good enough or do I have to get a 21"?
Let's put it another way, how much time am I buying by buyig a 21" over a 18"? If I have a large snow storm of 2 feet or something, can I still use the blower and just make multiple passes?
