The weight of snow blowers can vary greatly depending on their type, size and features. Single-stage snow blowers can weigh as little as 24 pounds on the lighter end, while electric models may range from around 30 to 65 pounds. Mid-range models, including two-stage snow blowers, can weigh between 100 to 200 pounds. Large three-stage snow blowers can weigh upwards of 300 pounds on the heavier end. Always remember to check the specific weight of the model you're interested in, as weights can vary even within the same type of snow blower.
If you're environmentally conscious or prefer a quieter, easy-to-maintain machine, consider our electric snow blowers for rent. They're efficient, easy to start and perfect for clearing moderate amounts of snow from your property.
Yes, leaf blowers do take mixed gas. The engine of a leaf blower is typically a two-stroke engine, which requires a blend of gasoline and oil to function correctly. The typical ratio for this mixture tends to be 40:1 or 50:1, but it can vary depending on the manufacturer's recommendations. This means for every 40 or 50 parts of gasoline, there should be 1 part of oil. The recommended octane rating for the gas is generally 87 or higher, and the ethanol content should ideally be 10% or less.
