Similar to the Snow Joe SJ623E, the the popular Toro 38381 features a 15 amp motor and can clear an 18-inch-wide path. It also gives you more control over how you throw your snow: A lever on the chute allows you to change the direction of the output, and a zip deflector lets you to manage the height of the output by tilting the chute and locking in the angle. If you live in the upper latitudes, where melting is a glacier-slow process, this option makes it easier to pile up the snow until spring. The ergonomically designed handle offers various comfort levels for frequent and infrequent users. Plus, the blower only weighs 25 pounds, saving you some effort lugging your machine in and out of the garage. You’ll get an additional two inches of snow-clearing depth (for a foot total) from each pass along the driveway.
