Looking for an affordable snowblower that is easy to maneuver, yet can handle significant snowfall? The Snapper Intermediate Dual Stage should definitely be a consideration, as it meets all the qualifications of a tough, powerful snowblower in a compact package along with a reasonable sticker price to boot.

As a two-stage snowblower, the Snapper Intermediate Dual Stage has a reasonable 24-inch clearing width combined with an impressive 19.75 intake. So you no longer have to make two passes down the driveway when you get 18 inches of snow – bonus! Weighing in at 175 pounds, the friction drive system comes in very handy and offers 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds.

The Briggs & Stratton 4-cycle engine comes with a push-button electric start, plus a recoil start just in case. Additionally the .75 gallon tank means more time clearing and less time refilling. The gas tank comes with a gas-preserving cap, so you don’t have to worry about gas spoiling over the summer.

Able to throw snow up to 38 feet, the snow chute can rotate 200 degrees. Those who like features can choose to add them on: like headlights, drift cutters, and a block heater – but if you prefer to save cash you can buy the basic model instead. Whichever you choose, the Snapper Intermediate Dual Stage delivers with a quality design and a powerful motor that will power through deep drifts and wet snow all winter long – for as long as you need it to.
