When you need a two-stage snowblower, but your budget is limited, the PowerSmart DB72024PA gas snow blower is a great buy.
The 212cc 4-cycle overhead valve engine has two start options, the electric start or manual and will start at a temperature as cold as minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Four forward and two reverse speeds help maneuver the snowblower in different snow conditions with the versatile drive system. The power-assist turns the machine in the opposite direction without requiring manual strength. The engine cuts a path of 24 inches in snow up to 21 inches deep. If you want to cut through deeper snow, you can attach drift cutters to the top of the chute.
Although the snowblower doesn’t have a throttle, the two levers are as effective. The auger doesn’t automatically start working when the operator starts the engine. It engages by pressing the lever on the left handle — the lever to the right drives the wheels that move the snowblower forward.
The heavy-duty steel frame and auger system should last a while. The 10-inch auger moves the snow through the impeller up and out the discharge chute. Throwing distance is up to 40 feet. The 180 degrees chute rotation adjusts to throw the snow in the direction the operator decides.
Thirteen-inch deep tread pneumatic snow tires move the snowblower over slippery and uneven terrain. The metal skid shoes can adjust to accommodate different heights and surfaces, which makes it possible to clear snow from paved or gravel driveways.
