Troy-Bilt 2490 3 Stage Vortex Snow Thrower – Review

Last year in Chicago we got hammered with snow, it was insane.  So this year I tried to be proactive and get a snow blower before the season started.  Well we had absolutely no snow until February 1st when we got 19 inches. It turned out to be the third biggest snow storm Chicago has ever seen. Luckily we had the new Troy-Bilt Vortex 2490 to tackle this massive storm.  Snow blowers come in all shapes and sizes and you really need to choose one that fits your needs.  For a small walkway with light snow storms this is...

Troy-Bilt Squall 2100 208cc 21″ Single-Stage Gas Snow Blower – Review

Well well, it finally snowed here in Chicago.  We have had no snow until now.  We got 6″ , time to test out the Troy-Bilt Squall 2100 that you can get at Lowes.  The 2100 is a single stage snow thrower which is good for smaller drives and light to moderate snow fall.  The main feature that we liked was the 208cc 4 cycle motor, no more smoke and having to mix oil.  The blower clears a respectable 21″ path and even has drift cutters to slice through drifts.  It comes mostly assembled and you have to unfold the...
