Ego Snow Blower Review [Model: 21 inch 56 Volt Single Stage]
Even though the winter brings with it the joy and cheer of the holidays, it also brings along mounds of snow that fills your walkways and driveways. Shoveling the snow out of the yard is a task that many would not look forward to as it requires a lot of hard work and cause reasonable pain to the back.
In this Ego snow blower review, we are going to look into the much talked about "best electric snow blower", the all new ego power+.
The Ego Power+ Snow Blower Review
As a single stage snow blower, the Ego Power+ SNT2100 is built to handle low to moderate snow falls. Although cordless and powered by two 56-volt ARC Lithium™ batteries combined with Peak Power Technology, it is still regarded to be powerful as any gas snow blowers in the market today, able to handle light to moderately heavy wet snow.
The high-efficiency brushless motor has a 21-inch wide intake that can plow through snow up to 8 inches in height. And since this is a single stage blower, it is advised to be used on smooth pavement, not recommended for uneven gravel paths.
The SNT2100 comes with variable auger speed and you can easily adjust how far you want the snow to be thrown. There is also an easy to use chute adjustment which acts as a directional control lever, located on the handle to provide a 180-degree rotation. This helpful feature helps to easily remove the snow all around the walkway.
Another interesting aspect of this snow blower is the 35 ft throwing capacity. You can manually adjust the height of the snow being thrown too. High powered headlights are built in this snow blower, these come in pretty handy as it creates convenience and extra option for you to clear snow under low light conditions.
With the two 5.0Ah batteries, it can last you up to 1 hour of operation. The charging time is a swift with their Rapid Charger. Within 45 minutes, you can have a fully charged battery, ready to start with another session of snow plowing. The two batteries and Rapid Charger are also included in the package.

Ego Snow Blower Review (Specs + Features)
1. EFFICIENT BRUSHLESS ELECTRIC MOTOR
Compared to motors powered by gas, electric motors can be much more powerful and deliver a greater performance. Electric motors are much more reliable than gas motors as they come with the high power to weight ratio combined with incredible speed and power.
With such power and speed, this self propelled blower is perfectly capable to handle heavy workload in clearing large quantities of snow. The motor is specially designed to be lightweight to make the snow blower weight almost less than 70 pounds making it easy to maneuver along the snow.
The light weight design also enables the batteries getting overworked and provide a better performance than gas powered motors.
2. EXCELLENT RAPID CHARGER
This snow blower comes with an option to choose whether to add the rapid charger along with the battery setup with the snow blowers. Since the rapid chargers are compatible with many ego products, and if you already own other tools that comes with a rapid charger, you can use those chargers for the snow blower too. The rapid charger is ultimately a quick chargers that takes only under 45 minutes to charge a full battery.
But unlike other ego products, this electric snow blower is much powerful and hence needs at least a couple of batteries of 5Ah or 7.5Ah based on the amount of snow clearing you need to do. These batteries can easily withhold power for almost an hour.
3. EASY BUTTON START
The all new ego leaf blower snow comes with a pretty much simple start method as all you need to do is push the button and the snow blower comes to life instantly. Forget all the hardship of pulling through a cord and wrenching your shoulders to start the snow blower.
4. EXCELLENT CHUTE ADJUSTMENT
This machine also comes with an excellent chute adjustment feature that allows you to work without any gap.
The easy to use chute adjustment provides for a 180 degree rotation to easily remove snow all around your walkway.
There is also a manual adjustment feature to control the height of the snow thrown from the blower. Another interesting aspect of this snow blower is the 35 ft throwing capacity which is excellent when compared to other snow blowers in the market as it helps to get rid of the snow to a long distance.
5. WIDER INTAKE
This ego blower comes with a much wider intake when compared to other snow blowers.
The 21 inch intake can easily handle upto 7-8 inches of snow and the powerful electric motor makes the task of snow clearance easy and quick.
6. MULTI SPEED AUGER
When it comes to single stage snow blowers, the efficiency of the machine is determined by the movement of the auger. Most of the single stage blowers come with a single speed, but the ego snow blower comes with multiple speed that helps in controlling the distance of the throw. The varying speeds also allows you to control how quickly you can finish the job of clearing out the job.
7. HIGH POWERED LED HEADLIGHTS
When many single stage blowers doesn’t feature headlights to allow for removing snow in dark or low light conditions, the EGO Snowblower comes with a couple of attractive LED headlights in the front that allows you to work on removing the snow even during the night. You never know there may be an emergency to move out during the night and the LED lights can come in handy to remove all the snow from your driveway and drive out quickly.
