Snow shovels, snow blowers, ice choppers, snow pushers and snow plows are some good tools to use for snow removal. Additionally, power scrapers and snow-melting cables get rid of stubborn snow and ice with little effort.
Snow blowers and shovels work for light to heavy snow removal jobs and come in manual- or electric-powered designs. Electric snow blowers handle snowfalls up to 10 inches high, while two-staged gas-powered blowers can deal with up to 30-inch deep drifts. Use snow-melting cables that melt ice and snow on cemented sections of roofs, sidewalks and driveways. Battery-powered snow and ice scrapers use heat to melt ice away.
