What are some uses of a brute snow thrower?

Quick Answer

Brute snow throwers are meant to move large amounts of snow from driveways or sidewalks. While these machines are made to move across any slippery or icy surface, they are not recommended for yards or uneven terrain. They work best on driveways, sidewalks, walkways, patios or any other level flat surface that may be covered with snow, notes Brute.

The Brute snow throwers come in 27- and 29-inch widths, which help make clearing the snow faster then a smaller model would be. The throwers are made by Briggs and Stratton and come equipped with their electric starts, which improve performance in cold winter months. The engine for the 27-inch snow thrower is called the 1150 Snow Series and has six forward speeds and two reverse speeds. The 29-inch model has a 1350 Snow Series engine, but has the exact same features as the 27-inch, just in a larger-sized engine.

Both sizes come with headlights so that clearing the driveway or walkway early in the morning before school or work is much easier and safer. It also helps in the evenings after work so that users can get ahead of the next day's snowfall. The controls are easy to use one handed and the machine itself is also made to be operated with one hand, so that the other is free for the controls, according to Brute.
