How long should a snowblower last?
Hereof, how long do Craftsman snow blowers last?
If you invest in a machine from the lower price range of things (from manufacturers like Craftsman) you’ll be able to expect anywhere from 10 to 15 years of use from the machine.
Similarly, how many inches of snow before you use a snowblower? two inches
Also to know, what is the best time of year to buy a snowblower?
September and August are said to be the best months by Consumer Reports to purchase a snow blower (if price is your main criteria). While they advised on exceptions to this, the most can be saved on snow blowers in early fall/late summer.
Is it worth buying a snowblower?
A snow service would have run me about $500 a season or $6,000 over the same 12 years. So if it takes you 20 hours to deal with snow each winter with a shovel, or 10 hours with a snow blower, how much are those extra 10 hours worth to you? It would cost my neighbor about $57 more per season to use a snow blower.
