Snow shoveling is back-breaking work, and it's the last thing anyone wants to do on a dark and frigid evening after work or, worse, before work when you're already running late.

Unfortunately for the snowbound states, getting rid of the white stuff day after day is a necessity. But that doesn't mean it has to be as much of a hassle as it used to be. With the right equipment, ridding the snow from your driveway can be, if not fun, at least less of a chore than it has any right to be.

If you want a reliable old standard when it comes to outdoor maintenance, Incentive Concepts carries an entire line of Troy-Bilt snow blowers. One of the most frustrating things about moving snow is that sometimes it gets wet, which is when machinery bogs down. That's when you need a two-stage blower, and Troy-Bilt's Storm 2420 Two-Stage Snow Thrower is just the ticket.

It works in two stages, first busting up the snow and then flinging it where it won't get in the way of your daily commute. 

The Troy-Bilt Storm 2420 is designed to devour any type of snow, of any type of consistency -- both light, dry champagne and mucky cement-style slush. This machine will make short work of the mess on your favorite employee's driveway.    

Not everyone needs that sort of power though. If your employee only has to deal with an occasional snowy buildup, then the Troy-Bilt Squall 208E Snow Blower is a far more convenient option. This single-stage snow blower is lightweight and easy to maneuver, so it's not a problem to maneuver it to and from its storage space when winter storms come calling. 

And while the Squall 208E isn't meant for deep, heavy snow, it's absolutely perfect for accumulations of up to six inches.

If Troy-Bilt isn't your thing, then check out Ariens' line of snow throwers, available through Power Sales. For those trapped in snowy pileups, there's the Deluxe 28 Dual-Stage 28" Snow Blower (pictured). This powerful machine can really cut through deep drifts on uneven terrain. It has large tires with deep treads for grip, high clearance, and an engine designed to chew up chunks of clumpy snow and spit it well away from your driveway.

Need something lighter? The Ariens Path-Pro 21" Single-Stage Blower will fill those needs. Easy to start and easy to operate, it'll clear snow piled up to 8" high.
