Consumers on the other hand can use light or moderate duty machines depending on how much snow you receive each winter and how deep the drifts are.

Storage of any of these machines should be considered. Many people have one or two cars and space for only one or two cars in their garage. Unfortunately builders do not allow for much more than space for a car in today’s homes. A snow blower takes up a lot of room and many people just do not have the space unless they leave their car outside on the driveway. This is a common thing for many people since their garage is filled with all of the other outdoor maintenance activity equipment that a lot of consumers accumulate. We find that many families will have two cars and will park their cars on he driveway or even on the street to make it easier to navigate around.
In the winter time many cities and towns have bylaws in place that prevent parking on the street during the evening and night time hours to make the clearing of streets easier. This is an inconvenience for many people, however it is the only way to arrange for narrow streets to be cleared of snow.
