Here Are The Top 10 Best Electric Snow Blowers 2019
This list presenting the latest electric snow blowers includes only snow blowers that satisfy these specs:
- They must be corded electric snow blowers, which excludes battery-operated cordless snow blowers, for which we also have a specific best of list -- It also includes some dual-stage models that are fit for a gravel driveway
- They must be bigger than the power shovel category (see specific list), made mostly of narrow electric snow blowers
- We determined that, to be considered an electric snow blower, a model must have an intake of at least 15 inches
With an average star rating of 4.5 stars as we were checking out its reviews, the WEN 5662 Snow Blaster is an electric snow blower that's obviously made for those who don't want to deal with gas and oil -- nor backaches from shoveling snow away from the driveway.
Many of its reviewers (We sampled 535 of its reviews as of this AlphaChooser write-up) praise it for working just as intended, with one particular satisfied buyer saying that it easily removes about 10 inches of snow at a time and clears powdery snow completely . Another buyer gave it a perfect rating of 5 stars for serving as a nice little alternative to gas-powered ones, which tend to be much heavier (Gas snow blowers are usually made heavy steel) and more tricky to setup. One buyer even called this a great little machine. Some users, however, cautioned that this WEN model is almost entirely made of plastic, which means that it falls into the flimsy category, insofar as snow blowers are concerned. Other users mentioned that it does not overheat as much as some closely-comparable models, even after 40 minutes of continuous usage. Its relatively compact body also means that it's easier to store away than most of its rivals in this category.
On the flip side, some unhappy buyers berate the WEN 5662 for not being up to the task, most complaints revolving around the fact that it does not deal with compacted and slushy snow as well as it does with dry snow -- a somewhat typical weakness among electric snow blowers. This notwithstanding, its mere 7 percent 1-star review ratio as of this analysis was well within the acceptable range for snow blowers of its kind.
In the end, our shopping algorithm, which scoured our sources for 14387 reviews for electric snow blowers, considers the WEN 5662 Snow Blaster as Alphachooser's best electric snow blower 2019 (Learn how we rank items), and that's with a confidence level of 99 (More on confidence levels).

Equipped with most of the features offered by its Snow Joe SJ620 sibling, which is also featured here on AlphaChooser, with the addition of a 20W halogen headlight (largely for those who end up doing snow pickups during nighttime), the Snow Joe SJ621 boasts an aggregated star rating of 4.5 stars. Here's what we learned after reading through 781 of its user reviews:
At the outset, users generally love its performance and ease of operation -- a certain satisfied buyer mentioned that it deals with 10-12 inches of snow effortlessly . Another user called it a light and excellent machine, adding that this Snow Joe unit is quite easy to use and can even be easily lifted and stored away with one hand. Several other buyers reported that it handles blizzards without any problem, but noted that it is by no means an effort-free electric snow blower -- the wheel's aren't powered, so you still have to push it around, although that situation sounds a lot easier than shoveling, not to mention that it makes for a decent alternative to heavy, gas-powered snow blowers.
Some of its not-so-enthused buyers ran into trouble dealing with an extension cord, while a few others cautioned that the constant vibration eventually loosens its plastic bolt tighteners. In fact, its plastic material might be something to watch out for altogether, although, at the end of the day, its ratio of 59 percent 5-star ratings to a measly 7 percent 1-star ratings (as of 2018 Q4) still sounds reassuring in our book.
All said, with the help of our automated review-crawler, which rummaged through a grand total of 14387 reviews for snow blowers under this category, we can confidently say that the Snow Joe SJ621 is one of the top 10 electric snow blowers available, winding up as Alphachooser's second best electric snow blower 2019.

The Snow Joe SJ620 is a corded electric snow blower (also see our list of the best cordless snow blowers ) that received a lot of positive feedback (based on most of the 1490 reviews that we sampled) for its relatively-compact body, which is probably why the brand pitches it as an ideal machine for quick snow-pickups on sidewalks and driveways -- something a lot of its users agree with, with one particular reviewer noting that it hits some kind of a sweet spot as far as its price-to-capability ratio is concerned. Other users even go as far as to call it an absolute workhorse, in spite of its relatively small size .
As for its performance, the SJ620, which, by the way, comes with an 18-inch intake width and a 10-inch intake height, according to some users, removes 8-11 inches of snow without a problem. For some, however, power is apparently one of this Snow Joe model's weakest points, wet and compacted snow being its true tests -- though most electric snow blowers are meant to use on just-fallen snow. However, one user even reported that its blades stop spinning even when dealing with non-heavy snow. Another user grumbled about this unit being somewhat junky, owing to the fact that the SJ620 unit they received did not move any snow whatsoever. A few other users say that it's a bit of a workout to push around, although most of us here at AlphaChooser would rather take the exercise than the backache from manually shoveling snow out of the driveway. Keep in mind that only 6 percent of the reviews we sampled were 1-star rants, while more than half of them were perfect 5-star reviews (It has an average rating of 4 stars), which is a highly-encouraging ratio for an electric snow blower.
So, when it's all said and done, the Snow Joe SJ620, according to our review-crawling algorithm, which breezed through 14387 reviews for snow blowers of this kind, is not quite the absolute best, but, being an Alphachooser good choice, it is nevertheless one of the top 10 electric snow blowers out there today.
