Power Smart DB7651 Reviews

The Power Smart DB7651 chain of gasoline-powered snow blowers offers plenty of versions to consider. But the differences are far outweighed by the likenesses between them. That's lucky. It means it is not a dread to keep them straight and pick the one best for you personally.

It's no surprise that the important difference involving the different Power Smart DB7651 versions is the size. They range in the 24-inch wide DB7651-24 through the DB7651-26 to the DB7651-28. It ain't difficult to guess the width of the latter two models.

But, there are several other, less fundamental but still important differences between them. Not least is a concurrent group of DB7651A versions to investigate. So, let us dig into the details and find out what these men have to offer...

DB7651-24: 24-Inch Clearing Width

The DB7651-24 is the smallest of the snow blowers in this line. But the power to clear a route 24 inches wide and up to 21 inches deep places this model directly into the mid range.

That depth figure could be a little misleading though, so let us look at it briefly a little closer. The scoop size is one thing. But the auger - 12 inches in diameter - is what actually gets the biggest influence on how much snow is chewed in a single pass.

True, that snow needs to have somewhere to go and it will help to have a high intake height. No impeller and chute combo can shove snow infinitely quickly. Nevertheless, do not be misled that you will eat through an almost two-foot high berm as readily as you would something half that height.

That said, the 208cc LCT 4-cycle engine with this model supplies considerable power to drive that auger and impeller without making you do all the job. Combined with four forward and two reverse speeds you shouldn't have any trouble with anything short of ice-encrusted mounds. Even those should not be too big a price because the auger is all steel.
