For homeowners in colder climates, the toughest part of the year is approaching. That part of the year is known as “winter,” and it’s associated with heavy snowfalls, blistering nor’easters, and the kind of inconvenience that people in more mild climates prefer only to appreciate from a distance. For these people, the Squall series of Snow Throwers from Troy-Bilt is an indispensable tool in the battle against Mother Nature’s coldest, iciest punches.
The Squall series offers two models that are both compact, able to easily clean large spaces, and perfect for homeowners who have limited space to store power equipment all year long. While the entry-level model is efficient and compact, the slightly more feature-packed Squall 2100 presents an opportunity for more efficient snow clearing, driving, and operating, for customers in tougher climates or those who simply like to make their job easier until spring arrives.
Serious Features in a Compact Form Factor
At first glance, it’s easy to underestimate the power and versatility of the Troy-Bilt Squall Snow Throwers. Both the 210 and the 2100 models are as compact a snowblower as the market currently offers, but they both pack a surprising number of features under the hood. Or, in this case, under the chute.
Both Squall models come with a 21-inch clearing width and a 13-inch intake height. That makes them well-suited to places that receive significant snowfall amounts at one time, and greatly enhances their practicality during the traditionally snowiest months of January, February, and March. The 210 comes with a 123cc OHV Troy-Bilt engine, giving it a significant power boost over the smaller Flurry models offered by the company. The slightly more mature 2100 model ups that engine to a 208cc OHV variant, capable of slightly more power under the most demanding conditions.
Of particular note is the standard push-button start that is available for the 2100 Squall model, giving it an added amount of convenience over its lower-priced counterpart in the series. The more feature-packed 2100 model also comes with an ergonomically designed handle that’s a breeze to use, and it’s an electric/recoil snowblower with a single-stage engine that makes gas-oil mixing a thing of the past. All told, both the 210 and 2100 model are excellent snowblowers. The 2100 model, though, gets an added push that makes it perfect for more demanding environments.
Available Models: Which One is Right for Each Type of Consumer?
As with any piece of power equipment, it can be hard for many buyers to decide between the available models. In this case, however, choosing between the Squall 210 and the Squall 2100 should be rather straightforward for most people. For those who live in moderately challenging winter environments, and don’t mind the traditional pull-start operation of the average snowblower, the 210 is a great choice. It combines excellent affordability with a compact size and an impressively large chute for its product class.
The Squall 2100 represents an added amount of power, with a slightly more powerful engine and one that makes mixing oil and gas a thing of the past. Its foldable, ergonomic handle makes it even more ideal in space-crunched environments. Its large intake, when paired with the more powerful 208cc OHV engine, makes it even better for large snowstorms and deeper accumulations, so those in especially snow-plagued climates will want to choose the 2100 over the more spry Squall 210 model offered by Troy-Bilt.
