What types of snow brushes are there?
As a manufacturer,
we developed many types of snow brushes in the past years, to satisfy different demands from different customers.
And we still keep innovative in this range, with high enthusiasm in designing new brushes with multiple functions and appearances.
There are totally 4 types:
Type 1, One-piece short handle snow brush, with a simple design
This is the classic and typical snow brush type, usually, the length is between 30-70cm, with a straight snow brush head, planted polyester soft fiber. The handle length is about 10-35cm, and there is also usually a small ice scraper on the other end.
This snow brush has its obvious advantages.
First, it’s very light and small, which makes it very portable, and saves space. People can put one such brush in their trunk or cockpit, do not take up a lot of space.
Second, the smaller snow brush is an economic option with competitive prices. People can buy this brush at a lower price, even if the next winter, people can not find it, it’s not a big loss, and they can afford to buy a new one for another year.
Type 2, Telescopic snow brush with simple design and function.
This type of snow brush has an extendable handle, usually, the poles are in aluminum material, because aluminum has a lighter weight, and this is very important for snow brush as a hand tool.
The poles are designed with two sections, one is bigger, another is smaller, and they are connected with a plastic device.
There are two types of devices, one is with a switch function.
You can loosen or tight the device by switching and rotating it. Another is with button function. When you press the button, the handle can be extended or shrink as per your request, when you release the button, the length will be fixed.
And usually, this type of snow brush is stronger than the above-mentioned short small one, also the price is a little bit higher. But still very portable, our factory also accepts customized lengths according to your request.
Type 3, Premium snow brush with luxury multiple functions.
The premium option is designed with more function, except for the telescopic handle, some of the brush heads are 360° rotatable, with this pivoting brush head, people can brush away the snow on the car at any angle they want, making the work more flexible and easier.
Also, the sizes are bigger, the telescopic range is usually among 36”-48”, about 90-128cm.
This length enables the brush to reach higher places where hard to reach by small brushes, so it’s commonly used and purchased for SUVs, vans, trucks, and boats.
Moreover, the material is heavier and more durable, handle materials can be customized with aluminum or stainless steel, or coated iron in customized colors with electroplating technology to improve the appearance attracting.
Some customers make the handle in a curved shape or make the metal poles fully covered with EVA foam, people will feel more comfortable and won’t be cold when holding on to the foam grips.
Type 4, New snow broom with soft EVA head.
This is a new type getting popular in recent years, the advantage is from the big EVA foam broom head.
First, the thick board can hold more snow at once, do a better job when the snow is heavy. Secondly, the soft foam is non-scratch, and won’t scratch the car paint.
At the same time, the handle has two options, you can make it with a telescopic aluminum pole, or in separate sections.
The separate sections are more popular among the e-commerce clients because the set can be packed in a smaller volume, for example, in a compact color box or mailbox.
There is another ingenious design. On the back of the broom head, there are two pairs of toggle clips, when the handle is disassembled after using, people can assemble it to the broom head by the clips. It’s so much helpful to save the storage space and save a whole set.
And now there is also a new version with LED light on the snow broom head, enabling people to do the job in the evening or in dark places.
That’s all about all of the four types of snow brushes and brooms.
We can not say which type is the best, it all depends on what you need, what price is acceptable for your market and target consumers, and the brand preference. The different brush is fit for different jobs.
