The Vortex 2490 three-stage snow thrower takes snow throwing to the next level.  Not only does the Vortex 2490 three-stage snow thrower come equipped with Touch 'n Turn® power steering, heated hand grips and Just One Hand® operation, it features a third stage of snow removal.  The three-stage process is made possible with the new 12" inch accelerator that spins at 10 times the speed of the Xtreme™ augers, breaking down the heaviest, wettest snow before throwing it out of the high-impact, clog-resistant polymer chute.  The large X-Trac™ tires provide extra traction when breaking through barriers of snow left at the bottom of your driveway.
