I use my single stage to clean up after the 2 stage
I think a single stage blower is great for light dry snows and those couple of inches where a 2 stage fails and isn't really meant to.
Depending on the temps, the time of day night that I use my 2 stage, and the expected forecast, after I use my 2 stage, I use my single stage to clean down to the concrete on my walkway from the driveway to the door and the public sidewalk. Because of this, I can raise the scraper bar a little higher, 2 paint sticks high, to avoid some of the raised sidewalk bumps.
