Quick Start Guide – Snow Blower

  • Always use fresh gasoline in your snow blower
  • Treat it with gasoline stabilizer to protect fuel systems
  • Change the oil after 50 hours of use and at the end of the season
  • Clean the spark plug, re-gap it every year and change it as needed
  • Start your snow blower once a month to circulate the oil and the fuel to keep stabilizer in the fuel system even in the summer time
  • Always make sure you read the instructions and follow the safety precautions before operating a snow blower and completing any maintenance..
  • They are noisy machines so wear hearing protection and safety glasses while operating these machines.
  • Wear boots with excellent traction to avoid slipping while operating a snowblower
  • Light snow is easier to deal with than heavy snow. You may want to clear your driveway several times to avoid dealing with lots of heavy snow

Clear Your Driveway

  • Make sure that your driveway is clear of rocks, twigs, and stones before using your snowblower for the first time
  • Point the chute away from people, objects, and buildings. A piece of ice ejected at high speed can really hurt and also break windows etc.
  • Always shut the engine off before doing any work on the machine including clearing snow away from the auger and the impeller, you can lose an arm very easily by accident.
  • Clear all snow away from the impeller and the blades when you are finished to avoid it freezing in place, after first shutting the engine off.

Many people would just prefer to hire a snow clearing company to get rid of the snow. Although it is an extra expense, having someone else do this work means you do not have to store the snow blower and maintain it. From an economic perspective, owning your own snow blower and doing your own maintenance is far cheaper than hiring someone to do the work for you. But if you need to pay hundreds of dollars for maintenance, or purchase a new snow blower every couple of years because you did not look after it, then hiring someone to clear the snow for you is the best way to proceed.
