If you live where it snows, you know how important it is to be able to get in and out of your home after a snowstorm. Check to make sure your snow blower is working properly prior to the first snow storm, as you want to know before you need it. It would not be fun if you needed to get to a store after a snow storm and realized you couldn’t get the car out of the garage because of the snow, and a snow blower that does not work. Being prepared is always a good thing.
There are many aspects of the snow blower that needs to be maintained so check the owner’s manual for your specific unit, or take it in to be serviced. Some general guidance is to make sure the chain or belt is not too tight or too loose. You should also change the oil, and clean out the carbuerator, and store the unit with an empty gas tank.
Some units may also have an air filter that needs to be cleaned. Be extremely careful when working with this power tool and make sure you follow the safety precautions by the manufacturer.
