    How to Make Sure Your Snowblower Starts When You Need It

    Posted on November 27, 2012 by MarkAdams



    This morning was the first time that I saw frost on the rear window of my this season and that made me realize that, as the George Martin books and HBO series Game of Thrones like to say, “Winter is Coming.“ With winter comes snow, and a lot of it sometimes! So learning to correctly clean, service and maintain your snowblower means you won’t get snowed in or break your back shoveling this winter. Follow these tips to take care of your snowblower in the off season toextend its life and boost efficiency.

    Maintenance Tips for Snowblowers
    Keep your snowblower in good condition by checking the oil levels each time you use and adding more as needed. Check the bolts and shear pins frequently for proper tightness and change the spark plug every season. Inspect the skid shoes and snowblower shave plates and replace them as soon as you see signs of damages. After using your snowblower, run the auger on a dry surface to eliminate moisture on the unit. This will prevent the auger or impeller from freezing.

    Revitalize Your System with Start Your Engines!®
    If you’re like most snowblower owners, you rarely used your machine last year, if at all, due to warm winter weather. The longer your snowblower goes without use, the more likely it is that the gasoline in the fuel system has gone bad and could potentially be clogging critical fuel line passageways. Start Your Engines!® removes the gunk that clogs fuel line passageways during storage and moves through your snowblower’s fuel system to the engine. If your snowblower is idling, stalling or not starting at all, pour Start Your Engines!® Fuel System Revitalizer directly into the fuel tank and watch your snowblower start up fast. It’s the easiest way to revitalize your snowblower’s fuel system, while saving hundreds of dollars in repair bills.

    Routine Service for Your Snowblower
    The rubber paddles on your snowblower will eventually wear out and require replacement. A sure sign that the paddles need replacing is if the snowblower shoots snow forward instead of through the chute. Replace the paddles once they start to show wear and tear to keep your snowblower in prime working order.
