Freshen up the juice: Gasoline gets stale over time leaving harmful deposits in the fuel system that could damage the engine, making it important to change at the beginning of the season to ensure efficiency. Avoid fuel with ethanol and add fuel stabilizer in the gas container to keep the fuel fresh longer.
Check tire pressure: Tires that are properly inflated will increase the blower’s maneuverability, making it easy for you to tackle any type of snow you are faced with.
Wash up: Keep your snow blower in top shape by diligently cleaning away any dirt. A buildup of grime on your machine can impede its performance. Using a degreaser and letting it sit for 15 minutes before removing will allow you to wipe away dirt easily. Use the clear out tool to remove any ice or snow clogged.
Tighten the bolts: Make sure all the nuts and bolts are tight before going out to clear snow. Snow blowers can vibrate a great deal and ensuring that there are no loose parts will make sure that nothing falls off while operating.
Change that spark plug: If the spark plug is in good condition it will make starting your machine that much easier. A new spark plug will help ignite the fuel air mixture within the engine and ensure you’re not left in the cold.
