How To Choose The Right Snow Thrower For The Job

How To Choose The Right Snow Thrower For The Job

It’s almost winter season, which means getting up to a fresh coat of snow more often than not. While it might be the most magical time of the year, for many of us homeowners it means a lot of additional work…

Depending on where you live, you might have to deal with shoveling your driveway or backyard almost every single day. However, what if we told you that this chore doesn’t have to be so painful? Just let the Snow Thrower do the heavy lifting for you!

In today’s post, we gathered all the information you need to Choose The Right Snow Thrower For The Job.

How To Choose The Right Snow Thrower For The Job

  1. Backyard/ driveway size – Bigger equipment doesn’t always equal to a better job. Electric snow blowers can clear light snow from sidewalks and small driveways. For smaller driveways, single-stage units can do the job. For driveways over 60 feet, choose a two- or three-stage unit.
  2. Surface type – For level surfaces, use auger-assisted, push-propelled models. Engine-driven wheels will work best for sloped terrain. If you need more traction, you can use tire chains with some models.
  3. Snowfall size – Up to 12” – Use an Electric Snow Thrower. 13” – Single-stage, 23.5” – Two-stage, and up to 21” – Three-stage.
  4. Snowfall kind – Single-stage units can handle light snow. To cut through wet, hard snow or ice, go for a two-stage unit. If you need to get the job done in less time, go for a three-stage snow thrower.
  5. Usage – Pick snow blowers that are well designed and easy to handle for an individual, such as this single-stage Honda snow thrower.

4 Benefits of Having A Snow Blower This Winter

4 Benefits of Having A Snow Blower This Winter

Looking for the best solution to avoid the dreadful winter task of removing the snow with a shovel and your bare hands? Let’s face it, using a shovel is not the most practical equipment for heavy snow removal. Especially, if you’re on the time crunch trying to get to work in the morning!

Maybe it’s time to work smart – not hard – and invest in a new snow blower? In our opinion, the right winter outdoor power equipment is every homeowner’s best friend! Why? We’ve got 4 reasons for you below.

4 Benefits of Having A Snow Blower

  1. Time efficiency. When you find your driveway stuck under a lot of snow, a snow blower will clear your way within minutes! No more standing in the freezing cold in the morning before work! Even just a small snow blower can remove up to 650 pounds of snow in 60 seconds! Amazing, huh?
  2. Safety. A snow blower is so efficient, it can effortlessly throw snow 20 to 30 feet away! Who doesn’t love a flawless and safe driveway in the winter, especially when you do a lot of walking?
  3. No more back or shoulder pain! Do we need to say more?
  4. No hustle! Operating a snow blower is so easy! Just start the machine and direct it in the right way!

As you can see, the snow blower can be a great investment for your home during the colder months. Worth remembering: Clear any debris within its path to avoid damage and to clear snow up and down rather than going across.

We highly recommend checking out our current snow blower specials. Also, keep an eye out for more amazing deals from Suburban Lawn Equipment as we update our offers often!

Survive a Power Outage with Honda Generators

Have you ever been stuck in the dark waiting long hours for the power to come back on? If you are wondering whether you need to purchase a back up generator this summer, think no more. The likelihood of experiencing a power outage in Delaware and the Tri-State area greatly increases during summer months, and it’s always smart to have a solution to a problem as soon as possible.

If this reason alone is not enough to convince you that owning a Honda Generator at your Delaware home is a necessity, we have 5 more benefits available, and we’re not afraid to share them!

Honda Generators

1.The Honda Generator gives you Power as soon as you need it

During a blackout, it becomes really hard to function normally in your household. Most appliances rely on electric to generate power. With a Honda Generator, you won’t ever have to worry about your food spoiling in the fridge or freezer…

2. The Honda Generator is Easily Accessible

Most standard models are equipped with wheels and a handle, making it completely mobile and ready to transport from one place to another.

3. The Honda Generator is User-Friendly

Anyone can operate the Honda Generator, no special training required. And at Suburban Lawn Equipment, we will give you the essential tools to get your generator up and running.

4.The Honda Generator is Great for Recreational Use

Camping and being one with nature is fun, but let’s face it. Most of us are so accustomed to the modern day lifestyle, owning a portable generator is like having a best friend by our side. It can be used to power a variety of appliances used in RV’s and on traditional campsites.

5. The Honda Generator Will Keep Your Business Running

What if your business loses power? A portable Honda Generator will save the day making it possible for you to get back to business right away!

Owning a portable generator is quite beneficial, not only for emergency situations but also for recreational use. Contact Suburban Lawn Equipment for all your outdoor power equipment needs. www.sublawneq.com • (302) 475-4300 or (302) 998-7700

Encouraging Report for the Landscape and Lawn Care Businesses Going into 2016

Landscape Business to Grow in 2016There is good news on the horizon for the Landscape and Lawn Care business. Many landscape contractors reported solid sales, greater profits and stable labor needs this last year. Thanks to growth in housing starts and commercial construction, the landscaping industry has significantly improved over the last few years and things look good all the way through 2020.

According to IBISWorld, a research firm in New York and Los Angeles, a steady increase in per capita disposable income and an aging population in need of a variety of home services will help the lawn care and landscaping industry to grow.

Over half of contractors supplying installation, maintenance, irrigation and lawn care services have reported an increase in sales for 2015 and many are optimistic for this year. Specialty services, such as hardscaping, tree care, pest control, lighting and natural/organic lawn care have also seen a significant growth this past year.

Many contractors are planning to raise prices. They have cited one reason as an increase in spending levels by customers, especially for outdoor living areas and water features. Many also indicated they had a growing need for non-field personnel.

On the down side, a shortage of qualified laborers has dampened the profit margin, as well as higher costs in health insurance, workers compensation and fuel prices. Other top concerns are low-ball competitors, regulations of or bans on water/irrigation and pesticide/fertilizer use.

Don’t be discouraged by this, as the number of landscaping businesses (according to IBISWorld) will grow a mere 2% or so per year over the next five years. When you compare this to 2010’s 4.5% growth rate, or even 2007’s 16% growth rate, things are looking pretty rosy for the established landscape companies.

What do you think this next year will bring for your landscaping business?

Share with us on Facebook what you think.

Your unit is set up and inspected by factory authorized technicians; plus we top it off with oil or gas at pickup.
