Safety Tips When Using Snow Throwers
Clear debris before using. It’s important to keep in mind that the snow thrower is a powerful piece of equipment and it will pick up debris or rocks in its path. To avoid damage clear the area before use.
Wear appropriate clothing. Clothing and other accessories are at risk of becoming entangled in the moving parts of the snow thrower. Avoid wearing long scarves, dangling jewelry, or any other form of loose clothing while operating this machinery.
Go with the wind. Whenever possible, do not fight the wind. Try to point the chute downwind so that it helps blow snow.
Avoid severe weather conditions. You should always avoid operating a snow thrower during heavy snowfall or minimal visibility. Waiting for heavy snowfall to pass is the recommended time to start using the snow thrower.
NEVER use hands/feet to clear a clog. If you experience a clog or blockage you should first shut off the equipment, and then use either a long clean out tool, stick or broom to dislodge snow or debris from the moving parts.

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
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.
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.
Snowfall size – Up to 12” – Use an Electric Snow Thrower. 13” – Single-stage, 23.5” – Two-stage, and up to 21” – Three-stage.
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.
