Prepare Your Snowblower For Winter

Former Poet Laureate, Donald Hall once said “November in New England is for putting Fall to sleep”. We agree with this statement. November is also a time that we have seen the first snowfall of the year. That means by now you have probably gotten your winter clothes out and have started preparing for snow. One thing that is often overlooked to prepare for winter, is very important, and that is your snowblower. Make sure to follow these steps this winter to ensure you wont be stuck shoveling with the heavy stuff starts to fall in December and beyond:

Gas Lawnmowers- If you have a gas powered lawnmower, hopefully you removed the fuel when you put it away for good last Spring. If not, use a siphon or turkey baster to remove old fuel. Fill the tank with gas and top it off with a fuel stabilizer that can be found at your local hardware store.

Check Your Tires- Nothing is worse than getting ready to use your snowblower, only to realize you have flat tires. Make sure your snowblower’s tires are properly inflated to the manufactures recommenced PSI.

Mechanical Aspects- Make sure your spark plug  is working properly. It is cheap to replace a sparkplug, and you’ll be sorry if you didn’t take the time to do it prior to the first snow fall. Also, take a look at the various belts on your snowblower just like you would your car. If you see any that are frayed, you’ll want to replace those, as they could break with the first heavy snow.

If you have gotten rid of your snowblower all together recently, or have just decided, “the heck with it”, when it comes to snow removal, get in touch with Lola’s Landscape. We offer both commercial and residential snow removal programs!
