Get Your Equipment in Tune

Winter is coming — is your snow blower ready to get to work? With the cold, snowy months just around the corner, it’s important to make sure that your arsenal of anti-winter equipment is tuned up and ready to go.

SnowblowerAfter a few months of lying dormant in the garage, break out your snow blowers, your generators, loaders, power brushes and anything else you might need in case of inclement weather, and get to work. There are a number of things you can do in your own garage to make sure that everything is in working order before it gets too cold.

Changing the oil and replacing fuel filters where necessary is a good start. You should also inspect blades and scrapers for wear, and replace any parts that are too dull, dented or dinged to use. Be sure to also check the spark plugs and clean off the dirt and grime. Don’t forget to lubricate necessary moving parts that are greased, as well. If you notice rust, you can use a wire brush to remove the buildup and reapply paint.

Once you’ve made the necessary tune-ups, make sure you can get everything up and running smoothly.
