Safe Snow Removal Tips

With winter upon us and snow in the forecast again, here are some Snow Blower Safety Tips.
  • Dress properly to not only keep yourself warm but also safe. 
    • Wear boots with adequate traction.
    • Wear ear and eye protection.
    • Avoid long scarves or other loose clothing that could become caught in the snow blower's moving parts.
  • Before you begin -
    • Familiarize yourself with the manual and how to operate the snow blower, if new to using it.
    • Inspect the area for items that may be in your path like tree branches.
    • Check the snow blower's oil and gas level before each use.
    • Always start the machine outside.
  • While clearing snow -
    • Watch where you're aiming the snow and avoid directing it towards people, cars, windows, lampposts or other items that could be damaged by debris. 
    • Keep your hands and feet away from all moving parts.
    • Never override automatic shutoff features.
    • Operate the blower at a speed you're comfortable keeping up with. 
    • Never reach into the blower shoot with your hands for any reason, even when the machine is off. Use a stick to loosen debris or packed snow/ice. 
  •  Proper maintenance - 
    • Check the spark plug at the start of the season and replace if necessary.
    • Maintain proper tire pressure for best handling.
    • Run all of the gas out of the snow blower or drain it at the end of the season.
