One of the indications of the effort needed in maintaining your snow blower is nothing else but its own size. As a rule of thumb, a larger snow blower requires more maintenance. The most crucial time to inspect your snow blower is when you are going to put it in the store for half a year, or until the next winter. Different brand requires different kind of maintenance that is usually described in the user’s manual.
There are three main categories that need specific maintenance, they are, engine, control and rotating parts. The following is the general guidelines for each of the main parts in the snow blower.
Fuel Stabilizer – Use fuel stabilizer before the snow blower is put away until next winter. The fuel stabilizer is to be added to the fuel tank and run the engine for a couple of minutes.
Oil Change – As with other machines, the oil needs a regular check up. Refer to the manufacturer’s manual for the suitable type of oil.
Spark Plug Replacement – Remember to change the plug annually. During the installation, oil should be put into the plug’s hole and the gap should be ensured properly. Refer to the manual for the torque needed for installation.
Lubrication – All bearing parts in the snow blower need regular lubrication as mentioned in the manual.
Controls – Control mechanism of the snow blower is unique to the type. Regular tightening is needed for the parts involved and if situation persist, the worn parts need to be replaced.
Belts – There are belts in the drive system that needs periodical inspection in order to ensure proper adjustment. Any worn belts need to be replaced, usually after a couple of years.
Blades – There are many types of blades used in the snow blower. They are made from plastic, rubber, and metal. Therefore the maintenance of blades is specific to the type of snow blower. It is necessary to refer to the manual for detailed guidelines in maintaining your snow blower’s blades.
Likewise your car, the running time of the snow blower needs to be logged in order to ensure proper maintenance. As mentioned before, the type of snow blower will determine the maintenance steps. In general, an electric snow blower needs minimal maintenance as compared to the gas snow blower. Detailed steps are always available in the manufacturer’s manual.
