Test and Service Your Equipment

If you currently own a single-stage or two-stage snow blower, make sure to run the engine at least once to ensure it's ready for the storm ahead. If you run into trouble, try our tips below:

  • Check fuel and oil levels on all of your equipment and fill tanks with their respective fluids until full.

  • Stock-up on extra fluid reserves in the event your equipment uses more fuel than initially expected. 

  • Old gas can clog your carburetor. Maintain your snow blower for storms to come with fuel stabilizer.
