For many homeowners across the country, the time to store away the snow thrower is at hand. Even if you hope to never see that snow thrower again — at least until next winter — resist the urge to push it to the back of the garage or shed and bid it a hasty farewell.
To be sure that your snow thrower works just as well for you next winter as it did this winter, take a moment to prepare it for long months of hibernation by covering it with a snow thrower cover. That one small step prevents months of dust and dirt from settling on your snow thrower and its components. This, in turn, reduces the amount of time and effort it takes to maintain your snow thrower and ultimately extends its life.
