Do you get the feeling that your snow thrower is going to come in handy this winter? I know I do. Those of us who have already had to clear snow this season know that there are many long, cold, and frosty months ahead of us. One of the worst things we can do when we rely so heavily on equipment, like snow throwers, to help us maintain our home and property is to neglect that equipment. In order to take proper care of the snow thrower, it’s important to follow the instructions for regular maintenance that can be found in the owner’s manual. It’s also a good idea to take that extra step of covering the snow thrower with a protective snow thrower cover when it’s not in use. When we take proper care of our equipment, we can be sure that it will take proper care of us — especially when we’re hip deep in that white stuff.
