In many cases, replacing a worn part on your snowblower will cost much less than having to buy a new snowblower outright. Depending on the model of your snowblower and which parts you need to replace, you may be able to spend less than $50 to get your machine updated and ready for snow storms. Compare this cost with new snowblowers, which can range from $600 to $1,250. Spending some time on preventive maintenance for your snowblower this fall can save you hundreds come winter.
Make sure your snowblower is in good working condition - before winter arrives.
For Gas Snowblowers:
Before checking your snowblower, consult the owner’s manual to locate every part that should be tested. Owners of gas snowblowers (versus electric) will have a few extra steps to check the fuel and change the oil.
Purchase the appropriate fuel and fuel stabilizer for your snowblower model. Drain the gas tank of any residual fuel with a turkey baster or similar siphon and dispose. Fill the tank with new gas and the recommended amount of fuel stabilizer. Close the tank securely.
Use the oil reservoir’s dipstick to check the oil. If it looks dirty, purchase the recommended brand of oil for your snowblower model. Drain the old oil into a secure container and discard it properly. Add new oil and close the reservoir tightly.
Confirm that the snowblower is operational when plugged in and turned on.
