Winter is Coming: Time to Get a Snow Blower

Winter will be here before you know it, and with it can come some pretty extreme conditions. Having the right tools available can mean the difference between getting out of your driveway safely and ending up flat on your back for a few weeks after a vigorous snow shoveling session. Why go through all that pain and suffering when a snow blower can cut your work time more than in half and protect your health at the same time?

Types of Snow Blowers

The type of snow blowers that you need really depends on your particular circumstance. If your home has a short, straight and relatively-level driveway area, then a single-stage electric snow blower might be just the right size. However, if you’re looking at a larger area, a single-stage gas snow blower might be a better option.

The big, bad beast of a snow blower is the two-stage gas snow blower. Whether you’re going for the stand-on serious snow blower or the walk behind from Toro, you can be sure that you’re getting a machine that will last you for many years.


If you already have a snow blower but haven’t dusted it off in a year, it is definitely time to consider some basic maintenance. Keep extras of important parts such as belts, shear pins and fuel stabilizer on hand so you don’t find yourself with a useless hunk of metal that won’t start or run. Ralph Helm Lawn Equipment Center can help ensure that you get the right maintenance for your equipment quickly and easily, and it’s always at a great price.
