Don’t let this beautiful Fall weather we’ve been having trick you. Winter is just around the corner! If you experience winters like we do here in South Dakota, winter can be brutal–on you and your equipment. Old Man Winter can strike at any moment, so make sure your snowblower is prepared BEFORE the snow flies.

A broken belt will stop your snowblower dead in its tracks; don’t let that happen when the first 6 inches of snow is waiting for you in your driveway. Check your belt now. If your belt is cracked, purchase a replacement belt. Even if your belt is fine now, it’s a good idea to order a spare–because Murphy’s Law can strike at any time.

In addition to checking your belt, here are some other maintenance tips for getting your snowblower ready for that first snow:

  • Change the oil
  • Clean or replace your spark plug
  • Drain fuel tank and replace with fresh, stabilizer-enhanced gasoline
  • Lubricate drive and chassis
  • Tighten any loose nuts and bolts
  • Start your snowblower and let it run in a well-ventilated area for a few minutes
