Check out your snowblower before the big storm hits.
Check Engine oil before starting adding additional oil as needed, if hard or not starting most likely the gas in the tank and carburetor bowl needs to be drained. It is best
to add a stabilizer to the fresh gas to prevent this added work. Mix with low ethanol(10% or less) gasoline to the instructions on the stabilizer container.
Take out the shear pins on the auger then try to turn them, if they turn freely you are safe if not oil or greese shaft till they do.
when done put the shear pin back in. not doing this check can damage the gear box if jamed with something in the your path.
Check tire pressure,
belts and idler pulleys for wear. Best to keep spare snowblower parts, spark plug, belts and shear pins as
they only break when in use and can be a quick fix. this place is great to buy cheap snowblower parts for sale
