Snow blowers are worth their weight in gold when they are matched properly to the job at
hand. Snow blowers are used not only for clearing residential walkways and driveways, but also for clearing
airport runways, farm lanes, pasture paths, railways, store parking lots, and city streets. Small township
operations will often use snow blowers to clear the dirt roads in the surrounding countryside so folks can get to
the grocery and feed store.
Living in an area of the country where snow is a regular winter occurrence, you’ll need a snow
blower. Snow blowers come in several sizes and feature varying levels of horsepower. The basic design
of a snow blower (regardless of size) is pretty consistent. A motor, hydraulics, or PTO powers snow
blowers. You can mount the blower to the front of your tractor, to a 3-point hitch behind your tractor, the
front of a truck, or even the front of your ATV.
Whether you need to move a few inches of snow or a few feet of snow, a snow blower that has a
multi-directional chute is valuable for managing where the snow goes as you work. When that first decent snow
hits, you and your back will be thankful for your snow blower.
