Tips for Snow Thrower Storage Wanted

Recommended Posts

Yeoman627
With winter now behind us here in New England, I am finally ready to put away my 32" Rotary Snow Thrower (MFG #882) until next season. I had very good results with it this past winter on my 738 Broadmoor, and would like to properly put it away to ensure similar results next season. Can anyone offer any recommendations to prepare it for storage ? At a minimum, I would like to hose it down (pressure wash) to remove any sand/dirt and touch-up some of the exposed metal areas. What about lubrication ? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom K

Hi Tom, DO NOT "presure wash" your tractor and any attachment with moving parts with bearings period. It will force dirt or what ever into the bearings and even ruin seals that help keep dirt or dust out. The pressure washers have just that to much pressure. I would litely hose it off if you really feel it needs it and then touch up the paint. Depending on if it will be stored inside or outside like a shed I always spray them with wd-40 or even a lite coat of oil will do the job. Just be carefull not to get any on the belt. A pressure washer is another good way of blowing the paint off. Best, >>->happyjack<-<<
