Snowblower Storage

Recommended Posts

BrendonV
This spring I'm making a rack to hold everything out of the weather. Not only the Simplicity attachments, but I have a mini skid steer with two buckets, pallet forks, 42" grapple, and some misc things. A simple wash with Simple Green, then coat with silicon spray, wd 40, or Amsoil makes a nice rust preventative I use on undercarriages.

I want all the orange stuff in burntime garage! For storage, after a clean up, I'll run it for a few and listen for bad bearings and the like. These blowers sit 80% or so of there life. Then remove it from the tractor, I don't grease before storage but I do inspect all bearing, pulley's etc. Just look it over really well. I would rather fix it in the spring and summer than in the fall and winter. My storage position is blower face down with it hanging by the hitch.

I apply a coat of wax to the interior surfaces of the blower and impeller leave it sit like that over the summer. I also check out all the wear parts and I make a list of anything I might need for the off season rebuild.
