This Thanksgiving break, Flagstaff was covered in two feet of snow with more on the way. You pull out your snow blower to clear the snow, but your snow blower is either not working or not running the best it could. In the last couple of days, we have had many customers stop by and ask the HomCo technicians how to get their snowblower up and running or just running right. HomCo reached out to Marc Braatz our lead Ariens Technician and asked him to give us some common problems and possible solutions with snow blowers to help our customers troubleshoot and fix their snow blowers.
The first snowstorm just recently hit Flagstaff. For the next five months, you will never know when you will wake up and look out at the driveway just to see it covered with snow. When this happens, you now have to clear the driveway to get out, and on top of that, you must get the kids ready, make breakfast, and get to work on time. Just when you thought it could not get worse, the snow plow has been through and has left you a nice pile of snow at the end of your driveway. There must be an easier way than having to shovel out all the snow. The answer to that problem may be to buy a snow blower.
Winter is upon us and fortunately or unfortunately, depending on who you are, it is time to start thinking about the coming snow. The Farmer Almanac states that it is wise to be prepared for below-normal winter temperatures in the southwest, so it is time to be prepared and have a plan about how you are going to deal with all the snow that is coming this winter.
