Snow shoveling can be easier when you spray your blade to keep the snow from sticking. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—It's the heart of winter, which means plenty of snow removal
is in your future. Poorly maintained equipment and using the wrong clearing
techniques can make shoveling or blowing your driveway and walkways a chore.
Follow the tips below to make snow removal as easy as possible.
Start Early and Shovel Often
It's easier to shovel an inch or two of fresh snow than half a foot of
snow that's densely packed. Shovel first thing in the morning and, if it
continues to snow, go out every couple of hours to clear a few inches at
various points throughout the day.
Maintain Your Equipment
If you didn't perform maintenance on your snowblower
before the winter season, it's not too late. On gasoline-powered machines,
check the oil level before each use. Inspect and change damaged or worn spark
plugs, belts and shave plates. On all snowblowers,
be sure to maintain proper tire pressure. After you've finished for the day,
run the machine for a minute or so to clear out snow.
Shovel the Right Way
Shoveling to remove snow can be hard work, so protect your body and make
the job a bit easier by pushing the snow instead of lifting it. To prevent
aches and pains, keep your feet hip-width apart, bend your knees, keep your
back straight and avoid twisting your torso if you must lift the snow.
Finally, spray WD-40 Multi-Use Product on the shovel blade to prevent snow
from sticking to it for easier transfer of snow from sidewalks and driveways.
