Its snowblower season and our friends at Toro want to remind us to stay safe while clearing walks and driveways.
Here are some important safety reminders when using your snowblower.

  • Wear Adequate Winter Outerwear: Jacket and gloves with no scarf or strings on hoods
  • Safety gear: goggles, earbuds, slip proof footwear
  • Know where people and pets are
  • Operate only in good visibility & light
  • Turn corners slowly
  • Look down and behind when backing up
  • Run the unit a few minutes to prevent machine from freezing up
  • No smoking near machine
  • Do not put hands or feet near moving components on the machine
  • Do not operate the machine without all guards and other safety devices in place and working
  • Keep children out of the operating area and under the watchful care of a responsible adult other than you.
  • Never allow children to operate the machine.
  • Shut the machine off before servicing, fueling or unplugging
