Hints & Tips
With the medium range forecast hinting at more snow to come later this month it will pay to join the growing number of people investing in a snow blower to keep drives and paths safe and businesses running.
We have a wide range of snow clearing equipment on our site, including heavy duty snow ploughs, but here we have selected three snow blowers for you to consider.
The McCulloch SB121 Single-Stage Petrol Snow Blower is powered by powerful engine and offers extremely good value for money.
It gives back to black finish – back to the original hard surface – and has a rubber auger which helps move the machine forward. The chute is adjusted by hand and the pitch can also be moved.
It has a working width of 54 cm and can cope with snow 33 cm deep.
The handles can be folded down for easy storage also meaning it can be transported in the boot of a larger car.
This snow blower costs just £369 compared with the manufacturer’s price of £499, and has next working day delivery and a one year manufacturer’s guarantee.
The Cub Cadet 221 LHP Single Stage Snow Blower with Electric Start is a single stage machine which has a steel reinforced rubber auger to churns up the snow straight into the chute and throw it clear.
The revolving auger also moves the machine forwards as it clears surfaces ‘back to black’.
The Cub Cadet runs on a 208 cc engine and has a width of 53.5 cm and can clear snow up to 33 cm deep.
It has a built-in headlamp enabling clearance when the light fades and the handlebars are adjustable so you can work at the correct height.
The wheels have a deep patterned tread to give plenty of grip for when the going gets tough.
The snow blower costs £599, a full £100 off the manufacturer’s price, and comes with free next working day delivery and a one year guarantee.
And finally, and if you have a large area to clear, there is our own MD SnowCAT 2-stage Snow Blower with Caterpillar Tracks, a really heavy duty machine for clearing longer drives and paths, forecourts and car parks.
A powerful 270 cc engine drives caterpillar tracks to give the best possible grip on slippery surfaces and excellent manoeuvrability.
Serrated augurs break down snow and ice and then a separate impellor throws it through a chute which is fully adjustable by using a joystick control.
It has a width of 70 cm and a working depth of 54 cm and there is a headlight for working in poor light. Plus the engine has an electric start to make life easier.
This machine is exclusive to us and is an absolute bargain at just £1199, £700 off the manufacturer’s recommended price and represents a really sound investment.
