Hints & Tips
We might be enjoying a really mild January but by this time next week the met men (and women) say the winds ill return to the north and it will be much colder.
So now’s the time to prepare for the snow and we have special clearance sales on a range of MTD snow blowers at bargain prices.
The MTD M56 Snow Blower / Snow Thrower is a 2 Stage Self-Propelled machine which has a powerful auger which breaks down the snow and ice which is then blow away by an impellor via an adjustable chute.
A 179 engine is specially designed to cope with freezing conditions and is easy to fire up even when it’s bitter.
The clearing width is 56 cm making it suitable for drives and paths and forecourts on smaller business premises.
Snow Hog tyres give excellent traction even when it’s slippery.
The exit chute can be rotated through 180 degrees and is designed so it will not easily clog of freeze.
The manufacturer’s recommended price £669 but we have it for sale at the moment for £499.
It is delivered free the next working day and has a one year manufacturer’s warranty.
Another from the same company aimed at larger properties or small businesses, the MTD M61 Snow Blower / Snow Thrower is a 2 stage self-propelled machine which as five forward and two reverse gears.
This one has a special 179 cc engine for easy starting from cold and is designed to clear heavier snow falls – up to a foot and more.
Large snow tyres give excellent traction and there is remote control of the snow chute so the pitch and direction of the thrower can be altered from the driving position.
Again it has two ways of dealing with the snow, the augur breaks down the snow and ice and then a powerful impellor breaks it down further and blasts it away.
Currently you can save £170 on this machine while stocks last as it is priced at just £649.
Delivery is free the next working day and there is a one year maker’s guarantee.

This one has a 277 cc engine again designed for cold conditions, solidly built for a long working life.
The front augur has a working height of 53 cm to handle deeper falls and has sheer bolts to prevent serious damage and snow skids at the front can be adjusted depending on the surface.
Sixteen inch wheels have deep-patterned tyres and the four forward and two reverse gears mean you can work at the speed to suit the conditions and the operator.
An electric start saves tugging on a cord and there is a headlight so you can keep working in the gloom.
Again a centrally positioned joystick means you can alter the pitch and direction of the chute without have to stop.
This one is £400 less than the maker’s recommended price at £899.
