Hints & Tips
My gardening guru, and taste appreciating beer buddy Mr Dick Roberts, in his simple and effective style, informed us yesterday in his Monday blog that snow may well be on the way and, in true friendly and helpful style suggested you take a look at one of our hottest bargains, designed to break the ice and clear away the white peril. The Oleo-Mac Artik 52 Single-Stage Petrol Snow Blower.
As Dick points out, we have this little beats on offer in our super saving Black Friday event at a pretty impressive price of £299 (saving £200).
Now I do not want to be alarmist in any way, shape or form, and I can’t see any snow out there right now, but in the interests of reminding you all what can happen when the cold stuff hits the roads, paths and yards of the nation, and then reminding you what you can do about it, here is a quick guide to a few snow solutions, to break us in gently to the coming winter proper.
I could almost do the whole job in two words, much beloved of boy scouts everywhere…
Yup. Dib, dib, dib, dob, dob,,,er…dob and all that.
The Mail online has definitely warned of snow, though, as they say, it is only expected to be a morcel of a smattering for the moment. However, they also point out that another cold snap could kick in next week with more severe weather.
And as the Daily Telegraph online pointed out as recently as last Thursday, a very light dusting of the white freezy stuff can still cause major chaos on our roads. So, if you’re out and about in your car here are a few tips… it may not snow tomorrow, or the day after, but if you are ready in advance, you’ll always be on top of it.
- Make sure you have a good shovel, or even a mini-shovel in your boot
- Make sure your windscreen de-icer is topped up
- Do keep an ice-scraper in your glove compartment
- Dress warmly. This is no time for tee shirts and shorts, even if you are a postman
- Make sure you have some spare warm clothes or blankets in your car just in case
- Keep some Wellngton boots or snow boots in your car
- Keep your mobile ‘phone well charged just in case
And don’t forget, a light fall of snow can affect your homestead too. Even a small amount of snow or ice is still slippy so make sure you clear your paths and if you have a business you have a duty of care to clean your public access areas.
If you visit our snow clearance are, you’ll find all sorts of equipment and product that can help you get prepared for bad weather. As well as simple snow shovels like the great value Garant Large Canadian Snow Pusher, a cold snap snip at only £199.99, MowDirect stocks a good selection of quality snow blowers including the simple but effective Stiga Snow Electric 31 a kind of electric snow shovel that costs a very reasonable £99
There is also, of course, the afore-mentioned Oleo-Mac Aktic 52 Snow Blower at the blow-me-down price of £299.
This is is a great deal and the Artik 52 is a robust and reliable machine with a clearing width of 52cm (20 inch), pneumatic super-gripping tyres, a powerful 163cc Emak engine, steel auger and will throw snow up to 8 metres away.
So, when it comes to paths, patios, decking, walkways and car parks, you can keep it clear and keep it safe with ease and at a decent price.
