Hints & Tips
The North Wind Doth Blow and We Shall Have Snow.
So says the old piece of folk lore which, like many other ancient country sayings, is all too true as the wind settles round in the east and north and looks set to stay there for several days to come.
So Winter Draws On, as the other piece of seasonal lore says.
But with the first snows of winter in the north of England and many parts of Scotland, time for us all to take precautions to make sure we’re not blocked in at home, much though that sounds a tempting prospect.
Our Black Friday Sale has a couple of machines to keep drives and paths open without recourse to a snow shovel.
Shovelling snow is one way to keep warm in the winter but it is also a passport to a dodgy back.
This little machine at a bargain price could be the answer, the Oleo-Mac Artik 52 Single-Stage Petrol Snow Blower.
As you push it along snow in the front chute is blasted clear – up to eight metres away. The height and angle are simply set and any temptation to blast it into the neighbour’s garden should be firmly resisted.
A 163cc Emak engine producing 5.5hp drives an impellor to do the hard work for you. This engine has been designed to start easily in cold weather and has excellent fuel consumption and emission figures.
As it is pushed along it is easy to navigate and can get through narrow gates and around obstacles in the drive and paths.
It weighs only 45kg and has a five-year warranty and costs £299, saving £200 on the recommended price.
And we deliver it FREE the next working day, with some FREE oil into the bargain.
This machine from the same company is self-propelled. The Oleo-Mac Artik 56 Dual-Stage Snow Blower has a two-stage system and more power.
As it moves along, the snow and ice is collected in the auger hood with blades to cut through ice and compacted snow.
Once broken down the second stage comes into play, blasting it up to 12 metres clear up the exit chute.
The exit chute is adjustable through 190° and the stream can also be adjusted vertically by up to 70°.
A 182cc Loncin engine provides the power and has been specially designed to cope with freezing conditions.
It has five forward gears and two reverse driving a pair of Snow Hog tyres.
Sliders on the auger hood let you adjust the working height to suit both the depth of snow and surface.
This one costs £449, £150 below the recommended price, and it has a five-year warranty. Delivery is FREE within two to three working days and a FREE bottle of oil is included in the package.
