Snow Blower Accessories You Definitely Should Not Pass On

The Must Have Snow Blower Accessories

The snow blower without a doubt is wintertime’s best kept secret.  It allows you to effortlessly get rid of the snow that has accumulated overnight.  Like any useful tool it has its own share of fancy accessories, some more useful than others. Put on all the bells and whistles for your snow blower with these neat accessories you definitely should not pass on.

Melt Buddy

This is snow’s worst enemy but is definitely your snow blower’s best bud. Most of the time, the snow blower is kept in a corner of your garage or shed until winter comes along. The melt buddy is an ice-melt (salt) spreader accessory that can connect to many snow blower models. This allows you the convenience of not having to drag out that heavy bag of salt around to spread onto your driveway and sidewalk. The Melt Buddy allows you to spread that salt while you’re clearing the snow.

Snow Cab

This also prevents you from getting a face full of snow coming from the discharge chute. It is a heavy-duty, freeze resistant fabric shell that allows you to work in blizzard like conditions. A standard snow cab normally fits all single and two stage snow blowers while the deluxe version can fit all two stage snow blower models.  Enjoy.

Clean Out Tools

The problem with snow is that it tends to pack together and build up within the housing of the auger. The more snow that builds up in this area, the less amount of snow the machine and process and clear. Snow Blower clean out tools allow you to remove the offending snow stuck in the auger housing quickly and conveniently.  Not only is it a useful tool to clear clogs but is also a good reminder on snow blower safety.

Tire Chains

Snow can be quite slippery. Anyone that has used a snow blower can tell you that.  The most embarrassing moment is when your snow blower slips and slides across the surface while you’re clearing the snow. Want to avoid this? Tire chains are a superb means of keeping your dignity and preventing embarrassment.  When snow melts during the day, but freezes over the night, it can cause the driveway and sidewalks to develop a layer of ice. When you go clearing the snow in the morning, the rubber wheels easily will slip on the ice. Tire chains provide that extra gripping action you need to ensure that traction is not lost.
