Following an oil change schedule can prepare your snow blower for the next big snow storm. It is recommended to change the oil in your Ariens snow blower after the first 2 hours of operation. In partnership with the National Association of Landscape Professionals, Ariens is providing its customers with a variety of lawncare tips. Mulch not only makes planting areas look neat, but also helps to retain moisture in the soil, keeps roots cool in the summer, and insulates them in the winter. As mulch decomposes, it adds organic matter to the soil.
Now that your engine has fresh oil, you’re ready to get back to mowing! Step 15: Start your engine and check for oil leaks. Ariens Sno-Thro chains for 12 in. x 3.5 in. tires are a heavy twist link design intended for deeper lug tires. Test your soil once every few years to make sure it has the proper pH balance and mix of nutrients.
Conclusion: Regular oil changes can keep your snow blower running all winter long. One hint on timing is that when forsythia is in full bloom, it’s usually the perfect time to apply crabgrass weed preventer. Follow along step by step and have fresh oil in your engine in no time! Be sure to check your owner’s or service manual for model specific information such as the type of oil and a recommended service schedule.
