Snowthrower Safety Tips

      First and foremost, snowthrowers are specialty products designed to help us deal with the chores of keeping our walkways and driveways clear of snow. Anyone that has been forced to use a shovel to clear the snow "plug" left behind by the road plow can appreciate just how convenient it is to have a powerful machine to chomp up that snow and ice and throw it out of the way. Indeed, for many people in northern climates that have significant amounts of snowfall and winter-y weather, owning a snowblower is more than just a convenience - it's a necessity.

      It takes a tremendous amount of power to pick up deep and wet snow and throw it across the driveway or over the top of the snowbanks. Thankfully, modern snowthrowers supply that power in dependable and easy-to-use models with many convenience and safety features. Still, there is the possibility for injury and even greater tragedy if care is not exercised when using any snowthrower.

      Though snowthrower manufacturers have continually updated safety features with each successive design, more than 6000 people suffer snowblower-related injuries each year - injuries severe enough to need medical or emergency room treatment. The majority of injuries could be prevented if people followed the manufacturer's safety instructions, used common sense, and avoided placing themselves (or others) in risk's way.
