All Clear!

   Before you even start your snowthrower, check the area you'll be clearing and remove any objects that may be pulled into the chute and hurled out or jam the machine - this includes doormats, sticks, toys, newspapers and other objects that may be buried beneath the snow.
   Be mindful of rocks, gravel, and ice chunks - they can easily break home or auto windows, damage house siding, or seriously injure a person or pet. If you have to snowblow a gravel driveway or walkway, adjust the skids on the bottom of the intake chute to clear any gravel or loose rocks.    Make sure your snowthrower's discharge chute is in good working order and allows you to precisely aim where the thrown snow and ice is heading. Aim the chute away from people, houses, and roadways - snow and debris can be thrown 30 feet or more from the discharge chute.
   Watch out for treacherous walking conditions - ice, holes, curbs, stairs and more could be hidden beneath the snow and cause you to lose your footing. When clearing snow from slopes, use an up and down approach and shift the snowthrower into low gear. Never clear across the face - you may slip and fall or the machine may tip - and don't attempt to clear snow from very steep slopes.
   Always be aware of pedestrians, children and pets that are in the area when you are operating your snowthrower.
