    Default Wax Those Snowblowers!

    I wax the blades, scoop, and chute on my snowblower with ski wax. It really cuts down on the snow accumulation and ice build-up inside. Just sayin'.

    Crash? Do you do that with your snowblower?

    This is a pg13 forum, so I'll leave that question unanswered.

    I think it would be way more useful if some men did that with their eyebrows. The likes of Andy Rooney, for instance.

    It's a little late, but thanks Ken.

    I use the silicone spray too.

    I actually use spray paint. Well, not intentionally but it seems to work. I had a can of paint the apparently fell into the blower last year. Made an awful racket when I engaged the blades. Then there was this huge cloud of black mist and the can went flying out the chute. Cleaned the ice right out, however.

    Or you could just put a roof over your driveway, and not have to worry about it.

    Just sayin'.

    You know what will happen if you do that don't you? It'll look like the guy that pulls the table cloth out from under the dinner table - there won't be a single snow flake out of place.

    Yes! Thinking out of the box! That's brilliant!

    And the wind is howling outside. Near white-out conditions, and it's barely snowing.

    Heated driveway?
    You could use solar, to heat the water/antifreeze that gets pumped through the pipes in the concrete.

    Problem solved.
    Anything else I can help you with?
