It should be obvious that the most important safety issue revolves around the augers and blades involved in the extraction process. These can be quite dangerous and there have been some instances of personal injuries. This is particularly the case if the auger becomes jammed with snow. Should a user not deactivate the machine and attempt to clear this snow by hand, the mechanism could reengage and cause potentially grievous bodily harm. However, there are several innovations which mitigate the chances of this occurring. Most modern used snowblowers such as the popular ARIENS snow blowers contain a device known as a "dead man's switch". This will immediately deactivate the unit when the controls are not physically engaged (such as a toggle or hand-operated lever). Secondly, when looking for blowers for sale, make sure these machines will also have a plastic tool that can be used to safely clear any clogs without risking damage to one's hands or to the machine.
After busting my back shoveling Minnesota snow for the last 12 years I finally broke down and bought a used snowblower this summer. But my old Snapper 10hp blower just doesn’t seem as mighty after seeing the above photo of Klimov VK-1 engines from Mig-15 jets mounted on the front of trucks to clear snow from airport runways in Russia. Now that’s a snowblower! I wonder how my neighbors would feel about one of these in the driveway?
