Snow Blowers require spare parts. Parts that are most often purchased include batteries, fuel filters, spark plugs, mufflers, and tires.
What are the key components of a
Engine The snow blowers engine uses fuel to produce rotational motion to produce the power to rotate the paddles which blow snow out of the chute.
Chute The chute directs the snow away from the snow blower as snow is cleared from the driveway or walkway.
Alternator The alternator produces electricity using the mechanical energy from the engine. The alternator charges the battery so it is able to start the engine.
Motor Electric snow blowers use a/c motors to rotate the paddles that throw the snow out of the snow chute.
Starter The snow blower is started using either a recoil type pull starter coupled to the flywheel or using a starter motor powered by a battery.
Battery The snow blower battery is used to start the engine in snow blowers that have an electric starter.
Hour Meter The hour meter is device that measures the amount of time that the snow blower has been in use. Hour meters are important to determine when routine maintenance is needed. They are also a good tool to use in determining how much a snow blower has been used when it comes to evaluating used snow blowers.
Frame The frame is the chassis which secures the engine, gas tank and alternator together. Often, in the case of larger portable snow blowers, a wheel kit and a handle kit are used to make the snow blower more portable.
Fuel the fuel is either stored in a tank or plumbed to the snow blower in the case of a natural gas or propane snow blower. In the case of gasoline snow blowers, fuel is transferred from the fuel tank to the carburetor using a fuel pump.
