Did you know that using a gas-powered blower helps to clear light snow
Fall 2020

For scarce powdery snow accumulation, pulling out a snow blower can be a lot of work. Why not try a gas-powered STIHL blower?

Within minutes, you’ll be able to clear cars, walkways, decks and driveways all the way down to the stone, concrete, wood or asphalt. In addition, the blower will be able to clear what a big snow blower can't, the front steps.

When the temperature starts climbing toward and above 0°C (32°F) after it snows, everything gets wetter, and a blower will not be as effective.

Remember to inspect the air filter and the air-intake grid for snow and ice build-up when using a gas blower. There could be instances of ice forming inside the carburetor after prolonged running with high humidity or blowing wet snow. This may cause future running problems.

Note: We advise against using an electric blower even for dry, powdery snow.


In order to operate your blower safely, you will want to wear the appropriate attire. This includes hearing protection (either earplugs or earmuffs), goggles that meet eye protection standards and non-slip, heavy-duty work gloves. Wear a respirator or dust mask as appropriate.
