Snow is an essential element of winter in most of Madison. The sparkling white snow brings a lot of joy to children and adults, but it brings a lot of hassle to motorists, business owners and utilities.
In order to keep the roads and sidewalks clean, it was convenient and safe to move along them, the snow is cleared with the help of highly specialized municipal equipment snow plows. To clean areas where it is technically impossible to use massive machines, snow shovels or special units – snow blowers are used.
If the snow is fresh and loose, and the cleaning area is small, the use of manual labor is justified. If it is been talking about large areas, then manually cleaning a large area is very laborious and ineffective. Therefore, many enterprises, utilities, and owners of personal plots are adopting special snow blowers. These units can remove drifts in a few minutes, clear the yard, the area in front of the entrance, lay paths in the park or square, near the entrances, in the parking lot and other spaces. Today we will talk about them.
How the snow blower works
The principle of a snow blower is similar to that of a lawn mower. The machine grabs the snow, redistributes it and throws it in front of it or to the side. Modern snow blowers are easy to operate, highly efficient and have excellent manoeuvrability.
The standard design of a snow blower includes:
- Body made mainly of metal;
- Wheels or tracks;
- Gasoline or electric engine;
- Control elements that regulate the turning angles and throwing distance;
- Snow collection equipment (bucket and augers);
- Chute for throwing snow to the side.
Snow throwers used by Earth development come in a wide variety of designs and sizes, from miniature to powerful self-propelled units. Each model has a certain set of characteristics that, depending on the conditions, help to fulfil the main task of snow removal with high quality.
