How To Prepare A Snow Blower For Off Season Storage

With spring in full swing, it’s time to prepare your snow blower for off season storage. Follow these maintenance steps for preparing and storing your snow blower, to ensure your snow blower is ready for the first snow fall next winter.


Remember to refer to your Honda Snow Blower Owner’s Manual for maintenance information for your specific model or contact Von Rohr Equipment Company.


To prepare to store a snow blower or snow thrower for over 90 days or off season, drain all of the fuel from the fuel tank and carburetor. After the fuel is drained and the engine is cooled off, remove the spark plug and pour one teaspoon of clean engine oil into the cylinder. This prevents rust from forming inside the engine. Reinstall the spark plug and pull the starter rope several times to distribute the oil in the cylinder. Then pull the starter rope slowly until you feel resistance. This closes the valve and prevents moisture from entering the cylinder. Fold the handle bar by loosening the handle bar nuts and fold the handle bar over the top of the snow thrower. 


For more details on draining the fuel, visit the Honda HS720 Snow Thrower Maintenance and Storage Video or Two Stage Snow Blower Maintenance and Storage video.


If you prefer to have your snow blower serviced for off season storage, contact Von Rohr Equipment Company for service. Von Rohr Equipment Company offers great rates and can handle all your snow blower maintenance needs.


We also recommend outfitting your snow blower with a cover to keep it clean and dust-free. Honda has covers that are custom fitted for specific snow blower models, that are great for storing the snow blower during off season. Von Rohr Equipment Company can help you find the right one for your snow blower.

Built For Honda 

Genuine Honda parts are designed by Honda for each Honda Power Equipment model. Only genuine Honda parts can maintain the original operating specifications of your Honda and offer a perfect fit and finish every time.

Honda’s Best Quality

Genuine Honda parts are manufactured to strict quality standards for an exact fit and precise operation.

Compromise one part and you may unknowingly compromise a whole system.

Six Snow Blowing Tips To Improve Efficency

When a heavy snowfall is in the forecast, follow these snow blowing tips to improve efficiency. 


Prepare Your Sidewalk and Driveway Before Snowfall

Preparing your sidewalk and driveway before snowfall will save time and prevent injuries. Place markers around your sidewalk and driveway, so you’ll know where they are located. Make sure the hose, bicycles and toys are placed in the garage. Remove rocks and extension cords that could be in the way of the snow blower.   


Get New Gas For Your Snow Blower

Always use new fuel for your snow blower. Gas that is over 90 days old will deteriorate and cause a snow blower to have starting or running problems. Do not use gas containing more than 10% ethanol in your Honda snow blower.


Add Fuel Stabilizer To the Gas

Add Honda Fuel Stabilizer to the new gas in the snow blower fuel tank when filling up. After adding Honda Fuel Stabilizer to the gas for the first time, run the snow blower engine outdoors for ten minutes.


Use Snow Blower in Smaller Widths When Clearing Deep Snow

If you are clearing hard or deep snow, clear a narrower swath. Walk your Honda snow blower in overlapping rows. This is much easier on the snow blower’s engine. It also helps significantly to avoid clogs in the snow blower chute.


Refuel With Care

Gas is highly flammable and explosive. If your snow blower runs out of gas while in use, turn the snow blower engine off and let it cool for at least fifteen minutes before refueling. Refuel outdoors in a well ventilated area with the snow blower engine off. Refer to the Honda Owner’s Manual for all safety and operating instructions. 


Blow Snow At Six Inches

If the forecast is predicting a heavy snowfall, start blowing the snow at six inches. It is easier on the snow blower and it decreases the height of the snow bank. It’s much easier to blow six inches of snow twice than twelve inches of snow once.


Von Rohr Equipment Company, 2 Main St East Orange, NJ 07018, (973) 748-9111 is here to answer your questions about snow blowers, servicing and the one year extended warranty on select Honda snow blowers and generators. Receive a one year extended warranty on Honda’s most popular generators and snow blowers, purchased between November 25, 2019 and January 31, 2020.

Generator Safety

Customer safety is extremely important to Von Rohr Equipment Company and that’s why we want to encourage discussions about generator safety. All too often, we hear about preventable deaths when generator safety isn’t a high priority, resulting in Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning. In fact about 170 people in the U.S. die every year from CO produced by non-automotive consumer products.  


These products include Honda’s engine powered equipment such as generators for the construction and rental industries, backup power during outages, camping equipment and other outdoor events. CO is a deadly, colorless, odorless and can kill within minutes.


Von Rohr Equipment Company wants you to be safe. Many people don’t know the only safe place to have a generator is outdoors, away from doors and windows. In closed areas, even with open doors and windows, these spaces can trap CO and allow it to quickly build to lethal levels. So we need to learn and share how to practice generator safety.


Did you know generators …

·   Exhaust contains toxic CO.

·   Connected to a building improperly could allow electrical current to feed back into utility lines, creating an electrocution hazard for utility workers.

·   Using a generator with wet hands or in wet conditions could result in electrocution.

·   Run on gasoline and to avoid explosive situations, don’t refuel while the engine is hot and running and keep flammables away from the generator when it’s running.

·   Become very hot during operation and remain hot for a while after the engine stops. Be careful not to touch the muffler while it is hot, and let the engine cool before storing the generator indoors.


CO initial symptoms are similar to the flu (without the fever), shortness of breath, nausea and dizziness. Higher level symptoms of CO poisoning include mental confusion, vomiting, loss of muscular coordination and consciousness and death. If you think you have been exposed to toxic levels of CO, get outside immediately for fresh air, call 911 and tell them you suspect you’ve been exposed to CO poisoning. This winter, Von Rohr Equipment Company wants us all to be safer by telling our family and friends about CO dangers and how we can avoid catastrophes. Consider purchasing CO detectors as gifts for ourselves and loved ones. We definitely want to read our generator manuals and encourage others to read them too and share the information, and take time to review generator labels for more safety specifics.

Choosing A Honda Generator in East Orange, NJ

As winter continues to grip a good part of our country and the weather remains unpredictable, you never know when a generator might come in handy. If the area you live in has frequent power outages, buying a generator might be a good investment and relieve some stress.


Many of us don’t think about the need for a generator until we experience a power failure. Then all kinds of issues arise, including the inability to heat or cool our home, spoiled food in the refrigerator and freezer, inoperable medical equipment, charging your cell phone, and more. 




When choosing a generator, you will want to consider the following:


•      Decide on the size of the generator you need. Keep in mind, many people can use a small generator like the EU2200i to power their fridge, lights, TV, and other critical essentials during outages. If you need to power your well pump, you’ll need to go with a larger model, like the EM5000. Honda has a great tool to help you calculate the wattage you need. https://powerequipment.honda.com/generators/wattage-calculator


•      Decide if the generator will be used as an emergency backup at home or during outdoor activities. If you are interested in using it for more than just emergency back up, consider an EU series generator, which is very versatile and perfect for recreational activities as well as home power.


A couple of safety issues to be aware of when using generators are carbon monoxide and electrocution. Carbon monoxide is colorless and odorless and kills people every year, while sending others to the emergency room. Generators belong outside and should never be run in a basement or garage, even if windows or doors are open. Always consult your owner’s manual for other safety concerns and more information.
