I’ve updated these suggestions – please click here to see my new snow blower recommendations.
AMSOIL has a variety of oils that will protect your snow blower this winter. The first step when deciding what oil to run in your snow blower is to read the users manual. Usually it suggests a 5W-30 or synthetic 0W-30 oil since you’ll be running the equipment in sub-zero temperatures.
Every time someone asks me what oil they should use in their snow blower it usually leads to a much longer conversation as I end up asking these questions.
- Do you have a 2-stroke or 4-stroke engine on your snow thrower?
- What oil are you currently using in your
vehicles orother OPE?
- How cold do you expect winter to be in your area and where do you store your snow blower?
- Do you purchase fuel that doesn’t contain ethanol?
