Snow blowers have long been the workhorse of the landscaping business and the telescopic snow brush is one of the most popular models in this line. Many people have enjoyed the simplicity and versatility of these types of brushes. It has long been considered a necessary accessory to any serious garden landscaper. A good quality telescopic brush will last for years. This article will take a look at the main benefits of owning this type of brush and how it can benefit you as a lawn care user.
The main benefit of using a brush with telescopic extensions is the extra power and control it offers. Rather than simply moving the snow off your driveway or lawn you can use a much bigger tractor in order to reach the areas that would normally be out of bounds. Using this type of brush will allow you to make small, delicate maneuvers that would not have been possible before. Before you had to be on your own to reach those difficult areas of your landscape.
When you are using a brush with snow blower attachments you do not need to remove the snow from the surface of the ground. If you leave the snow on the surface, you risk spreading it around your lawn or driveway. Not only can this result in a large mess but it can also ruin the look of your property. You can avoid the mess and damage by having the snow simply blow off the sidewalks or driveways.
One of the features that many people like about this kind of brush is the versatility. You can use it in any season or climate. The brush is designed to handle both light and heavy snow. In addition to the regular brush you also have an attachment that will allow you to use your snow blower. So not only can you use the snow brush to get the snow off your driveway and sidewalks but you can use it to remove the snow from your gutter system.
Even though you may be shopping for a brand new snow blower, you should still consider buying an older model that is still in good condition. There are many older models that are still available. This is because snow blowers no matter how old they are still capable of doing their job. However if you find one that is a bit on the lower end of the price scale, there is still a good chance that it will serve you for years to come. A good quality used model that you can purchase for a reasonable price should last you for several years without any problems.
Just like any other brush you will want to make sure that you choose the correct size for your snow clearing needs. Be sure to measure the area that you will be using the telescopic snow brush head in. The measurement that you provide will determine the size of the brush head. You will also want to consider the thickness of the snow that you will be clearing so that you do not make the mistake of buying a brush head that is too thick and it will clog up the auger or your auger lines.
Telescopic brush heads can be a little tricky to understand initially. The first thing that you will need to keep in mind is that the teeth on the top of the brush are designed to get into small pore sizes on your snow. The actual size of the brush itself is much smaller than the actual brush teeth. You will need to make sure that you buy a quality auger that is designed for small to medium sized snow clearing projects. If you buy a large telescopic brush head, you will often find that it does not clear the snow fast enough.
It is always recommended that you use two telescopic brush heads on each snow clearance project. This will ensure that you cover as much ground as possible in the least amount of time. Even if you only use one brush head, it will help in making the snow clearing process go faster. You will be able to spend more time working on other aspects of your snow clearances.
