Snow Removal Tools

Winter is here, spreading its frosty breath over all that moves

The earth is covered in a blanket of white snow that glistens in all its dazzling splendor. All this beauty is material for poetry. However, when you have to wake up and go to work and find fresh snow, a foot deep, making your driveway untraversable, you come crashing down to reality. These are times when you need your trusty snow removal tools at hand.

It is wise to do your shopping for these tools with enough time in hand. When a heavy spell of snowing hits, you will neither have time nor opportunity to go to the hardware store and pick and choose the tools that you prefer.

If you haven’t already, now is as good a time as any. While choosing snow removal tools, it is best to go for something that is customized to your specific needs.

You need to think about your level of fitness as well. Here, we have listed some options that may help

  1. Snow Shovels: Snow shovels are a byword in every household. Every winter, homeowners are out shoveling snow with their shovels. However, snow shoveling is not just a chore. It’s no less than a good workout. That’s why it is very important that you have the right kind of shovel. It should have a deep and wide body so that it can move a good amount of snow.
  2. Smart Snow Shovels: Smart snow shovels have rotating handles so that you don’t have to move too much to adjust your position while shoveling snow. It is a smart investment.
  3. Snow Pushers: You may also use a snow pusher instead of a snow shovel. The advantage you will have with this tool is that you will not have to lift the snow. You can simply push it away. This way, your back will be saved the trouble of bending and lifting.
  4. Snow Blower: These look and function like lawn mowers except that they remove snow. It is a second stage snow removal tool. It has an auger that picks up the snow and sends it to the impeller. The impeller then blows the snow. There is a chute for the snow to leave the machine.
  5. Electric Snow Thrower: This tool is electric and in one movement, sucks in the snow and throws it away. It is slightly different from a snow blower. It is a one stage machine for snow removal.
  6. Snow Plow: A snow plow is somewhere between a snow pusher and a snow blower.
  7. Wheeled Snow Plows: A wheeled snow plow is a snow plow with wheels. This makes it easier to use and move snow from one place to another.
  8. Roof Rake: When snow or ice accumulates on the roofs of houses, it is essential to remove it after a point. Roof rakes help in removing snow from on top of roofs.
  9. Telescoping Shovel: Ever had to shovel snow from under the tires of your car? Difficult, isn’t it?! Well, here is your solution. A telescoping shovel is built to reach odd, steep angles. This is why this is a very effective tool to get stubborn snow away from the path of your car tires.
  10. Shop Broom: A shop broom may be used to clear away light, flaky snow that lie on sidewalks.

Our goal at All American Turf Beauty, Inc. is a simple one:

To provide you with the highest quality products and methods available.

We offer every kind of service that it takes to develop and maintain a beautiful lawn in Iowa based on the climate, soil types, and the varieties of grass that are commonly grown here.

One of the keys to the success of the program is that we provide treatment to lawns approximately every 8 weeks throughout the growing season. This ensures that the grass has fertilizer (food) available throughout the growing season. Dandelions and other Broadleaf weeds are controlled as they germinate thus enabling a weed free lawn, and our Turf Specialist is at the property four to six times per season to address problems as and when they arise.

Another key to our service is our people. The most important person to you in our company is the Turf Specialist assigned to treat your lawn.

We are proud to say that our Turf Specialists are the best trained and most experienced in the lawn care industry.

When you become a customer at All American Turf Beauty, a Turf Specialist is assigned to your account. You will have the same person treating your lawn each time. It is their responsibility to service your lawn, make sure it is receiving the correct applications as scheduled, and to provide you with the best personalized service possible. Their jobs depend on it.

We have several programs to choose from. Your Turf Specialist will recommend the best program that fits the needs of your lawn and your budget.
