Snow removal or snow clearing is the job of removing snow after a snowfall to make travel easier and safer. This is done by both individual households and by governments and institutions.
The machines used to remove snow are most often snow blowers. Snow blowers use either gas or electricity to power a motor that runs the equipment. A snow blower`s auger collects the snow and sends it through a chute to remove the flakes from walkways and driveways.
Most lawn tractor manufacturers have snow plow, or snow blower, attachments available. There are universal plow/blower attachments to be purchased as well, many for the price of a lower-priced walk-behind snow blower. It`s not that hard, actually, to convert your lawn tractor into a snow removal machine.
Here`s Why Snow Removal Is Important:

Snow increases the risk of slip and fall accidents that can cause major injuries including broken bones. This is why it is so important to remove any built-up snow around your house to ensure it is safe for you, your loved ones, and your pets.

Clearing the snow off your roof from the gutters or eaves upwards of three to four feet after each winter storm can help prevent ice dams from forming.
Compressed air is shot up through the nozzle, where it meets water and splits it into tiny droplets. The sudden loss of pressure robs the system of heat, rapidly cooling the water to form a tiny ice pellet – a snow “seed”. The giant fan now propels these seeds into the air alongside the fine mist of water droplets.
Snow removal includes plowing, plus all other methods of snow removal. This could include shoveling, snow blowing, sanding/icing, or roof raking.
Snow can be ploughed (pronounced PLOWED) by a snow plougher…a vehicle with a shovel-like part in front. People who clean snow off driveways, sidewalks, etc… could be called snow shovelers, because of the shovel they use with their hands and arms.
According to the video, airport electricians clear the snow from all the runway lights by hand. After the snowstorm, crews can stay on site for days to keep removing snow. Some piles are moved off-site to melt, while other chunks are taken to one of four airport melters, which can melt up to 150 tons of snow an hour.

Will not start – Yard Machines 24" 208cc Two Stage Snow Thrower
ANSWER : If there is an adjusting screw on the carb turn it out a little bit at a time and see if that works before you do anything else. If that don’t work put the screw back where you started.
If that doesn’t work take the plug out and install a new one and while the plug is out put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and put the plug wire back on. If the engine starts but stalls after the little bit of gas is used up. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out as well as clean the fuel jet that is in the bolt that holds the bowl on. Put back together and see if that works. It is quite often dirty gas that is the problem. Especially if its been sitting. Oh yes put fresh gas in it as well.
