You must have a lot of trouble with liquids.
I don’t think any newer snow blowers are two stroke anymore. Could be wrong but all new models are four stroke. And I tune up my lawnmowers every year, fwiw
I’ll have to try the spraying idea! It’s actually funny, it doesn’t shoot snow very far unless there’s more than a couple inches, but if there’s too much, it can’t handle it. haha. I still really like it, winter #2 with it.
