DIY Snow Blower Chute Sweeper

Stay safe by adding a broom to the end of a snow blower

Family Handyman

To prevent hand injuries, new snow blowers come with a clean-out device for clearing a plugged chute. If you own an older snow blower, retrofit it with your own clean-out tool. Just screw a pair of broom spring clips to your snow blower and snap in an old broom cut to size. You’ll have the tool handy when your chute plugs, and you can brush all the snow off your snow blower before you put it away. — Smitty Surre
