But, before you just toss your snow blower and skis into your storage unit, you need to know that they will be in good condition when you return next year.

Many times, the manual will let you know the steps you need to take to prepare your equipment for storage. In addition, you can use the manual to guide you when it comes to caring for your equipment.
