MIAMI, OKLA. – Snow! AGAIN? As many parts of the country know, winter weather is hanging on with a fierce grip. That means homeowners need to keep their winter snow removal equipment ready for what’s ahead before Mother Nature brings us warmer temperatures.
“Back-to-back serious winter storms throughout the country are dumping excessive amounts of snow on many places,” says Daniel Marshall, vice president of marketing and business development with ScepterTM. “These record snow falls mean personal snow removal systems and back-up generators are getting more use than ever before.
“For people living in areas getting hammered repeatedly with bad weather it’s important to keep extra fuel on hand for snow blowers, snow mobiles and generators.”
Marshall recommends homeowners invest in new, easy-to-use ScepterTM SmartControlTM fuel containers that can be filled and stand ready to help handle winter weather woes. Available in one-, two- and five-gallon gas, kerosene and diesel containers, the durable SmartControl containers can be safely stored in garages and shed throughout the remaining winter season.
“Weather-weary people across the country need to keep their guard up,” says Marshall. “The repeat snow storms will soon meld into difficult springtime weather in many areas. Having full containers of reserve fuel on hand is a smart idea throughout the coming months for all homeowners.”
Easy-of-Use and Storage
The innovative spout design of SmartControl makes it easier than ever to fuel equipment year-round. The spout provides a clean, fast, and hassle-free pour and helps save gas for where it’s needed by eliminating messy spills. The user-controlled flow valve with its flame mitigation device (FMD) makes it easier and safer to direct the amount of fuel being dispensed, and because the container stores with the spout on, hands always stay clean.
With a single motion, the user simply presses the lever up to unlock the child safety feature with the palm of the hand, and then squeezes the large button. This first squeeze is done when upright to vent the container. Then, place the nozzle over the tank and simply squeeze again to pour just the right amount of fuel.
