🌨️ Elnino's Cold Snap Brings Snow to Multiple South African Provinces

Elnino, the weather phenomenon known for its impact on global climate patterns, is making its presence felt in South Africa. The country is currently experiencing a rare occurrence as a cold snap sweeps across the nation, bringing snowfall to three provinces simultaneously. This remarkable event has left many of us wondering when was the last time such widespread snowfall was witnessed.


❄️ Adverse Weather and Its Effect on Lawns

With the prevailing adverse weather conditions, our lawns are bearing the brunt of the cold snap. As a result, instead of tending to our gardens, we find ourselves engaged in the cleanup and restoration process. So, how can we mitigate the damage caused by these weather fluctuations? What tools and power machines can assist us in our quest?




Electric and Petrol Blowers - Tandem / Wolf


🔧 Tools to Help Mitigate the Aftermath

To tackle the aftermath of the cold snap on our lawns effectively, we recommend utilizing the following machines from your garage or garden shed:

  1. Electric Blowers for Home Use: These handy tools are perfect for gathering leaves without the hassle of using a rake. Not only do they save you time and effort, but they also prevent damage to your lawn. Tandem, a local manufacturer, offers a wide variety of their own electric blowers. Additionally, they manufacture Wolf products, which further expands the range and applications available.

  2. Petrol Blowers for Commercial Use: For larger-scale cleanups, petrol blowers are the way to go. These powerful machines are designed to handle more significant debris and can efficiently clear large areas. Tandem and Wolf offer a range of petrol blowers suitable for commercial use.

  3. Chainsaws: When dealing with fallen trees or branches, a petrol chainsaw is a valuable tool. The size of the cutting bar required depends on the size of the tree, and you can consult your local dealer for specific specifications. Tandem and Wolf provide chainsaws suitable for various tree sizes.

  4. Trimmers: Whether you need to tidy up the edges of your lawn, trim hedges, or cut through thick brush, electric or petrol trimmers, hedge trimmers, and brush cutters come to the rescue. Tandem and Wolf offer a comprehensive range of trimmers designed to suit different needs.
