I have a wooden deck. Can I use the snow blower on it without damaging the deck?

Easiest : It is light enough that you can apply a little counterweight as you push to lift the front up off the deck an inch. (we do this on our gravel drive til we have a little snow base down. Or A bit more fuss, buy some skid plates and just attach them.

Ken, the Ego snowblower has a scraper bar that will catch anything sticking up, like splinters or board edges. You could use it, but it would be with care as Prariedog has suggested.
