The manual says store the snowblower out of the elements. Do you think it's OK to store the snowblower under my porch outdoors? (I’ll store the batteries inside) I live in Vermont and light rain and snow get through the lattice under the porch. Temps get below 0 F at times. Suggestions?
The light rain shouldn't be an issue, but 0 degrees F might take a toll after a while. The manual (below) only puts conditions on the batteries, and the critical/sensitive components would be the lithium cells and the electronic circuits. Since the snow blower has electronic circuits and wires too; exposing them to freezing temperatures can only shorten their lifespan.
Recommendation: If you can afford the space, I would store the snow blower indoors, or inside your garage.
STORING THE SNOW BLOWERNOTE: When not in use, a 56V battery should be stored in an enclosed area where the temperature will not drop below -4°F (-20°C).
To me that statement , "out of the elements", means store it in a garage or out building. Somewhere it will not be subject to moisture, more then temperature. You want to protect the internal electronics.
