Getting your vehicle ready for winter is a yearly occurrence in Medford. One tradition that many residents do each year is changing their summer wiper to winter wipers.

Summer wipers are meant to be as light as possible and they also are optimized for rain only. They have a latticed frame that allows them to be much lighter than a solid frame would be, but this would get jammed full of ice during winter. Winter wiper blades have a solid rigid construction that allows them to efficiently wipe away any ice, snow, or rain that gets in their path. Summer wipers use a lighter rubber compound while winter blades use a thicker synthetic compound that is less affected by cold winter days.
