Skid plates are located on each side of the auger housing and adjust the clearance between the scraper bar and the ground surface. Adjust skid plates evenly to proper height for current surface conditions. For removal of snow in normal conditions, such as a paved driveway or sidewalk, place skid plates in the highest position (lowest scraper clearance) to give a 1/8" clearance between the scraper bar and the ground. Use a middle position if the surface to be cleared is uneven. 2. If snow thrower must be operated over gravel surface, use extra caution and be sure skid plates are adjusted to lowest (highest scraper clearance) position. Shut off engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. _) AUGER HOUSING / I t_ £_,/ .--.._......... SCRAPER :," I __ BAR HEX NUTS_ 2. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw tight, wait for a few seconds, remove and read oil level. If necessary, add oil until "FULL' mark on dipstick is reached. Do not overfill. • To change engine oil, see "TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL' in the Maintenance section of this manual. CAUTION: Alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run untiJthe fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage instructions for additional information.

Place throttle control in "FAST" position. 1. 3. Place ON / OFF switch in "ON" position. Grasp the recoil starter handle and slowly pull as much rope out of the starter as possible. 4. Rotate choke control to "FULl" position. 2. 5. Connect the power cord to the engine. Release the recoil starter handle and let it snap back against the starter. 6. Plug the other end of the power cord into a three-hole grounded 120 Volt A.C. receptacle. If the recoil starter has frozen and will not turn the engine, proceed as follows: If the engine still fails to start, repeat the above steps or use the electric starter. SNOW THROWING NOTE: Do not use primer when starting engine with the electric starter. 7. 8. When the engine starts, release the starter button and slowly move the choke control to the "OFF" position. 9. Disconnect the power cord from the receptacle first, then from the engine. Always operate the snow thrower with the engine at full throttle. Full throttle offers the best performance. • Go slower in deep, freezing or heavy wet snow. Use the drive speed control, NOT the throttle, to adjust speed. It is easier and more efficient to remove snow immediately after it falls. • Allow the engine to warm up for a few minutes. Engine will not develop full power until it has reached normal operating temperature. WARM START - ELECTRIC STARTER Follow the steps above, keeping the choke control in the "OFF" position. COLD START - RECOIL STARTER 1. • Push starter button until engine starts. iMPORTANT: Do not crank engine more than five continuous seconds between each time you try to start. Wait 5 to 10 seconds between each attempt. Insert safety ignition key (tied to recoil start cord) into ignition slot until it clicks. DO NOT turn the key. Keep the extra safety ignition key in a safe place. 2. Place throttle control in "FAST" position. 3. Place ON / OFF switch in "ON" position. 4. Rotate choke control to "FULl" position. 5. Push the primer four (4) times if the temperature is below 15°F, or two (2) times if temperature is between 15 ° and 50°R If temperature is above 50°F, priming is not necessary. TIPS • The best time to remove snow is the early morning. At this time the snow is usually dry and has not been exposed to the direct sun and warming temperatures. • Slightly overlap each successive snow will be removed. e Throw snow downwind whenever possible. e Adjust the skid plates to proper height for current snow conditions. See "TO ADJUST SKID PLATES" in this section of this manual. • For extremely heavy snow, reduce the width of snow removal by overlapping previous path and moving slowly. • Keep engine clean and clear of snow during use. This will help air flow and extend engine life. • After snow-throwing is completed, allow engine to run for a few minutes to melt snow and ice off the engine. • Clean the entire snow thrower thoroughly after each use and wipe dry so it is ready for next use. WARNING: path to ensure all Do not operate snow visibility. Throwing snow during a thrower if weather conditions impair heavy, windy snowstorm can blind you and be hazardous to the safe operation of the snow thrower. NOTE: Over priming may cause flooding, preventing the engine from starting. If you do flood the engine, wait a few minutes before attempting to start and DO NOT push the primer. 14 E A CE MAINTENANCE FILL IN DATES AS YOU COMPLETE REGULAR SERVICE Check for Loose Fasteners R O W Clean/Inspect N E v' V v' Snow Thrower V Check / Replace V=Belts RE Lubrication E N v' v' Chart V Check Engine Oil Level Change Engine Oil Inspect Muffler Check / Replace Spark v' Plug Empty Fuel Tank GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS LUBRiCATiON The warranty on this snow thrower does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence.

Engine performance should not be affected at altitudes up to 7,000 feet (2,134 meters). If your engine does not operate properly due to suspected carburetor problems, take your snow thrower to a Sears or other qualified service center. ENGINE SPEED Never tamper with the engine governor, which is factory set for proper engine speed. Overspeeding the engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous and will void the warranty. If you think the engine-governed high speed needs adjusting, contact a Sears or other qualified service center, which has proper equipment and experience to make any necessary adjustments. 19 STORAGE FUEL SYSTEM Immediately prepare your unit for storage at the end of the season or if the unit will not be used for 30 days or more. & IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming in essential fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also, alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. WARNING: Never store the snow thrower with gasoline in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot light as on a furnace, water heater, clothes dryer or gas appliance. AIIowthe engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. SNOW THROWER When snow thrower is to be stored for a period of time, clean it thoroughly, remove all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. Store in a clean, dry area. 1. 2. . Be sure that all nuts, bolts, screws, and pins are securely fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage and wear. Replace if necessary. 5. Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting. Empty the fuel tank by starting the engine and letting it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. • Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur. Use fresh fuel next season. • NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always follow the mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer. Clean entire snow thrower (See "CLEANING" in the Maintenance section of this manual). Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See "TO REPLACE BELTS" inthe Service and Adjustments section of this manual). Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual. 4. • ENGINE OIL Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in the Maintenance section of this manual). CYLINDER . 2. ENGINE See engine manual. . 4. Remove spark plug. Pour one ounce (29 ml) of oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. Pull recoil starter handle slowly a few times to distribute oil. Replace with new spark plug. OTHER • Remove safety ignition key; store it in a safe place. • Do not store gasoline from one season to another. • Replace your gasoline can if your can starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will cause problems. • If possible, store your snow thrower indoors and cover it to protect it from dust and dirt. • Cover your snow thrower with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture.

Torque values are derived at 3060 RPM; horsepower values are derived at 3600 RPM. Actual gross engine power will be lower and is affected by, among other things, ambient operating conditions and engine-to-engine variability. Given both the wide array of products on which engines are placed and the variety of environmental issues applicable to operating the equipment, the gas engine will not develop the rated gross power when used in a given piece of power equipment (actual "on-site" or net power). This difference is due to a variety of factors including, but not limited to, accessories (air cleaner, exhaust, charging, cooling, carburetor, fuel pump, etc.), application limitations, ambient operating conditions (temperature, humidity, altitude), and engine-to-engine variability. Due to manufacturing and capacity limitations, Briggs & Stratton may substitute an engine of higher rated power for this Series engine.

Failure to do so could be hazardous, damage your snow thrower and void your warranty. 45 GENERAL: Craftsman products are warranted to be free from defects in materials or workmanship for a specific time period as set-out below (the "Warranty Period").
