WARNING
This unit is a “two-stage” snowthrower. The first
stage is the auger, which feeds the snow back into
the impeller housing. The second stage is the
impeller, which throws the snow out the discharge
chute. If bodily contact is made with the auger or
impeller when they are rotating, severe personal
injury will occur. To avoid injury, keep others and
yourself away from the auger and the discharge
chute whenever the engine is running. Read and
follow all of the safety rules and warnings in this
manual.

SHEAR PIN REPLACEMENT,
If the auger strikes an object which could cause damage
to the unit, the shear pin will break. This protects the
gear box and other parts from damage. The shear pins
are shown in figure 15. To replace, install a new shear
pin and cotter pin. Spread the legs of the new cotter pin
fully. Do not replace shear pins with bolts, screws or a
harder shear pin.
