Without the engine running, press down
(engage) both clutch levers. Release
attachment clutch lever. Attachment clutch
should remain engaged until traction clutch
lever is released, then both clutches must
disengage.
Keep tires at pressure listed on the tire
sidewall. See Check Tire Pressure (926302,
310, 311, 312, 313) on page 12.
CHECK AUGER GEARCASE
CHECK FASTENERS
Make sure all hardware is tightened properly.
CHECK CLUTCH OPERATION
Auger / impeller must stop within 5 seconds
when attachment clutch/impeller brake lever
is released.
Wheels must stop quickly when traction drive
clutch lever is released.
If clutches do not engage or disengage
properly, adjust or repair before operation.
See Attachment Clutch/Brake Adjustment on
page 29 and Traction Drive Clutch
Adjustment on page 32.
CHECK CLUTCH SPRING
ADJUSTMENT
IMPORTANT: Proper oil level must be
maintained.
Gear cases are filled to the correct level at
the factory. Unless there is evidence of
leakage, no additional lubricant should be
required. Check oil level each season or
every 25 hours of operation.
To ensure adequate lubricant level:
1. Remove filler plug (Figure 19). Lubricant
must be at least up to bottom of lubricant
filler hole with unit resting on a levelsurface.
2. Add lubricant if required. Allow oil to
drain to level of plug and replace plug.
IMPORTANT: Use only Ariens special gear
lubricant L-2 (Part Number 00008000).
Gearcase filler plug may require an
application of Loc-Tite® 565 thread sealant
with repeated servicing.
Make sure the attachment clutch and traction
drive clutch are adjusted to the range
specified in Check Clutch Spring Adjustment
on page 24.

GENERAL LUBRICATION
CHANGE ENGINE OIL
Change oil after first 2 hours of operation,
thereafter change oil every 25 hours (more
often if required). Refer to Engine Manual for
detailed instructions.
Run engine just prior to changing oil. Warm
oil will flow more freely and carry away more
contamination. Remove the oil drain plug
from the rear of the unit and tip the unit back
to help drain all the oil.
IMPORTANT: Wipe each fitting clean before
and after lubrication. Do not wipe gearcase
filler plug; wiping the gearcase filler plug may
remove thread sealant and cause leaks.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT allow grease or oil to
get on friction disc, friction plate or belts.
NOTE: Apply Ariens Hi-Temp Grease or
equivalent to the lubrication fittings. See
SERVICE PARTS on page 37.
Sno-Thro should be lubricated (Figure 20) at
beginning of season or every 25 operating
hours.

STORAGE
OS7229
Fuel System
Gasoline left in the fuel system for extended
periods without a stabilizer will deteriorate,
resulting in gum deposits in the system.
These deposits can damage the carburetor
and the fuel hoses, filter and tank. Prevent
deposits from forming in the fuel system
during storage by adding a quality fuel
stabilizer to the fuel. Follow the
recommended mix ratio found on the fuel
stabilizer container.
To treat the fuel system for storage:
1. Add fuel stabilizer (Ariens p/n 00592900)
according to manufacturers’ instructions.
2. Run engine for at least 10 minutes after
adding stabilizer to allow it to reach the
carburetor.
NEVER store the engine with fuel in the fuel
tank inside of a building with potential
sources of ignition.
