DRIVE SPEED CONTROL LEVER • • FIG. 16 11 OPERATION TO ADJUST SKID PLATES (See Fig. 17) NOTE: The wrench provided in your parts bag may be used to adjust the skid plates. 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. NOTE: It is not recommended to operate the snow thrower over gravel or rocky surfaces. Objects such as gravel, rocks or other debris, can easily be picked up and thrown by the impeller, which can cause serious personal injury, property damage or damage to the snow thrower. • 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. 1. Shut off engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. 2. Adjust skid plates by loosening the hex nuts, then moving skid plate to desired position. Be sure both plates are adjusted evenly. Tighten securely. BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL (See Fig. 18) The engine on your snow thrower has been shipped, from the factory, already filled with oil. 1. Check engine oil with snow thrower on level ground. 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. ADD GASOLINE (See Fig. 18) • Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck. Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to assure fuel freshness. WARNING: Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open flame. 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 until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage Instructions for additional information. Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur. HIGH POSITION (LOW GROUND CLEARANCE) AUGER HOUSING SCRAPER BAR HEX NUTS SKID PLATE LOW POSITION (HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE) FIG. 17 SCRAPER BAR (See Fig. 17) The scraper bar is not adjustable, but is reversible.

Your snow thrower engine is equipped with a recoil starter. COLD START 1. Insert safety ignition key (packed separately in parts bag) 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. Rotate choke control to “FULL” position. 4. Push the primer four (4) times if the temperature is below 15°F, or two (2) times if temperature is between 15° and 50°F. If temperature is above 50°F, priming is not necessary. 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. 5. Pull recoil starter handle quickly. Do not allow starter rope to snap back. 6. When the engine starts, release the recoil starter handle and slowly move the choke control to the “OFF” position. 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 Follow the steps above, keeping the choke in the “OFF” position. DO NOT push the primer. • • • • • • • • • • • 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. 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 path to ensure all snow will be removed. Throw snow downwind whenever possible. 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: Do not operate snow thrower if weather conditions impair visibility. Throwing snow during a heavy, windy snowstorm can blind you and be hazardous to the safe operation of the snow thrower. BEFORE STOPPING Run the engine for a few minutes to help dry off any moisture on the engine. IF RECOIL STARTER HAS FROZEN If the recoil starter has frozen and will not turn the engine, proceed as follows: 1. Grasp the recoil starter handle and slowly pull as much rope out of the starter as possible. 2. Release the recoil starter handle and let it snap back against the starter. If the engine still fails to start, repeat the above steps. 13 MAINTENANCE GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS The warranty on this snow thrower does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain snow thrower as instructed in this manual. Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your snow thrower. All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual should be checked at least once each season. • Once a year, you should replace the spark plug and check belts for wear. A new spark plug will help your engine run better and last longer. • Follow the maintenance schedule in this manual. NOTE: Use only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to service this unit. Failure to do so can cause the unit to malfunction and pose a risk of injury to the operator. LUBRICATION CHART SAE 5W-30 Motor Oil See “ENGINE” in Maintenance section General Purpose Grease Pivot points BEFORE EACH USE 1. Check engine oil level. 2. Check for loose fasteners. 3. Check controls to be sure they are functioning properly. LUBRICATION Keep your snow thrower well lubricated (See “LUBRICATION CHART”). SNOW THROWER Always observe the safety rules when performing any maintenance. TIRES • Maintain proper air pressure in both tires (14–17 P.S.I. / 19-24.5 N-m). • Keep tires free of gasoline and oil, which can harm rubber. NOTE: To seal tire punctures and prevent flat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant may be purchased from your local parts dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry rot and corrosion. Auger grease fittings Engine oil V-BELTS Check V-belts for deterioration and wear after every 50 hours of operation and replace if necessary. The belts are not adjustable. Replace belts if they begin to slip from wear. (See “TO REMOVE BELT COVER” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). The V-belts on your snow thrower are of special construction and should be replaced by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) belts available from your nearest dealer. Using other than OEM belts can cause personal injury or damage to 14 the snow thrower. MAINTENANCE AUGER GEAR CASE • The gear case was filled with lubricant to the proper level at the factory. The only time the lubricant needs attention is if service has been performed on the gear case. • If lubricant is required, use only Ronex ED #1 grease. • Oil will drain more freely when warm. • Catch oil in a suitable container. NOTE: The left side wheel may be removed from snow thrower for easier access to the oil drain plug and placement of a suitable container. The unit tilted, resting on the frame with the left wheel removed, will help drain any oil trapped inside the engine. (See “TO REMOVE WHEELS” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). 1. Remove safety ignition key and disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug. Place wire where it cannot come in contact with spark plug. 2. Clean area around drain plug. 3. Remove drain plug and drain oil in a suitable container. 4. Install drain plug and tighten securely. 5.

Be sure to install klick pin into proper hole in wheel axle (See “TO REMOVE WHEELS” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). 7. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick. Be careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine. 8. Refill engine with oil through oil dipstick tube. Pour slowly. Do not overfill. For approximate capacity see “PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS” section of this manual. 9. Use gauge on oil fill cap/dipstick for checking level. Be sure dipstick cap is tightened securely for accurate reading. Keep oil at “FULL” line on dipstick. 10. Wipe off any spilled oil. TRACTION DRIVE SYSTEM DO NOT lubricate the drive components inside the snow thrower. The sprockets, hex shafts, drive disc and friction wheel require no lubrication. The bearings and bushings are lifetime lubricated and require no maintenance. CAUTION: Any lubricating of the above components can cause contamination of the friction wheel and damage to the drive system of your snow thrower. ENGINE See engine manual. LUBRICATION Use only high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SG–SL. Select the oil's SAE viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature. MUFFLER Inspect and replace corroded muffler as it could create a fire hazard and/or damage. SPARK PLUG Replace spark plug at the beginning of each season or after every 100 hours of operation, whichever occurs first. Spark plug type and gap setting are shown in the “PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS” section of this manual. NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil. Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the snow thrower is not used for 25 hours in one year. Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Tighten oil fill cap / dipstick securely each time you check the oil level. TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL Determine temperature range anticipated before next oil change. All oil must meet API service classification SG–SL. • Be sure snow thrower is on level surface. CLEANING IMPORTANT: For best performance, keep snow thrower housing free of any dirt or trash. Clean the outside of your snow thrower after each use.

Disengage all controls and move throttle control to STOP position. Wait for all moving parts to stop. 2. Remove safety ignition key and disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug. Place wire where it cannot come in contact with spark plug. FRAME BELT COVER FIG. 20 16 SCREWS SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS TO REPLACE BELTS (See Fig. 21) The auger and traction drive belts are not adjustable. If the belts are damaged or begin to slip from wear, they should be replaced. It is recommended that the belt(s) be replaced by a Sears service centre/department. NOTE: It is recommended that both the auger and traction drive belt be replaced at the same time. The V-belts on your snow thrower are of special construction and should be replaced by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) belts available from your nearest Sears service centre/department. Using other than OEM belts can cause personal injury or damage to the snow thrower. 8. RELIEVE TENSION ON TRACTION DRIVE BELT IDLER and remove traction drive belt from around pulleys. HINT: Insert a 3/8" drive ratchet (in the “ON” position) into the square hole in idler arm and rotate ratchet clockwise to relieve tension. 9. With tension relieved on idler, install new traction drive belt around pulleys and inside belt keepers. 10. Install clutch rod in swing plate; secure with hairpin. 11. Place auger belt around and inside the groove of auger pulley only. 12. While your assistant slowly raises handles to rejoin the auger housing and frame assembly, pull up on the auger belt and squeeze sides together above pulley so belt is fully seated in groove of pulley. 13. Bring snow thrower completely together and check carefully for proper routing of belts. If auger belt has become dislodged from the pulley (by catching the idler arm bracket while bringing snow thrower together), separate the snow thrower and repeat step 10. Belt must be fully seated in pulley groove when bringing the snow thrower together. 14. Install the two (2) hex bolts and tighten securely. 15. INSTALL ENGINE PULLEY - Place belt in pulley groove and slide pulley on crankshaft. Install flat washer, lockwasher and bolt and tighten securely (41-47 N-m torque). Make sure belt is inside belt keeper. 16. INSTALL BELT COVER and two (2) screws. Tighten securely. 17. INSTALL DISCHARGE CHUTE – See “INSTALL DISCHARGE CHUTE / CHUTE ROTATER HEAD” in the Assembly / Pre-Operation section of this manual. WARNING: Belt replacement requires separation of the snow thrower. While separating the auger housing from the frame assembly, it is important that an assistant stand in the operating position and hold the snow thrower handles. Serious personal injury and/or damage to the unit could occur if the snow thrower should fall during the belt changing process. FRAME ASSEMBLY AUGER HOUSING HANDLES BELT KEEPER 1. REMOVE GASOLINE FROM FUEL TANK - Drain gasoline from fuel tank into a suitable container, outdoors, away from fire or flame. Wipe up any spilled gasoline. 2. REMOVE DISCHARGE CHUTE - Loosen locknut securing chute rotator head to mounting bracket only enough to allow chute rotator head to be raised and discharge chute to be removed from snow thrower. 3. REMOVE BELT COVER - See “TO REMOVE BELT COVER” in this section of this manual. 4. REMOVE ENGINE PULLEY - Remove bolt, lockwasher and flat washer securing pulley to engine crankshaft. Remove outside (auger) pulley only from crankshaft. 5. SEPARATE SNOW THROWER - With your assistant standing in the operating position holding the handles, remove the two (2) bolts holding the auger housing and frame together.

REMOVE HAIRPIN FROM CLUTCH ROD and remove clutch rod from swing plate. Tip swing plate forward. 7. REMOVE AUGER BELT from around pulley. FIG. 21 17 SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS NOTE: To seal punctures or prevent flat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant may be purchased from your local parts dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry rot and corrosion. TO REMOVE WHEELS (See Fig. 22) • Remove the klik pin and remove wheel from axle. IMPORTANT: When installing wheel, be sure to use the innermost hole in axle and the wheel hub hole. To disengage drive system from the wheels (for pushing or transporting the snow thrower), remove klik pin from wheel hub and insert pin into the outermost hole in axle only. KLIK PIN ENGINE See engine manual. CARBURETOR Your carburetor is not adjustable. 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 qualified service centre. OUTER HOLE 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 qualified service centre, which has proper equipment and experience to make any necessary adjustments. INNER HOLE WHEEL WHEEL HUB FIG. 22 STORAGE FUEL SYSTEM 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. • 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. 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. 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. Allow the 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. Clean entire snow thrower (See “CLEANING” in the Maintenance section of this manual). 2. Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See “TO REPLACE BELTS” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). 3. Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual. 4. 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. ENGINE OIL Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean engine oil. (See “ENGINE” in the Maintenance section of this manual). CYLINDER 1. Remove spark plug. 2. Pour one ounce (29 ml) of oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. 3. Pull recoil starter handle slowly a few times to distribute oil. 4. Replace with new spark plug. ENGINE See engine manual. 18 STORAGE OTHER • • • • • Cover your snow thrower with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe, which allows condensation to form and will cause your snow thrower to rust. IMPORTANT: Never cover snow thrower while engine/ exhaust area is still warm. 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.
