Handle fuel with care; it is highly flammable.
WARNING: Always disconnect spark
plug wire and place it where it cannot
contact plug in order to prevent accidental starting when setting up, transporting, adjusting or making repairs.
Never smoke while refueling.
Use an approved fuel container.
Never remove fuel tank cap or add fuel to a running
engine (motor) or hot engine (motor).
Fill fuel tank outdoors with extreme care. Never fill
fuel tank indoors.
WARNING: This snow thrower is for
use on sidewalks, driveways and other
ground level surfaces. Caution should
be exercised while using on sloping
surfaces. Do not use snow thrower on
surfaces above ground level such as
roofs of residences, garages, porches
or other such structures or buildings.
Replace fuel cap securely and wipe up spilled
fuel.
Never store fuel or snow thrower with fuel in the
tank inside of a building where fumes may reach
an open flame or spark.
Check fuel supply before each use, allowing space
for expansion as the heat of the engine (motor)
and/or sun cause fuel to expand.
STATIC ELECTRICITY HAZARD -
WARNING: Snow throwers have exposed rotating parts, which can cause
severe injury from contact, or from material thrown from the discharge chute.
Keep the area of operation clear of all
persons, small children and pets at all
times including startup.
Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck
or trailer bed with a plastic liner. Always place
containers on the ground, away from your vehicle
before filling.
When practical, remove gas-powered equipment
from the truck or trailer and refuel it on the ground.
If this is not possible, then refuel such equipment
on a trailer with a portable container, rather than
from a gasoline dispenser nozzle.
CAUTION: Muffler and other engine
parts become extremely hot during
operation and remain hot after engine
has stopped.To avoid severe burns on
contact, stay away from these areas.
Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel
tankopening at all times, until refueling is complete.
Do not use a nozzle lock-open device.
WARNING: Engine exhaust, some of
its constituents, and certain vehicle
components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California
to cause cancer and birth defects or
other reproductive harm.
If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately.
For all units with electric starting motors use electric
starting extension cords certified CSA/UL. Use only
with a receptacle that has been installed in accordance
with local inspection authorities.

CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL (See Fig. 17)
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 rear 1/2" hex nut
only, then moving skid plate to desired position. Be sure
both plates are adjusted evenly. Tighten securely.
THE ENGINE
The engine on your snow thrower has been shipped, from
the factory, already filled with oil.
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.
•
STARTING
1.
Check engine oil with snow thrower on level ground.
2.
Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert

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. Empty 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

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.
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.
•
Slightly overlap each successive
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.
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
BEFORE STOPPING
Run the engine for a few minutes to help dry off any moisture on the engine.
To avoid possible freeze-up of the starter, proceed as follows:
While the engine is running, pull the recoil starter handle
with rapid, full arm strokes three or four times.
NOTE: The unusual sound made while pulling the recoil
starter handle will not harm the engine or starter.
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.
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.

MAINTENANCE
V-BELTS
TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL
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).
Determine temperature range anticipated before next oil
change. All oil must meet API service classification SF-SJ.
•
Be sure snow thrower is on level surface.
•
•
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
the snow thrower.
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).
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.
•
Oil will drain more freely when warm.
Catch oil in a suitable container.
If lubricant is required, use only Ronex ED #1 grease.
1.
Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug and 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.
TRACTION DRIVE SYSTEM
4.
Install drain plug and tighten securely.
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.
5.
Wipe off any spilled oil from snow thrower and engine.
6.
Install left wheel (if removed for draining oil). 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).
CAUTION: Any lubricating of the above components can cause contamination of the friction
wheel and damage to the drive system of your
snow thrower.
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 SPECI FICATIONS"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.
ENGINE
See engine manual.

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. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe, which allows condensation to form and
will cause your snow thrower to rust.
ENGINE
See engine manual.
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.
Remove spark plug.
IMPORTANT: Never cover snow thrower while engine/
exhaust area is still warm.
