If possible, remove snow immediately after it falls.
2.
Discharge snow downwind whenever possible.
3.
Slightly overlap each previous path.
4.
Set the skid shoes 1/4” below the shave plate for
normal usage. Adjust them upward for hard-packed
snow and downward when using on gravel or
crushed rock.
Replacing Shear Pins
Each of the four auger spiral assemblies are secured to the
spiral shaft with a shear pin and cotter pin. If the auger
should strike a foreign object or ice jam, the snow thrower
is designed so that the pins may shear. If the augers will
not turn, check to see if the pins have sheared. See Fig. 5-1.
caution: NEVER replace the auger shear pins
with anything other than OEM Part No. 73804155 replacement shear pins. Any damage to
the auger gearbox or other components as a

It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming
in essential fuel system parts of the engine such as the
carburetor, fuel filter, fuel hose, or tank during short-term
storage (15-30 days). To prevent this, treat the fuel system
using a fuel stabilizer.
Fuel stabilizer (such as STA-BIL™ or ULTRA-FRESH™) 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 mix ratio
found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10
minutes after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach the
carburetor.
WARNING: Never store snow thrower with fuel
in tank indoors or in poorly ventilated areas,
where fuel fumes may reach an open flame,
spark or pilot light as on a furnace, water heater,
clothes dryer or gas appliance.
Long-Term Storage
To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be
emptied before storage for 30 days or longer.
1. Run the engine until the fuel tank is empty and it stops
due to lack of fuel. Do not attempt to pour fuel from
the engine.
2. Remove the spark plug and pour one (1) ounce of
engine oil through the spark plug hole into the
cylinder. Cover spark plug hole with a rag and crank the
engine several times to distribute the oil. Replace spark
plug.
WARNING: Never use engine or carburetor
cleaning products in the fuel tank or
permanent damage may occur.

No implied warranty, including any implied warranty of merchantability of fitness for a particular purpose, applies after the

without limitation, expenses incurred for substitute or replacement lawn care services or for rental expenses to temporarily
replace a warranted product.

or consequential damages, or limitations on how long an implied
warranty lasts, so the above exclusions or limitations may not apply
to you.

of the purchase price of the product sold. Alteration of safety
features of the product shall void this warranty. You assume the
risk and liability for loss, damage, or injury to you and your property
and/or to others and their property arising out of the misuse or
inability to use the product.
This limited warranty shall not extend to anyone other than the
original purchaser or to the person for whom it was purchased as a
