While learning how to use your snow
thrower, pay extra attention to the following
important items:
,/,/ Engine oil is at proper level.
,//
,/,/
Auger Drive Lever- Starts and stops the
auger and impeller (snow gathering and
throwing).
Traction Drive Lever- Propels the snow
thrower forward and in reverse.
Speed Shifter Lever- Selects the speed of
snow thrower (6 speeds forward and 2
speeds reverse).
Crank Assembly - Changes the direction of
snow throwing through the discharge chute.
Chute Deflector - Changes the distance
the snow is thrown.
Discharge Chute - Changes the direction
the snow is thrown.
KIIck Pin - Changes the track drive from
normal to free-wheel drive, which allows the
unit to be transported easily without the engine being started.
Weight Transfer System - When engaged
(by lifting up on the upper handle) it helps
keep the snow thrower in contact with the
ground, and reduces ride up on ice and
hard-packed snow. When roleased (by
pushing down on weight transfer pedal with
the ball of your foot), it eases steering of the
snow thrower.
Make sure gas tank is filled properly
with clean, fresh, unleaded gasoline.
Become familiar with all controls-their
location and function. Operate controls
before starting engine.
Helght Adjust Skids - Adjusts the ground
clearance of the auger housing.
Ignition Key - Must be inserted to start the
engine.
Recoil Starter Handle - Starts the engine
manually.
Choke Control - Used to start a cold engine.
Pdmer Button - Injects fuel dfrectly into the
carburetor manifold for fast starts in cold
weather.
Throttle Control - Controls the engine
speed.
Electric Starter Button - Used to start the
engine using the 120 V electric starter.
Shear Pins- Shear pins are designed to
break ( to protect the machine) if an object
becomes lodged in the auger housing. Use
of a harder bolt will destroy the protection
provided by the shear pin.
Toolbox - Spare shear pins and spacers
are located in toolbox.

In hard packed or heavy snow conditions,
conventional snow throwers tend to ride up
and leave uneven mounds of snow behind.
For these conditions, your new tracked
snow thrower has a unique weight transfer
system (see first figure on page 11)
designed to minimize ride-up.

TIPS
SPARK PLUG:
• For maximum snow thrower efficiency in
removing snow, adjust ground speed,
NEVER the throttle. Go slower in deep,
freezing, or wet snow. If the tracks slip, reduce forward speed. The engine is
designed to deliver maximum performance at full throttle and should be run at

this power setting at all times. Most efficient snow blowing is accomplished when
the snow is removed immediately after it
falls.
• For complete snow removal, slightly overlap each path previously taken. Usa more
overlap in deep snow to prevent overloading.
• The snow should be discharged down
wind whenever possible. In windy conditions, lower the chute deflector to direct
discharged snow close to the ground,
where it is less likely to blow into unwanted areas.
• For normal usage, set the skids so that
the scraper bar is 1/8' above the skids,
For extremely hard-packed snow surfaces,
adjust the skids upward so that the
scraper bar touches the ground.

fill cap/dipstick securely each time you
check the oil level.
NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils 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 every 25 hours and at the
beginning of each season.
• Position the snow thrower so that the oil
drain plug is at the lowest point on the engine. Remove the oil drain plug and the oil
fill cap/dipstick. Drain the oil into a suitable container. Oil will drain more freely
when warm.
• Replace the oil drain plug and tighten securely.
OIL RECOMMENDATION
Only use high quality detergent oil rated
with API service classification SG. Select
the oil's viscosity grade according to your
expected operating temperature:
NOTE: For extreme cold operating conditions of 0 ° and below, use a partial synthetic
0W30 motor oil for easier starting.
SPARK PLUG
• Make sure that the spark plug is tightened
securely into the engine and the spark
plug wire is attached to the spark plug.
• If a torque wrench is available, torque
plug to 18 to 23 foot pounds.
• Clean the area around the spark plug
base before removal to prevent dirt from
entering the engine.
• Clean the spark plug and reset the gap
periodically at .030 inch.
z_CAUTION:

STORAGE
• Thoroughly clean the snow thrower.
• Lubricate all lubrication points (See the
Maintenance section on pages 15-17).
• Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are
securely fastened. Inspect all visible moving parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
• Cover the bare metal parts of the blower
housing auger and the impeller with rust
preventative, such as a spray lubricant.
Always follow instructions on stabilizer containen Then run engine at least 10 minutes
after stabilizer is added to allow mixture to
reach carburetor. Store snow thrower in a
safe place. See Waming above.
You can keep your engine in good operating
condition during storage by:
• Changing oil (Seepage
14).
NOTE: A yearly checkup or tune-up by a
Craftsman Service Center is a good way to
insure that your snow thrower will provide
maximum performance for the next season.
• Lubricating the piston/cylinder area. This
can be done by first removing the spark
plug and squirting a few drops of clean
engine oil into the spark plug hole. Then
cover the spark plug hole with a rag to
absorb oil spray. Next, rotate the engine
by pulling the starter rope fully out two or
three times. Finally, reinstall spark plug
andattach spark plug wire.
ENGINE STORAGE
OTHER
Gasoline must be removed or treated to prevent gum deposits from forming in the tank,
filter, hose, and carburetor during storage.
Also during storage, alcohol blended gasoline that uses ethanol or methanol (sometimes called gasohol) attracts water. It acts
on the gasoline to form acids which damage
the engine.
• if possible, store your snow thrower indoors and cover it to give protection from
dust and dirt.
• If the machine must be stored outdoors,
block up the snow thrower to be sure the
entire machine is off the ground.
• Cover the snow thrower with a suitable
protective cover that does not retain
moisture. Do not use plastic or vinyl.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover snow thrower
• To remove gasoline, run the engine until
the tank is empty and the engine stops.
Then drain remaining gasoline from carburetor by pressing upward on bowl drain
