order.
•
WARNING: Drain fuel into an approved
container outdoors, away from open flame.
Allow engine to cool. Extinguish cigarettes,
cigars, pipes, and other sources of ignition
prior to draining fuel. Fuel left in engine for
extended period deteriorates and will cause
serious starting problems.
Augers
The augers are secured to the spiral shaft with two
shear bolts and hex lock nuts. Refer to Figure 14. If you
hit a foreign object or ice jam, the snow thrower is
designed so that the bolts may shear. If the augers will
not turn, check to see if the bolts have sheared.
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 mix ratio found on
stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 minutes
after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach carburetor. Do
not drain carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
IMPORTANT: NEVER replace the auger shear bolts with
standard hex bolts. Any damage to the auger gearbox
or other components as a result of doing so will NOT be
covered by your snow throwers warranty.
Off-season Storage
•
WARNING: Never store the machine or fuel
container indoors where there is an open
flame, spark or pilot light such as on a water
heater, furnace, clothes dryer or other gas
appliances.
•
•
If unit is to be stored over 30 days, prepare for storage
as follows:
•
•
Drain carburetor by pressing upward on bowl drain,
located below the carburetor cover.
Remove all dirt from exterior of engine and
equipment.
Remove spark plug and pour one ounce of engine
oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. Cover
spark plug hole with rag. Crank engine several
times to distribute oil. Replace spark plug.
Follow lubrication recommendations on page 11.
NOTE: When storing any type of power equipment in
an unventilated or metal storage shed, care should be
taken to rust proof the equipment. Using a light oil or
silicone, coat the equipment, especially any chains,
springs, bearings and cables.
Remove gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to
prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts
and causing possible malfunction of engine.
Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine
stops due to lack of fuel.

MANUFACTURER’S LIMITED WARRANTY FOR:
TWO-YEAR RESIDENTIAL
ONE-YEAR COMMERCIAL
Proper maintenance of your Cub Cadet equipment is the owner’s responsibility. Follow the instructions in your
operator’s manual for correct lubricants and maintenance schedule. Your Cub Cadet dealer carries a
complete line of quality lubricants and filters for your equipment’s engine, transmission, chassis and
attachments.
Riding mowers, lawn tractors, garden tractors, Cub Cadet
attachments and home maintenance products
This limited warranty for residential users, covers any defect in materials or workmanship in your Cub Cadet
equipment for two years from the date of purchase for the first user purchaser. We will replace or repair any
part or parts without charge through your authorized Cub Cadet dealer.
Batteries have a one-year prorated limited warranty with 100% replacement during the first three months.
V-belts for either the traction drive or any attachments are covered for one year only.
Cub Cadet equipment used commercially is warranted for one year only.

The warranty does not cover routine maintenance items such as lubricants, filters (oil, fuel, air and hydraulic),
cleaning, tune-ups, brake and/or clutch inspection, adjustments made as part of normal maintenance, blade
sharpening, set-up, abuse, accidents and normal wear. It does not cover incidental costs such as transporting
your equipment to and from the dealer, telephone charges or renting a product temporarily to replace a
warranted product.
There is no other express warranty.
