NOTE: In temperatures below 0 ° F, allow the engine to warm up for several
minutes before blowing snow.
13
21” Width Snow Blower
WARNING: Never run the engine indoors or in enclosed, poorly ventilated
areas. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas.
Keep hands, feet, hair and loose clothing away from any moving parts located
on the engine or the snow thrower. The temperature of muffler and nearby
areas may exceed 150°F. Avoid these areas.
How To Start A Warm Engine (Figure 3)
If an engine has been running and is still warm, leave the choke control (10) in the
RUN position.
If the engine fails to start, follow the instructions “How To Start A Cold Engine”.
How To Remove Snow or Debris From The Auger
Housing (Figure 3)
WARNING: Do not attempt to remove snow or debris that may become
lodged in auger housing without taking the following precautions.
1. Release the auger drive lever (3).
2. Remove (do not turn) the ignition key (4).
3. Do not place your hands in the auger housing (11) or the discharge chute (12). Use
a pry bar to remove any snow or debris.
Snow Throwing Tips
1. This snow thrower will propel itself forward when the handle is raised enough to
cause the auger blades to contact the ground. The auger should stop when auger
control bar is released. If it does not stop, see “How To Adjust The Auger Control
Cable” in the adjustment section.
2. Most efficient snow throwing is accomplished when the snow is removed
immediately after if falls.
3. For complete snow removal, slightly overlap each previous path.
4. Whenever possible, discharge the snow down wind.
5. The distance the snow will be discharged can be adjusted by moving the discharge
chute deflector. Raise the deflector for more distance or lower the deflector for less
distance.
6. In windy conditions, lower the chute deflector to direct the discharged snow close
to the ground where it is less likely to blow into unwanted areas.
14
21” Width Snow Blower
7. For safety and to prevent damage to the snow blower, keep the area to be cleared
free of stones, toys and other foreign objects.
8. Do not use the auger propelling feature when clearing gravel or crushed rock
driveways. Move the handle down to slightly raise the auger.
9. The forward speed of the snow blower is dependent on the depth and weight of the
snow. Experience will establish the most effective method of using the snow blower
under different conditions.
10. After each snow throwing job, allow the engine to idle for a few minutes. The snow
and accumulated ice will melt off the engine.
11. Clean the snow thrower after each use.
12. Remove ice, snow and debris from the entire snow thrower. Flush with water to
remove all salt or other chemicals. Wipe snow blower dry.
Dry & Average Snow
1. Snow up to eight inches deep can be removed rapidly and easily by walking at a
moderate rate. For snow or drifts of a great depth, slow your pace to allow the
discharged chute to dispose of the snow as rapidly as the auger receives the snow.
2. Plan to have the snow discharged in the direction the wind is blowing.
Wet Packed Snow
Move slowly into wet, packed snow. If the wet, packed snow causes the auger to slow
down or the discharge chute begins to clog, back off and begin a series of short back
and forth jabs into the snow. These short back and forth jabs, four to six inches, will
“ belch ” the snow from the chute.
Snow Banks & Drifts
In snow of greater depth than the unit, use the same “jabbing” technique described
above. Turn the discharge chute away from the snow bank. More time will be required
to remove snow of this type than level snow.
