SNOW THROWER PREPARATION
Step 1 - ADD OIL
The snow thrower is shipped without oil. User must add the proper amount of oil before operating the
snow blower for the first time. The oil capacity of the engine crankcase is 20 fl. oz. For general use, we
recommend 5W, 4-stroke engine oil.
ENGINE OIL RECOMMENDATIONS
Select good quality detergent oil bearing the American Petroleum Institute (API) service classifications
SJ, SL, or SM (synthetic oils may be used). Use the ASE viscosity grade of oil from the following chart
that matches the starting temperature anticipated before the next oil changes.
To add oil, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the snow thrower is on a level surface. Tilting the snow
thrower to assist in filling will cause oil to flow into engine areas
and will cause damage. Keep snow thrower level!
2. Remove the dipstick from the engine.
3. Add oil slowly as to not overflow the unit.
4. To check the oil level, wipe the dipstick with a clean rag. Insert the
dipstick into the oil fill opening without screwing it in. Remove the
dipstick to check the oil mark.
5. Slowly add more oil and repeat step 4 until the oil mark reaches to
the top of the dipstick. Do not overfill the crankcase.
6. Check for oil leaks. Tighten dipstick firmly.
Step 2 - ADD GASOLINE
Use fresh (within 30 days from purchase), lead-free gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane rating. Do not
mix oil with gasoline.
To add gasoline, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the snow thrower is on a level surface.
2. Unscrew fuel tank cap and set aside. NOTE: The fuel cap may be tight and hard to unscrew.
3. Slowly add unleaded gasoline to the fuel tank. Be careful not to overfill. The capacity of the fuel tank
is 0.66 gallons. NOTE: Do not fill the fuel tank to the very top. Gasoline will expand and spill over
during use even with the fuel cap in place.
4. Reinstall fuel cap and wipe clean any spilled gasoline with a dry cloth.
IMPORTANT:
• Never use an oil/gasoline mixture.
• Never use old gasoline.
• Avoid getting dirt or water into the fuel tank.
• Gasoline can age in the tank and make starting difficult. Never store snow thrower for extended
periods of time with fuel in the tank or the carburetor.
• NOTE: After completing the above preparation, the engine is ready to be started.

OPERATING YOUR SNOW THROWER
The following section describes steps to use your Snow Thrower for use. If after reading this section, you
are unsure about how to perform any of the steps please call 1-800-791-9458 for customer service.
Failure to perform these steps properly can damage your Snow Thrower or shorten its life.
Review the SAFETY section in this manual before operating the engine and snow thrower.
WARNING! Keep the area of operation free from foreign objects that can be thrown by the auger and/or
impeller blades. Perform a thorough inspection of the area since some objects may be hidden from view
by surrounding snow. If the Snow Thrower hits an obstruction or picks up a foreign object during use,
stop the Snow Thrower, remove the obstruction, and inspect it for damage. Repair or replace any
damaged parts before restarting and operating you Snow Thrower.
• Keep children, pets, and bystanders away from the area of operation. Be aware that the normal noise
of the Snow Thrower when turned on may make it difficult for you to hear approaching people.
• Start your clearing path by throwing snow in a back and forth motion. To clear in the opposite
direction, stop your Snow Thrower and pivot it on its wheels to face the opposite direction. Make sure
to overlap clearing paths.
• Determine the direction of the wind. If possible, move in the same direction as the wind so that the
snow is not thrown against the wind, back into your face and on the just cleared path.
WARNING! DO NOT USE YOUR HANDS TO UNCLOG CHUTE. Stop the motor before
removing debris. Use the supplied clean out tool to unclog the chute. Do not walk in front of your running
Snow Thrower. Do not direct discharged snow towards bystanders.
• Do not apply additional man-made load to the engine since this may damage the engine.
• Some parts of your Snow Thrower may freeze under extreme temperature conditions. Do not attempt
to operate your Snow Thrower with frozen parts. If the parts freeze while your Snow Thrower is in
use, stop your Snow Thrower and inspect it for frozen parts. Thaw all parts before restarting and
operating your Snow Thrower. Never force parts or controls that have frozen. Never use an open
flame of any sort to thaw frozen parts.
Pre-Operation Inspection - IMPORTANT!!!
Before using your Snow Thrower for the first time, check the following:
• Have you read and followed all setup and operation procedures for the engine as outlined in the
ENGINE manual?
• Has the engine been filled with oil and gasoline to the proper level?
• Are all snow thrower components properly attached and assembled?
• Are there any broken or damaged parts?
• Are all fasteners tight?
• Are the tires inflated to the proper pressure?

791-9458 M-F 9-5 EST or Canada (888) 980-4937 M-F 9-5 EST.
6. Once the engine has started, slowly return the choke lever all the way to the “OPEN” position (Left
side).
7. Allow the engine to run for several minutes before using snow thrower.
CLEARING SNOW
Once your Snow Thrower has been running outside for several minutes, it is now ready for use. Make
sure the path in front of your Snow Thrower is free from people, animals, objects, and all other
obstructions except for snow.
Adjust the chute outlet to the desired direction.
Turn the chute rotation handle clockwise or counter-clockwise until the desired position is reached.
WARNING! Never direct the chute outlet toward people or animals. While snow may seem harmless, it
can contain rocks or other debris that can cause serious injury when projected through the chute.
1. Engage/depress the auger control handle to start the augers and impeller turning.
2. Set the desired direction and speed using the speed control lever.
3. Engage/depress the drive control handle and direct the snow thrower into the snow to be cleared.
NOTICE: Do not change speed positions while the drive is engaged. Disengage the drive control
handle BEFORE changing speeds or directions. If the snow is deeper than the height of the auger, remove
it in several steps taking narrower swaths. Make several passes with the auger overlapping the cleared
areas and reduce forward speed.
For the best clearing efficiency, clear snow before it melts, refreezes and hardens. Hard packed and wet
snow can be very difficult to clear.
Clearing wet heavy snow can be a challenge, depending on ambient temperature, humidity levels, and
overall climate conditions including actual snow conditions, there may be no 100% solution as snow may
be too wet or compacted to move or throw. Wet snow will tend to clog and stick more to the augers and
chute. Keep the auger engaged as much as possible when clearing wet snow to help prevent clogging.
WARNING! If snow is filled with foreign material, damage to the snow thrower may result. Avoid snow
with foreign materials.
STOPPING
1. Pull out the switch key to stop the engine. Keep in a safe place. Must be reinserted to start the engine.
2. Remove snow from all Snow Thrower surfaces including the auger housing and chute areas.
16
MAINTENANCE
WARNING! Never perform maintenance while your Snow Thrower is running. Turn OFF the engine
before performing any maintenance tasks on your Snow Thrower.
Proper maintenance of your Snow Thrower will help prolong its life. Please perform the following
maintenance procedures as required.
Do not attempt to repair your Snow Thrower unless you have the proper tools and instructions for
disassembly and repair.
Check the bolts at frequent intervals for proper tightness to ensure that the equipment is in safe working
condition.
After each snow removal session, run the Snow Thrower for a few minutes to prevent the collector
/impeller from freezing. Stop the engine, wait for all revolving parts to stop completely, and wipe residual

CHECKING THE OIL
Check the oil level of the engine according to the Recommended Maintenance Schedule above. The
engine should be checked before each use for proper oil level. This is a critical step for proper engine
starting. To check the oil level:
1. Make sure the snow blower is on a level surface.
2. Clean around oil fill. Remove dipstick and wipe the
dipstick with a clean rag. Insert the dipstick into the oil
fill opening without screwing in. Remove the dipstick to
check the oil mark. Add oil if the oil mark covers less
than one half of the dipstick.
3. Slowly add more oil and repeat step 2 until the oil mark
reaches to the top of dipstick. Do not over fill the
crankcase.
4. Reinstall oil dipstick.
17
CHANGING/ADDING OIL
Change the oil according to the Recommended Maintenance Schedule. Change the oil when the engine is
warm. This will allow for complete drainage. Change oil more often if operating under heavy load. It is
also necessary to drain the oil from the crankcase if it has become contaminated with water or dirt. The oil
capacity of the engine is 20 fl.oz. Add oil when the oil level is low. For general use, we recommend 5W,
4-stroke engine oil.
To drain oil, follow these steps:
1. Place a container underneath the engine to catch oil as it drains.
2. Using a wrench, unscrew the oil drain plug. Allow all the oil to drain
from the engine.
3. Reinstall the oil drain plug and tighten with a wrench.
Dipstick
Drain Bolt
To refill the crankcase with oil, follow these steps:
1. Make sure the snow blower is on a level surface. Tilting the snow blower to assist in filling will cause oil
to flow into engine areas and will cause damage. Keep snow blower level!
2. Remove the dipstick from the engine.
3. Using a funnel or appropriate dispenser, add the correct amount of oil (20 fl.oz) into the crankcase. The
engine is equipped with a low oil sensor and will not start if the amount of oil is insufficient.
4. Reinstall dipstick.
NOTE: Never dispose of used motor oil in the trash or down a drain. Please call a local recycling center or
auto garage to arrange oil disposal.
