ASSEMBLY
IMPORTANT:
A proper initial installation will give you years of
satisfactory service on your equipment. Please
read carefully following instructions that have
been specially included to help you and ensure
you are satisfied with your purchase.
WARNING: Unfortunately, snowblowers will
be faced with forgotten or hidden objects
under the snow, such as : chain, tires,
stones, pieces of wood, etc. In spite of all
our efforts, machines are not built to resist
all those conditions.
Danger: Tractors Too Big
It is dangerous to use a tractor that is too big and
powerful. The tractor will always be able to
overload the blower, even if the machine is
already at maximum capacity. Furthermore,
tractors being very high, the driveline angles will
be excessive which means the universal joints
will be very vulnerable and the life of the driveline
will be dramatically reduced.
How to Determine Driveline Angles
joint angles, it is recommended to adjust the
three point hitch at the furthest point from the
tractor recommended by the manufacturer
The universal joint angle is directly related with
the life of driveline. In order to reduce the angle, it
is necessary to increase the distance between
the snowblower and the tractor.

ASSEMBLY
Equal Angles at Driveline Joints
Recommended
Unequal Angles at Driveline Joints
Avoid
Angles at Each End of Driveline
A popular habit is to change the snowblower
angle in order to obtain a better scraping effect.
This practice can become harmful to the
driveline since the angle at each end is
unequal. This results in a fan speed variation as
well as a drastic increase of load on cross and
bearings. To be avoided: It is recommended to
always keep tractor driveline and snowblower
input shaft parallel.
Figure 5
Determining Driveline Length
IMPORTANT: Before using the equipment,
make sure the driveline is not too long. At
working position, the two half drivelines must
intersect each other sufficiently to insure
maximum efficiency but there must not be any
interference.
1. To determine the "L" length for your tractor
model first find the "X" factor by measuring
the horizontal distance between the end of
the tractor's drive shaft and the end of the
snowblower's driven shaft when the
snowblower is in transport position as shown
on Figure 5.
2. Choose in the table below the "Y" factor
according to the tractor category and deduct
that number from "X" to determine "L" which
is the center-to-center length between the
universal joints.

before. To obtain the proper distance "A"
shown on Figure 7, cut the guard
according to the following table:
NOTE: Before cutting, make sure the two
shafts intersect by at least 7 3/4" when in
working position that is when the snowblower
rests on the ground.
3. Hold the two half-shaft side by side and
locate the "L" length between the two
center-to-center half-shaft universal joints.

OPERATION
GENERAL PREPARATION
ADJUSTMENTS
1. Read the operator’s manual carefully before
using the tractor and snowblower. Be
thoroughly familiar with the controls and
proper use of the equipment. Know how to
stop the unit and disengage the controls
quickly.
2. Make sure the snowblower is clear of snow
before engaging the driveline.
3. Make sure the auger and fan operate freely.
4. Check the oil level in the worm Gearbox and if
necessary, add 80W90 SAE gear oil, AGMA
5EP oil or equivalent.
5. Check the two shear bolts, one on the driving
shaft, and the one on the PTO, for proper
tightness.
6. Adjust so that the snowblower skid shoes run
level.
7. Wear adequate winter outer garments while
operating equipment.
Reduction Chain Tension Adjustment
OPERATING CONTROLS
Work and Travel Speed
Working ground speed will depend on the depth
and density of the snow to be cleared. Normally,
ground speed will range from 4 to 7 MPH for light,
dry snowfalls 3 to 6 inches, and 1 to 3 MPH for
heavy, wet or drifted snow. To transport,
disengage the drive shaft and raise the
snowblower to full transport height.
Raising and Lowering the Snowblower
Move the three point lever on right hand side of
seat down or forward to lower, and up or rearward
to raise.
(Figure 12)
The premature wear of the chain may be caused by
tension being too tight. It is therefore important not to
tighten chain to its maximum.
 To adjust the tension on the drive chain, loosen the
bolt (item 1), securing the idler sprocket to the
snowblower housing.
 To tighten the chain, lower the bolt.
Leave
approximately 1/8" deflection in one span of the
chain. Retighten securely the bolt holding the idler
sprocket.
Skid Shoe Adjustment
(Figure 12)
Adjust the skid shoes so that the snowblower runs
level and according to the surface conditions so that
stones are not thrown with the snow.
Adjust both skid shoes to the same height to keep the
cutting edge level and adjust upwards for smooth
surfaces.
Loosen skid shoe bolts (item 2) and adjust according
to instructions below, and securely tighten bolts:
Clearance between cutting edge and surface:
 Paved surface: Insert bolts in lower hole.
 Uneven or gravel surface: Insert bolts according
to distance needed: 1/2" - middle hole
1" - upper hole

WARNING
To avoid personal injury, be sure the tractor
engine is off, the drive shaft disengaged, and
all movement has stopped before making any
adjustments.
OM 0331-A
21
Manual Deflector Adjustment
Set the angle of deflection according to the distance
the snow must be thrown. To set the deflector angle,
remove the adjusting pipe hairpin and adjust the
adjusting rod to the desired deflector angle. Secure
with the adjusting pipe hairpin.
OPERATION
SNOW REMOVAL METHODS
When removing snow, do not use the snowblower as a dozer blade to push snow. Let the snowblower
work its way through deep drifts. If the speed of your tractor is too fast, the snowblower may become
overloaded and clog. For best results, raise the snowblower and remove a top layer of snow. A second
pass with the snowblower will remove the remaining snow.
IMPORTANT: Use full RPM power when removing wet, sticky snow. Low RPM power will tend to clog
the chute.
WARNING
Do not use hands or feet to unclog chute. Do not attempt to clear clogged chute of snow while
tractor engine is running. If the chute clogs, disengage the drive shaft, shut off the tractor engine,
remove the ignition key, wait for all movement to stop, and then clear the snow from the chute.
A definite pattern of operation is required to thoroughly clean the snow area. These patterns will avoid
throwing snow in unwanted places as well as eliminating a second removal of snow
Where it is possible to throw the snow to the left
and right (above), as on a long driveway, it is
advantageous to start in the middle. Plow from
one end to the other, throwing snow to both sides
without changing the direction of the discharge
guide.
OM 0331-A
22
If the snow can only be thrown to one side of the
driveway or sidewalk (above), start on the
opposite side. At the end of the first pass, rotate
the discharge guide 180 degrees for the return
pass. At the end of each succeeding pass, rotate
the discharge guide 180 degrees to maintain
direction of throw in the same area.

Shearbolts
Check the shearbolts indicated on the figure
below at frequent intervals for proper tightness
to be sure the blower is in safe working
condition. If the shearbolts need replacement,
use the following parts only:
WARNING
Provide adequate blocking before working
under the snowblower when in the raised
position.
