Do not place hands near rotating parts. Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.

199683

Do not place feet near rotating parts.

• Never allow children to operate the equipment.

• Never allow adults to operate the equipment without proper instruction.

• Disengage all clutches and shift into neutral before starting engine.

• Do not operate equipment without wearing adequate winter outer garments.

• Wear substantial footwear which will protect feet and improve footing on slippery surfaces.

• Check fuel before starting the engine. Do not remove the fuel cap or fill the fuel tank while the engine is running or hot. Do not fill the fuel tank indoors.

Gasoline is an extremely flammable fuel.

• Make sure the snow thrower height is adjusted to clear the type surface it will be used on.

• Do not use the snow thrower without wheel weights attached to the tractor.

• Never make any adjustments while the engine is running.

• Always wear safety glasses or eye shield during operation or while performing adjustment or repair.

• Do not place hands or feet near rotating parts. Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.

• Do not carry passengers.

• After striking a foreign object, stop the engine, remove the wire from the spark plug and then thoroughly inspect the snow thrower for damage. Repair any damage before restarting and operating the snow thrower.

• If the snow thrower starts to vibrate abnormally, stop the engine immediately and check for the cause.

Vibration is generally a warning of trouble.

• Stop the engine whenever you leave the operating position, before unclogging the snow thrower or making any adjustments or inspections.

3

• Take all possible precautions when leaving the unit unattended. Disengage the attachment clutch lever or switch, lower the snow thrower, shift into neutral, set the parking brake, stop the engine and remove the key.

• When cleaning, repairing or inspecting, make certain all moving parts have stopped. Disconnect the spark plug wire and keep it away from the plug to prevent accidental starting.

• Do not run engine indoors except when transporting the snow thrower in or out of the building. Open the outside doors. Exhaust fumes are dangerous.

• Do not clear snow across the face of slopes. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes.

Do not attempt to clear steep slopes. Refer to the slope guide on page 35 of this manual.

• Never operate the snow thrower without guards, plates or other safety protection devices in place.

• Never operate the snow thrower near glass enclosures, automobiles, window wells, drop offs etc. without proper adjustment of the snow thrower discharge angle.

• Never run the snow thrower into snow at high speeds.

• Do not overload the snow thrower capacity by attempting to clear snow at too fast a rate.

• Never operate the snow thrower at high transport speed on slippery surfaces. Look behind and use care when backing up.

• Watch for traffic and stay alert when crossing or operating near roadways.

• Disengage power to the snow thrower when transporting or when not in use.

• Place the discharge chute (facing forward) onto the ring. Place the anti-rotation bracket on top of the chute flange, aligning it with the holes on the right hand side of the flange. Attach the three chute keepers (right side up as shown) to the bottom of the flange using six 1/4" x 1" hex bolts, 1/4" flat washers and 1/4" flanged lock nuts. Tighten carefully so that the nuts are snug but do not dig into the plastic chute keepers.

• Place the plastic cap onto the short end of the antirotation bracket.

• Position the crank rod spiral (see figure 24 on page

14) so that it does not rub against the bottoms of the notches in the chute flange. Tighten the nuts.

• Check if the crank rod rotates the chute freely. If not, loosen by 1/4 turn each of the six hex bolts holding the chute keepers to the chute flange.

• Secure the control cables to the crank rod support tube using two nylon ties.

BEFORE STARTING

• Use the end of assembly checklist to verify that all instructions have been properly completed.

• Make sure the skid shoes are adjusted to maintain adequate ground clearance between the snow thrower and the type of surface to be cleared. (Refer to the Service and Adjustments section.)

• Make sure the tractor engine has the correct oil for winter operation (SAE 5W-30). Refer to tractor owner's manual.

HOW TO START YOUR SNOW THROWER

• The tractor should be sitting with the engine running at full throttle. Move the attachment clutch to the engaged position, starting the snow thrower before the tractor clutch is engaged.

HOW TO STOP YOUR SNOW THROWER

• To stop the snow thrower, disengage the tractor's attachment clutch lever for manual clutches or the clutch switch for electric clutches. Refer to your tractor owner's manual.

HOW TO USE YOUR SNOW THROWER

CAUTION

: Never direct discharge towards bystanders or windows. Do not allow anyone in front of unit.

CONTROLLING SNOW DISCHARGE

• To control the direction snow is thrown, the discharge chute has 180 degrees of rotation. Turn the crank rod to rotate the chute to the right or the left.

• To control the distance snow is thrown, the upper section of the discharge chute pivots up and down.

Push forward on the chute tilt handle to pivot the chute down, decreasing the distance snow is thrown.

Pull back on the handle to pivot the chute up, increasing the distance snow is thrown.

RAISING AND LOWERING

• Use the toggle switch attached to the side of the tractor's dash to raise or lower the snow thrower. The winch motor will shut off when the snow thrower is in either the up or down position.

CAUTION

: Do not operate the snow thrower without rear wheel weights attached to the tractor to provide extra traction and stability.

REMOVING SNOW

Snow removal conditions vary greatly from light fluffy snowfall to wet heavy snow. Operating instructions must be flexible to fit the conditions encountered. The operator must adapt the lawn tractor and snow thrower to depth of snow, wind direction, temperature and surface conditions.

• Before beginning operation, thoroughly inspect the area of operation and remove all door mats, sleds, boards, wires and other foreign objects.

• The spiral auger speed is directly related to engine speed. For maximum snow removal and discharge, maintain high engine r.p.m. (full throttle). It is advisable to operate the lawn tractor at a slow ground speed

(1st gear) for safe and efficient snow removal.

• In deep, drifted or banked snow it will be necessary to use full throttle and a slow ground speed (1st gear).

Drive forward into the snow, depress the tractor's clutch-brake pedal and allow the spiral auger to clear the snow. Repeat this method until a path is cleared.

On the second pass, overlap the first enough to allow the snow thrower to handle the snow without repeated stopping and starting of forward motion.

• In extremely deep snow, raise the snow thrower up to the transport position to remove the top layer of snow. Drive forward only until the front tires reach the uncleared bottom layer of snow. Stop and allow the snow to clear out of the spiral auger. Back up and then lower the snow thrower to the ground. Drive the tractor forward until the snow again becomes too deep. Repeating this process into and out of drifts will eventually clear even the deepest of snow piles.

• If the snow thrower becomes clogged with snow or jammed with a foreign object, disengage the snow thrower immediately and shut off the tractor engine.

Use a wooden stick to unclog the snow thrower before resuming operation.

DANGER

: Shut off engine and disengage snow thrower before unclogging discharge chute. Unclog using a wooden stick, not your hands.

OPERATING TIPS

• Discharge snow down wind whenever possible.

• To help prevent snow from sticking to the snow thrower, allow the snow thrower to reach outdoor temperature before using it. A light coat of wax may also be applied to the inside surface of the snow thrower housing and discharge chute.

• Use tire chains to improve traction.

• Use rear wheel weights to improve traction.

• Before the first snowfall, remove all stones, sticks and other objects which could become hidden by the snow.

Permanent obstacles should be marked for visibility.

• Overlap each pass slightly to assure complete snow removal.

Service Dates

CHECK SCRAPER AND SHOES FOR WEAR

(Refer to figures 33 and 34 on page 20.)

• The scraper plate and skid shoes on the bottom of the snow thrower are subject to wear. To prevent damage to the spiral auger housing, replace plate and shoes before wear is excessive.

SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS

CAUTION

: Before servicing or adjusting the snow thrower, shut off the engine, remove the spark plug wire(s), set the parking brake and remove the key from the tractor ignition.

REPLACING AUGER BELT

• Disengage the tractor's attachment clutch.

• Lower the snow thrower to the ground.

• Release the spring tension from the auger belt idler arm on the bottom of the clutch/idler assembly.

• Remove the auger drive belt from the clutch/idler assembly and from the spiral auger housing.

• Install new belt over top of large auger drive pulley and under the two side idler pulleys. Twist the belt 1/4 turn to seat the "V" of the belt in the groove of each idler pulley. Refer to figure 29 on page 16.

• Assemble the belt onto the clutch/idler assembly.

ADJUSTING SKID SHOES

• The skid shoes regulate the distance between the scraper plate and the plowing surface. When removing snow from a gravel driveway or and uneven surface, keep the scraper plate as high above the surface as possible to prevent possible damage to the spiral auger. On a blacktop or concrete surface, keep the scraper plate as close to the surface as possible.

• To adjust the skid shoes, raise the snow thrower off the ground and place a block under each end of the scraper plate. Loosen the six hex nuts securing the skid shoes to the housing. Adjust the skid shoes up or down and retighten the nuts securely. Adjust both skid shoes to the same height to keep the housing and the scraper plate level. See figure 33.

GEAR HOUSING SKID SHOE

ADJUSTING LIFT HEIGHT, LEVELING

The snow thrower is equipped with two threaded lift links for adjusting the lift height and leveling of the snow thrower in the raised position.

TO ADJUST THE LIFT HEIGHT:

• Raise the snow thrower to the highest position.

• Check the clearance between the rear of the idler bracket (item 24, page 22) and the lift shaft assembly

(item 1, page 24). A minimum 1/16" clearance in the raised position is necessary to avoid possible damage to the lift system.

• To increase the lift height, tighten the nuts on the bottom of both lift links equally until the maximum lift height is obtained. The maximum lift height is approximately 4 inches ground clearance for GT tractors and 3 inches for YT tractors.

TO LEVEL WHEN RAISED:

• To keep the snow thrower level in the raised position, loosen the nut at the bottom of the lift link on the high side of the snow thrower until the snow thrower is approximately level. It is not critical that the snow thrower be exactly level in the raised position, it will level out when it is lowered to the ground.

FIGURE 33

SPIRAL AUGERS

• The spiral augers are secured to the auger shaft with two shear bolts and nylock nuts. The bolts are designed to shear if an object or ice jams the augers.

• If the augers will not turn, check to see if the shear bolts have sheared. See figure 34. Two replacement shear bolts and nylock nuts have been provided with the snow thrower. For future use order part number

710-0890A shear bolt and number 47810 nylock nut.

20

STORAGE RECOMMENDATIONS

• Lower the snow thrower to the ground.

• Remove the snow thrower from the tractor.

• Clean the snow thrower thoroughly. Wash off any salt deposit which may have dried on the thrower and housing.

• Any bare metal that has become exposed should be painted or coated with a light oil to prevent rust.

• Store in a dry place.

REMOVING THE SPIRAL AUGER HOUSING

• Lower the snow thrower to the ground.

• Release the spring tension from the auger belt idler arm on the bottom of the clutch/idler assembly.

• Remove the auger drive belt from the clutch/idler assembly. See figure 30 on page 16.

• Disconnect the wires of the snow thrower limit switches from the wire harness attached to the tractor.

• Remove the two clevis pins that attach the snow thrower to the tractor. See figure 26 on page 15.

• Pull the snow thrower off of the front of the tractor.

STORAGE

PARTS TO REMOVE AT END OF SEASON

• Remove the clutch/idler assembly. (The two hanger brackets and the two shoulder bolts may be left attached to the tractor frame.)

• Remove the drive belt from the engine pulley.

• If a front mounted attachment is to be used, remove the side plates and the winch and bracket assembly from the tractor. Be sure to re-install any bolts that were removed from the tractor frame when the snow thrower was installed.
