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
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.
7. For safety and to prevent damage to the snow thrower, 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 thrower is dependent on the depth and weight of the snow.
Experience will establish the most effective method of using the snow thrower under different
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 thrower dry.
Dry And 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 And 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.
