SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Safe Handling of Gasoline
To avoid personal injury or property damage use extreme care in
handling gasoline. Gasoline is extremely flammable and the vapors are
explosive. Serious personal injury can occur when gasoline is spilled
on yourself or your clothes which can ignite. Wash your skin and
change clothes immediately.
•
Use only an approved gasoline container.
•
Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes and other sources of
ignition.
•
Never fuel machine indoors.
•
Never remove gas cap or add fuel while the engine is hot or
running.
•
Allow engine to cool at least two minutes before refueling.
•
Never over fill fuel tank. Fill tank to no more than ½ inch below
bottom of filler neck to provide space for fuel expansion.
•
Replace gasoline cap and tighten securely.
•
If gasoline is spilled, wipe it off the engine and equipment. Move
machine to another area. Wait 5 minutes before starting the
engine.
•
Never store the machine or fuel container inside where there is an
open flame, spark or pilot light (e.g. furnace, water heater, space
heater, clothes dryer etc.).
•
Allow machine to cool at least 5 minutes before storing.
•
Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck or trailer bed
with a plastic liner. Always place containers on the ground away
from your vehicle before filling.
•
If possible, remove gas-powered equipment from the truck or
trailer and refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, then refuel
such equipment on a trailer with a portable container, rather than
from a gasoline dispenser nozzle.
•
Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank or
container opening at all times until fueling is complete. Do not use
a nozzle lock-open device.

OPERATION
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not put hands or feet near rotating parts, in the auger/impeller
housing or chute assembly. Contact with the rotating parts can
amputate hands and feet.
The auger/impeller control lever is a safety device. Never bypass
its operation. Doing so makes the machine unsafe and may cause
personal injury.
The control levers must operate easily in both directions and
automatically return to the disengaged position when released.
Never operate with a missing or damaged chute assembly. Keep
all safety devices in place and working.
Never run an engine indoors or in a poorly ventilated area. Engine
exhaust contains carbon monoxide, an odorless and deadly gas.
Do not operate machine while under the influence of alcohol or
drugs.
Muffler and engine become hot and can cause a burn. Do not
touch. Keep children away.
•
•
Exercise extreme caution when operating on or crossing gravel
surfaces. Stay alert for hidden hazards or traffic.
Exercise caution when changing direction and while operating on
slopes. Do not operate on steep slopes.
Plan your snow-throwing pattern to avoid discharge towards
windows, walls, cars etc. Thus, avoiding possible property damage
or personal injury caused by a ricochet.
Never direct discharge at children, bystanders and pets or allow
anyone in front of the machine.
Do not overload machine capacity by attempting to clear snow at
too fast of a rate.
Never operate this machine without good visibility or light. Always
be sure of your footing and keep a firm hold on the handles. Walk,
never run.
Disengage power to the auger/impeller when transporting or not in
use.
Never operate machine at high transport speeds on slippery
surfaces. Look down and behind and use care when backing up.
If the machine should start to vibrate abnormally, stop the engine,
disconnect the spark plug wire and ground it against the engine.
Inspect thoroughly for damage. Repair any damage before
starting and operating.
Disengage all control levers and stop engine before you leave the
operating position (behind the handles). Wait until the auger/
impeller comes to a complete stop before unclogging the chute
assembly, making any adjustments, or inspections.
Never put your hand in the discharge or collector openings. Do not
unclog chute assembly while engine is running. Shut off engine
and remain behind handles until all moving parts have stopped
before unclogging.
Use only attachments and accessories approved by the manufacturer (e.g. wheel weights, tire chains, cabs etc.). For information
concerning these items.
When starting engine, pull cord slowly until resistance is felt, then
pull rapidly. Rapid retraction of starter cord (kickback) will pull
hand and arm toward engine faster than you can let go. Broken
bones, fractures, bruises or sprains could result.
If situations occur which are not covered in this manual, use care
and good judgment.
For in-warranty safety, operation or maintenance questions, or to
order parts and schedule service.
CLEARING A CLOGGED DISCHARGE CHUTE
Hand contact with the rotating impeller inside the discharge chute
is the most common cause of injury associated with snow throwers.
Never use your hand to clean out the discharge chute.
To clear the chute:
1. SHUT THE ENGINE OFF!
2. Wait 10 seconds to be sure the impeller blades have stopped
rotating.
3. Always use a clean-out tool, not your hands.

and the United States Environment Protection Agency (U. S. EPA)
Emission Control System Warranty Statement
(Owner’s Defect Warranty Rights and Obligations)
EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM COVERAGE IS APPLICABLE TO CERTIFIED ENGINES PURCHASED IN CALIFORNIA IN 2005 AND THEREAFTER, WHICH ARE USED IN CALIFORNIA, AND TO CERTIFIED MODEL YEAR 2005 AND LATER ENGINES WHICH ARE PURCHASED AND
USED ELSEWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES.
California and elsewhere in the United States Emission Control Defects Warranty Coverage
The California Air Resources Board (CARB), U. S. EPA and MTD are pleased to explain the emissions control system warranty on your model year
2006 and later small off-road engine. In California, new small off-road engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet the States anti-smog
standards. Elsewhere in the United States, new non-road, spark-ignition engines certified for model 2005 and later, must meet similar standards set
forth by the U. S. EPA. MTD must warranty the emission control system on your engine for the period of time listed below, provided there has been
no abuse, neglect or improper maintenance of your small off-road engine.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel-injection system, the ignition system, and catalytic converter, fuel tanks,
fuel lines, fuel caps, valves, canisters, filters, vapor hoses, clamps, connectors, and other associated emission-related components.
Where a warrantable condition exists, MTD will repair your small off-road engine at no cost to your including diagnosis, parts and labor.
MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY COVERAGE:
This emissions control system is warranted for two years. If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired or
replaced by MTD.
OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your Owner’s Manual. MTD
recommends that you retain all your receipts covering maintenances on your small off-road engine, but MTD can not deny warranty solely for the
lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance to all scheduled maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should however be aware that MTD may deny your warranty coverage if your small off-road engine or part
has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to an Authorized MTD Service Dealer as soon as a problem exists. The warranted
repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact a MTD Service Representative .
DEFECTS WARRANTY REQUIREMENTS FOR 1995 AND LATER SMALL OFF-ROAD ENGINES:
This section applies to 1995 and later small off-road engines. The warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered to an
ultimate purchaser.
(a) General Emissions Warranty Coverage
MTD must warrant to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the engine is:
(1) Designed, built, and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by the Air Resources Board pursuant to its authority in
Chapters 1 and 2,Part 5, Division 26 of the Health and Safety Code; and
(2) Free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted part to be identical in all material respects to the part as
described in the engine manufacturer’s application for certification for a period of two years.
(b) The warranty on emissions-related parts will be interpreted as follows:
(1) Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instructions required by Subsection (c)
must be warranted for the warranty period defined in Subsection (a)(2). If any such part fails during the period of warranty coverage, it must be
repaired or replaced by MTD according to Subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under the warranty must be warranted for
the remaining warranty period.
(2) Any warranted part that is scheduled only for regular inspection in the written instructions required by Subsection (c) must be warranted for
the warranty period defined in Subsection (a)(2). A statement in such written instructions to the effect of “repair or replace as necessary” will
not reduce the period of warranty coverage. Any such part repaired or replaced under warranty must be warranted for the remaining warranty
period.
(3) Any warranted part that which is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the written instructions required by Subsection (c)
must be warranted for the period of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that part. If the part fails prior to the first scheduled
replacement, the part must be repaired or replaced by MTD according to Subsection (4) below. Any such part repaired or replaced under
warranty must be warranted for the remainder of the period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for the part.
(4) Repair or replacement of any warranted part under the warranty provisions of this article must be performed at no charge to the owner at a
warranty station.
(5) Notwithstanding the provisions of Subsection (4) above, warranty services or repairs must be provided at all MTD distribution centers that
are franchised to service the subject engines.

such diagnostic work is performed at a warranty station.
(7) The engine manufacturer is liable for damages to other engine components proximately caused by a failure under warranty of any warranted
part.
(8) Throughout the engine’s warranty period defined in Subsection (a)(2), MTD will maintain a supply of warranted parts sufficient to meet the
expected demand for such parts.
(9) Any replacement part may be used in the performance of any warranty maintenance or repairs and must be provided without charge to the
owner. Such use will not reduce the warranty obligations of MTD.
(10) Add-on or modified parts that are not exempted by the Air Resources Board may not be used. The use of any non-exempted add-on or
modified parts shall be grounds for disallowing a warranty claim made in accordance with this article. The engine manufacturer shall not be
liable under this article to warrant failures of warranted parts caused by the use of non-exempted add-on or modified part.
(c) MTD will include a copy of the following emission warranty parts list with each new engine, using those portions of the list applicable to the
engine.

Look For Relevant Emissions Durability Period and
Air Index Information On Your Engine Emissions Label
Engines that are certified to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Tier 2 Emission Standards must
display information regarding the Emissions Durability Period and the Air Index. Sears Brands Management
Corporation makes this information available to the consumer on our emission labels.
The Emissions Durability Period describes the number of hours of actual running time for which the engine is
certified to be emissions compliant, assuming proper maintenance in accordance with the Operating & Maintenance Instructions. The following categories are used:
Moderate:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 125 hours of actual engine running time.
Intermediate: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 250 hours of actual engine running time.
Extended:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 500 hours of actual engine running time.
For example, a typical walk-behind lawn mower is used 20 to 25 hours per year. Therefore, the Emissions
Durability Period of an engine with an intermediate rating would equate to 10 to 12 years.
The Air Index is a calculated number describing the relative level of emissions for a specific engine family. The
lower the Air Index, the cleaner the engine. This information is displayed in graphical form on the emissions label.
After July 1, 2000, Look For Emissions Compliance Period
On Engine Emissions Compliance Label
After July 1, 2000 certain Sears Brands Management Corporation engines will be certified to meet the United
States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) Phase 2 emission standards. For Phase 2 certified engines, the
Emissions Compliance Period referred to on the Emissions Compliance label indicates the number of operating
hours for which the engine has been shown to meet Federal emission requirements.
For engines less than 225 cc displacement, Category C = 125 hours, B = 250 hours and A = 500 hours.
For engines of 225 cc or more, Category C = 250 hours, B = 500 hours and A = 1000 hours.
This is a generic representation of the emission label typically found on a certified engine.
