IMPORTANT: DO NOT overload unit capacity by
attempting to clear snow at too fast a rate.
Tips for Operation
Snow is best removed as soon as possible after snow
fall.
To clear an area, run unit in an overlapping series of
paths. For large areas; start in the middle and throw
snow to each side, so snow is not cleared more than
once.
ALWAYS direct snow away from area to be cleared and
with direction of the wind.
TRAVELING
To travel from one work area to another:
1. Set Throttle to "Slow" or "Part-Throttle" position.
2. Press down on handlebars enough to raise front
of unit slightly off surface.
3. Engage wheel drive clutch without engaging
attachment drive clutch.
TRANSPORT
ALWAYS shut off engine, remove key and drain fuel
when transporting unit on a truck or trailer.
Use extra care when loading or unloading unit onto
trailer or truck.
Secure unit chassis to transport vehicle. NEVER
secure from rods or linkages that could be damaged.
DO NOT transport machine while engine is running.
Normal Shut Off
1. Release Traction Drive Clutch Lever and allow
unit to come to a complete stop.
2. Run Impeller a few minutes after use to prevent
freeze-up of Impeller.
3. Release Attachment Clutch Lever and wait for all
moving parts to come to a complete stop.
4. Move Throttle to the “Slow” Position.
5. Move key into “Stop” position.
6. Remove key.
THROWING SNOW

MAINTENANCE
Ariens Dealers will provide any service or adjustments
which may be required to keep your unit operating at
peak efficiency. Should engine service be required,
contact an Ariens dealer or an authorized engine
manufacturer's service center.
WARNING: AVOID INJURY. Read and
understand Maintenance and Service and
Battery Safety Rules in Safety section before
attempting any maintenance.
Change oil after first 5 hours of operation, thereafter
change oil every 25 hours (more often if required).
Refer to Engine Manual for detailed instructions.
Run engine just prior to changing oil. Warm oil will flow
more freely and carry away more contamination.
WARNING: Before tipping unit up onto
housing, remove fuel so no spills will occur
and remove battery (if equipped). Ensure unit
is secure and will not tip over during
maintenance.
CHECK AUGER GEARCASE
Place unit in service position when required. Place unit
on a flat level surface. Tip unit forward onto front of
Impeller housing for service. Assure unit is secure and
will not tip over. Strap and clamp onto bench if needed.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
The chart below shows the recommended
maintenance schedule that should be performed on a
regular basis. More frequent service may be required
due to working conditions (heavy loads, high ambient
temperatures, dusty conditions, or airborne debris).
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Check Fasteners
Daily
The engine crankcase oil should be checked every 5
hours of operation. Oil level MUST be maintained in
safe operating range on dipstick at all times or engine
damage will result (See Engine Manual).
Park unit on a level surface. Refer to Engine Manual for
detailed instructions.
CHANGE ENGINE OIL
SERVICE POSITION
Service Performed
CHECK ENGINE OIL
IMPORTANT: Proper oil level must be maintained.
Gear cases are filled to the correct level at the factory.
Unless there is evidence of leakage, no additional
lubricant should be required. Check for evidence of
leakage every 25 hours of operation.
To ensure adequate lubricant level:
1. Remove filler plug (Figure 8). Lubricant must be
at least up to bottom of lubricant filler hole with
unit resting on a level-surface.
2. Add lubricant if required. Allow oil to drain to level
of plug and replace plug.
IMPORTANT: Use only Ariens special gear lubricant
L-2 (Part Number 00008000).

WARNING: AVOID INJURY. Read and
understand Battery Safety Rules in Safety
section before attempting any maintenance.
IMPORTANT: Battery is maintenance free. Do not
tamper with or attempt to open battery. See Service
and Adjustments for charging procedures.
Terminals
Keep battery and its terminals clean.
IMPORTANT: Remove battery from unit before
cleaning.
Remove corrosion from battery terminals and cable
connections with a wire brush, then wash with a weak
baking soda solution.
After cleaning, apply a thin coat of grease or petroleum
jelly to terminals and cable ends to retard corrosion.

SCRAPER BLADE
IMPORTANT: Damage to auger/impeller housing will
result if blade wears down too far.
Scraper blade is adjustable to compensate for wear.
To adjust scraper blade:
1. Tip unit back onto handlebar, support housing
and loosen nuts retaining blade.
To properly adjust attachment clutch:
1. Remove belt cover. When clutch is disengaged
there should be a slight amount of slack in the
auger cable to allow for brake wear.
2. Clutch cable spring should extend approximately
3/8" (9,5 mm) when clutch is engaged but allow
clutch arm to return to it's maximum down
position when clutch is disengaged. To increase
spring extension, loosen adjustment hardware
(Figure 14) and move the idler toward the belt .
Approximately 1/8" (3,2 mm) movement of the
idler will increase spring extension by 1/8" (3,2
mm).
3. To check impeller brake, place unit in service
position. Remove bottom cover by removing four
cap screws.

4. Measure distance between impeller brake shoe
pad and belt with attachment clutch engaged

SHEAR BOLTS
IMPORTANT: Use only Ariens Shear Bolts for
replacement. Use of any other type of shear bolt may
result in severe damage to unit.
Occasionally a foreign object may enter the
auger/impeller housing and jam the auger, breaking
Shear Bolts (Figure 16) which secure the auger to the
shaft. This allows auger to turn freely on the shaft
preventing damage to gear drive.
For Replacement:
1. Slide auger outward against roll pin and align
hole in shaft with hole in auger (holes in shaft for
roll pins and Shear Bolts line up).
2. Drive shear bolt through hole (if shear bolt was
broken this will drive remaining part from shaft).

defect in workmanship, and repair or replacement of any
defective part. Ariens Company shall not be liable for incidental,
special, or consequential damages (including lost profits).
Some states do not allow the exclusion of incidental or

or implied, other than what is expressly made
in this warranty. If the law of your state provides

an implied warranty of fitness for particular
purpose, or any other implied warranty, applies
to Ariens Company, then any such implied
warranty is limited to the duration of this
warranty. Some states do not allow limitations
on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the
above limitation may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights
which vary from state to state.
