Electric Starter
WARNING: The electric starter is equipped with
a three-wire power cord and plug, and is designed
to operate on 120 volt AC household current. It
must be properly grounded at all times to avoid the
possibility of electric shock which may be injurious
to the operator. Follow all instructions carefully.
Determine that your house wiring is a three-wire
grounded system. Ask a licensed electrician if you
are not certain. If your house wiring system is not a
three-wire grounded system, do not use this electric
starter under any conditions. If your system is
grounded and a three-hole receptacle is not
available at the point your starter will normally be
used, one should be installed by a licensed
electrician.
When connecting the power cord, always connect
cord to starter on engine first, then plug the other
end into a three-hole grounded receptacle.
When disconnecting the power cord, always unplug

OPERATING TIPS
NOTE: Allow the engine to warm up for a few
minutes as the engine will not develop full power
until it reaches operating temperature.
WARNING: Temperature of muffler
and surrounding areas may exceed
150oF. Avoid these areas.
1. For most efficient snow removal, remove snow
immediately after it falls.
2. Discharge snow downwind whenever possible.
Slightly overlap each previous swath.
3. Set the skid shoes 1/4" below the scraper bar
for normal usage. The skid shoes may be
adjusted upward for hard-packed snow. Adjust
downward when using on gravel or crushed
rock.
4. Be certain to follow the precautions listed under
‘‘To Stop Engine’’ on page 12 to prevent
possible freeze-up.
5. Clean the snow thrower thoroughly after each
use.

SECTION 11: OFF-SEASON STORAGE
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such as STA-BIL) is an
acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to
gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always
follow mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run
engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to
allow it to reach carburetor. Do not drain carburetor
if using fuel stabilizer.
WARNING: Never store engine with
fuel in tank indoors or in poorly
ventilated areas, where fuel fumes may
reach an open flame, spark or pilot
light as on a furnace, water heater,
clothes dryer or other gas appliance.
If unit is to be stored over 30 days, prepare for
storage as follows:
1. Remove all gasoline from carburetor and fuel
tank to prevent gum deposits from forming on
these parts and causing possible malfunction of
engine.
2. Remove spark plug and pour one (1) ounce of
engine oil through spark plug hole into cylinder.
Crank engine several times to distribute oil.
Replace spark plug.
3. Remove all dirt from exterior of engine and
equipment.
4. Follow lubrication recommendations on page 14.
5. Store in a clean, dry area.
a. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and
engine stops due to lack of fuel.
b. Drain carburetor by pressing upward on bowl
drain, located below the carburetor cover.
NOTE: When storing any type of power equipment
in an unventilated or metal storage shed, care
should be taken to rust proof the equipment. Using
a light oil or silicone, coat the equipment, especially
any chains, springs, bearings and cables.
WARNING: Drain fuel into approved container
outdoors, away from open flame. Be certain
engine is cool. Do not smoke. Fuel left in engine
during warm weather deteriorates and will cause
serious starting problems.

For TWO YEARS from the date of retail purchase
within the United States of America, its possessions
and territories, MTD PRODUCTS INC will, at its
option, repair or replace, for the original purchaser,
free of charge, any part or parts found to be
defective in material or workmanship. This warranty
covers units which have been operated and
maintained in accordance with the operating
instructions furnished with the unit, and which have
not been subject to misuse, abuse, commercial use,
neglect, accident, improper maintenance or
alteration.
Units exported out of the United States: MTD
PRODUCTS INC does not extend any warranty
for products sold or exported outside of the United
States of America, its possessions and territories,
except those sold through MTD PRODUCTS INC’s
authorized channels of export distribution.
Other Warranties:
1. The engine or component parts thereof carry
separate warranties from their manufacturers.
Please refer to the applicable manufacturer’s
warranty on these items.
2. *Batteries are covered by a 90-day replacement
warranty.
3. Log splitter pumps, valves and cylinders or
component parts thereof are covered by a one
year warranty.
4. All other warranties, express or implied,
including any implied warranty of merchantability
or fitness for a particular purpose, are hereby
expressly disclaimed in their entirety.
5. The provisions as set forth in this warranty
provide the sole and exclusive remedy of MTD
PRODUCTS INC’s obligations arising from the
sales of its products. MTD PRODUCTS INC will
not be liable for incidental or consequential loss
or damage.
Normal wear parts or components thereof are
subject to separate terms as noted below in the “No
Fault Ninety Day Consumer Warranty” clause.
All normal wear part failures will be covered on this
product for a period of 90 days regardless of cause.
After 90 days, but within the two year period, normal

limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and
you may also have other rights which vary from
state to state. Certain disclaimers are not allowed in
some states and therefore they may not apply to
you under all circumstances.
NOTE: This warranty does not cover routine
maintenance items such as lubricants, filters, blade
sharpening and tune-ups, or adjustments such as
brake adjustments, clutch adjustments or deck
adjustments. Nor does this warranty cover normal
