• Eyes: Flush with water for at least 15
minutes and get medical attention
immediately!
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.
When practical, 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.
If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing
immediately.
Avoid Electric Shock. Objects contacting both
battery terminals at the same time may result
in injury and unit damage. DO NOT reverse
battery connections.
Explosive Gases from battery can cause death
or serious injury. Poisonous battery fluid
contains sulfuric acid and its contact with skin,
eyes or clothing can cause severe chemical
burns.
• Internal Contact: Drink large quantities of
water. Follow with Milk of Magnesia,
beaten egg or vegetable oil. Get medical
attention immediately!
• In case of internal contact, DO NOT
induce vomiting!
Before tipping unit up onto housing, remove
fuel so no spills will occur and remove battery.
Ensure unit is secure and will not tip over
during maintenance.
ALWAYS keep protective structures, guards,
and panels in good repair, in place and
securely fastened. NEVER modify or remove
safety devices.
DO NOT change engine governor settings or
over-speed engine.
Fumes from engine exhaust can cause injury
or death. DO NOT run engine in an enclosed
area. Always provide good ventilation.
ALWAYS maintain unit in safe operating
condition. Damaged or worn out muffler can
cause fire or explosion.
No flames, No sparks, No smoking near
battery.
Keep all hardware properly tightened. Check
shear bolts frequently.
ALWAYS wear safety glasses and protective
gear near battery.
Maintain or replace safety and instruction
labels, as necessary.
DO NOT TIP battery beyond a 45° angle in
any direction.
NEVER store unit with fuel in fuel tank, inside
a building where any ignition sources are
present.
ALWAYS keep batteries out of reach of
children.
Battery posts, terminals and related
accessories contain lead and lead
compounds, chemicals known to the State of
California to cause cancer and reproductive
harm. Wash hands after handling.
Follow First Aid directions for contact with
battery fluid.
• External Contact: Flush with water.
Shut off fuel and allow engine to cool
completely before storing in closed area or
covering unit.
For extended storage, clean unit thoroughly.
See Engine Manual for proper storage.
Use only attachments or accessories designed
for your unit.
Check components frequently. If worn or
damaged, replace with manufacturer’s
recommended parts.

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).
