Safety Rules

WARNING

This unit is a “two-stage”snowthrower.

The first stage is the auger, which feeds the snow back into the impeller housing. The second stage is the impeller, which throws the snow out the discharge chute. If bodily contact is made with the auger or impeller when they are rotating, severe personal injury will occur.

To avoid injury, keep others and yourself away from the auger and the discharge chute whenever the engine is running. Read and follow all of the safety rules and warnings in this manual.

WARNING

To avoid serious injury, do not put your hands into the auger housing or discharge chute. If auger stalls or chute becomes plugged, use the following procedure to remove objects or clear the chute:

1.Release both the Drive and Auger Control levers.

2.Shut off the engine.

3.Remove the Engine Key.

4.Wait for moving parts to stop.

5.Disconnect spark plug wire.

6.Use a narrow board to remove foreign objects and clear the chute or auger. Never put your hands into the auger or discharge chute.

GENERAL

Read the Operator’s Manual carefully. Be thoroughly familiar with all controls and proper equipment use.

Never allow children to operate the machine. Do not allow adults to operate it without proper instruction.

Keep the area of operation clear of all persons, particularly small children and pets.

Never discharge material toward any person or pet.

Make sure:

a.snowthrower is in good operating condition;

b.all safety devices and shields are in place and working;

c.all adjustments are correct.

PREPARATION

Never attempt to make any adjustment while engine is running.

Thoroughly inspect the area where the snowthrower is to be used and remove all objects such as door mats, sleds, boards, wires and sticks.

Disengage all clutches (release Drive and Auger Control levers) before starting engine.

Do not operate snowthrower without wearing proper winter clothing. Wear footwear which improves footing on slippery surfaces.

Adjust Skid Shoe height to clear gravel or crushed rock surface.

Handle gasoline with care - it is highly flammable.

a.Use approved gasoline container.

b.Never remove the fuel tank cap or add gasoline to a running or hot engine.

c.Never fill the fuel tank indoors.

d.Wipe up spilled gasoline.

Do not run engine indoors. Exhaust fumes are deadly.

Safety Rules

OPERATION

MAINTENANCE & STORAGE

Keep hands and feet away from rotating parts. Keep clear of discharge opening at all times.

Always clear snow up and down the face of slopes, never across the face. Use extreme caution when changing direction on slopes. Do not attempt to clear slopes over 17.7% (10o).

Use extreme caution when operating on or crossing gravel drives, walks or roads. Stay alert for hidden hazards and traffic.

Be especially careful not to touch snowthrower parts which might be hot from operation. Allow such parts to cool before attempting to maintain, adjust or service.

If unit starts to vibrate abnormally, disengage drives and stop the engine. Check immediately for the cause. Vibration is generally a warning of trouble.

Before leaving operator’s position for any reason:

-shut off engine,

-remove the Engine Key and

-wait for all moving parts to stop.

Before cleaning, repairing or inspecting the unit, make certain all moving parts have stopped. Remove the key and then disconnect the spark plug wire to prevent accidental starting.

Always use a grounded, 3-wireplug receptacle for electric starting.

Adjust snow discharge angle for safe flow when operating near glass enclosures, automobiles, window wells, drop-offs,etc.

Do not overload machine capacity by clearing snow at too fast a ground speed.

Never operate machine at high transport speeds on slippery surfaces. Use care when backing up.

Disengage Auger Control when transporting or not in use.

Never operate the snowthrower without good visibility or light. Always be sure of your footing.

Do not change the engine governor settings or overspeed the engine.

Never direct the discharge chute at bystanders; nor allow anyone in front of the unit while it is operational.

Never operate this machine without all of the proper guards or other safety protective devices in place.

Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight to ensure that the equipment is in safe operating condition.

Never store equipment with gasoline in the tank in a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.

Always refer to the Operator’s Manual for important details if snowthrower is to be stored for an extended period.

Run auger drive a few seconds after completion of throwing snow to help clear out snow and prevent icing and freeze-upon unit.

E.Throttle Lever - The throttle lever (E, Figure 3) controls the engine speed. For best overall performance, the throttle lever should be set to theFAST position. Use theSLOW position only for warming the engine, or to help prevent snow/icefreeze-upwhen shutting the unit down for the day.

F.Engine Key - The Engine Key (F, Figure 3) prevents the engine from being started by unauthorized individuals. The key must be fully inserted into the key slot for the unit to start. The key is also used to stop the engine by pulling the key out of the key slot.

G.Choke Knob - The Choke Knob (G, Figure 3) adjusts the air/fuel mixture, and is used to help start a cold engine by providing a richer mixture. Once the engine is warm and running smoothly, the Choke Knob should be set to the off position to provide a normal air/fuel mix.
