Safety Rules & Information

Operating Safety

Congratulations on purchasing a superior-qualitypiece of lawn and garden equipment. Our products are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all industry standards for safety.

Power equipment is only as safe as the operator. If it is misused, or not properly maintained, it can be dangerous! Remember, you are responsible for your safety and that of those around you.

Use common sense, and think through what you are doing. If you are not sure that the task you are about to perform can be safely done with the equipment you have chosen, ask a professional: contact your local authorized dealer.

Read the Manual

The operator’s manual contains important safety information you need to be aware of BEFORE you operate your unit as well as DURING operation.

Safe operating techniques, an explanation of the product’s features and controls, and maintenance information is included to help you get the most out of your equipment investment.

Be sure to completely read the Safety Rules and Information found on the following pages. Also completely read the Operation section.

Children

Tragic accidents can occur with children. Do not allow them anywhere near the area of operation. Children are often attracted to the unit and snowthrowing activity. Never assume that children will remain where you last saw them. If there is a risk that children may enter the area where you are operating the unit, have another responsible adult watch them.

TP 600-3606-05-LW-SMA

DO NOT ALLOW CHILDREN TO OPERATE THIS UNIT! This encourages them to come near the unit in the future while it is running, and they could be seriously hurt.

They may then approach the unit when you are not expecting it, and you may run over them.

Safety Rules and Information

Moving Parts

This equipment has many moving parts that can injure you or someone else. However, if you are standing in the operator’s position, and follow all the rules in this book, the unit is safe to operate.

The auger and impeller have spinning parts that can amputate hands and feet. Do not allow anyone near the equipment while it is running! DO NOT clear the discharge chute by hand. If the chute becomes plugged, stop the engine, wait for all moving parts to stop, and clear the blockage with a clean-outtool or piece of wood.

To help you, the operator, use this equipment safely, it is equipped with an operator-presentsafety system. Do NOT attempt to alter or bypass the system. See your dealer immediately if the system does not pass all the safety interlock system tests found in this manual.

Thrown Objects

This unit has a spinning auger and impeller. They pick up and throw snow and ice. Thrown debris could seriously injure a bystander. ALWAYS direct the discharge chute away from bystanders and property that could be damaged by frying debris. Be sure to clean up the area to be cleared BEFORE you start.

Do not allow anyone in the area while the unit is running! If someone does enter the area, shut the unit off immediately until they leave.

Fuel and Maintenance

Gasoline is extremely flammable. Its vapors are also extremely flammable and can travel to distant ignition sources. Gasoline must only be used as a fuel, not as a solvent or cleaner. It should never be stored any place where its vapors can build up or travel to an ignition source like a pilot light. Fuel belongs in an approved, plastic, sealed gas can, or in the snowthrower fuel tank with the cap securely closed. Spilled fuel needs to be cleaned up immediately.

Proper maintenance is critical to the safety and performance of your unit. Be sure to perform the maintenance procedures listed in this manual, especially periodically testing the safety system.
