TO TRANSPORT (See Figs. 11 & 12)
When transporting your snowthrower, be sure to disen-
gage the transmission by placing freewheel control into
FREE WHEEL po si tion (See Fig. 11) and height adjustment
locator into TRANSPORT MODE position (See Fig. 12).
Pull freewheel control out to FREEWHEEL position.
Set height adjustment into TRANSPORT MODE.
To reengage transmission, push control back in.
SET HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT (See Figs. 12 & 13)
Your snow thrower is equipped with a foot controlled height
adjustment mechanism (See Fig. 13).
There are four height positions for operation (See Fig. 12)
1. PACKED SNOW
2. NORMAL OPERATION
To operate the height adjust mechanism, using your
foot, push down on the pedal, tilt the unit to align
the pins with the selected height position and slowly
release foot pressure until the pins are seated in the
desired height setting.
IMPORTANT: Your model snow thrower is equipped
with an oil expansion tank attached to the hydrostat-
ic transmission (see fig. 13). As you run your snow
thrower, the oil level will rise in this tank as the oil
heats up and recess as the oil cools. This is normal
operation. You do not need to add oil to this tank as
part of regular maintenance.
The operation of any snow thrower can result
in foreign objects thrown into the eyes, which
can result in severe eye damage. Always wear
safety glasses or eye shields while operating
your snow thrower or performing any ad just-
ments or repairs. We recommend standard safe ty glasses
or a wide vision safety mask worn over spectacles.
