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.

persons, small children and pets at all
times including startup.

ward on discharge chute control lever and move lever
left or right until chute is in desired position. Be sure
lever springs back and locks into desired position.
The DISTANCE that snow is thrown is controlled by the
position of the chute deflector. Set the deflector low to
throw snow a short distance; set the deflector higher to
throw snow farther.
Press downward on chute deflector control lever and
move lever forward to raise the deflector and increase
