starter handle will not harm the engine or starter.
IF RECOIL STARTER HAS FROZEN

proceed as follows:
1. Grasp the recoil starter handle and slowly pull as much
rope out of the starter as possible.
2. Release the recoil starter handle and let it snap back
against the starter.
If the engine still fails to start, repeat the above steps or
use the electric starter.

SNOW THROWING TIPS

Always operate the snow thrower with the engine at
full throttle. Full throttle offers the best performance.
Go slower in deep, freezing or heavy wet snow. Use the
drive speed control, NOT the throttle, to adjust speed.
It is easier and more effi cient to remove snow im me -
di ate ly after it falls.
The best time to remove snow is the early morning. At
this time the snow is usually dry and has not been ex-
posed to the direct sun and warming tem per a tures.
Slightly overlap each successive path to ensure all
snow will be removed.
Throw snow downwind whenever possible.
Ad just the skid plates to proper height for current snow
con di tions. See "TO ADJUST SKID PLATES" in this
section of this manual.
For extremely heavy snow, re duce the width of snow
removal by over lap ping previous path and moving
slowly.
Keep engine clean and clear of snow during use. This
will help air fl ow and extend engine life.
After snow-throwing is completed, allow engine to run for
a few minutes to melt snow and ice off the engine.
Clean the entire snow thrower thoroughly after each
use and wipe dry so it is ready for next use.

WARNING:
Do not operate snow
thrower if weather conditions im pair vis-
ibility. Throwing snow dur ing a heavy,
windy snowstorm can blind you and be
hazardous to the safe operation of the
snow thrower.
