TO START ENGINE
Be sure fuel shut-off valve is in the "OPEN" position.
Your snow thrower engine is equipped with both a 120 Volt
A.C. electric starter and a recoil starter. The electric starter
is equipped with a three-wire power cord and plug and is
designed to operate on 120 Volt A.C. household current.
Be sure your house is a 120 Volt A.C. three-wire
ground ed system. If you are uncertain, consult a
li censed electrician.
WARNING: Do not use the electric
start er if your house is not a 120 Volt
A.C. three-wire grounded system. Se ri-
ous per son al injury or damage to your
snow thrower could result.
COLD START - ELECTRIC STARTER
1. Insert safety ignition key (tied to recoil start cord) into
ignition slot until it clicks. DO NOT turn the key. Keep
the extra safety ignition key in a safe place.
2. Place throttle control in "FAST" position.
3. Rotate choke control to "FULL " position.
4. Connect the power cord to the engine.
5. Plug the other end of the power cord into a three-hole
grounded 120 Volt A.C. receptacle.
6. Push the primer three (3) times.
7. Push starter button until engine starts.
IMPORTANT: Do not crank engine more than five con tin u-
ous seconds between each time you try to start. Wait 5 to
10 seconds between each attempt.
8. When the engine starts, release the starter button and
slowly move the choke control to the "OFF" position.
9. Disconnect the power cord from the receptacle first,
then from the engine.
Allow the engine to warm up for a few minutes. Engine will
not develop full power until it has reached normal operat-
ing temperature.
WARM START - ELECTRIC STARTER

4. Push the primer four (4) times if the temperature is
below 15°F, or two (2) times if temperature is between
15° and 50°F. If temperature is above 50°F, priming is
not nec es sary.

position. DO NOT push the primer.
BEFORE STOPPING
Run the engine for a few minutes to help dry off any mois-
ture on the engine.

IF RECOIL STARTER HAS FROZEN

If the recoil starter has frozen and will not turn the engine,
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 efficient 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 flow 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.
