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 adjustments or repairs. We recommend standard safety
glasses or a wide vision safety mask worn over spectacles.
HOW TO USE YOUR SNOW THROWER
Know how to operate all controls before adding fuel or
attempting to start the engine.

TO CONTROL SNOW DISCHARGE
WARNING: Snow throwers have ex-
posed rotating parts, which can cause
severe injury from contact, or from
material thrown from the discharge
chute. Keep the area of operation clear
of all persons, small children and pets
at all times including startup.
WARNING: If the discharge chute or
auger become clogged, shut-off engine
and wait for all moving parts to stop.
Use a stick, NOT YOUR HANDS, to un-
clog the chute and/or auger.
The DIRECTION in which snow is to be thrown is controlled
by the discharge chute control lever.
To change the discharge chute position, press down-
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.
DISCHARGE CHUTE
CONTROL LEVER
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.
To change the deflector position, loosen knob, move
deflector to desired position and tighten knob securely.
