Sears Canada, Inc., Toronto, Ontario M5B 2B8 590607301 IMPORTANT Safe Operation Practices for Walk-Behind Snow Throwers This snow thrower is capable of amputating hands and feet and throwing objects. Failure to observe the following safety instructions could result in serious injury. WARNING: Snow throwers have exposed 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. Look for this symbol to point out important safety precautions. It means CAUTION!!! BECOME ALERT!!! YOUR SAFETY IS INVOLVED. WARNING: Always disconnect spark plug wire and place it where it cannot contact plug in order to prevent accidental starting when setting up, transporting, adjusting or making repairs. CAUTION: Muffler and other engine parts become extremely hot during operation and remain hot after engine has stopped. To avoid severe burns on contact, stay away from these areas. WARNING: This snow thrower is for use on sidewalks, driveways and other ground level surfaces. Caution should be exercised while using on sloping surfaces. Do not use snow thrower on surfaces above ground level such as roofs of residences, garages, porches or other such structures or buildings. WARNING: Engine exhaust, some of its constituents, and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Preparation 1. Thoroughly inspect the area where the equipment is to be used and remove all doormats, sleds, boards, wires, and other foreign objects. 2. Disengage all clutches and shift into neutral before starting the engine (motor). 3. Do not operate the equipment without wearing adequate winter garments. Avoid loose fitting clothing that can get caught in moving parts. Wear footwear that will improve footing on slippery surfaces. 4. Handle fuel with care; it is highly flammable (a) Use an approved fuel container. (b) Never add fuel to a running engine or hot engine. (c) Fill fuel tank outdoors with extreme care. Never fill fuel tank indoors. (d) Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck or trailer bed with a plastic liner. Always place containers on the ground, away from your vehicle, before filling. (e) When practical, remove gas-powered equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, then refuel such equipment on a trailer with a portable container, rather than from a gasoline dispenser nozzle. 8. (f) Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank or container opening at all times, until refueling is complete. Do not use a nozzle lock-open device. (g) Replace gasoline cap securely and wipe up spilled fuel. (h) If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately. Use extension cords and receptacles as specified by the manufacturer for all units with electric drive motors or electric starting motors. Adjust the collector housing height to clear gravel or crushed rock surface. Never attempt to make any adjustments while the engine (motor) is running (except when specifically recommended by manufacturer). Always wear safety glasses or eye shields during operation or while performing an adjustment or repair to protect eyes from foreign objects that may be thrown from the machine. Operation 1. Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts. Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times. 2. Exercise extreme caution when operating on or crossing gravel drives, walks, or roads. Stay alert for hidden hazards or traffic. 3. After striking a foreign object, stop the engine (motor), remove the wire from the spark plug, disconnect the cord on electric motors, thoroughly inspect the snow thrower for any damage, and repair the damage before restarting and operating the snow thrower. 4. If the unit should start to vibrate abnormally, stop the engine (motor) and check immediately for the cause. Vibration is generally a warning of trouble. 5. Stop the engine (motor) whenever you leave the operating position, before unclogging the collector/impeller housing or discharge chute, and when making any repairs, adjustments or inspections. 2 6. When cleaning, repairing or inspecting the snow thrower, stop the engine and make certain the collector/impeller and all moving parts have stopped. Disconnect the spark plug wire and keep the wire away from the plug to prevent someone from accidentally starting the engine. 7. Do not run the engine indoors, except when starting the engine and for transporting the snow thrower in or out of the building. Open the outside doors; exhaust fumes are dangerous. 8. Exercise extreme caution when operating on slopes. 9. Never operate the snow thrower without proper guards, and other safety protective devices in place and working. 10. Never direct the discharge toward people or areas where property damage can occur. Keep children and others away. 11. Do not overload the machine capacity by attempting to clear snow at too fast a rate. 12. Never operate the machine at high transport speeds on slippery surfaces. Look behind and use care when operating in reverse. 13. Disengage power to the collector/impeller when snow thrower is transported or not in use. 14. Use only attachments and accessories approved by the manufacturer of the snow thrower (such as wheel weights, counterweights, or cabs). 15. Never operate the snow thrower without good visibility or light. Always be sure of your footing, and keep a firm hold on the handles. Walk; never run. 16. Never touch a hot engine or muffler. Clearing a Clogged Discharge Chute Hand contact with the rotating impeller inside the discharge chute is the most common cause of injury associated with snow throwers. Never use your hand to clean out the discharge chute. To clear the chute: 1. SHUT THE ENGINE OFF! 2. Wait 10 seconds to be sure the impeller blades have stopped rotating. 3. Always use a clean-out tool, not your hands. Maintenance and Storage 1. Check shear bolts and other bolts at frequent intervals for proper tightness to be sure the equipment is in safe working condition. 2. Never store the machine with fuel in the fuel tank inside a building where ignition sources are present such as hot water heaters, space heaters, or clothes dryers. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. 3. Always refer to operator’s manual for important details if the snow thrower is to be stored for an extended period. 4. Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as necessary. 5. Run the machine a few minutes after throwing snow to prevent freeze-up of the collector/impeller.

Damage to the snow thrower can result. • Slower speeds are for heavier snow and faster speeds are for light snow and transporting the snow thrower. It is recommended that you use a slower speed until you are familiar with the operation of the snow thrower. NOTE: When both traction drive and auger control levers are engaged, the traction drive control lever will lock the auger control lever in the engaged position. This will allow you to release your right hand from the handle and adjust the discharge chute direction without interrupting the snow throwing process. When cleaning, repairing, or inspecting, make certain all controls are disengaged and the auger/impeller and all moving parts have stopped. Disconnect the spark plug wire and keep the wire away from the spark plug to prevent accidental starting. • • Release the auger control lever and shut off the engine. Remove the clean-out tool from its mounting clip. Grasp the tool firmly by the handle while pushing and twisting the tool into the discharge chute to dislodge the blockage. After the packed snow has been dislodged, return the clean-out tool to it's mounting clip by pushing it into the clip. • Make sure the discharge chute is pointed in a safe direction (no vehicles, buildings, people, or other objects are in the direction of discharge) before restarting engine. • Restart the engine, then squeeze the auger control lever to the handle to clear snow from the auger housing and the discharge chute. DRIVE SPEED CONTROL LEVER TRACTION DRIVE CONTROL LEVER AUGER CONTROL LEVER DISCHARGE CHUTE FIG. 14 POWER STEERING OPERATION (See Fig. 15) Steering triggers are used to assist in steering your snow thrower.

LH TURN TRIGGER FIG. 15 11 OPERATION BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE TO ADJUST SKID PLATES (See Fig. 16) NOTE: The wrench provided in your parts bag may be used to adjust the skid plates. Skid plates are located on each side of the auger housing and adjust the clearance between the scraper bar and the ground surface. Adjust skid plates evenly to proper height for current surface conditions. For removal of snow in normal conditions, such as a paved driveway or sidewalk, place skid plates in the highest position (lowest scraper clearance) to give a 1/8" clearance between the scraper bar and the ground. Use a middle position if the surface to be cleared is uneven. NOTE: It is not recommended to operate the snow thrower over gravel or rocky surfaces. Objects such as gravel, rocks or other debris, can easily be picked up and thrown by the impeller, which can cause serious personal injury, property damage or damage to the snow thrower. • If snow thrower must be operated over gravel surface, use extra caution and be sure skid plates are adjusted to lowest (highest scraper clearance) position. 1. Shut off engine and wait for all moving parts to stop. 2. Adjust skid plates by loosening the 1/2" hex nuts, then moving skid plate to desired position. Be sure both plates are adjusted evenly. Tighten securely. HIGH POSITION (LOW GROUND CLEARANCE) CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL (See Fig. 17) The engine on your snow thrower has been shipped from the factory already filled with oil. 1. Check engine oil with snow thrower on level ground. 2. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw tight, wait for a few seconds, remove and read oil level. If necessary, add oil until “FULL” mark on dipstick is reached. Do not overfill. • To change engine oil, see “TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL” in the Maintenance section of this manual. ADD GASOLINE (See Fig. 17) • Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck. Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline with a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to assure fuel freshness. WARNING: Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open flame. CAUTION: Alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer. Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage Instructions for additional information. Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may occur.

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 immediately 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 exposed to the direct sun and warming temperatures. Slightly overlap each successive path to ensure all snow will be removed. Throw snow downwind whenever possible. Adjust the skid plates to proper height for current snow conditions. See “TO ADJUST SKID PLATES” in this section of this manual. For extremely heavy snow, reduce the width of snow removal by overlapping 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 impair visibility. Throwing snow during a heavy, windy snowstorm can blind you and be hazardous to the safe operation of the snow thrower. 13 MAINTENANCE LUBRICATION CHART GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS ➀ ➁ ➂ The warranty on this snow thrower does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty, operator must maintain snow thrower as instructed in this manual. Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your snow thrower. All adjustments in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual should be checked at least once each season. • Once a year, you should replace the spark plug and check belts for wear. A new spark plug will help your engine run better and last longer. • Follow the maintenance schedule in this manual. NOTE: Use only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts to service this unit. Failure to do so can cause the unit to malfunction and pose a risk of injury to the operator. SAE 5w30 Motor Oil See “Engine” in Maintenance section White Lithium Grease ➂ Interlock Engine oil BEFORE EACH USE 1. Check engine oil level. 2. Check for loose fasteners. 3. Check controls to be sure they are functioning properly. Pivot points LUBRICATION Keep your snow thrower well lubricated (See “LUBRICATION CHART”). At the beginning of each season, or every 25 hours of use, apply a small amount of white lithium grease to the interlock bosses. 14 bosses MAINTENANCE SNOW THROWER Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Tighten oil fill cap / dipstick securely each time you check the oil level. TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL Determine temperature range anticipated before next oil change. All oil must meet API service classification SJ–SN. • Be sure snow thrower is on level surface. • Oil will drain more freely when warm. • Catch oil in a suitable container. NOTE: A wheel may be removed from snow thrower for easier access to the oil drain plug and placement of a suitable container. 1. Remove safety ignition key and disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug. Place wire where it cannot come in contact with spark plug. 2. Clean area around drain plug. 3. Remove drain plug and drain oil in a suitable container. 4. Install drain plug and tighten securely. 5. Wipe off any spilled oil from snow thrower and engine. 6. Install left wheel (if removed for draining oil). Be sure to install wheel pin and retainer pin into proper hole in wheel axle (See “TO REMOVE WHEELS” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). 7. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick. Be careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine. 8. Refill engine with oil through oil dipstick tube. Pour slowly. Do not overfill. For approximate capacity see “PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS” section of this manual. 9. Use gauge on oil fill cap/dipstick for checking level. Be sure dipstick cap is tightened securely for accurate reading. Keep oil at “FULL” line on dipstick. 10. Wipe off any spilled oil. Always observe the safety rules when performing any maintenance. TIRES • Maintain proper air pressure in both tires (14–17 PSI). • Keep tires free of gasoline and oil, which can harm rubber. NOTE: To seal tire punctures and prevent flat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant may be purchased from your local parts dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry rot and corrosion. BELTS Check belts for deterioration and wear after every 50 hours of operation and replace if necessary. The belts are not adjustable. Replace belts if they begin to slip from wear. (See “TO REMOVE BELT COVER” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). The belts on your snow thrower are of special construction and should be replaced by original equipment manufacturer (OEM) belts available from your nearest dealer. Using other than OEM belts can cause personal injury or damage to the snow thrower. AUGER GEAR CASE • The gear case was filled with lubricant to the proper level at the factory. The only time the lubricant needs attention is if service has been performed on the gear case. • If lubricant is required, use only Ronex ED #1 grease. TRACTION DRIVE SYSTEM DO NOT lubricate the drive components inside the snow thrower. The sprockets, hex shafts, drive disc and friction wheel require no lubrication. The bearings and bushings are lifetime lubricated and require no maintenance. CAUTION: Any lubricating of the above components can cause contamination of the friction wheel and damage to the drive system of your snow thrower. MUFFLER Inspect and replace corroded muffler as it could create a fire hazard and/or damage. SPARK PLUG Replace spark plug at the beginning of each season or after every 100 hours of operation, whichever occurs first. Spark plug type and gap setting are shown in the “PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS” section of this manual. ENGINE See engine manual. LUBRICATION Use only high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SJ–SN. Select the oil's SAE viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature. CLEANING IMPORTANT: For best performance, keep snow thrower housing free of any dirt or trash. Clean the outside of your snow thrower after each use. WARNING: Remove safety ignition key and disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug. Place wire where it cannot come in contact with spark plug. NOTE: Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil. Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the snow thrower is not used for 25 hours in one year. • • 15 Keep finished surfaces/wheels free of gasoline, oil, etc. We do not recommend using a garden hose to clean your snow thrower unless the electrical system, muffler and carburetor are covered to keep water out. Water in engine can result in shortened engine life. SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS To replace the shear bolts: 1. Disengage all controls and move throttle control to STOP position.

NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always follow the mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer. WARNING: Never store the snow thrower with gasoline in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot light as on a furnace, water heater, clothes dryer or gas appliance. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure. SNOW THROWER ENGINE OIL Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean engine oil. (See “ENGINE” in the Maintenance section of this manual). When snow thrower is to be stored for a period of time, clean it thoroughly, remove all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. Store in a clean, dry area. 1. Clean entire snow thrower (See “CLEANING” in the Maintenance section of this manual). 2. Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See “TO REPLACE BELTS” in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual). 3. Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual. 4. Be sure that all nuts, bolts, screws, and pins are securely fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage and wear. Replace if necessary. 5. Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting. CYLINDER 1. Remove spark plug. 2. Pour one ounce (29 ml) of oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. 3. Pull recoil starter handle slowly a few times to distribute oil. 4. Replace with new spark plug. OTHER • • • Remove safety ignition key; store it in a safe place. Do not store gasoline from one season to another. Replace your gasoline can if your can starts to rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will cause problems. • If possible, store your snow thrower indoors and cover it to protect it from dust and dirt. • Cover your snow thrower with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot breathe, which allows condensation to form and will cause your snow thrower to rust. IMPORTANT: Never cover snow thrower while engine/ exhaust area is still warm. ENGINE See engine manual. FUEL SYSTEM IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent gum deposits from forming in essential fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also, alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. 19 TROUBLESHOOTING See appropriate section in manual unless directed to a Sears service center/department.

Torque values are derived at 3060 RPM; horsepower values are derived at 3600 RPM. Actual gross engine power will be lower and is affected by, among other things, ambient operating conditions and engine-to-engine variability. Given both the wide array of products on which engines are placed and the variety of environmental issues applicable to operating the equipment, the gas engine will not develop the rated gross power when used in a given piece of power equipment (actual “on-site” or net power). This difference is due to a variety of factors including, but not limited to, accessories (air cleaner, exhaust, charging, cooling, carburetor, fuel pump, etc.), application limitations, ambient operating conditions (temperature, humidity, altitude), and engine-to-engine variability. Due to manufacturing and capacity limitations, Briggs & Stratton may substitute an engine of higher rated power for this Series engine. 47 05.30.17 BD Printed in the U.S.A.
