OPERATION

TO USE WEIGHT TRANSFER SYSTEM

In hard packed or heavy snow conditions. conventional snow throwers tend to ride up and leave uneven mounds of snow behind For these conditions. your new tracked snow thrower has a unique weight transfer system (See Fig 12) designed to minimize ride-up

The weight transfer system engaged shifts more weight to the auger housing This weight transfer keeps the snow thrower in contact with the ground and reduces ride-up on ice and snow

In lighter snow conditions or when transporting. you should release the weight transfer system for easier steering

To use the weight transfer system. lift up on upper handle until bracket bolts snap into place in upper slots of weight transfer pedal

To release. hold upper handle firmly and push down on the weight transfer pedal with the ball of your foot

NOTE: The weight transfer system will not work if the auger housing height adjust skids are adjusted to the highest position

TRACK DRIVE/FREE-WHEEL FEATURE

The track system on your snow thrower has a drive/free wheel feature (See Fig 12A) which allows the unit to be transpoded easily without the engine being started

To use free-wheeling. lift up the loop of the klick pin inthe fronttrack wheel and pullthe pin out Installthe pin through the hole in the shaft outside of the track wheel Repeat on the opposite side of the unit

To use normal drive. lift the loop of the klick pin from the outside hole in the shaft Rotate the front track wheel until the hole in the track wheel hub and the outside hole in the shaft are in-line Place pin through the hole inthetrack hub Repeat on the opposite side of the unit

NOTE: If unit does not move when engine is started. check the pin locations Pins on both sides of unit should be in the normal drive position for unit to move

OPERATIO

SNOW THROWING TiPS

For maximum snow thrower efficiency in removing snow. adjust ground speed. NEVER the throttle Go slower in deep. freezing or wet snow If the track slips. reduce forward speed The engine is designed to deliver maximum performance at full throttle and should be run at this power setting at all times

Most efficient snow throwing is accomplished when the snow is removed immediately after it falls

For complete snow removal. slightly overlap each path previously taken Use more overlap in deep snow to prevent overloading

The snow should be discharged down wind when ever possible

For normal usage. set the skids so that the scraper bar is 1/8" above the skids For extremely hard packed snow surfaces. adjust the skids upward so that the scraper bar touches the ground

On gravel or crushed rock surfaces. set the skids at 1-1/4" below the scraper bar (see To Adjust Skid Height paragraph on page 20) Stones and gravel must not be picked up and thrown by the machine

If the front of the snow thrower has a tendency to raise. reduce the ground speed and engage the weight transfer system

After the snow throwing job has been completed. allow the engine to idle for a few minutes. which will melt snow and accumulated ice off the engine

Clean the snow thrower thoroughly after each use

Remove ice and snow accumulation and all debris from the entire snow thrower. and flush with water (if possible) to remove all salt or other chemicals Wipe snow thrower dry
