Snow Blowers

MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG

The MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG has a 28 inch clearing width and a 21 inch intake height for those high drifts that winter brings. It is powered by a 277cc MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LGengine winterized engine and comes with 12 inch augers and a 12 inch impeller. This snow thrower is great for most urban situations and comes with lots of features that many people will appreciate.

The heated handles are one feature that will please everyone. If you have been outside blowing snow in freezing temperatures, your fingers often get very cold when you have to hold on to the cold steel handles. With heated handles, you will never need to deal with this issue again. Having cold hands makes it very unpleasant to be outside blowing snow.

This snow thrower comes with 6 forward and 2 reverse speeds, which is pretty standard in the industry. It has an electric starter, however, it does not have clickable steering that some other models have. Clickable steering allows you to change direction by clicking a trigger switch, which can be useful if you do not like to manhandle a snowblower.

Description of the MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG

This snow thrower has lots of features as listed above. We like the in-dash yard light. Operators will find this useful if you are blowing snow in poor light conditions in the evening or early morning. Also, the tool-less drift cutters are an advantage especially if you get heavy snow that drifts across your driveway or walkway.

The engine comes pre-filled with oil, however, we recommend that you always check the oil level before starting to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine. It can be ready to go in minutes, just unfold the handles, check the oil level, add fuel and you should be ready to go. Read the instruction book first before operating for the first time.


Most customers will have to arrange for the delivery of their new snow blowers. They are far too big to take home in your car, so you will need a trailer, rent a van or arrange for delivery by the store that you are purchasing the snow blower from. There will be a charge for this service, but it will be the easiest way to arrange for your new snow blower to be delivered to your home. Some stores will rent their vans/trucks to you for a very low price for 2 hours for you to take your purchases home. Lowes and Home Depot do this as well as others.


Most snow blowers can be purchased with tire chains to provide extra traction in icy situations. In addition, snow shields are also a good idea if you want to protect yourself from windy conditions and snow being blown back at you from the wind.

Safety & Operation

This MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG is a powerful machine and should be treated with safety in mind. Carefully read all of the safety guidelines in the manual prior to operating the machine for the first time and follow these guidelines to ensure that both you and the machine do not have an accident.

Prior to starting the MTD Gold Snow Thrower M54LG the first time each day, perform a quick walk-around check of the machine to ensure there are no loose parts and no leaking fluids. Check the engine oil to ensure that it is at the correct level as specified by the manual. Top up if necessary. Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cold and prior to using the machine. If you do spill fuel, wait until it has fully evaporated prior to starting the engine. Never spill fuel on a hot engine to avoid fires and always fill the fuel tank outdoors to avoid any possibility of vapors going into your house.

Finally never point the chute in the direction of people, buildings, or cars to avoid any possible damage and accidents. Sometimes chunks of ice can be thrown at high speed from the chute and if they hit something, it can cause a lot of damage.


Like all snow blowers or snow throwers, maintenance is important for your machine to operate at a peak level for many years. Change the engine oil regularly, check the belts for tightness, change the spark plug as required, and grease any spots outlined in the manual. If you need to leave the snow blower outside all year round, cover the machine with a proper cover to keep it looking new and avoid deterioration of the tires and metal components.
