Quick Start Guide – Snow Thrower – Tips

  • Use fresh gasoline and never allow gasoline to sit in the gas tank for an extended period of time
  • Use gas stabilizer to keep the gasoline fresh for longer periods and to also avoid gumming up the fuel system
  • Change the oil at least once every season and more often if your machine is on the go every day, perhaps as often as once a month or every 50 hours of operation
  • Clean and re-gap the spark plug annually and/or change it once every two years
  • Make sure that there is a solid connection from the spark plug wire to the spark plug
  • Start the engine every month to keep the fuel moving and to avoid gumming up from stagnant fuel sitting in fuel lines
  • Read and follow all safety guidelines before doing any maintenance on these machines.

  • Read all of the safety instructions on the snow thrower and in the owner’s manual.
  • Use hearing protection and safety glasses whenever you are working or operating one of these machines
  • Wear excellent grip footwear so you don’t slip.
  • Heavy snow may require that you clear the snow more often or that you only take half a swath on each pass to avoid overloading the snow thrower
  • Clear your driveway of rocks, and sticks, every year before each snowfall.
  • Clean out the area around the blades and impeller removing all snow. Make sure that the engine is turned off before you attempt this.
