CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL (See Fig. 20)
The engine on your snow thrower has been shipped from
the factory already filled with oil.
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. Check engine oil with snow thrower on level ground.
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.

damage the fuel system of an engine while in
storage. To avoid engine problems, the fuel
system should be emptied before storage of
