wiring is a three- wire grounded system. If
you are not sure, ask a licensed electrician.
If your house wire system is not a

change the discharge direction of the snow.
(Figure 12) Push the remote chute lever (2)
forward to discharge the snow high and far.
Pull the remote chute lever (2) back to dis-
charge the snow down.
5. Check the air pressure in the tires. The cor-
rect air pressure is 14 PSI (1 BAR) to 17 PSI
(1.25 BAR). Do not exceed the maximum
amount of air pressure shown on the side of
How To Stop The Engine (Figure 2)
