Proper maintenance is key to maximizing the performance and lifespan of your MTD snow blower. Follow these snow blower tips to help ensure that you are getting the most out of your machine.
Before performing any snow blower or thrower maintenance, disengage all control levers and stop the engine. Wait until the auger/impeller comes to a complete stop. Disconnect the spark plug wire and ground it against the engine to prevent unintended starting.
As part of your snow blower maintenance, regularly check bolts and screws for proper tightness to keep the machine working. Also, visually inspect it for any damage.
Do not change the engine governor setting. The governor controls the maximum safe operating speed of the engine.
During routine snow blower maintenance, check control levers to verify they engage and disengage properly. Adjust them if necessary.
