Snow Thrower Operation Tips


  • Do not put hands or feet near rotating parts, in the auger/impeller housing or chute assembly.  Contact with the rotating parts can amputate hands and feet.

  • The auger/impeller control lever is a safety device.  Never bypass its operation.  Doing so makes the machine unsafe, and may cause personal injury.

  • The control levers must operate easily in both directions and automatically return to the disengaged position when released.

  • Never operate with a missing or damaged chute assembly.  Keep all safety devices in place and working.

  • Never run an engine indoors, or in a poorly ventilated area.

  • Exercise extreme caution when operating on, or crossing, gravel surfaces.
