  • To reduce the risk of injury, user must read and understand the operator’s manual before using this product.
  • DO NOT make any adjustments to the product without first stopping the engine and disconnecting the spark plug wire.
  • Burns from hot parts — let the engine cool completely before touching hot parts.
  • Injury from moving parts.
  • To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, be careful when working around gasoline. Keep cigarettes, sparks and flames away from all fuel‐related parts.
Only the left axle has two holes, and the axle pin can be removed and repositioned. It is optional to slide one wheel past the pin hole in the axle and to place the locking pin into the axle outside the wheel without locking it into the drive axle. This creates a pivot wheel that allows the operator to easily turn the snow blower during operation by using the "free wheel" as a pivot point. Though this makes turning easier, it decreases drive wheel traction by 50%. Below will show how to convert this to a 2 wheel drive system
  1. If the wheel is slid further in on the axle with the pin inserted into the outside hole of the axle, the machine will move freely without the engine on. (One Wheel Drive)
    See below.
  2. If the pin is inserted into the inside hole of the axle, the machine will only move when the drive control is engaged when the engine is on. (Two Wheel Drive.)
    See below.
  3. Locking.
    See below.
