Please read the instruction manual and safety precautions
before attempting to start your snow blower.
Your first priority is to read the manual and understand
how to work the snow blower effectively.
Types Of Snow Blowers
There are two basic types of snow blowers:
Single-Stage and Two-Stage.
The Single-Stage snow blower spins the auger at a high
speed to cut and then throw the snow.
The Two-Stage snow blower uses an additional auger for
throwing snow safely out of the path.
Although two-stage blowers are usually better enclosed,
the augers on both machines can and will injure your
fingers and hands.
All exposed belts, drive-trains and gears will cause injuries.
To avoid a back injury, ask for
help if you must lift the snow
blower to and from its storage
Either before or during snow
blower operation do not
consume any alcoholic beverages
or medicine that may interfere
with the safe operation.
