Clearing a Clogged Discharge Chute

Hand contact with the rotating impeller inside the discharge chute is the most common cause of injury associated with snow throwers. Never use your hand to clean out the discharge chute. To clear the chute:

  • SHUT THE ENGINE OFF!
  • Wait 10 seconds to be sure the impeller blades have stopped rotating.
  • Always use a clean-out tool, not your hands.

– Slightly overlap each successive path to ensure all snow will be removed.
– Throw snow downwind whenever possible.
– Adjust the skid plates to proper height for current snow con di tions. See “TO ADJUST SKID PLATES” in this section of this manual.
– For extremely heavy snow, re duce the width of snowremoval by over lap ping previous path and moving slowly.
