OPERATION DISCHARGE CHUTE CAUTION : Do not move speed control lever CONTROL LEVER when traction drive control lever is engaged . Damage to the snow thrower can result . • Slower speeds are for heavier snow and faster speeds are for light snow and transporting the snow thrower . It is recommended that you use a slower speed until you are familiar with the operation of the snow thrower . NOTE : When both traction drive and auger control levers are engaged , the traction drive control lever will lock the auger control lever in the engaged position . This will allow you to release your right hand from the handle and adjust the discharge chute direction without interrupting the snow CHUTE DEFLECTOR throwing process . REMOTE CONTROL LEVER FIG . 14 TRACTION DRIVE _ LLEVER TO THROW SNOW ( See Fig . 15 ) The auger rotation is controlled by the auger control lever located on the right side handle . • Squeeze auger control lever to handle to engage the auger and throw snow . • Release the auger control lever to stop throwing snow .
