To disengage release the left lever.
The snow blower is equipped with a control interlock feature to allow the operator one hand free to change the direc on of the discharge or adjust the discharge deflector without stopping the forward progress of the machine. The interlock feature allows the operator’s left hand to be free during use after both handles are fully engaged into the opera ng posi on. The fee hand can then rotate the discharge chute or adjust the discharge deflector angle. In order to stop the impeller / collector assembly and the transmission system, BOTH handles must be released. The impeller control handle can be fully engaged, and the transmission lever can be engaged and disengaged without releasing the impeller control handle (free to engage or disengage at any me). This allows the impeller / collector assembly to con nue to discharge snow while stopping to change speeds or allow the snow blower to clear the impeller and collector housing of snow and ice when encountering heavy snowfalls. The operator of the snow blower should become familiar with this feature in a clear open area away from vehicles, homes, and away from public streets or areas with traffic.

Snow BEAST Opera ng Instruc ons Using your BEAST Snow Blower The following ps will help ensure proper and long las ng use of your BEAST snow blower. ALWAYS wear proper Figure 1 • Before use, always ensure there is nothing lodged in the collector, or impeller area. Inspect the auger and impel- ler for damage from rocks or other debris, and ensure there is no string, twine, etc stuck on the auger or im- peller shafts. Visually inspect for loose hardware or any • Inspect the area you will be opera ng the snow blower. Avoid areas with rocks, large branches and limbs, or other debris that may damage the snow-blower. If oper- a ng the snow blower on a non-paved surface, lower the skid shoes to increase ground clearance, and pre- Figure 2 • To prolong the life of the fric on wheel system, do not par ally engage the drive system, or con nually engage and dis-engage the drive system if the engine begins to slow under heavy loads. When opera ng the snow-blower in dense wet snow, or deep snowfalls, select a slower for- Figure 3 • The snow blower uses a solid axle which means the wheels on either side of the snow blower turn together. When turning the snow-blower, do NOT stop the collec- tor/impeller assembly. Keep the transmission engaged and pull on the handlebars to shift weight to the outside re while pushing the snow blower through the turn. This will assist in turning the snow blower, and is espe- cially important for the 45SB which uses double res on each side. ⇒ Example: If turning left, shift the weight of the snow blower to the right. More weight on the right wheel helps the right side push the snow blower in the direc on you wish to turn. ⇒ The wheels slip beter when spinning than when sta onary. Keeping the transmission engaged aids in turning the snow blower. Figure 4 • Set the desired dis-charge direc on and angle before engaging the auger/impeller.

Snow BEAST Avoiding Impeller Freeze‐Up Impeller freeze-up occurs when snow and ice remain in the impeller housing after the job is finished. The remaining snow and ice melts par ally and only temporarily due to residual heat in the snow blower. The remaining mixture re-freezes and essen ally “welds” the impeller to the impeller housing and prevents rota on of the impeller. Snow blowers are especially suscep ble to freeze-up immediately after use when the machine is stored outside or in an un-heated garage where the temperature is below freezing. 30SB, 36SB, 45SB Residual snow in the discharge chute and impeller housing melts in the heat of the engine and fric on from other rota ng components. The mel ng residual drips and flows to the botom of the impeller housing which is the furthest point from a heat source. During very cold condi ons, the residual cannot escape through the drain hole before it freezes in the impeller housing and seizes the impeller. The remaining snow and ice pools in the botom after the drain hole, and con nues to build up ice around the components. The drain hole is located at the lowest point on the back of the impeller If the impeller is frozen up when the impeller / collector handle is engaged, the belts will bog down the engine and the belts will begin to burn on the engine pulley since they cannot move, or a shear pin could fail. To avoid this, we recommend manually spinning the impeller before star ng the snow blower to ensure it moves freely. If already frozen, a hairdryer will usually clear the ice quickly. To avoid impeller freeze-up when storing in cold condi ons, we recommend: • Run the auger/impeller for a few minutes after snow blower use to clear any residual snow. • After shu ng off the snow blower, dust off any remaining snow. • Manually spin the impeller so that none of the blades point straight down. • Place a heat-source (an incandescent light bulb works well) in the housing (see photo right). • Tarp the snow blower to retain the heat and to keep addi onal snow off the machine. Use cau on when covering a hot snow blower. The muffler can melt covers or catch fire. Never cover a snow blower immediately after Rev Nov2014 shutdown. 19 Snow BEAST General Maintenance The Importance of Maintenance Regular maintenance is essen al to ensure your snow blower con nues to deliver safe and high-quality performance. 30SB, 36SB, 45SB CAUTION To help you properly care for your snow blower, the following pages include a recommended maintenance schedule, rou ne inspec on procedures, and simple maintenance procedures using basic hand tools. Maintenance is the responsibility of the owner and must be performed regularly. More difficult service tasks or tasks that require special tools are best handled by a recommended service technician or other qualified mechanic. The maintenance schedule described on page 21 applies to snow blowers used under normal opera ng condi ons. If you operate your snow blower under severe condi ons, such as sustained prolonged use or use it in unusually wet, dusty or rocky condi ons, consult your servicing dealer for recommenda ons applicable to your individual needs and use. Be sure to use genuine BEAST Snow Blower replacement parts when servicing your snow blower to assure the best quality, safety and performance. Need Help? Parts, Service and Technical Assistance (919)‐550‐3221 Rev Nov2014 CAUTION! Before making any adjustments and/or servicing to your BEAST Snow Blower , make sure the snow blower is on a level surface, with the igni on switch off, the key removed, and the augers disengaged. Also, disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs and ground them against the engine to prevent inadvertent star ng. If you are performing adjustments or maintenance after opera ng the snow blower, allow the unit to cool and always wear protec ve clothing. Check Oil Level CHECK ENGINE OIL BEFORE EACH USE. Add oil as needed according to dips ck level. Change oil as recommended on page 21 and follow proper procedures to check and change oil. CAUTION Check Skid Shoes Check the skids to ensure that the auger does not contact the paved or gravel surface. Adjust skids as necessary to make up for wear on the snow blower skid shoe surface. Adjust skid shoes to have 1/4” clearance across the scrapper blade to reduce forces during turning and maneuvering. Replacement skid shoes are available for purchase through GXi Parts & Service. Part# B07111 serviceandwarrantyonline.com CAUTION: Always wear work gloves when performing impeller and collector maintenance and beware of sharp edges. Be sure the engine is off, the key removed, and the spark plug wires are disconnected from the spark plugs to prevent inadvertent star ng. Shear Bolts Check shear bolts (as well as other bolts) at frequent intervals for proper ghtness to be sure the equip- ment is in safe working condi on. Do NOT use standard bolts to replace shear bolts. Severe damage or injury could occur. Warranty is also void if shear bolts are not used. Shear bolts are available for replacement through GXi Parts & Service. Part# B06711 serviceandwarrantyonline.com After Blowing Snow Allow the machine to run with the impeller engaged for a few minutes after blowing snow to prevent freeze-up of the augers/impeller.

The following instruc ons and procedures must be followed in order to keep the emissions from your BEAST engine within the emission stand- ards. Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control devices and systems may be performed by any engine repair establishment or individu- al, using parts that are ‘‘cer fied’’ to EPA standards. The emission control systems on your BEAST engine were designed, built, and cer fied to conform with EPA regula ons. We recommend the use of genu- ine BEAST parts whenever you have maintenance done. These original-design replacement parts are manufactured to the same standards as the original parts, so you can be confident of their performance. The use of replacement parts that are not of the original design and quality may impair the effec ve- ness of your emission control system.

The manufacturer or re-builder of the part must cer fy that use of the part will not result in a failure of the engine to comply with emission regula ons.
