Husqvarna Single Stage Snow Blower Oil Change
Does your Husqvarna Single Stage Snow Blower need an oil change? Following a regular oil change schedule can keep your snow blower running properly all winter long. Prepare your snow blower for the next big snow storm by staying up to date on your maintenance schedule
It is recommended to change the oil in your Husqvarna Single Stage Snow Blower every 25 hours of use or once a season, whichever comes first.
Before starting, refer to your owner’s manual for your snow blowers oil change schedule, the oil recommended for your snow blower, and any specific tools needed for your snow blower model.
*Before servicing your snow blower make sure the snow blower is turned off and remove the ignition key to reduce the risk of accidental start-up.
Changing the Oil
1) Warm the Engine
To drain the oil easier, turn on the engine and allow it to warm for a few minutes. Once the oil is warmed, shut off the engine and allow it to cool before servicing your engine.
2) Locate Oil Drain Tube
Husqvarna Single Stage Snow Blowers allow you to drain the oil through the oil drain plug, or the oil drain tube.
3) Oil Drain Pan
Place an oil drain pan under the oil drain tube to catch the oil as it falls.
4) Remove Oil Drain Tube Cap
5) Drain Oil
Tip the snow blower backwards to drain the oil.
6) Reinstall Oil Drain Tube Cap
7) Remove Oil Dipstick
8) Refill With New Oil
Place a funnel in oil fill tube and refill with 5W-30 oil until it reaches the "Full" mark.
9) Check Oil Level
After refilling, and before and after every use, check the oil level by looking at the lines on the oil dipstick.
10) Reinstall Oil Dipstick
Twist the oil dipstick back into the oil fill tube and clean up any excess oil.
11) Check for Leaks
Start the engine for a few minutes and check for any leaks.
Follow an oil change schedule to keep your snow blower running properly all winter long. Check your oil before and after each use to make sure you have the correct amount in your snow blower. Damage can occur if your snow blower is running on low or no oil.
Prolong the life of your engine and keep your snow blower prepared for the next snow storm by performing regular oil changes.
