Husqvarna Snow Blower Oil Change
Does your Husqvarna Snow Blower need an oil change? Following an oil change schedule can keep your snow blower prepared for the next big snow storm.
It is recommended to change the oil in your Husqvarna snow blower every 25 hours of use or once each 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
Allow the oil to drain easier by starting your engine for a few minutes. Once the oil is warmed, shut off the engine and allow it to cool before servicing your snow blower.
2) Remove Oil Dipstick
3) Locate Oil Drain Plug
4) Oil Drain Pan
Catch the oil when drained by placing an oil drain pan under your snow blower.
* Depending on where the oil drain is located you may need to use an oil drain hose.
5) Drain Oil
Loosen the oil drain plug using your socket wrench and drain the oil from the engine, making sure to catch it with your oil drain pan.
6) Reinstall Oil Drain Plug
7) Refill With New Oil
Refill with 5W-30 oil by placing the funnel in the oil fill tube.
8) Check Oil Level
After filling the oil, and before and after every use, check the oil level by looking at the oil dipstick.
9) Reinstall Oil Dipstick
Twist the oil dipstick back into the oil fill tube and clean up any excess oil.
10) Check for Leaks
Check for any oil leaks by starting the engine for a few minutes.
Keep your snow blower running properly all winter long by following an oil change schedule. Check your oil before and after each use to make sure you have the correct amount to run your snow blower. Fill or change oil if needed.
Performing regular oil changes can prolong the life of your engine and keep your snow blower prepared for the next snow storm.
