Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about this product.

  1. Bought this model 921030 with electric start. It came with no extension cord. I can’t find where the cord can be connected. No picture in manual. Help? Answer: I had the same question. The extension cord connection is under a cover on the right hand side of the engine. It is right next to the red button for the electric starter. An extension cord does not come with the unit. This must be purchased separately or use a three-pronged extension cord in your house.
  2. There is no description about the self-propelled function. Is this unit self-propelled? Answer: It is self propelled with 6 forward speeds and 2 reverse speeds. It also has the auto trac feature that drives both wheels automatically and then disengages one wheel when you turn the machine around. if you have a large driveway or get lots of snow get one that has a bigger engine than the 254 cc. the 12.5 ft lbs of torque in the 254 cc engine is adequate for my 125 ft driveway here in Wisconsin but i wish i had a bit more power. for most people it will be fine in all but the harshest snowfalls.
