The Yard Machine brand line of snow throwers, manufactured by MTD Products, includes single- and two-stage snow throwers with manual or electric starters, different clearing widths ranging from 21 to 30 inches and intake heights ranging from 13 to 21 inches. These snow throwers use Powermore or MTD brand overhead valve horizontal shaft engines, ranging in size from to cubic centimeters, which require a high-quality 5W or synthetic 0W, 4-cycle motor oil. MTD recommends using a high-quality, 4-cycle or similar high detergent motor oil that meets or exceeds the SF or SG service classification. Motor oils with the recommended viscosity, 5W or synthetic 0W, keep the engine running smoothly in the coldest winter conditions. The manufacturer warns that non-detergent or 2-cycle motor oils will damage and shorten the life of the engine.

This is a Yard-Man built 0. However power is not routed to the wheels. The auger is positioned low enough so that it is in constant contact with the ground, so as it spins, it grips the ground much like a wheel and drags the machine forward. As a result of being auger propelled, the Yard-Man 21 Inch single stage snow thrower needs to be manually pulled backwards.
When you own a Yard-Man snow blower, chances are a significant snowfall doesn't even make you flinch. But when you fire up the snow blower and find that the auger won't engage, you may start to sweat a little at the thought of having to shovel the snow yourself. Instead of cleaning the walkways and driveway manually, take a few minutes to replace the cable, also known as the auger cable, in your machine to get it up and running in no time. Remove the spark plug wire from the spark plug to prevent accidental engagement of the snow blower's engine. Remove the ignition key from the ignition, and lay it aside.
