Following these simple steps will ensure you years of use from your RAZR 43cc Gas Ice Auger.
For the best engine performance use 91 Octane Premium Blend Gasoline. When filling the tank, always leave a least an inch below the filler neck.
Use the proper oil, and oil fuel mixture as indicated in your instruction manual. If you use too much oil, the ice auger may be difficult to start, smoke excessively during operation, or not start at all.
To avoid gas leakage when auger is not in use, close the fuel vent cap. The vent cap must be open and remain open for the auger to start and run.

Caution: Ice Auger Blades are extremely sharp and should be handled with caution.
Check and tighten the two screws on each blade. Ensure the screws are tight and will not come loose.
Carefully wipe your blades dry and apply a small amount of oil on the cutting edge of the blade.
Keep your blade guard attached to the auger when not in use. The blade guard protects you, and protects your blades from unnecessary wear.
