1. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection should
be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for
the unit. Receptacles are available having built-in GFCI
protection and may be used for this measure
2. Make sure that the mains voltage matches that listed on
the unit's rating label. Using the improper voltage can
damage the motor and injure the user.
3. To reduce the risk of electric shock, this appliance has a
polarized plug (i.e. one blade is wider than the other). Use
this appliance only with a polarized UL-, CSA- or ETL-
listed extension cord recommended for outdoor,
all-weather use, such as the Snow Joe
+ Sun Joe
Power Joe SJTW-A 14-gauge 50-foot extension cord with
lighted end (Model PJEXT50-B). Visit snowjoe.com to
purchase this extension cord online or, to order by phone,
call 1-866-SNOWJOE (1-866-766-9563).
The appliance plug will t into a polarized extension
cord only one way. If the appliance plug does not t
fully into the extension cord, reverse the plug. If the plug
still does not t, obtain a correct polarized extension
cord. A polarized extension cord will require the use of a
polarized wall outlet. The extension cord plug will t into
the polarized wall outlet only one way. If the plug does
not t fully into the wall outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug
still does not t, contact a qualied electrician to install
the proper wall outlet. Do not modify the appliance plug,
extension cord receptacle, or extension cord plug
in any way.
4. To prevent electric shock, use only with an extension cord
suitable for outdoor use, such as SW-A, SOW-A, STW-A,
STOW-A, SJW-A, SJOW-A, SJTW-A, or SJTOW-A.
Before use, check that the extension cord is in good
condition. When using an extension cord, make sure to
use one heavy enough to carry the current your product
will draw. For lengths less than 50 ft (15 m), a No.14 AWG
extension cord should be used. An undersized cord will
cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and
5. To prevent the appliance cord from disconnecting from the
extension cord during operation, make a knot with the two
cords as shown in Table 1.
6. Do not abuse the cord. Never pull the electric lawn mower
+ mulcher by the cord or yank the cord to disconnect it
from the receptacle. Keep the cord away from heat, oil,
and sharp edges.
