Snowdog: Long-Term Storage Tips

08/06/2023


Guys, we hope all you enjoy the summer weather and have a great time. Probably, with your Snowdog. That’s what we are curious about. But, if you aren’t planning to get your Snowdog out of the garage till the next winter, we are happy to remind you how to prepare it for the “summer sleep”. Here are our tips.

  1. Clean the Snowdog.
  2. Warm up the engine and change the engine oil.
  3. Fill the fuel tank completely.
  4. Shut down the fuel lock.
  5. Place a fuel container under carburetor.
  6. Install the screw back and tighten it.
  7. Unscrew the drain screw on the carburetor and drain the fuel. Install the screw back and tighten it.
  8. Take the battery off and charge it. Check the battery charge at least every two months. Charge as needed.
  9. Store the battery in a room with a temperature range of 33 °F (+1 °C) to 68 °F (+20 °C).
  10. Rotate the track half a turn at least every six months.
  11. Cover the Snowdog from dust.

This preservation ensures the safety of the Snowdog for up to 12 months, provided the storage rules are observed. After 12 months, prepare the Snowdog for operation and run the engine for a few minutes. If further storage is required, prepare it for storage again.

Good luck!
