John Deere 524D- in need of operators manual

I have been looking for a smaller 2 stage snow blower that I could transport in my Honda CR-V. So, I recently picked up a 524D in excellent shape. The green paint still shines. And yes it will fit in my CR-V.

On to my question..
I am looking for an operators manual? Does anyone have one in PDF that they would like to share? Currently, there is one on eBay that I could get if a cannot find a PDF copy. I did a search, and found the tech manual, but no operators manual that I could find.

Thanks,

Scott

Hey, I have a CR-V as well and a lot of stuff can fit in the back, but the low roof does make the handles rub some. Often times I find myself having to put a block under the front to tip the handles back a bit. I am considering a hitch carrier for mine since that would eliminate the issues of the tall stuff and the snow melting inside if you are going to be using it.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

I have the rubber tray that fits in the back. It seems like it does a good job, but not all of the snow blower fits in the tray. The rear hitch carrier seems like the best way to go.

I have a 2007. It is the one that does not have the rear mounted spare tire.

Mine is a 2000 so I have the original design. They have had 4 major body styles so far. 2007 is the 3rd style I believe. I also have the rubber tray for the back, but it is a little small for big things like that. Could be your roof is a little higher than mine. Mine sits higher off the ground I think.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Gosh, I never thought of trying to put a snowblower in the back of the wife's CRV. I can't imagine she'd even stand for it if I did. I think I'd opt for one of those rear hitch carriers.

We're still looking for that manual in pdf form for ya'.

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

I had a 2001 and a 2003 before my 2007. I agree, I don't believe there would be enough room in the 97-01's for a snow blower. However, I think there is more room in the 02-06 models than there is in the 07 and newer ones. I actually hauled my 726 in my 2003. I had to remove the handlebars though.
