New Machine No Fuel shutoff

Ok So I just bought a toro snowmaster 824 qxe 36003 and I did not realize it did not have a fuel shutoff. I had an Ariens Deluxe 28, was too big for my property, and everytime I finished I would turn off the fuel and let it run empty. I pulled the cover off and there is plenty of room to mount a fuel shutoff on the side panel under the key. My question is I know it is a good idea to have one and every machine should have one. My question surrounds if I install one would I void the warranty as I would drill a hole in the side panel to mount it. I know this is a dumb thing to worry about but It has been a long time since I have had a warranty on something as I buy everything used.


Thanks in Advanced for your Opinion

I did a search and did not find anything about shutoff valves.

You could call their tech line. I would think it would not void the warranty. If it did void the warranty, it would be related to the cover or anything you broke or reinstalled improperly.

THat is the same one I found at Amazon and planned to use. I did not find that article. The search came back with nothing about a fuel shutoff. I found that strange.

That is what I was thinking too. I think I will just add it and call it a day. It also does not have a filter. I found that to be strange too.

Go ahead and put one in. For warranty work you would be dealing with the attitude of the dealer, not the company.

Hello You can probably just install one like an OEM in the empty hole left of carb cover. Itís just a regular turn off with a large round turnoff knob.

I looked at the time, I posted it five minutes AFTER you posted this thread. Odd timing huh?
