First post from a newbie:

This past Nov I bought my 2410 on sale at Lowes. As of yet have NOT had a chance to use it. Weather man says that is going to change tomorrow. And I have to say of all the power equipment I've owned in my long life, the owners manual and op manual are the worst I've ever seen. Tells all about how to start with elec start and all that. But NOWHERE can I find where it says how to turn it off?? Do you simply remove that plastic "key"? If it's really that simple, why the heck didn't they just say it? Don't mean to look like the dummy of the year, but if ya don't ask ya don't know. Thanks for helping out the dummy ya'll.

What make is the 2410?

Ya, manuals are getting better and better. down to about 6 pages, in 3 languages. Remember, that this new manual style is in order to better serve you (or serve you better) or whatever the expression is when they take something good and make it useless.

Does your engine have an toggle switch on it, marked ON/OFF or RUN/STOP?

If it has a throttle control, there might be a kill switch that activates when you turn it right to the turtle and beyond. If all else fails use the safety key. If you have a fuel shutoff valve, you can shut that off, and let it empty the carburetor and it will stop. I usually use the fuel valve so the carb stays empty when I'm not moving snow from hither to yon.

Work fascinates me.

I have one too. You can pull the key or simply move the throttle down to stop and it kills the ignition.

NOTE:
For detailed starting instructions and more
information on all engine controls, refer to the engine
manual packed with your unit.

Know Your Snow Thrower
Choke Control
Activating the choke control closes the choke plate on the
carburetor and aids in starting the engine.
Primer
Depressing the primer forces fuel directly into the engine’s
carburetor to aid in cold-weather starting.
Oil Fill
Engine oil level can be checked and oil added through the
oil fill.
Ignition Key
The ignition key is a safety device. Insert key and snap in
place; do not turn ignition key. Pull the key out halfway to
stop the engine. Remove key when the unit is not in use.
Throttle Control
The throttle control regulates the speed of the engine
and will shut off the engine when moved into the STOP
position.

The engine manual mentions stopping the engine on page 15.

That's what were here for !!

You should look into doing an impeller mod as the Troys tend to have a pretty good gap between the impeller and the housing.

https://www.snowblowerforum.com/forum...lt-2410-a.html

In the future when those skids get thin or you just want to upgrade look into getting some better ones. The OEM ones are thin and one sided.
I was in a hurry and grabbed Ariens skids but there are some nice options out there depending on what your running it on. I have gravel so the Ariens ones work great. If I had concrete I'd go with poly.
I also mounted them forward as I'd prefer them to hit something first rather than the bucket or scraper.
