how would you check max rpm- safely..

I was going back and forth on getting a tiny-tach and mount it or just get a simple rpm checker to get close rpm and leave at that. Since this is a snowblower and in the cold always I opt for just checking it. I ordered a vibra tach but guess not sure right choice. Heard pro's and con's. But my question is this: If I am to check with that or really any type- how do I run it out to get close to max rpm without risking throwing a rod or something? wouldn't it be bad to run the max rpm for few minutes while adjusting it? also would I have to do this with no load that the way to set max or close to desired safe rpm anyway? thanks a million- Gene
