The owners manual does not specify either than 2 are provided. If you're replacing a broken one, match the size up or even go up in size as long as it fits through the hole, but don't go down a size.

Yes, the manual does not specify the size. I misplaced the two extra supplied ones and I don't have ready access to a nearby hardware store nor wish the inconvenience of hauling the unit into one to figure it out.

I need to know the proper size so I may place an order online. I could get a multi-size pack but it seems wasteful to spend more for what I don't need.

I know that a replacement blade comes with extra cotter pin. You might likely need a new blade at some point so that could be a way to get the correct size cotter pin. 
However, I have no idea what the correct size pin is.

Geoff, I know I'm not alone when it comes to stocking lots of small parts, especially if you're a DIYer. I have small parts bins with literally thousands of various parts sorted and labelled. These parts cost little compared to time wasted making a trip to the hardware store, not to mention gas. Anytime I need a part I don't already have, I specifically buy multi-packs so that I would have it next time.
