Snow Blower Tips

Updated 7 months ago by Juan Velez

Auger(s) Not Turning:

  • Check the tension on the cable and make any necessary adjustments.
  • Check under the belt cover to see if a belt has broken or worn itself or has come off.
  • Check to see if the cable has become unhooked.
  • Check for any broken shear pins.
  • Replace if necessary - turn the unit off, remove the engine safety key, and disconnect the spark plug wire to prevent accidental start.

Impeller Not Turning

  • Check the tension on the cable and make any necessary adjustments.
  • Check to see if the hexagonal bolts holding the axle behind the worm gear are there. Turn the unit off, remove the engine safety key, disconnect the spark plug wire to prevent an accidental start. Turn the impeller by hand and if it appears loose, and does not rotate the augers at the same time, then the two hexagonal bolts holding the impeller on the shaft are broken and or sheared. This is caused by either trying to go into heavy snow too quickly or that the speed of the engine was not set high enough.

Only One Wheel Moves

  • Our snow blowers can be powered by one or both wheels. If both wheels need to be powered, simply remove the spring lock pin on the left wheel and slide the wheel outwards to the edge of the axle; insert the spring lock pin into the holes through the axle.

For both wheel to be powered, use the outside hole. For just one wheel, use the inside hole.
