Question about Garden
I replaced the 3 belts on the machine but the main auger stops when I hit snow higher than a couple of inches. The secondary fan keeps up at top speed.. The machine is an MTD yard machine 8hp probably 15 years old. Any help possible appreciated.
Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn
