Question about Toro Blowers Rake and Vac - Electric Blower/Vac - 51573

Snow thrower won't throw snow

1990 Toro model 38080 in the slowest speed it begins to throw snow just fine. After about five feet of travel, the discharge begins to reduce until there is no snow coming out of the chute. The motor runs but the auger has stopped. If the thrower sits still, in neutral for a moment, the snow bubbles out of the base of the chute until enough snow clears then in a few moments the snow comes from the chute graduallly with more force until the chute is clear and the auger gradually returns to normal running speed. I just replaced both the drive belt and the auger belt. My concern is that I will over tighten the auger belt. I had the same problem before I replaced the auger belt.

    every thing seems to run fine --but little snow comes out the shoot-and it is hard to push even though the auger

    turns

The problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load

Snow blower will not throw snow far


I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.

I have a toro snow thrower 622 that is leaking fuel. its coming from under the unit fast. any ideas to why and how to repair?


a rapid volume leak could indicate a cracked/rotted fuel hose. Not uncommon for a gasoline engine that sits for long periods of time between use. If all hoses seem in order a stuck float valve(needle & seat) in the carburator would also cause rapid overflow of fuel. This willm require a carb overhaul to repair

Toro Max 1028LXE Snow Thrower will not travel. Engine runs great, and the two stages of the thrower works but will not move. It was working for about two hours but now it isn't


thank you for the reply. with the belt drive take a ruler and push the belt down you can use your finger as a referance point if you can push it past the half inch mark the belt needs to be tightend you can do that by adjusting the belt tensioner thats done by losening the bolt that holds it in place then moving it so there is no more then half an inch of play in the belt and retightning the bolt. and if the tensioner is at its stops then the belt needs replacement.
