I know this might sound crazy but try replacing gas cap, or leave it a little lose as test. If the vent in cap is not functioning no air can enter the fuel tank. Then no fuel will come out the hose on the bottom.

Why does it start losing power after 15 minutes of operation?

Your carburetors ports could be clogged....with gas constantly being pushed through these small holes in the carburetor and it's inside components, tiny gunk could easily clog the small holes in the emulsion tube... remove your carburetor and clean it thoroughly.

My snowblower starts up easy but then it quits

Has it got a shutoff solenoid on the base of the carb? My lawn tractor would run fine for 15 minutes then shut off. Found out it was that solenoid.

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes

The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Is there a GENERIC Snow thrower for John Deere 110?

Two Stage - Snowblower - Snow thrower - Bercomac All of the Bercomac attachments are interchangeable on the same quick hitch mounting. Bolts on in minutes. What a great idea for people who have more than one tractor or buy a new one. No more having to go and buy all new attachments for the new small tractor, just buy a different model hitch kit if it doesn't use the same one. The resale value is preserved when you can sell your attachments to be used on another size or model lawn and garden tractor.

Engine shuts off after about 10 minutes of use

Try loosening the gasoline cap on the engine. My snowblower acted the same way until a mechanic told me it sounds like the engine is not getting enough air. Some gasoline cap vents go bad and starve the engine. If your engine continues to run you can buy a new gas cap.
