Toro single stage 6.5 hp snowthrower loses power after use

We have a 6.5 hp snowblower that we purchased 2 years ago. It was working fine last year but this year when we use it it works fine for 2-3 minutes and then the auger/impeller loses force. It does not propel even in a few centimetres of snow. We have replaced the gasoline and engine oil. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: snow thrower won't throw snow

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

SOURCE: Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.

Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,

No if your belt is shredding there is something rubbing on the belt. Check the idler/tightner pulley see if it spins freely. Check make sure nothing but the pulleys are touching the belt when it is engaged.

I have a MTD snowblower yard machine.how to adjust


There should be metal shoes on the side of the snowblower. They have adjustment bolts that allow the auger housing to move up and down. loosen them and adjust to how close you want it to the ground. It also depends on the model. This process only applies to large self propelled models which are a two stage snowthrower. if its a small single stage there is usually no adjustment.

Not getting any gas


Most people leave gas in the tank year round. This is a problem for engines that are only used a few months out of the year. Old gas will cause the carb to gum up and not allow gas to pass thru into the combustion chamber.

You will need to pull the carburetor part and clean it.

check out this YouTube video. It shows how to clean a single stage snowblower carb

Mine does same. Wait a half hour, restart, runs good for 20 minutes and slows again. Just had it in for a tune up. Machine is only three years old.

Snowthrower. Won't even fire. Can I just clean carburetor?


See my tip on diagnosing small engines. It works for 2-stroke or 4-stroke engines.
It is best not to use starter fluid. Aerosol carb cleaner is what I use.
