Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
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

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.
