The manual has a step by step procedure for adjusting the cables for the auger, speed selector and drivewheels. One socket wrench and about 10 min should do it.

My Yardworks is an MTD product and it's manual should be similar to yours. If you lost it, you can download it from MTD's site.

Replace snowblower belt


Locate the two top auger housing fastening bolts and remove. The auger housing will tilt forward and then lift the housing off of the bottom 2 bolts/bushings. You will need to support the traction frame as it will try to fall onto the handles.

Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

I have a new Troy Bilt Snowblower. My father ran over a large extension cord while blowing snow, which in turned wrapped the cord around the auger shaft ends. I can now only get one side of the auger to...


Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!
