My Snow thrower will only go in reverse.

It was working fine. I stopped to shovel the steps while the engine was still running. I went back to continue bllowing snow ant it would only travel in reverse. What must I do to get it to go forward again? I have an Ariens ST724 7 HP snow thrower.

I would check your traction drive disc for wear or shredding.With low or little fuel in tank you can safely grab handle bars and lift machine up on it's auger housing.Then remove shield from under machine and inspect metal disc with rubber around it.If rubber looks worn you can get a replacement traction drive disc easily from most small engine repair shop's or go online and look for your nearest Ariens dealer.

As long as your deck mounts match up then you should be good to go. You might have to change to a different sized belt though. Other than that everything should be fine.

Just wondering if my ariens st350 snow machine uses detergent or non-detergent oil? Thanks


Hello. Actually, Many snow thrower manufacturers now recommend using synthetic motor oil particularly for subzero temperatures. Synthetic oil, such as Mobil 1 doesn’t contain any of the waxes that cause conventional oils to congeal in cold temperatures. As a result, synthetic oil makes starting easier and also prevent parts from running dry when a cold engine first starts. Synthetic oil also has higher film strength and stands up to high temperatures better than conventional oils. You’ll pay more for a quart for a full synthetic and you still have to change it as often as conventional oils, but you are giving your snow thrower engine the best chance for a long trouble free life.
