I have an mtd 2 stage 10/28 snow blower model 317e662g013, it starts up fine and drives through all the gears with no problem but when I use the auger the engine slows until it stalls whether it's in snow or not, any suggestions?

SOURCE: on my two stage snow blower--main auger stops turning .

Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

Hi, The blower spins at full speed? If it does the belt, pulley, and shaft are good. Look at the shaft from the fan to the gear box while it's running and that shaft should be turning at the speed of the fan.
If the blower spins at full speed and the auger doesn't the most likely problem is the worm gear transmission from the blower shaft to the auger shaft.
A good way to visually inspect this is: With the machine turned off and the spark plug wire unhooked go to the front and try to rotate the auger by hand. If the gear box is good you will only be able to move the auger less than an inch. If the box is bad you will be able to move the auger a lot farther. While you are there recheck your shear pins.
You can also remove the blower drive belt and have someone turn the pulley by hand while you watch the auger. Put resistance on the auger with your gloved hand. If the box is good the auger will move smoothly in you hand. If it is bad, it will ****, move roughly, or stop.
While the other person is turning the pulley and you have some resistance on the auger look closely at the shaft running from the gearbox back to the blower. On some models there is a connecting sleeve and the roll pin that connects the sleeve to the shaft and gearbox will break.
If the gearbox is bad, it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.

I have an MTD single-stage snow blower that I replace the other the cable and the belt and under a load it's still not throwing snow


There should be 2 holes on the handle that engages the auger belt, use the top hole as it will increase the belt tension.
Check the condition of the rubber auger's rubber paddles as they are subject to wear and should be replaced if any signs of excessive
wear is present.

How do I improve the throwing ability of my MTD 5/20 2 stage snow blower? It bogs and jams with just a little snow on the 2nd stage thrower.


Do a google search for "Clarence Modification" You can buy the Rubber material yourself without buying the 'real' kit.
I have done this Mod to many machines of all makes and models. It has helped them all.

My yardmachine snow blower 8hp auger won't turn. I replaced the cable and belt but it still won't turn. What else could be wrong?


Check the auger shear pins replace if necessary with correct parts(not regular bolts).
If auger and the impeller are not turning your cable is out of adjustment.
If only the auger doesn't turn, and the shear pins are ok then the brass/bronze gear has shredded which is why proper shear pins must be used. Donyboy73 on youtube show how to replace that gear on an older but similar MTD affiliated blower.

How can I keep my 2 stage snowblower in high?


I will assume you are referring to the 2 stages in the front of the machine. The spiral auger rakes are the first stage, they are designed to collect the snow and feed it to the impeller. The impeller is the 2nd stage and is to throw the snow up the chute. The lower rakes in the front do nopt throw snow only collect it.

Mtd snow blower,8hp 2 stage, 1995, Problem: oil leaking on axles, and on casing wear axle come out.wheel stop turning , no gear selection. could you direct me ???


The oil leak normaly would make the 'friction disc' inside the frame slip so as to not drive the axle.
Locate the oil leak
#1 engine crankshaft seal
#2 engine crankcase cover gasket
#3 engine overfull so that the excess oil is coming out of the crankcase breather tube and running down inside the frame
