Toro CCR 100 not throwing snow far

Even with a light dry snow, it doesn't always throw far. Not consistent. Sometimes it's okay and sometimes snow just seems to sit on the ground and I'm pushing it forward even though rotor blades are turning. Unit bought in 1999. Have replaced belt once, but have never replaced blades.

    I too experience the same problem with my CCR 100, blades spinning light snow only a few inches deep blows only 2 to 3 feet at best and some times just piles up inside of the blades and I end up pushing up a ***** of it, HAVE REPLACED THE BELT this season and first time out still have the same issues. If trying to blow to the side it is even worse, I guess this is why it was given to me. My thoughts are the 3 hp. engine is not enough to blow the snow?

    Mine is going into the shop tomorrow to have blades replaced. Hoping it will work. Might be a week before getting it back. Will let you know what happens after getting it back and there's another snow -- and there's seems to be plenty of snow this year%@!$#^%$

    Just received first snow (3") after getting blower back with new rotor blades. Works like new! Thanks for the advice.

    Replaced paddles, like you said works most of the time, this time it did not improve that much maybe blowing light snow to 5'. Tried different tensions on the belt as well, no better. Engine doesn't bog down just wont throw more than 5' maybe that is all it is capable of.

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

On one side of your machine you will find a cover that you can remove, the belt for the auger is in there. From what I can see there is no adjustment. Check to see how the belt looks.If it's chewed up it will need to be replaced.If you remove the belt try to turn the impeler to see if it turns freely, if it doesn't then check to see if there is something wedged. if nothing is wedged and the belt is off and it still don't turn by hand it could posibly be a bad bearing.if it does turn by hand. Also check the belt pulleies to see if they are ok, the only pulley that will sshould spin freely is the idler pulley, the one on the engine shaft should spin the moter so make sure you pull the spark plug wire off to check that one, and the auger pulley should spin with the auger.

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.

First disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Then use a socket wrench to remove the spark plug. Install the new spark plug into the cylinder head and reconnect the spark plug wire. The Toro CCR 3650 uses a NGK BPMR4A plug gapped to 0.032".

Snow blower will not throw snow far

I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.

Snow blower does not throw snow very far

If this is not a new problem but has been plaguing you from the start then you should check the space between the paddles and the tunnel. Sometimes there are considerable spaces between the paddles and the edge of the housing making the blower less than efficient. In this case I recommend a modification that would seal that gap by placing rubber inserts on the paddles tight to the housing so that there is no space. Here is a youtube video from a gentleman who explains this process simply and should be of assistance.

My snowblower just started back firing,why?

Snow is melting on the engine and causing the spark wiring and/or magneto to short out...
Stop blowing snow and run the engine at a fast idle for awhile to dry off the motor...then it will work again..

My snowblower does not seem to run at full speed. Barely throws snow recently. Any adjustments I can make?

There is a spring attached to the throttle linkage. At the other end is an arm that the spring attaches to. Bend the arm so that the spring is tighter and it will throttle up higher under a load. Don't go too far or you will take a chance of blowing the engine. Best to use a rpm tester and set it to factory specs.

My toro snow blower, ccr 3650, will run good for 10-12 min. Then it just stops. No sputtering. It just shuts off. After I wait awhile, it will start again and run for another 10-12 min. What's wrong...

4 stroke engines that do this, sometimes have a problem with the fuel tank venting. If the tank isn't venting correctly, a vacuum will result, and fuel will cease to flow to the carburetor. Make the the fuel cap isn't getting smothered and is able to "breathe." Check the holes in it and make sure it is clean. If snow covers it while operating, occasionally wipe it off. Many people have had this problem in the South in warm weather with their lawnmowers and as puzzling a problem as it is, sometimes this is the simple solution. Clean that fuel tank cap and keep it that way.

The engine starts but won't actually throw snow the wheel that turns to throw snow is not turning

There is probably a shear pin or bolt that has broken, providing all other belts and accessories are intact. Should be very simple to take the bolt out of the wheel where it attaches to the shaft. Just take it to a hardware store or an outdoor store that sells snowblowers.
