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.

Snowblower problems


Possible problems
Belt slipping ( too loose or worn out )
Snow too wet and plugs up.
Motor not powerful enough could be running too slow
Could be the gas screw on the carb set too rich and floods or too lean.
Could be trying to blow too much snow at a time.
Depending on the machines age could be just wore out
In saying this I don't know what type or age of your machine

Why does my snowthrower engine bog down when throwing snow


It should slow down some as it is under a load. As long as it throws the snow far enough no problem. If not the speed governor may need adjusting. Make sure you have fresh fuel.

Engine runs great but as soon as I attempt to move snow it's throws a very little bit, bogs down and "pulls" the engine down to off.

I have a toro snowblower with a 2 cycle engine. When it's just running under no load it seems fine(maybe a little too high of rpm). When it starts throwing snow it gradually slows down until it quits...


It sounds like it is running lean. Back out your carbuerator adjustment screws a quarter turn counterclockwise. These settings should be 1 and a quarter on low speed (closest to engine block) and 1 and a half on high speed (farthest from engine block). These are starting points the adjustment may vary a little eigther way. Never adjust for max rpms that is too lean and will cause engine failure. Hope this helps ya.
