Question about Toro Blowers Rake and Vac - Electric Blower/Vac - 51573

Open Question

I have a Yard machine snowblower that wont throw snow I replaced the shear pin that was bent but the augers still wont turn. I checked the belts and they seem to be in place. The 2 stage auger shaft turns but not the shaft that turns the main augers. Could you tell me the problem?

    That was the problem. I also called the company and they said the same thing about the worm gear. I decided to buy a Gravely plow instead. Thanks for your help.

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

Hi,
Yes, you have a shear pin and that is probably the problem...
The shear pin often will not fall out and look like a normal piece but in fact be broken...
The shear pin usually is in the main shaft from the transmission to the auger drive...
Some are right on the auger its self...look around you will find it...

I have a snow king 5hp snow blower. while clearing snow, the snow only oozes out the shoot.


IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A TWO STAGE SNOWBLOWER WITH ONLY ONE STAGE WORKING. I BET THAT YOUR PROBLEM IS THE AUGER IS TURNING BUT THE IMPELLER BLADE THAT IS BEHIND THE AUGER HAS PROBABLY JAMMED UP WITH SOMETHING AND IS SPINNING ON THE SHAFT. YOU WILL HAVE TO REACH BACK AND GRAB IT AND TRY TO TURN IT ON THE SHAFT BY HAND.MAKE SURE THE BLOWER IF OFF!!!! . IF YOU CAN TURN IT BY HAND EASILY IT HAS EITHER BROKE A SHEAR PIN OR BOLT OR SOME TIMES THEY WILL TACK WELD THEM TO THEM TO THE SHAFT. GOOD LUCK

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.

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.

Screeching snow blower


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.

Electric snowthrower motor turns, blades don't


You will have to take the top cover off of the snowblower there should be a belt that runs the auger
