Question about Garden
I need need to tighten the belt for the auger on my Atlas Snow Thrower
There should be an idler pulley with some sort of adjustment. Usually it is just a pulley with a bolt through the center that goes through a slotted hole on the frame. If you loosen the bolt and move the pulley toward the belt, it will increase the tension on the belt. If the bolt is already to the end of the slotted whole and cannot be moved further in, then the belt is worn and stretched and needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that there are other idler adjustment mechanisms that might be used. This is just the most common.
