Question about Husqvarna Chain Saw 20" Bar

Open Question

Pressure clutch on Husqvarna snow blower wore out in 8 hrs use.

The hard rubber pressure disk that drives the wheels on a brand new husquavarna 30 inch cut snowblower wore down almost all the way through ity in 8 hrs use. There was no visable sharp edges to ware thru. I never drove it into a snow bank and let the wheels continue to turn. I would feather the drive handle making it go slowly. They was using it incorrectly but didn't tell me how to drive into a snow bank to blow it. What could I have been doing wrong?

Check the air filter and the muffler if either are plugged up it will not run smooth. Carb hi and low screws are very sensitive so if you change them, only move them a little at a time.

Sounds like the clutch is still grabing. Easy solution is to apply the chain brake at idle to stop the chain turning. Try adjusting the L screw for a smoother idle.

The chainbrake has actuated, you need to pull the hand gurd fully toward the rear of the machine until you hear the click of the brake unloading.

Turn the switch to on, push the primer bolb about 8 times to get the fuel up to the carburetor, put the throttle about 1 quarter to a half way up, put the choke on closed and it sohould start. When it sputters open the choke slightly. Let it warm up and open the choke completely.

My simplicity model 870s snow blower jumps or I should say falls out of 4th gear.


Most snow blowers have a driven disc on the engine, and a disk with a rubber ring on the outer rim as the driven disk on an output shaft, connected to the axle of the machine. The rubber rimed tire runs on the driven disk either close to the center or further out, kind of like a record player tone arm You can adjust the drive position by adjusting the location of the driven wheel, this is usually done via the linkage which is basically threaded rod with an adjustment nut and a lock nut

Troybilt snow thrower wheels lock up cannot push or pull. Model 5524. Whats up?


Sounds like friction disk is not retracting for pressure plate. Flip snowblower up on front end and take out 4 or 6 bolt out of cover plate. wheels will be in the air so try to turn wheels and look. Your fiction disk is the rubber wheel that moves with you gear shift lever. It should not be touching round metal plate unless your handle on bars is push down to in gage drive. Most snowblowers have a spring to pull metal plate back your probably broke or rusted off.

Page 17, figure 23 of the manual shows a "Clutching Idler Arm Bracket" that should take up slack. Does it have a broken spring, or is it seized because of ice or rust? The very top of the page does mention that the belts aren't adjustable, but why else is the idler arm there if not as a tensioner?

Honda hs55 when handle depressed blower fan moves at fast speedauger turns very slow.if auger makes contact with snow auger and blower fan stopsnew belt was installed no slippage of belt present


I suspect that all is needed is a little adjustment of the rod attached to the handle, which hooks on a lever at the bottom of the snow blower drive axle case. Try adjusting the nut two turns, that will pull the rod a little bit more and engage the rubber faced drive wheel, giving it a snugger connection. If this has been checked or still does not help, then I would check inside the case where the drive axle is located. There is a rubber faced drive wheel (as noted above), that runs against a smooth flat metal pulley. The rubber on the drive wheel could be worn out and not engaging properly. I would also check on the front of the case where you installed new belts to make sure that the brake shoe puck that connects to the auger pulley is not binding or perhaps has flipped out of its normal location.

My drive does not engage I checked the clutch cable ,the drive wheel rubber is worn but still sufficient,it could be a shear pin but I dont know where it is I have an MTD/5/24 its likely at least 10 years...


There are a few things to check on this unit First is if the pins are in both tires. the quick pins are removable and allow for the machine to freewheel for easy transport.

I would check to see if the drive disk is coming to a stop when the cable is tensioned properly and engaged. If it stops then the belt needs replaced. There are a few updates on the different models for idler pulleys. I would recommend checking with a shop like www.arcolawn.com to get belts and check for updates.

If the drive disk is spinning and the pins are in then the problem is from the rubber drive disk to the axles. If there is no grinding from the transaxle then the problem is in the clearance of the drive disk.

Good luck.
