Toro 826 le snowthrower

When you engage both the auger lever and the traction lever, the traction lever is supposed to lock the auger lever down, freeing the right hand. My auger lever does not stay down. How can I fix this?

part#322-9

It may be hard to spot on the auger shaft as it may have sheared flush with the holes so look close. You may also need to remove the part of the bolt remaning inside the shaft.

SOURCE: I have a 5/22 2 stage MTD snowthrower and from

your shear pin(s) are broken on that side they will look o.k. but are snapped off inside drive them out with a large nail or center-punch,don't use a regular bolt to replace the shear pin as they will fit,because if it gets plugged again the gearbox will be your next expensive shear pin to replace

I have a toro 826 snowblower and i cant get the thing to start there is no primmer bulb i dont know if the choke lever goes down to start?


https://www.toro.com/en/homeowner/snow-blowers/power-max-826-oe-37772

Click on parts and manuals then select the year that it was made and then you can download the operators manual.
The most common cause of failure to start is bad gasoline, Gasoline cannot be left in the fuel tank without a stabilizer added to it. It goes bad after about 1 month.

I'm not asking about a leaf blower It's a toro snowthrower model # 38600. what's the proper way to remove and replace the impeller blades?


You have to disassemble the entire front of the snow blower. This means removing the snow shroud, auger bits and then getting to the impeller blades. I did it once and it took me about 1 1/2 hrs to complete.

Auger clutch lever disengages even though drive clutch lever is squeezed


On mine (Honda HS55) it turned out to be gummy old grease on the shaft and the lever that are supposed to lock the auger lever down. The spring couldn't overpower the sticky old grease. If nudged or given enough time, it would slowly turn and lock, but not instantaneously, as it should.
10 mm wrench to remove the nut (bottom left) and bolt (under handle) holding on the metal cover.
Once cover was off I could see the locking lever, spring, and the shaft that had the gummy grease on it.
The third photo shows the locking lever as it should be engaged. I had to push it to engage it, due to the spring not being strong enough for the gummy grease on the shaft.
There are flat sides on the shaft, behind the threads for the nut that has already been removed. Use a wrench on those to turn the shaft out. Disassemble. Clean. Oil. Reassemble. Works great now.
Another possibility is that your locking lever or spring are broken.

How to adjust the Toro 826 snow thrower


Belts will have spring tension on the idler pulleys.
Both traction and auger control cables will also have cable length adjustments to cause the travel of levers or idler pulleys to tighten belts. Adjustments are commonly located under the control panel/levers.
