Auger belt on snow blower keeps coming off

The auger belt will not stay on the drive. After returning from the repair shop I was able to throw about 30 feet of snow and the belt came off and was destroyed. I replaced the belt and it stays on a few minutes when I engage light snow.

It did this last season and I ruined three belts. Any information will be appreciated.

Snow blower will not throw snow far


I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.

TRS21 cloggs in the chute


I have the exact same problem. Also it won't clog so easily if the snow is deeper because the auger moves more snow through (or if I run with it.) It seems to me that the auger should be as close as possible to the scraper bar without causing any friction. Do you think that distance adjustable, or would new paddles on the auger close the gap sufficiently?

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 toror ccr1000e and the auger stopped turning yesterday, is there an easy way to see what the problem is or is it best to just take it in for repair. thanks.


Well, There is nothing like a good repair shop to take care of a problem. I would recommend looking at the diagrams at a site like www.arcolawn.com and consider the belt, the idler pulley and the auger assy. Inspect the parts on the machine and order replacments right at the web site.
Good luck

please vote my fix up if you find it helpful

My toro snow blower runs good but it does spins


It sounds like the auger is not spinning. I recommend you look up your model at www.arcolawn.com and check that the parts look like the drawings. Check your belt, idler pulley and auger assy.
It is a simple system and won't take more than two hours to replace the bad parts.

good luck

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.

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
