SOURCE: Auger turning slow. Auger turns initially but

sure sounds like a shear pin, usually one end will be missing if it is broke. They are simple to replace but get one that is rated for your machine to avoid damage. Can you turn it freely without the engine running?? if so, it's the shear pin

Why does the "shear pin" on the wheel axle keep shearing off?


Its suppost to do this to keep from damageing the transmission and gear reduction case on the unit
You must be hitting things while snowblowing that go beyond limit of the brakeing point of the pin .
Chunks of ice will case problems with smalled low powered mechines bigger ones to but it jambs them but the parts are bigger so the pins can be stronger .
Keep the same pins that are ment for mechine and use it carefully

I have a Yamaha ys 626 snowblower - how do I fix a non moving auger?


Most snow blowers have a "shear pin", (or roll pin) that links the auger to the drive shaft. It is there in case you strike something hard with the auger. The shear pin will break and protect the auger, the engine, and the operator. The shear pin can be purchased anyplace that services snow blowers, and it can be replaced by the owner.

Just bought a used cub cadet 528 see. Upon inspection noticed bolts not shear pins in the auger. Is this a problem?


The regular bolts may be a little stronger than shear pins. The previous owner may have had them shear off often so opted for the bolts to make them last longer. Get some of the original shear pins to get back the manufactures specs for safety.

How to change shear pin


With the motor OFF, the shaft shouldn't rotate, so you should be able to rotate the auger by hand until the holes line up.

Mtd yardmachine snow blower 305 cc auger wont turn


This is a fairly frequent problem that is easily fixed. What happened was the snowblower's auger was either overloaded or got jammed (ice, debris - something other than snow). Rather than twist, damage or break the auger itself, an inexpensive part called a "shear pin" is designed to fail. A shear pin employed between the auger sleeve and drive shaft that is inside the sleeve. You may have broken one if one side of the auger spins) or both (if both sides of the auger spins). Purchase several replacements for your particular machine to have on hand. Do NOT replace s shear pin (or shear bolt) with a regular bolt under any circumstances! Check the video linked below on how to replace the shear pins. Good luck!

Auger does not engage on Ariens Model 924121 sno- Thro


first check shear pins in the auger ( try to turn big auger by hand, engine off)
then if they are good then try to turn impeller by hand, engine off
youll need to turn it a few times before the larger ones turn, but thats what you want
if they dont turn then you have sheared the gear box gears
be sure belts are good tooo

Swisher 27" snowblower front impellers turn free


Hi Craig,

Most snowblowers incorporate "shear pins" between the motor and auger. A shear pin looks similar to a nut and bolt or pin that couples the drive to the auger - but it designed to break or shear off to prevent damage to the auger or motor in the event of a jam or overload. They look like these:

12_21_2012_2_20_57_am.jpg

Only the shear pin recommended for your particular brand and model snowblower should be used. Under no circumstances should a regular bolt or other steel pin be used instead of a shear pin. Check your manual or consult with Swisher to determine the correct shear pin for your snow blower.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Husqvarna shear pins break within minutes


if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tines, the ground is the problem and you need to begin your first pass on a more shallow setting and progress to a deeper setting gradually. if we are speaking about the shear pins on the tires w/o engaging the tines then these should not be breaking and I recommend that the tiller be examined by an authorized dealer.

Broken shear pin in kitchenaid A9 Coffee Grinder


I was able to find 3/32 x 1/2 inch spring pins at a local hardware for 13 cents each. They may not last as long, but at the price I can replace as needed.

I also had to disassemble twice; I didn't notice that a portion of the old pin was wedged in the underside of the burr. When I put it back together the first time, the new pin rested on the old fragment and pressed the burrs too close together. On the coarsest possible setting, I got coffee powder!

Final note: The nut for the cap over the burrs is reverse-threaded...use a wrench on top, and a flat-blade screw driver in the slot at the bottom of the motor shaft.
