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

Check Belts as well as the shear pins in your pulleys .if the pulley turns but does not drive I suspect a shear pin has sheared off and needs replacing. The shear pin is inside the pulley and you need to remove the pulley to get to the pin.

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.

Auger on craftsman snowblower is very slow.how do i adjust idle


Not sure how long you have owned this machine but the auger does not turn fast. It 's job is to chop up the snow and push it back to the impeller. The impeller is the round plate in back of the augers that actually throws the snow out the chute. That turns fast. Check to be sure the shear pins are not broken. Shut the machine off. Wait for the augers to stop spinning and then try to turn the augers by hand. If they spin on the shaft then the shear pins are broken-replace them by using original equipment shear pins.

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:

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!

Last winter my blower blades grabbed a rope and stopped turning, the blower will fire up, but the blades wont turn


If the blower (impeller) turns and the auger doesn't there is a 90% chance you broke the shear bolts that protect the auger gear box.

Look at your auger and you will find the bolts shown at the arrows in this picture are missing. Some snowthrowers will have two bolts and others like the new Craftsman will have four.
You can get new ones at your local mower repair shop, your local Sears mall store, or online at sears.com.
Use shear pins or shear bolts not regular bolts. The shear bolts are designed to break off so you don't tear out the front gear box.

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 an ariens 824 snowblower that needs shear pins. How to replace. Where to purchase them. I live in Hyannis Ma. Nick


Most times when a shear bolt/pin shears, the outer ends fall off into the snow, the inner part of the bolt stays inside the auger shaft. You must rotate the auger/ribon to find the hole in the shaft that has the bolt left in, and then with a drift punch, drive the bolt out of the shaft. Depending on the amount of rust, rotation may be difficult. Depending on the shear bolt, finding the internal broken part may also be difficult, but you should see a 'fresh metal shear' of the broken bolt. You can purchase them on eBay or your local lawn & garden dealer should be able to get them.

Auger turning slow. Auger turns initially but auger stops turning when it hits the snow. Shear pins look ok, belt looks ok. Shear pins look intact. Could they be broken inside where I can't see.
