Question about Agri-Fab Agri - Fab Snow Blower - 42"

Open Question

I have a MTD 2 stage snowblower. How to I adjust the Auger cable? Also, just finished snowblowing and the engine lost its power. It stays running until I try to snow blow and soon as it takes in the snow it does not have enough power to shoot then it stails out. What do you think?

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

You are not getting fuel to the carb take it off and give it a good cleaning, paying attention to the small orifices. Many times on older units the float bowl screw on the carb has an orifice that is always the culprit give it a try . Good Luck

Hello Tal.... when it just stops working, check the belt or belts. Many snow blowers have two belt. Go to searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model number and you will get diagrams of this machine along with parts numbers. Be sure to use a craftsman belt for the repair. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

It sounds like its not getting enough fuel. Check for restriction in fuel line, clogged fuel filter or malfunctioning carburetor. Your choke could also be out of adjustment

MTD 8/26 snowblower


Either there is a belt or a chain off, or the linkage became disconnected or there is a pin sheared. Take one of the three. If you have power spinning like you said then those are your choices! Best of luck to you. Hope you beat the weather!

Oil for a snapper snowblower 16223


I found the manual for you snowblower, and it's a two stage snowblower, so I am assuming you need two stage oil. Ultimately you need to get that information from the engine manual, and you haven't provided the engine information in you posting. This is the link for the blower manual:

Not sure how to reroute auger cable on craftsman snowblower


I assume the cable to the auger was removed and needs to be re-installed.
There should be a clamp that the cable ran thru, then attaches to the auger
control. Find this clamp on your snowblower, and route it thru this clamp
then attach it to your auger control.

Installed auger belt on my 421 snowblower and the auger turns all the time.


Sounds like the auger belt is too tight. What belt did you use? Toro 37-9080? If you used the right belt, there is an adjustment on the cable going to the pulley that pulls the belt. Follow the cable to where it goes into the side of the machine. There should be an adjuster. Loosen the adjuster so that there is enough free play so the auger does not turn when the handle is not pulled.

Snowblower doesn't throw the snow very far, and every time I stop it, it takes a while for the auger to start turning fast enough to blow the snow. Feels like the torque isn't there. This is a Husqvarna...


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn.
If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belts.
Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts.
The belt closest to the blower assembly drives the auger/blower and the belt closest to the engine drives the transmission.
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the blower belt.
You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced.
On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely.
You can get parts for you Craftsman and most Husqvarana, MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com. You can also get parts through jackssmallengines.com or your local dealer.
If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines take it to your local dealer. They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit.
Feel free to ask any other questions to troubleshoot this problem farther. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.
