I need to tighten the belts on my Atlas Snow thrower


There should be an idler pulley with some sort of adjustment. Usually it is just a pulley with a bolt through the center that goes through a slotted hole on the frame. If you loosen the bolt and move the pulley toward the belt, it will increase the tension on the belt. If the bolt is already to the end of the slotted whole and cannot be moved further in, then the belt is worn and stretched and needs to be replaced. Keep in mind that there are other idler adjustment mechanisms that might be used. This is just the most common.

Snow thrower not throwing snow far enough


Your belt is probably slipping Is your snowblower a single stage or dual stage?
If it is single stage, there are normally multiple holes that you can put the engagement cable into on the lever. If so, move the cable to a hole that is further away, so the lever pulls the cable further. If it's already in the furthest hole, it's time for a new belt.
If you have a dual stage blower, the adjustment is usually made at the idler pulley, found under the belt cover.

I am looking for belt size for HABAN 24577 snowthrower to Murray 18hp lawn tractor. Book doesn't provide size info.


I have a Haban Model No. 24577A 42" front mounted snow thrower attachment, which I have mounted to a Murray lawn tractor. I needed to replace the lower drive belt, labeled: V-Belt-Long Part No. 23948 in my Haban manual. I had found it next to impossible to find a replacement belt part number or cross-reference to other brands. I tried many belt sizes and lengths to no avail - belts broke quickly and suddenly after 1 or two uses.

While researching Haban on the internet, I realized that they also supplied snow thrower attachments for Sears Craftsman lawn tractors. A thought hit me at one point in my research... that Haban probably sold the same snow thrower chassis to all manufacturers, but only with different interfaces to the tractors. So I ordered up a belt for a different Haban model that was supplied to Sears, and I think that my intuition was correct!! I have found a belt that works with my Haban Model No. 24577A snow thrower.

The belt that appears to be a direct replacement for the Haban belt part number 23948 (long) is as follows: Kevlar Blue V-Belt 5/8" x 87". It is sold by several suppliers under various part numbers, priced at $20 to $30.

I hope this helps you.

I have a ariens 24 "sno tech it will not throw


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 belt closest to the blower assembly. This is the blower drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower)
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the 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)
You can get parts (the new belt) through your local Ariens dealer or jackssmallengines.com

CRAFTSMAN SNOW THROWER DRIVE WHEELS WILL NOT MOVE - RAISE REAR UP AND WHEELS DO - AUGER WORKS IT JUST WON'T MOVE


well if it is a walk behind style it could be the drive is out of adjustment, also craftsman were famous for the cable mounts bending and that will throw them out of adjustment. follow the traction drive linkage down to the base of the blowe and there should be an adjustment, or it will be under the belt gaurd or even on the handle on some.

My ariens 824 wont go forward or reverse. snow thrower still works. wheels start to move a bit then stop


I would check your traction drive disc for wear or shredding.With low or little fuel in tank you can safely grab handle bars and lift machine up on it's auger housing.Then remove shield from under machine and inspect metal disc with rubber around it.If rubber looks worn you can get a replacement traction drive disc easily from most small engine repair shop's or go online and look for your nearest Ariens dealer.
