I have a toro 526, the drive train will not operate the wheels, chains intact what could be the issue


The friction disc could be worn out.

First, an explanation of how the friction disc wheel works

Should you end up needing to replace one, see the posted video below which refers to replacing one on an older Ariens. I know the information won't translate identically, but the friction disc operation of most 2-stage snow blower are pretty similar so it may help you still.

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

Ariens SnowBlower I recently blew a belt on my Ariens 5.5 hp snowblower Mdl# 932140 I replaced it and it blows snow and when i put it in 1st gear the machine goes into reverse. All my other gears work...


Hi dwva, I think you have the belt on properly seeing the other gears work fine. The difference between 1st and reverse can be as little as 1 half in on the drive wheel. It depends on which side of center is the friction wheel riding. Remove bottom pan with the machine in 2nd or 3rd gear notice which side of center is the friction wheel riding. (the friction wheel is the one with a rubber outer ring). Now put it in 1st, is it on the same side of center? There is an adjustment on that linkage, adjust so in 1st is on the same side of center. Happy New Year, hope that helps.

I need the owners manual for an Ariens Snowblower ST724 and I can't find it. My snow blower has trouble in the littlest amount of snow it won't go forward in number one gear, any ideas?


You might need to change the friction wheel. I looked up your model number and the part number for the friction disc is PN# 240394. You might be able to get the part locally from your small engine repair shop.
To replace the disc you will need to drain the oil and place some plastic over the gas tank and put the cap on so no gas will leak out. Then you will have tip the blower forward so it is setting on the augers.
Then remove the bolts on the access cover on underside . Once removed you will have to remove the wheel and see what else you will to remove. It is pretty easy to figure it out. If you have to take out the rod that moves the friction disc from side to side (gear shift rod) MAKE SURE IT IS IN PLACE AND WORKING BEFORE REASSEMBLING. Put in fresh oil and remove plastic. It should be up and running.

Good luck let me know if this helps.

Will not engage foward or back .


Remove the cover on the very bottom under the engine, you will see a wheel with rubber ( the friction wheel ) on it, when you squeeze the handle for the drive you should not be able to turn that wheel by hand. First check to see if there is enough rubber extending from the metal disk it is attached to, if there is then it might be just adjusting the drive cable till the drive disc grabs the friction wheel sufficiently. If there isn't enough rubber or the rubber is chewed up you may need to replace the rubber part ( if the disc has screws in it to be able to seperate) or replace the whole wheel ( if the disc doesn't come apart ).

Arien524 when clutch is engaged the wheels donot pull right away


Sorry I should have posted this as a solution.
You might want to check the friction wheel to see if it is either worn down and needs adjusting or if it needs replacing.It could very well be just an adjusting. The friction wheel is located inside the panel under the engine. When looking inside the panel and you pull on the handle to engage the wheels you will see the round disc pull towards the friction wheel if it doesn't pull in tight enough you will have problems.Also check the belt and the idler pulley for the drive make sure the idler pulley moves easy and that it puts enough tension on the belt.
