1. Remove the belt cover with a socket wrench. Slide the belt cover off and set it aside.
2. Remove the two belt cover stud bolts with a socket wrench to get to the auger belt guide. 3. Remove the belt guide with a socket wrench.
4. Push down on the belt tensioner pulley with your hand. Remove the old belt and set it aside.
5. Install the new belt and release the belt tensioner pulley to tighten the belt.
6. Re-install the belt guide with a socket wrench and tighten the bolt.
7. Re-install the two belt cover stud bolts and tighten with a socket wrench.
8. Re-install the belt cover and secure it with the cover bolts. Tighten the bolts with a socket wrench.

I pulled the following from a snaper model similar to yours.
The snowthrower has two drive belts, one for the traction
drive-which transmits engine power to the wheels, and
a second for the auger drive-which transmits engine
power to the auger mechanism.
Each of these drive belts are of special construction and
should be replaced only with genuine replacement belts
which match the original equipment belts. These are
available from your dealer.
Traction Drive Belt Replacement
I pulled the following from a snapper model similar to yours. Believe it should help.

1. Disconnect spark plug wire and fasten it away from
the spark plug.
2. Remove belt cover. (Located in back of the discharge shute).
3. Pull the traction drive belt idler pulley arm (See
Figure 24) away from the belt to relieve tension, and
slide the belt off the engine pulley.
4. Slip the belt off from around the traction pulley (See
Figure 29) and pull the belt out of the unit between
the auger pulley and the traction pulley (the lower
cover need not be removed for this step).
5. Reverse the procedure to install the new belt. Be
sure there are no twists in the belt, and that the belt is
properly seated in the pulley grooves.
6. Replace the belt cover.
7. Start the unit, and check the traction drive for proper
operation. See "Traction Clutch Cable Adjustment"
for adjustment procedures.

There are also several videos on YouTube on changing snowthrowr belts. (Didn't see one for your blower, but most similar and should provide a good starting reference).

24 in aries snow blower throws snow for maybe 2 ft any ideas


Since your snowblower is a two stage all metal unit the only thing keeping the snow from shooting out is either a worn out drive belt or a weak engine. The belt is the easy thing to change. Buy a new drive belt too since it is a good time to change both at the same time. The unit actually breaks into two parts at the back of the auger housing to expose the belts for changing. A local shop can do this service for 100-$200 bucks along with an oil change and chassis lube. Not too bad since this will keep your unit running reliably for years to come.

Snow blower problem. my snapper 5horse snow blower doesn't throw snow like it used to. even stalls out when it used to go though 6" of snow easily. any suggestions?


Sounds like the high speed adjustment is out. You didn't say what engine is on it. If it has a bowl type carb it is on the bottom. Tank mount carb its on the side. Turn it out half turn and see if that helps ya it should. I am assuming the govenor is working. Hope this does it for ya.
