1)try replacing them with a heavy duty "roll-pin"
these are available from auto parts stores.
two types are available.
first is the "single-roll",second is the"multi-rolled"with many layers to it.
try both they're cheap.
2)try not hitting things with the blades
3)dont force the machine in heavy wet ,or frozen icy packed snow.

Hi, I will try to help you with a few suggestions that could be the problem. I have found that sometimes the shear pins break, but the ends of the pin do not fall out. Have you tried to remove them by hammering them off? Another possibility, if that is not the problem, then the auger gearbox might have a damaged gear or maybe just a broken or loose bolt or pin. If that is the problem then you need to take it apart. If that is not the problem you can check the lube level by removing the plug on the outside of the gear box and check for lubrication. Whatever type of lube that machine uses should be even with the bottom of the plug hole. If it is low or there is none at all add what is recommended in your owners manual. That is just preventive maintenance. But I think it might be just the ends of the pins not having fallen out. If that is the problem then you will need a punch to remove the center of the pin that is on the auger shaft. Hope this is helpful a bit, at least it is something to check out. Best regards and good luck.
