Why does the shearpin in the driveshaft break on a simplicity p1728e snowblower all the time


You're either working it too hard (heavy hard-packed snow) or picking up rocks. Better that you break a shear pin than that you damage a shaft or the engine! Shear pins are CHEAP compared to engines.

Hello, you need to check and see if the shear bolts have sheared and are not turning the auger. Or the bronze gear in the gear box has been chewed up and is stoping under load.

I have a new Troy Bilt Snowblower. My father ran over a large extension cord while blowing snow, which in turned wrapped the cord around the auger shaft ends. I can now only get one side of the auger to...


Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!

The engine starts but won't actually throw snow the wheel that turns to throw snow is not turning


There is probably a shear pin or bolt that has broken, providing all other belts and accessories are intact. Should be very simple to take the bolt out of the wheel where it attaches to the shaft. Just take it to a hardware store or an outdoor store that sells snowblowers.

How can I keep my 2 stage snowblower in high?


I will assume you are referring to the 2 stages in the front of the machine. The spiral auger rakes are the first stage, they are designed to collect the snow and feed it to the impeller. The impeller is the 2nd stage and is to throw the snow up the chute. The lower rakes in the front do nopt throw snow only collect it.
