Sounds like you may have broken the safety pins in the drive wheels.

I have a yardworks snowblower however the wheels stopped working


Many of these units are chain driven devices since belts will shrink/slip/crack in the cold wet environment. For that reason, many manufacturers will use roll pins on the axle shaft of the drive wheels and on the driven shaft of the auger. If they get jammed for any reason, rather than break the chain or damage the engine, the roll pin will shear off. Then you simply must replace the roll pin to regain normal operation. See image of roll pin.

What causes drive to engage all the time on my yardworks snowblower


On some of the belt drives there is actually a double spring. There is the heavy spring that engages the motor to the blower AND there is another that pulls the opposite way. So when you belt is disengaged there is actually a spring that holds it off the pulley and Idler wheel. I just had that same spring break and it did just what yours is. Just one idea, there is an adjustment in the linkage- there are different holes to lengthen or shorten the linkage shaft, you might only have to take a little tension off the spring. Best of luck!

Snowblower stuck in gear


The issue here is likely related to the "linkage". Linkage is the parts (often a cable or metal rods) that connect the shifter to the actual part(s) inside the snowblower that need to physically move to change speed and direction of the machine.

You'll need to carefully inspect the entire linkage to locate missing or worn cotter pins, bolts, etc. You may need to open the underside on the snowblower to inspect and access the entire linkage. These are typical parts that are used to keep the linkage connected to the shift handle and internal wheel assembly. The linkage isn't usually complex - often a pin or threaded portion that passes thru a hole in an assembly - that is held in place with a cotter pin, bolt, etc. Simply move the shifter so that the linkage can be secured properly and you should be "good to go".

Good luck!

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.

My troy-bilt 8.5 horse 26 inch wide snowblower wont move anymore.


Take the belt cover off that covers the drive pulley on the engine. You should only have to loosen two bolts. Inspect the belt to see what it looks like. I am not sure if it drives a gear box or if it turns a friction wheel that drives the wheels. If the belt looks good check for shear bolts that might have sheared off and replace them.

Snowblower drive will stop unexpectly when snowblowing


Mine was doing the same thing and I found that if I put it in reverse for a little while it would be ok again for a short time. I found also that it did this more often when the snow was heavy and wet which makes me think that the rubber drive wheel is getting wet and slipping. If you've brought it in to a shop and they've said that nothing could be found wrong, then it must be something that goes away by the time you get it there - water (I'm guessing).
