Snowblower seems weak for a 5HP

I have an Ariens SS522E 5HPSnowblower. It runs great but doesn't throw snow very well. It only throws the snow about two ft and that's powder, forget about the heavier snow.
it seems like maybe a belt problem or a throttle problem. Should this blower throttle up automatically when it hits snow? It seems to stay at an idle.

    do you have a throttle control on the snowblower, have you checked the belts and chain if equipped?

Check to see if there any surface rust inside the auger assembly. This will cause this problem. Also, you try a silicone spray on a painted surface.

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.

Ariens snowblower impeller not throwing snow


Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.

Looks to me like your second stage is not working. If the auger is turning fine, look and see if the secondary thrower is turning. Probably a shear bold on one or the other is broken. Easy fix, but do not put your hands in there when the machine is running!

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.
