bjenner, Welcome to GTTalk, glad you stopped in. How about more information about what WAS working about the snowblower? Do you know if the belt started slipping at the PTO? Did the belt run good, but maybe the auger didn't?

I see that your in Merritt B.C. when you say it won't throw the snow I can probably say that the snow was way to heavy and wet.Isn't that usually the type of snow you get in Merritt ?? Seeing that it's just single stage it's going to plug up very easy.A two stage snowblower in heavy wet snow will plug up also if your feeding the blower to fast.One thing about the single stage is that your going to have to keep your RPMs up if the snow is wet and go into it slowly.If its to wet and heavy its just not going to blow the snow. Even being in Manitoba if the snow is wet/heavy the blowers do like to plug up.

If it was wet and heavy it won't really blow. If you spray auger, shoot and inside of housing with, liquid film, wd40 etc it will help.

Also, not that I know from personal experience, don't keep your blower in a heated garage and then just start blowing snow. Warm metal, snow, freezing temps mean snow that turns to water and back to ice.

Good advise, on letting the blower climatize before using it, and spraying the inside of the
chute. I find windshield washer fluid sprayed in there, works pretty good.

Yea, I mean, it's a pretty simple set up... It's all chain drive from the pulley jack-shaft, so I am guessing belt tension, or really wet snow!
