    Snow in the northeast

    Hi Everybody,

    It's been quite awhile since I've been on. Hope everyone is staying safe with the newest storm that has hit New England today. It started snowing here in Hartford, CT a little over an hour ago & we've got about an inch on the ground. Calling for anywhere between 8-14" by the time it's done

    You broke a shear pin. Its a "pin" that connects the snowblower auger to the shaft. When it breaks, the shaft spins....the auger doesn't.

    It's designed to do that...it protects the engine and drive train from severe damage in the event you hit something (curb, ice). A cheap, 5 minute fix. Buy a bunch and keep them on hand.

    I bought the snowblower at Sears,will they have the shear pins? I guess they will be able to show me how they go on.
    Thanks Rob.

    Mine is Sears also....unfortunately, there is no standard size. Make sure you take your model number, or, even better, your owner's manual to the store. A couple of years ago the local store didn't have the right one for me so I had to mail order.

    If you can't find your owner's manual, try on-line.

    They're very easy to install. Good luck.

    PS...my snowblower came with two spare shear pins, they were in a little black plastic box mounted on the body of the snowblower. It's worth looking!
