Toro snowblower 828 1st gear is reverse

morfredJanuary 22, 2010

I have a Toro 828 and MOST times when I put the snowblower in 1st gear it goes in reverse. I am not that handy but I figure that it must have to do with an adjustment with the shift lever. (By the way- it came back this way last year from a "PROFESSIONAL" tune-up.) Any help is appreciated directing me to a fix for this.

I would suggest grabbing an owners manual from -they're free and they have the adjustments in them. Enter through the parts area. It may just be the gate adjustment at the top or the rod got bent during transportation back.
