Craftsman Snow Blower - Drive problem
During our big storm last week i noticed I started to do all of the work, pushing my snowblower to remove the snow as the drive seemed to have stopped working. Afew day later I just checked to see if there were any obvious things i could see but wrong but everything seems fine. What happens is when i put it in a gear, clamp down the traction drive bar most of the time it actually does turn the wheels, although rather timidly. I can easily hold the snowblower back so it doesn't seem to have the force it once did. Also most of the time, when I put it in a certain gear, it might not move at all at first, then catch, then not move again. We have another storm coming Friday and I was hoping someone could help me identify the issue so I can fix it by then.
It is a craftsman, 9hp, bought it in 2000.
