Honda HS928 tracked snowblower drive problem

flickrollFebruary 8, 2011

Hi all, my Honda HS928 tracked snow blower has finally, after about 9 years of trouble-free service lost all drive to the right hand track. If I lift the tracks off the ground the left side still turns.

Please can anyone suggest what the problem might be? I have heard that there is a pin that can shear off inside the transmission but if it is this wouldn't drive be lost to both tracks?

Could it be that the hydraulic fluid needs topping up? It has never been serviced other than engine oil. Any suggestions most welcome. Thanks.

Lack of drive to one side only cannot be anything in the hydrostatic transmission -- it has to be in the final drive.

There's a link below to the "master thread" where these problems are discussed, mostly with respect to wheeled machines. At the bottom of the thread there's a post with a link to a website with exploded views of the whole machine. With a little probing, you can find your machine on there -- I'm looking at it now.

It appears to me that on the tracked machines there are similar pins on both ends. Unlike my wheely (and possibly depending on serial number), these pins look like they're designed for replacement. Look at Item 14 (at least on the particular drawing I'm looking at) on the "Right Transmission Case" page. I'd start there.

Post when you've got it figured out, OK? Good luck.
