Snapper Snow Blower

KCJoeFebruary 21, 2013

I have a Snapper L.E. SINGLE STAGE SMALL FRAME SNOW THROWER SERIES 0 that a friend gave me when he moved. It runs well. The auger rotates fine but does not throw much snow out the chute. What it does throw only throws out next to the blower. Most of the snow comes out of the back of the blower at the bottom. Any ideas. Since I got it for free I am open to spending some money to fix it.

Not familiar with that machine, but I do recall the single stage units weren't real good at throwing heavy wet snow, dry powder they were "OK." Do you have the dept adjustment low enough, should be clean behind the machine. Are you running at WOT (WIde Open Throttle) and could a belt be slipping. Just obvious things I'd look for.

Good luck,

Ev
