    Thanks to you donyboy, I was able to replace my augur gearbox assembly myself and saving $200 on a mechanic doing it. Thanks!

    @snowman6006 nice to hear u were able to do it by yourself, make sure to subscribe if you haven’t done so

    Thank you for this video. I have a different machine (Powerland) but found that the machines are not all that different. I was able to purchase a complete gear box assembly (gear box and shaft) from the company along with a couple of other small parts for under $90! I placed my laptop on my bench in my shed and followed your instructions to the end. It was so easy. Thank you. I plan on watching your other vids to learn more.

    donyboy “Thanks” Great hands on repair videos ! I’m a retired refinery machinist supervisor and have done a lot of training. I wish i had your help, because your work practices are excellent ! Do you know where i can find info.on a Snow Chief 8hp-28″ Tecumseh Ser.433337 68. Need impeller bearing, NLA ?

  5. donyboy73 says:

    @Boysterload make sure the bolts are off on the sides of the housing that hold the auger bushings. u may have to heat it up. u can also take the flange off and use a jaw puller to take the bearing off

  6. Boysterload says:

    You are AMAZING! I needed to perform this exact repair after the auger snagged a shag carpet in my garage. Whoops! But I am stuck at the point when you knock the shaft out of the housing at 5:20. I’ve bashed the heck out of the thing with a block of wood and hammer just like you show, but it wont budge. A few squirts of PB Blaster and I’ll try it again tomorrow. Any ideas? Thanks again for posting this!!!!!!

    Would you happen to know why a snow blower would climb up on the snow instead of scraping from the bottom. I have a two stage 5HP ariens walk behind blower.

  8. donyboy73 says:

    @halibutty it’s pretty hard to free it up from the front so it’s best to follow this precedure

  9. halibutty says:

    I have an old mtd with a bent up auger, is this the same procedure you would use to replace the auger or can it be done by freeing the shaft from that impellor from the front of the machine? thanks for the great vids

  10. donyboy73 says:

    @Behr3454 it’s pretty well a the same principle

  11. Behr3454 says:

    I’m going to try to fix my stripped auger gears in about a week. Wish I had you looking over my shoulder, but your video will be invaluable in my efforts!! Thanks man!! (BTW, I’ll be working on a craftsman, I suppose their pretty similar in repairing them, you think?)

  12. donyboy73 says:

    tough job to get them out

  13. MrBeuthling says:

    Thank You ! – My blower just eight another newspaper – any tricks for jammed newspapers
