    Rubber Chains ?? Never Seen Nor Heard Of Them. Do They Grip Well And Who Sells Them ? My New To Me 2 - Stage Helped Me Get My Driveway Done In Less Than 10 Minutes, So I Went Over And Helped Out Some Neighbors, Just To Play Some More.

    Gotta Love Those Onans !!! I Love The Sound Of Mine While Snow Blowing, It Sounds So Mean Lol. Nice AG Tires, They Look Wider Than 10.50 Though In The Picture.

    We Got About 6 - 8"'s Of Good Granular Snow And You Guys Are Right, The Work We Put Into These Snow Blowers Pays Off. This Thing Is A Bear, Wish My Yard Was Larger Now Lol. So Far, Everything Went Great, I'll Double Check The Chain Tension And Cotters Pins, Etc.. In The Am. Took Tomorrow Off To Do Some Final Clean Up , We Got Rain Coming This Week And Then Back To Cold Weather Again. Welcome To New Hampshire, Lol ! One More Thing I Wanted To Share With You Guys, Is That If You Have A Fairly Level Driveway That You Really Don't Want To Run Chains On, Switch To 4 Ply ATV Tires, They Work Great As An Alternative To The Hard Lawn Tires.

    I Also Installed Grease Fittings On My Augers ( 2 On Each One ) And Filled Them Full Of Grease. Took About 1 1/2 Tubes Per Side. During Greasing Though Make Sure You Spin The Auger Over To Help Spread It Out On The Ends And Throughout. When I Pulled Mine Apart Originally, The Shaft Was All Rusted And Pitted From Water Getting In There. Hopefully This Will Help Keep Everything Lubed And Water Free. They're Saying 10" -18" By Tomorrow Night, Can't Wait. Still Got Some Little Things To Finish Up Today, Like Adding A Little More Rear Weight For One.

    I Had Just Enough Time After Finishing Up Putting The Chain And Covers On And Greasing / Oiling Everything Up To Spin Her Over Today And Stick It In A Snow Bank. Holy Crap Does This Thing Throw Even Further Than Anticipated And I Didn't Mount The Rubbers On The Auger Fins Yet LOL. Tomorrow They're Saying 1-3" 's, But They're Watching A Big One For Sunday. Tomorrow I Still Have Some Loose Ends To Tend To Like The Shute Control Rod, Putting The Rubbers On, Etc... I'll Post More Pictures Over The Weekend. Was Anyone Able To Get WHX21 His Shute Crank Support Measurements ?

    Yes It Was You LOL And Thank You For Sharing That Photo. Mine's Not As Pretty, But Come Spring Time I'll Go Through And Fix / Replace Things To Make What Didn't Work Well This Winter, Hopefully Better Next Year. Got The Scraper Blade Mounted Along With The Skid Shoes. Tomorrow I'll Be Attaching The Two Components Together And Start Aligning The Idler Sprocket Up. If All Goes Well Hopefully Friday She'll Be Ready To Spin Over For The First Time In Several Years. As Far As The Question About The End Caps And Bearing Spacers, My Neighbor Down The Street Is An At Home Machinist, I Gave Him The Bearings I Had Ordered Off eBay And Told Him What I Needed Done. He Also Made Me A Brand New Auger Shaft, The Old One Had Broke At A Shear Pin Hole And For An Hour ( If That LOL ! ) And The Cost Of The Rod I think He Charged Me A $100. The Stock He Used Was $50 Alone. He Does Great Work. Also, He Made Me Stronger Steering Linkages As Mine Were Showing Their Age, Kinda Like The Owner. WHX21 Are You Currently Serving In The Navy ?? I Served From 1989 -1993 On The U.S.S. Nasville LPD -13. She's In The Moth Ball Fleet Now. Anyways Thank You For Your Service !!

    I Installed My Center Brace Today, Don't Remember Who's Idea This Was, But Thank You For Posting Pictures. I was Thinking The Same Thing, That's Pretty Wide Without A Brace To Help Hold All The Torque. Here's A Few More Pictures Taking Today After The New Install. Tomorrow I'll Finish The Scraper Blade And Skid Shoes Install, Then Onto The Idler Sprocket Install On Thursday.

    44" 2-Stage Assembly Questions

    It Was More Of A Project Than I expected, But I wouldn't Have Been Able To Do This Without Everyone's Help On This Site, You Guys Are Truly Amazing. Seeing These Blowers In Action On You Tube, I knew I needed To Get Me One, Didn't Know I would Have To Bring One Back From The Dead, But That Just Seems To Make It That Much Better. Now I'm Looking For Another To Rebuild For A Spare. I Do Have A Quick Question Though. The Lift Assist Springs, Are They The Same ? The Parts Diagram Has Them Listed As Separate Numbers So I'm Not Sure What Goes Up Under The Tractor. WHX21, Yours Looks Like The One I Currently Have Mounted Out Front. Do I have That One Wrong ? I Bought My Idler Sprocket Today At TSC It's A #40 / 17 Tooth, I Heard It's A Little Big, But Figured I'd Try It Anyways. Thanks Again For The Help And Support.

    Hey Guys, Just Wanted To Send An Update On The Assembly Process. After A Long Unforgiving Hunting Season And Holidays, I know Will Have The Time This Weekend To Start The Assembly. I Just Ordered The Rubber Paddle Extensions, Which I Saw In Another Thread. Tomorrow I'll Run Into TSC And Grab A Few Pounds Of Grade 5 Bolts, Nuts, Etc.. ( Still Looking For That Chain Idler ! ). So Hopefully Saturday Am I Can Start Making This Pile Of Metal On My Garage Floor, Bench, Shelves, Etc... LOL Look Like A Snow Blower Again. I'll Post Photos As I Go If Anyone Has Any Suggestions On Making Things Work Easier Or Go Smoother, Please Feel Free To Post Your Advice Right Here. Thanks Again For The Guys Who Already Posted With Their Help, I Do Appreciate It.

    You sent more than I need, Thank you very much for taking the time and with great detail, I really appreciate it. Now I can make one this weekend and from the sounds of it, I should have the spacers by the end of the week so I can start assembling / installing the auger parts back together as well.

    WOW !!! Thank You For Such A Detailed Drawing, I really Appreciate It. I'll Be Making One This Weekend. I'll be dropping off the bearings today to have parts machined up so I can install my auger hopefully this weekend as well. then I can work on the paddle extensions before I place the shute back on. I'm finding that the small stuff, ie: nuts, bolts, washers, pins etc.. add up fast. lol.
