SnowBlower Mount Rod

Recommended Posts

Hi my blower mount rod broke. It's 5/8 rod but not sure what rod to replace it with. Would like to go with a threaded rod so I don't have to weld it back on. Will 304 or 316 SS rod work? In the picture the rod is circled in blue.

Stainless should work.

 

Threaded rod is weaker and will wear your front hitch.

 

You could use solid rod and thread the ends or use a long bolt if you can find one.

 

Best bet however is to find someone who can just weld it properly.

I don't know if they make them quite that long but perhaps a hitch pin? Those would be made out of hardened steel.

If not, the big box stores often have round steel in stock to do as @gwest_ca Suggested above.

I would use 4130 available from McMaster-Carr, if you are going to weld it in.
