Unusual part to break on my snowblower?
#1   Jan 19, 2020 3:54 pm
I've had my 2008 Craftsman (Husky) 14.5 Torque Rating B&S Snow Blower 881063 (881060) since new. I had a failure today I don't really see reported. Other than that been a good reliable blower. The control rod (16) for the augur activation snapped off right about at rod level just above where the rod mounts to 66. Cheap part but on order.... at least it broke toward end of job. I guess just metal fatigue after more than a decade of moderate use.

I might have to do something with mine just to play with snow blower. It's been a snow drought out west these last two winters. My engine is still fogged from last winter. You guys out east have been getting all the action.

Tweaks to blowers will allow for 30+ foot capabilities. I put the Husqvarna high speed impeller pulley kit on my Craftsman and I can easily toss 30+ feet. Another option is this kit from Clarence`s Small Engines. I have this one but still have not added it. Now that warranty has expired I plan to add it.

I use my son's skateboard with my Honda HS928TAS. I lift the handle bars to elevate the tracks while shoving the skateboard underneath the middle with my foot. Then let it down. It becomes wobbly and unstable but it's easily controlled and maneuvered. Can be rested a bit off-kilter with one track or the auger housing on the ground. I remove the skateboard when I have the machine where I want it. This is a good approach because it works with something many people already have in the garage, and you don't have to buy or make anything. PS - my first post on this b-board.

Snowmobile dollies would work good as well.
