Re: Pto/clutch Adjustment
If your Snocaster is bogging down and stopping the engine, then it isn't the fault of the clutch.
If you told me that your engine was running at full throttle but the Snocaster was stopping on you when you waded into the snow, then that would be different. Your clutch would be slipping and in need of an adjustment or new disc.
Keeping every area of your Snocaster painted is important. Rusty augers, rusty housings, rust chutes all slow down the discharge of snow and take hp away from the engine. In wet, heavy snow this problem really shows up.
Augers that have been moved forward to take up stretch and wear in the drive chain also underperform. Put a new chain on and move the auger back to the OEM position.
If your clutch is somewhat hard to push forward and then snaps in as it reaches the end of the lever travel, then it's adjusted just fine.
