I am looking at one right now to buy. The blower doesn't have the slide in mounting bracket that fits suburban model tractors on it right now. The guy said he remembers having one and is going to look for it. I am just wondering if the slide in mounting brackets are hard to find or if anybody knows where I could find one.They made 2 blowers for the Suburbans, which one do you have ?
I still feel bad it blew up... That was one of the nicest blowers I had come across and I used it the winter I gave it to you too.I have the smaller white version Suburban snowblower--it grenaded the last time I used it about a month ago--the chain came off the auger,jammed behind the drive sprocket on the gear box shaft,bent the shaft,took a chunk out of the gear box housing where the bearing behind the sprocket goes..
It might be un-repairable,and finding a good gearbox probably will be unlikely,because many of them failed in much the same manner,or are about to,if you can find a complete "working" gear box...not sure if I'll bother trying to resurect it..maybe if I come across a "donor" or parts for cheap or free,I wont invest much into it because snowblowers and I do not seem to get along too well,and I get wet heavy snow that clogs them right up most of the time..
Plows are much easier to fix,don't eat belts,and work no matter how wet the snow is..
