Snow Blower under load
 
The blower seems to run great until it starts to throw snow. It bogs dow.n and stops after starting to throw snow. It will start up right after it stops but will stop again after going into snow

You did drain the oil and gas from last year right? You pulled, cleaned and regapped, or watched as your new $6 spark plug was gapped at the shop right?

Trust me. Drain and change the fuel and oil. One or both has water from condensation. Buy a new spark plug and a gap tool. Willing to bet real money since the things starts, you will be good to go and up to blowing snow all over neighboring yards.

And never run ethanol or blend with it, even though we subsidize the corn industry, through small engines. Absolutely deadly to little machines.

Maybe the belt is slipping.
