Snowthrower


I have a Wizard 27' that runs but won't go forward or throw snow-goes in reverse. Blades try to turn but won't. Help...

A 27 ft. snow thrower? Wow!

I've never seen a snowthrower throw snow going in reverse.

Have someone run the machine while you're peering from the front.

As the previous poster said, if the auger does not spin, then it could be broken shear pins.

If the auger does spin, then you could be having issues with the differential, which spins the impeller blade (2nd stage).
