Re: Snow blower drive belt


No make, model, or even a picture, not sure how anyone's going to be of much help.

Re: Snow blower drive belt


Do an internet search for an owners manual for it, use make, model, serial number.

This manual will help you numerous times in the future to maintain it.

Those springs probably hold a tensioner in place somewhere.

Re: Snow blower drive belt


If it's a hardware store branded machine I can guarantee it was made by somebody else, possibly MTD (who make a lot of brands) but by the looks of the age of the thing, who knows. The drive box looks a lot like the old Mastercraft (Canadian Tire) that I used to have. Maybe contact Home Hardware corporate with a photo and maybe somebody there has a corporate memory.

I agree the they were probably for the tensioners. The action of the hand controls will likely confirm that. Looks for holes in the pivot arms then other holes in frame or cabinet that are the corresponding distance away.
