yardworks snowblower transmissions

i only have forward gear and auger control nothing fancy and i was wondering if it is bad to hold the drive control handle while i pull my snowblower back because my snowblower doesn't go forward anymore but i found out today that the gear in the transmission is just stripped and when i pull my blower back it makes a grinding sound is that why the gear is stripped

ok..... need to know, you say this snow blower only has ( had) one forward speed, and no reverse ? is that how the machine was built ?
to answer your question.....it cant be good to drag a machine backwards when the wheels are trying to pull it forward, so yes, theres a very good chance thats why it stripped.

So let me get this straight.....see if I understand.

You have the machine in forward and the wheels going forward, and you're pulling it backwards?

Do I have that right?

It's about the same as putting your car in reverse while going forward at speed. If you're lucky the tires don't grip well and slip but if not something is bound to wear out and or break.

It would help if you posted the model number so we could look it up and know what machine we're talking about.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

That model does have a geared transmission so it's very likely shot.

On Amazon it's $137 https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&ke...rka3vm1g_b_p37

BUT I'm sitting in WI so although it sure sounds like the trans is gone it's best to have someone who can physically take a look at it verify that unless you're sure.
