Craftsman gear (?) problem

I have a 2004 Craftsmen 24788790, 9 HP, 28" two stage machine. The problem is that it does not go into reverse and first gear revs too high and the snow blower goes too fast in first. Does anyone know how to diagnose this problem? I'd appreciate any help. In addition the snow blower leaks oil, it is not overfilled. Stephen

Sounds like the shifter needs cleaned and possibly adjusted.



Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Hello and welcome to the forum SBH. There are a few different areas that could be leaking oil, could you take a picture or describe where the leak appears to be coming from??

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
