CC Blower shaft broke @ shear pin hole

Have a CubCadet 3X, 42" blower in a CC XT2. Last weekend I broke the shaft that drives the gearbox to the augers. It broke at the shear-pine hole for the third-stage, accelerator blade, just before the blower impeller assy. It was wet, heavy snow, maybe 6-7".
Not happy. I have 3yr std warr. plus I bought the 2yr ext. (2016). The pin looked like it was still intact. The auger free turning on the front side, and the blower blades not moving led me to believe that some thing 'broke'. I needed to use a pliers to remove the pin in 3-pieces.
Anyone experience this same problem?
