Wow - looks like those pictures were taken 20 years ago. That machine is clean enough to eat off of. Any photos of the outside ?
Did you spray a cleaner inside the transmission area ? If so, what did you use ?
No I didn`t spray any cleaner but I wiped it down last Spring before I put it away with a rag with some gas on it. That is how I knew to replace the rubber friction wheel at the end of this winter season. LOL, no I would not eat off of it but it is clean. I`ll post pics of the outside at the bottom.
Great job. Super clean! You really know how to take care of equipment. It should last another twenty years.
Thanks,I take pride in keeping all my equipment, snow blower, Harley, Lawn mowers, Pick up truck, in good working order, outside and in.
Your machine has a 16" impeller. WoW that bad boy must eat snow like crazy and toss it far what kind of machine do you have, that has a 16" impeller? From the color's I'm guessing a Yardman by MTD with a 13hp SnowKing. That is when MTD still made some excellent machine's. I know that's as large as they go and were made by a few manufacturer's. MTD used a 16" impeller on the last of the Snowbird's. Can we get a few photo's of the outside? My Snapper 8246 has a 12" wide impeller with 15" tall augers which is an inch larger than my 11" impellers on my Ariens 10000 series and you can clearly see the difference just by looking at my two machine's. The larger impeller makes a huge difference, even though it's only an inch difference. I can only imagine how a machine with a 16" impeller performs. The belly of your beast must be huge. Changing the friction disk on my Snapper is a cake walk. Very simple yet effective set up in the gearbox. The friction disk is connected to and powered by a chaincase. But trying to change the friction disk on an Ariens 10000 series, forget it, it's a nightmare, you have to literally disassemble, half the gear box just to access it. The friction disk on my 24" Ariens is due for a change, I'm starting to loose power of first. I wish someone would make a video or posted a service manual on how to change the friction disks on those machine's. They did not make it easy. But I wouldn't trade my 2002 Snapper for anything in the world, especially not for anything they build now.
Yup. That`s exactly what it is. 33" with the 13 HP Snowking. It does a fantastic job on moving snow. Always has and now that I have installed the impeller kit, I`m excited to see how it performs next Winter. I`m surprised that YouTube does not have anything on changing your friction disc of your machine. You should request Donnyboy73 to help you with it. He is "The Man" when it comes to " fix it" videos.
Does that have trigger steering on it?????????????
Yes, it does have trigger steering and I love it. Makes moving the machine effortless.
