Safted!!

Bought a used 9-26 Husqvarna last fall and seemed to run very good. No funny noises and moved around and auger seemed to be ok. Got it ready for winter by checking and replacing oil also adjusted belts etc. First snow it seemed all right first few feet then nothing out shoot. Looked in box and nothing. A couple weeks later I finally pulled auger housing of ( checked shaft coming from motor to gear box and if free wheeled without auger turning) and found that auger shaft worm gear was almost chewed off and main steel gear it rides on had its teeth chewed also . Been to a couple dealers and shaft is available for $300Can but gear is not available.
Went on a few sites and one is available in Texas for almost $300AM(main gear)
So right now it will cost around $600 for 2 parts to fix. I think it is worth fixing as rest of blower is solid -no rust-and looks only a few years old but according to #on tag it is an 96 or 09????????
One site says month/week/year other says something else.
Everytime I put in model number it doesn't accept it.

I had a similar experience with my 32 Bolens after a few years of use. Turned out that the auger gear box was never lubricated and dumb me, I never though of checking it. Just curious, did you find any sign off lubricant in the gear box?

I have changed that gear on a few machines BUT it seems Husqvarna will NOT sell the worm gear, Only the entire gear box so I avoid them now. No buying used ones to repair and resell them for me for this reason.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

I'm thinking 'shafted', but it fell victim to a fingercheck error . . . .

I like the colors of the Husqavarna! I'd buy it for the colors and the features. I wouldn't buy it after being on SnowblowerForum.com

IMO Husqavarna is riding off their long ago great chainsaw reputation. At one time the top three professional chainsaws in the world were, Husqavarna, Jonsered, and Stihl. 35 years ago I owned all three, Husqavarna was the best, Jonsered second, Stihl third but not last. I had three or four Stihls. Husqavarna cut the fastest, ran the smoothest; similar for the Jonsered; Stihl was tough, always could count on it. I also owned two Poulans, two Homelites, and two Echos. Echo was the weakest cutting.

Have you considered trying to find a nice used machine with a blown engine and moving yours over onto it ?? Unless your Husky is in pretty good condition I'd be hesitant about spending that kind of money fixing it but I don't know what machines in your area new or used go for.

Can you go into User CP and add your location. I'm guessing it's Canada but it'd be nice to be sure plus it makes a difference in your parts source and price.
