My agrifab LST 42c snow blower attachment is bogging in 3-4 inches of light snow. I replaced 56 inch belt and replaced the shear pins this year. The throttle is at full capacity and I operate the garden tractor at slow speed. The transmission is an automatic. This problem just occurred last week and today. I am not very mechanically inclined, I am attempting to trouble shoot instead of an expensive repair shop.
You say "the blower is bogging down"... Not the tractor engine but the blower itself?

Could be the belt you replaced isn’t tensioned properly and slipping under load.

Is something slipping? Is it the belt that stops? But the pulleys keep turning?
