My Landmark Restoration Project

My Landmark (MTD) Restoration is now complete. I had my machinist make a new impeller shaft, and cut a new keyway into the auger shaft. Installed new Impeller Bearing, belts, rebuilt and repack auger gearbox. Still had the original aluminum gear in good condition. Repaint and clean and lube every thing. Drilled holes into the axle and installed grease nipples in both sides as well as new axle bushings. Looking forward to using it next winter.

It has a 14" Impeller, I could already throw the snow onto the roof of my house if I wanted to so I don"t think its necessary on this machine. I actually welded up some cracks in the lower corners of the auger housing. Thick heavy gauge steel. The impeller shaft is 7/8 shafting and the auger shaft is 1" I really liked this machine last winter so decided to fix it up nice.

My Craftsman has a 14" impeller and I know how much snow that sucker can eat and toss. Makes for one heck of a rooster tail. They are well worth fixing up as you have a tank when you're done.
You did an excellent job on that machine. The impeller kit is a nice modification if you get much wet heavy snow. Mine would sometimes clog but with the mod it doesn't. It made a difference on mine.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Hello Hankster,
