Toro 2450 Squealing

This snow blower is awesome regarding a quick start. However, after blowing snow for a few minutes the paddles seem to stop working and there is a squeal. Its almost as though a belt is worn. Help anyone?

squealing usually indicates that the belt is not properly tensioned.

go to toro.com and download the manual for it. set the belt tension to factory specs and report back.

(a new belt would not hurt either, but even the new belt would need to be tensioned properly).

With that being a single stage , check to see if you picked something up in the auger/ paddle assembly.
Ice chunks or sticks. without the auger drive engaged and engine off you should be able to turn the auger/ paddle assembly.

You could possibly have a dislodged belt as well.

Another vote for checking/setting belt tension. If it's blowing successfully, the augers can't be totally stuck, though maybe there's something restricting them. With the handle released, you should be able to turn the paddles by hand.

OP indicates that after blowing for a few minutes the paddles stopped and unit started squealing.

Good point, sorry. I assumed they were describing typical behavior, that it always does this pattern: OK for a few minutes, then slipping & squealing.

If this is not typical, and was a sudden event, then definitely check closely for something stuck that can cause the paddles to bind up. But even if you do find something stuck, it's still a good reminder to check your belt tension anyhow.
