Toro ccr1000 problems blowing snow

So u got this snow blower out of the garbage. Runs great. Auger spins but was clogging up really bad. I replaced the belt as it was worn out and replaced the auger paddles for the same reason. And its better but still wont do more than a couple inches before it just blows forward and not out of the chute. I tried some deep snow and it just threw its belt. Any ideas whats going on ?

Check the idler pulley for a loose bearing, check the bushings on the impeller shaft for lateral movement, and finally, check the adjustment for the bale wire handle. Sounds like the belt is not tracking well or does not have enough pressure on the belt and is causing slipping.

Possibly the RPMs is not as high as it should be?

Spray some silicone or Pledge inside the chute? Wax the chute?

Based on your description of symptoms, it sounds like the snow is barely making it up to the discharge chute, let alone being propelled outward. You now have a new belt and new paddles, so that eliminates a couple of possibilities.

As suggested to you by BBWB the new belt could be slipping. You could test it, by running without the belt cover and observe the difference between running the augers with and without a snow load. Just keep fingers far Pretty simple idler mechanism to snug up the belt a little more if needed. These machines typically have a black cylindrical cover near the top of the cable that activates the idler. Sometimes it's just a matter of slipping that cover off, and repositioning the connection point of the cable from the bail, such that the overall length of the cable is shortened. This in turn makes the idler push a little harder against the drive belt.

Also, check the clearance between the paddles and the back of the housing. Is it nice and tight? With new paddles, it should be. If not, something else is wrong there.

Also mentioned to you by J/L, was the rpm perhaps being a little low. Most of these old single stage Toros used a bracket with a spring that worked against the governor, to set the top speed by bending it slightly left or right, so that's likely how you'd adjust this machine, but don't try to do so without a tach or you risk blowing it up.

The last consideration not previously suggested is that this is an old machine, and on its best day, was only good for 3 hp or so. A compression test would tell you if the engine is just plain worn out, or a victim of insufficient 2 cycle lubrication, which considering the machine's age, and the fact that it landed in the trash, is a possibility.

I have a couple of these little 3hp Toro's that I too fished out of the trash. I got them both to the point where they start right up on the first pull, but they are not much good for anything more than a couple or three of inches of nuisance snow. (Still beats the heck out of shoveling though, for those times that you don't want to drag out a bigger machine ).

If you're looking for guarantees in life, buy yourself a toaster.
