Handles

I live in Manitoba running a crappy Certified snow blower from canadian Tire
Noticed it started doing this the other day.press down on the triggers? To make it drive or the augers turn when I let them go they stay down till I lift them up with very little effort. Raffi

Hi Raffi,

It sounds like a possible broken spring(s), but they could also possibly need to be lubricated if they are rusty and sticky. Some photos or letting us know make and model number would help.

One thing I have learned is that living richly is less about the net worth on your bank statement and more about the value of the lessons you offer those who want to learn from you.

Handles

Sometimes the handles will pop back up other times I have to lift them up. It is a certified Model 060-0184-8 from Canadian tire

Can you get either handle to stick by itself

Do you have interlocks?
Where the auger will stay down if you have the drive lever down?
Reason I ask is because both handles sticking at the same time would be rare and would probably go back to a stiff Interlock.
Even so..is just the drive handle is sticky the interlock could keep both handles down.
