30 inch deluxe issue......

i purchased a ariens 30 inch deluxe last year and worked great. This year my son used it after i told him not to and had to have hit something. One rake cuts the other does not moved but it did because the rake was hitting machine and scratched the **** out of it. I'm sure the shear pins are broke because i can not see to heads nor bolts. If I replace the shear pins or is there more damage. I spin it freely and it catches the machine. is something bent and hopefully not exspensive to fix. Thank you in advance.....Joe

Welcome to the forum, the auger could be bent on the side the shear bolt broke, you should be able to eyeball from the end and trying to turn the auger until it scrapes the bucket, surely one the fin would be crooked by the impact, try to inspect every inch of the affected part and take some close pics for us to see. Good luck

The only real way to find out, is put the shear pin in, and and see if the auger transmission has excessive play. It might have a little, and you may want to gauge this by going done to the dealer and compare what that is on a new machine. I would also take the boy with you, and ask him how many drive ways it would take, to pay for a new one (pointing at the price tag)....

I would also have someone run the augers, so that you can do a visual on the augers from a safe distance, to make sure that the axle is not bent.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I agree with this part as the OP mentions one auger rolls ("One rake cuts")meaning the engine is running and has the auger engaged and for now his gear case seems to operate normally. The challenge will be to eyeball the auger with the broken shear pin as it seems the auger is not bent really bad since it only scratches the bucket, it will take an exact pounding location to straighten it and pictures would help us a lot just to see if a fin is bent also. Do you concur or did I miss something?

One other thing is he didn't mention where it is rubbing. If it is rubbing on the outside it could just be with no shear pin the auger has slid out on the shaft a bit.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Sounds like the shear pin broke....and the auger slid down the shaft toward the auger housing.....thus hitting the housing when he spins it by hand.

replace the shear pin....ready to go.

Lesson learned for your son

Nope, I agree. You might also notice that the outside panel flexing. I just find it easier to determine if something is bent, when it is rotating. I was just trying to guide him with safe methodology.

Sorry DB but I miss this part as from the start I thought he was referring to the auger hitting the back of the bucket because it was rammed or something, I guess we need more details if he ever comes back.
