honda 828

Hi Everybody
I had a really bad day today. I was moving my honda 828 from one location to another in my pickup truck and i didn't realise I had not closed the tailgate. needless to say my snowblower fell out of the truck while i was traveling about 20 MPH. I bent a few things up pretty good but I was able to straighten most of it out. My problem is I now have no forward or reverse on the hydrostatic tranny unless i push it forward or pull it backwards. Once i get it going it will move in either direction but as soon as it hits resistance it will stop as if something is slipping. There appears to be no damage to the tranny no leaking fluids nothing i can see. Is there anybody out there who might know what i did or what i need to do.
Thank you Wayne

Did you knock the pin for the transmission release partially out? Did you check the belt, maybe the spring that tightens the belt popped off. And in the worst case see this video:

Thanks for the quick response
I checked the tranny release lever and it is fine. I checked the drive belt and it was fine engaging when i pressed down on the drive lever and the drive pulley was spinning fine. I checked out the video you attached and that could be the problem because the machine took a pretty hard tumble. I saw another post when I was checking out the site and it was a response to another question about changing the hydro tranny fluid, the tech told the member not to do it because it was a big job to bleed the air out of the tranny, my machine flipping over a couple of times would not have introduced any air into the tranny would it. I wouldn't think so.

Thanks Shryp
I think you were right on the money with that video. I checked to see if the shaft coming out of the tranny going to the gear box was spinning when I engaged the drive lever and it was, the shaft for the wheels on the other end of the gearbox was not. I'm happy to know what the problem is but i'm not sure its something i can tackle.
Thank you very much Wayne

There have been a couple people here that have opened the gear cases. Maybe try looking at these threads for starters.

I believe someone had a detailed post of removing the gearbox and replacing that shaft and some gears with a lot of pictures somewhere on here.

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

repair manual

I took the unit apart and the shaft pin has indeed sheared/broken off. nice call. can anyone direct me to an 828 repair manual? I have found plenty of free owners manuals but no free repair manuals.
Thanks Wayne

Honda only sells paper copies of factory shop manuals; any digital copy you might find online is not legit, and may or may not match your actual machine. In the case of the HS828, there were some running changes to the engine, so a supplement to the base shop manual may be required, depending on the serial number. The good news is when you get one from Honda, it includes the supplement for the engine changes.

Free shipping, and automatic updates for three years, a legit, factory paper shop manual are available from Honda direct via eBay or Amazon:
