New blower issue

Hi
I just received my 1 stage mtd blower, the auger is in contact with the auger housing, so the snowblower vibrate a little bit and the engine power goes up and down when the auger hits the housing, is that normal?

No on both counts. The auger/paddles shouldn't be hitting the housing and the engine shouldn't be surging.

Where did you get it ??

.
Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I order it online at lowes.
The blower is a 1 stage, so the auger is not metal, it s like rubber

I'd call them tomorrow or tonight and let them know you're having problems. Might have been damaged in transit.
What is the model number of it ??

I'd just get a replacement.If it took a hit or fell off a truck you may be looking at other damage down the road.If it was 50 percent I'd reconsider ,but not for 10 percent.

Well..since you asked, no, its not that great..pretty low-end.
Honda and Toro are generally considered the top two for single-stage machines..Ariens and Simplicity/Snapper would also be good.

I would post some pics of the business end of the machine. That might give folks a better idea of whether the 10 % discount would be better served in repairing yourself, or sending it back.

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.
