Snowmaster axle leaking

Just over 2 tanks of fuel, and that plastic transmission is leaking at the axle. I looked up the seal and it was $241 for a nonserviceable gearbox. A 3 season machine it seems. Just an fyi...

I would suggest a trip to the friendly local dealer with a warranty card in hand, right after the threat of snow is past.

Work fascinates me.

I just wanted to let it be known. If everyone here has a leaky axle and nobody says anything, we'd never know it was a problem.

Do you recall smacking the unit's auger into something that didn't move and cracked the gearbox ?

The worst I've done is hit a rock the size of a baseball. Nothing appears to be cracked, just seeping out where the axle exits the transmission. I was mostly disappointed that they say it isn't serviceable.

I thought that I had watched a YouTube video on a disassembly of a plastic snowblower transmission. I haven't been able to relocate it yet.

Too bad that something like an oil seal is "non-replaceable."

Bummer a relatively new transaxle is leaking. On the bright side you do have a 3 year Warrenty. Let us know how the repair gets handled by your dealer/toro.

For the sake of ease, I hope you bought it from a dealer. Good luck.
