no shear pins... ever cause a problem?

Looking at Toro's and notice that they don't have shear pins, has this every caused a problem or just some slipping belts if it does grab something?

Is the claim of hardened gears real?

thanks

I don't know about the gears being hardened but it does seem that the belt does slip before taking the gear box out. It doesn't seem to be a problem.

My buddy with a power max broke both “non shear bolts” last storm. Somethings got to give, but toro is confident it’s not going to be auger gears.

Yes . . . the problem is that every time I run over a stick or small branch the Toro sucks the thing up, obliterates it, and chucks it out in pieces. I ran over a newspaper under the snow once . .. forget about ever reading that paper

Also, I ran over a scarf once. . . the auger sucked the thing up. Upon removal, the scarf was about 10 feet long . . .

take a look at the bolt. it has slightly smaller/thinner area at the end of the threads . while hard to do, they do break as designed to with the spacers and thinner thread end area as each one i have broken was right there where the thread ends

Don't let Toro hear you say that. That would destroy Toro's claimed superiority over Honda and Ariens by not needing a sheer bolt because they have an industrial strength gear box ! LOL

I haven't broken a shear bolt yet but living on a mostly tree lined street I go take a look at the properties i'm going to be snowblowing so for the most part I know there are no objects to get sucked up by my toro ( s )
