Powermax 826oe Auger Gearbox

Gearbox moves slightly side to side...is this normal or do I need repair?

What do you mean side by side???????? the shaft or the the whole thing????? there is always going to be a little end play. but if you can grab it and shake it around. the you better have a good looksee around In there. or better yet post some pics or a vid so the masses at hand can see.

Well now since it is still under warranty. might as well let them have a looksee at it. I doubt anything is amiss in there. but if it means you can sleep better at night then by all means take it in.

I had similar issue, but with 25 year old machine. But also had some leaking at the side seals. With PS93's great help, it was an easy gearbox disassembly, cleaning and re-assembly. New gaskets and seals. But agree that if your machine is under warranty, then have the dealer take a look. If it is not leaking, and the seals are not exposed from the movement you have, it will probably be ok.

Just spoke to servicing...they said that it's a common thing for all Toro blowers...in fact there is one in the shop now (for another issue) that has an auger with play in it. So I guess no need to bring it in...
