Power Max auger cover crack

Have a Power Max 826 ,model 38620. The thick plastic cover that transitions the auger housing to the chute developed a crack. I tried to JB weld it after drilling a hole at either end of the crack. Well with the icy snow we had, the JB didn't hold and the crack began to grow. So today I made a paper pattern to cover the cracked area and transferred it onto a piece of sheet metal. I then formed it over the cover and pop riveted it to the cover. Gave it a heck of a workout today and it appears to be holding up real good.


Anyone else with a Power Max ever have this problem?

This is the first I have heard of any cracked plastic on a Toro. In fact, I thought I had read that the plastic parts had a lifetime warranty or something. Maybe inquire with Toro or see if you can find any info in the warranty section of your manual?

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

Called Toro today and from what they say this part has a 5 year warranty. So I'm a few years out of luck. Now ever I feel I got a really good fix on this and I recently bought a Toro upgrade kit which included a drive gear set, this part, and a axle shaft for only 44 bucks so I'm in good shape. just my luck of course.
