1128 adjustments Blower drive

We have 6 in of wet snow the Toro blows better than I thought it would. But some times when I want to change the direction of the chute the blower drive on right bar will not stay engaged. Is there a quick fix or adjustment, It is still snowing like mad will have 4 to 6 in tomorrow for sure. Thanks

I am going down my drive and after I get past my house I want to changr direction of the chute so I use my right hand to move the Joy stick and the augar stops not all the time just every 3 or 4 time With 6 in of wet snow this is a pain. Just looked out side and have 8 in of more wet snow.

You are going to have to look under the dash and figure out how the locks work and then see if something is worn out or what.

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

Let me know if you run into this again. I'll do some looking around!

Thanks MagnumB, my joy stick is sticky a lot of the time now could be the volume of wet snow going out the chute it does not want to turn some times. I will not worry much for now in case we get more snow.

That's strange, generally speaking back in around 2006, if you were to have an issue with the quick stick, it would be due to water freezing in the lines. This has been largely solved. If you are having issues with rotation, because it's a floating chute mechanism, then perhaps the issue then is with the joystick interlock (blue dealy on the top of the stick)

Wondering if it's not fully disengaging...then again, that's likely to affect both axis of movement.

Is your unit stored indoors or out?

The cables are all pre stretched...so that shouldn't be an issue.

If you can post a vid showing the issue that could help. For the most part the common complaint (if you can call it that) is that it's too easy to move. It's a measure of it's good design that under load, the system frees up.

I'm curious as to the problem. Either way, it's certainly solvable.

Thanks Mag, talked to the dealer yesterday, they will come over and take a look at it. I keep the Toro in a unheated garage.
