1986 824 Model:38080

Hello,

I'm new to the forum and looked through all the past threads but didn't see an answer. I have an old 1986 Toro 824 Model: 38080 and it's going strong!!! The other day there was some wet heavy snow and the auger/impeller stop turning! I checked the shear pins/bolts on the auger and all are intact. I checked the impeller key and it's there. I checked the auger/impeller belt and seems a bit loose (I adjusted a little but didn't do anything). When the machine is off I can grab the belt and turn the impeller/auger. Do I just need to replace the auger/impeller belt (I have toro part number 26-9670 for a new belt). When I start the engine and engage the auger/impeller nothing is turning. Is it the belt that spins and gives power to the auger/impeller? Thank you in advance!

Mike

Yes, the belt will rotate along the output shaft of the engine and the impeller pulley below the output shaft. Have you taken off the belt cover and watched the belt and pulleys when running and engaged? Along with a worn out belt, other possibilities are the bolt in the end of the output shaft has come loose and the pulley sheaves are not contacting the belt, the cable for the belt tensioner has broken (the handle will be very loose when being engaged), or your impeller bearing is toast and the pulley and shaft are moving up and down when the belt is engaged (happened to my recent Toro rescue machine).

+1 on the belt replacement.

by chance did the belt/pulley get wet? (i.e. missing belt cover)

Also, do you have any pics of your machine...we like pictures

Hello and welcome to the forum monstermike. The Toro belt number 26-9670 is the correct auger belt you need. If an emergency or you want to save some money, pick up a 4L400 (1/2" x 40") from a local hardware store and it will work fine if everything else is functioning as it should.

Go to https://lookup3.toro.com/request/request.cfm and type in your model number 38080 and your serial number found on the rear left of the snow blower to get an owners manual for proper and safe installation of the new belt. I hope this helps, good luck.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008 (Gone)
Toro 721-QZR (38741) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Thanks guys. I found the Toro 26-9670 belt replacement part at a local dealer I'll pick it up tonight or tomorrow and take some pics of what things are looking as it is now before I swap out the belt. Hopefully it's just the belt! Many thanks for you assistance.

Hi Guys,

Played hockey last night so didn't get a chance to pickup the new belt but I took some pics for you to have a look at the situation. Not sure if they will help. Everything is rotating smoothly when I turn the belt by hand and the bottom pulley isn't loose. Any other thoughts? Plan to grab a new belt after work tonight. Thanks

Mike

The belts don't look terrible, but they certainly don't look new. I don't know where you're located, but I normally get my belts from Fleet Farm because they are 1/2 the price of the Toro labeled ones and are essentially the same. I just replaced my auger belt on a Toro Powershift 824 because it was starting to bog down in heavy snow. It was fine last year, but now it was slipping.

Throw a new auger belt on there and see what happens. I think it will take care of your problem.
