Storm 2860

New here and I just got to use my new storm 2860 for the first time today, and I already have a question. The machine work and ran great but when I went to back it up into the shed it seemed the reverse setting 1 wasn't working quite right. Reverse setting 2 worked fine, but it just seemed 1 was way to slow. Like it was barely moving. Anyone else ever have this issue? When I get a chance I will test it out some more and see if it still seems off.

I hate to think my new snowblower needs adjustments already 😠. Reverse 1 is between forward 1 and reverse 2. All other speed settings work fine so why would that 1 setting be off? I will have to try it out again tomorrow.

Usually the reverse speeds are pretty slow. They probably do this intentionally to prevent injury.

don't worry..you can tip the machine up, pull the pan and adjust the speeds to any thing you are happy with.....I'd just leave it be.

Yes, this exactly. If you look at pages 16-17 in your manual it shows how adjustments are possible. On my Simplicily I thought 1st was a bit fast so I made an easy adjustment to suit the way I wanted my machine to work.
