2008 26" MTD Pro that I've owned for number of years. It's been a darn good working SB for me. It's somewhat light and has a great balance and feel. So I took it from old & gray to a fresh faced (what I call a Yamaha blue) machine.

The poly skids I made for it really make a good difference with very low drag and (being a solid axle), better/easier handling. I highly recommend.

To begin, I pulled the 8 HP B&S off the main frame, stripped the blower right down for a complete go-over, service and maintenance.



Scuffed, sanded, prepped and painted. Surely is bright aint it.



Applied some black paint over all the remaining hardware.
Re-installed everything, including new impeller bearing (altho surprisingly it didn't need it...proper maintenance). All shafts and augers, bushings, axle bushings greased and anti-seized all the necessary hardware. Even put 2 new belts on it.
Drive belt is a 3/8" x 34.4"
Auger belt is a 1/2" x 35"

Better than new now. All set and ready for action.
(The camera and lighting are not doing the blower justice)

The only thing I find lacking is a throttle RPM adjustment on the B&S. I'd really like to be able to idle it down to at least 2000 rpm after start-up and upon shut down.






I also managed to save the 'Made in Canada' decal.
