Hi all, new member have 8526 for several years now. I try to do some of my own maint. Being retired gives me more time. I can't adjust the speed control, I followed instructions in the manual but I don't always have reverse and only seem to have one forward speed. Having turned 71 I find the snowblower hard to yank around! Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have an Ariens but not that one so flying blind here.


Don't know which engine you have, but very likely you can add an electric starter.


On the gears, one blower I had the other year had some damage to the linkage so it didn't line up correctly. Maybe get a picture of yours, maybe someone can tell if it's right or not.

There are many videos on YouTube that will discuss adjusting the linkages. Worth watching a few, or perusing your owners manual. You can also download the Repair Manual from Ariens.com
