Snow blower was handed down to me and hasent been used much. Powersmart 22" 208. 1st and 2nd gear move very slow with the auger engaged, and when in 4th it just sputters. Barley moves at all. Any ideas? Thanks.

:welcome: to the forum Talon

Have you tipped it up, pulled the bottom pan and taken a look at the transmission ??

Thanks! That is the blower I have in the picture. I have not looked into the transmission. I'm not very familiar with two stage snow blowers, so I'm not sure exactly what I should be looking for.

I took off the bottom panel, and nothing seems out of place or damaged. Anything in particular I should be looking for?

Hi. I have the same exact snowblower. Works great for me, no problems, other than a weird backwards creep when I first got it when just the engine idling. It has since I used it in Blizzard 2016 here in the Northeast, that weird backward idling creep went away.

Have you tried to contact Powersmart. I had success with them via email on questions. Their support email is [email protected]. It has a two year warranty on the snowblower and also a two year warrant on the LCT engine.

I would be curious as to what turns out to be the problem on your snowblower.

Note: I forgot to mention I did have to move a washer on the engine drive shaft from the left of the pulley to the right of the pulley because the auger pulley looked noticeable misaligned. Also installed the impeller modification on it that you see mentioned on youtube. Other than that it works fine for me.

Telon ~ I guess you know by now~ that you have to tighten the drive cable coming from the handle ~ loosen the nut on the small metal gig just below the handle and turn the gig until the cable has no slack ~ re tighten the nut```
