Hi All, newbie here and appreciate any assistance.
My right side shear pins keeps snapping. I am lucky to get 10-15 minutes before I start pushing instead of blowing. I tried using strong bolts even (lathough O know I shouldn't) to no avail. Sometimes it's a small rock I am sure, but it's a generally clean paved driveway.
Any thoughts? Is there some lubricating issue?
Thansk again for any insight.

Are your skid shoes and scraper bar adjusted so low that the auger is hitting the ground? Do you have fairly uneven driveway?

Make sure everything is lubed up.
Also since it is just the right side check and see if it is hitting some where and that the right auger is not bent.

good thoughts

Especially seeing that I seem to be beating the heck out of the scrapper blades. I will try and adjust the shoes.
Thanks
