We got about 3" of snow tonight. Took out the shovel and pushed most of the snow to the sides of driveway making two long mounds, clearing the center. Pushed the snow off the apron into the street thinking I would make about 3 passes with the blower. I take out my Ariens 926102 head to the street to clear that end. I notice it isn't really moving anything and discover a sheer pin is broken. Back to the garage about and 15 minutes later I'm back at it. Head back to street and immediately hit a newspaper. Back to the garage. The thing is wedged between the impeller and sidewall. Cutting, pulling with pliers, ripping, using a razor, a long screwdriver, jimmying the impeller back and forth for about 40 minutes finally get it out. Now it's raining. Go back out finish up the end and hit the sides. Now I'm all wet and pissed off. If I would have just finished with the shovel I would have been in the house an hour sooner and dry!
