Hello All! Hopefully someone can assist me. I recently got an older toro 824 snowblower from a neighbor, went threw the carb, runs great. The problem im having is when i enter heavy snow, it seems to get plugged up, and wont throw the snow, it just slowly comes out of the chute. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Loose belt or impeller clearance issues I would say.

Yes, first make sure the belt looks decent and tightens up good when the handle it pressed. If the belt is good another thing to do is check the gap between the impeller fan blade and the barrel housing it sits in.

Here is a kit that you can bolt to the impeller to fill in the distance. Some people make their own and some just spend the money on it.
