Today I was at one of the buildings that has one of the TRS-27s. I haven't used the machine yet this year but back around January/February of this year it went into the shop due to a broken Auger belt. (happened while I was cleaning up what the snowplow left behind) I got her out, finally got her started, and she was doing ok until after about 15 minutes of clean up work, again with what the plow truck left behind on the sidewalks and around the light poles, the belt snapped. AGAIN. If the auger belt is snapping frequently what could be the causes of this? There is no smoking or burning that I can tell, it just seems to break in half and that's that. I didn't open it up completely, too cold.. not enough light. I am going to see if I can get one of the building mechanics to load it up onto a trailer and deliver it to my house for me to work on here at home. Surprisingly this particular machine doesn't have any engine/carb issues. (Has to be the only TRS-27 out of the 4 we have that doesn't) It's just been the belt for the auger and I believe it's had a belt replaced for the wheel drive.
