Hi, I am new to the forum and wanted to show a picture of my 2008 Yardman that I bought new.

It has a 10 hp Tecumseh snow king that has performed flawlessly.
The track drive system performs ok but you have to be very careful to not get a pile of wet snow inside the track or the rubber track will pop off of the drive wheel and it is a pita to put it back on.
I have adjusted the tracks properly but this is a design flaw in that there is too much stretch allowed in the rubber track and it will stretch itself off of the drive wheels in certain conditions.

Despite that issue, it works great. Starts first pull, drives the snow well and hasn't broken a single shear pin entering the ninth winter season I have had this.

*sorry the picture won't attach due to size so I will adjust and add it later.

I have the 7hp version of that blower! I had to replace the drive wheels to stop the track from coming off. Look at yours and see if it is missing a few of the plastic "teeth" on the wheel (especially the inside ones)

No teeth were missing on the wheels.

I recently gave the machine to a work colleague who is mechanically inclined so any issues he may have he'll figure out a fix.
