I used my El Toro snow blower last week and it worked fine.

Customer Question

I used my El Toro snow blower last week and it worked fine. I have extended the lip on the nose of the snow blower and it is now getting a much better bite. However the blades that throw the snow out are not doing that. They will sometimes throw a little snow. I checked and I do not see any obstructions in the lower or upper part of the blower. Any suggestions?
Thank you,

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

The first thing that I would look as is the belt that drives that auger or blades, it may be slipping when put under a load.
