Customer Question
I have a HSS622CT1...

I have a HSS622CT1 snowblower, it will operate fine in reverse, but will not move forward in either gear? Can you explain what this problem is and how to fix it? thanks.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It worked when I put the snowblower up for the spring. Today is the first snow of the season and it turns on but will not engage the forward gears.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, if I can.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nothing else.
