A picture would be worth 1000 words but thought I would get this posted and add pics tonight. I'm hoping someone familiar with Power King snowblowers can chime in.
I have the Power King single stage snowblower mounted on my 1618 with hydraulics. On the rod that connects the blower hitch to the pivot arm (allowing me to lift the blower with the hydraulics), there is a spring over the rod. This spring is captured between a hitch pin on the end of the rod and a metal block (attachment to the pivot arm) that can slide a little on the rod. My assumption is that this spring is supposed to support the weight of the blower and provide some suspension when it is lifted.
My spring gets compressed flat, giving very little lift and zero suspension in the process. Is my spring tired and in need of replacement or is this normal? If this is true, do we know the spec for this spring?
I'll post some pics tonight! Thanks!
