My father and I started on the snow thrower 2 years ago and I will have to get a new gear before this winter. Ideally I would like to get it sand blasted and power coated. When using the blower, when I go to lift it with the hand control/lift assembly, it seems very heavy. Is there a counter balance, spring or another way to make it easier to lift the blower up?
I need to get some new tires as the ones currently on it are old and leak air. The front tires are 16x6.50x8 tubeless and the rears are 23x8.25x12 tubeless. Any recommendation on tires? I will be mowing the lawn and blowing snow. I do have chains for the rear, but not the wheel weights. Also, would going to a tube tire be better?
I don't have a mower deck, so what ones would be compatible with a 1050?
The engine runs fine, but the clutch and brake do not. When I push down on the clutch and brake, I have a hard time shifting gears and the brake does not seem to work very well. I think I might need to get a new brake and clutch, but is there any adjustments I should try first? If I need to get a new clutch and brake, what would be the parts that I would need, or can I call one of the suggested dealers and they can help me out with all the parts if I tell them what it going on?
I'm pretty new to owning this and right now the 1050 is still at my parents house where I will be working on it. Any suggestions, hints, or tips for these issues or for anything I should familurize myself with, feel free to add it.
