Hey guys I have a Scott's S 2554 garden tractor manufactured by John Deere I purchased a snowthrower attachment for it brand-new that is correct for my machine.. I installed everything as the manual says .. I went to use it today and the augers are spinning the wrong way causing the snow to go down and not out to shoot.. does anybody know what could be the cause of this?IMG_3620.JPG IMG_3621.JPG IMG_3622.JPG

That would have to be disappointing. Hope someone comes along that can help you.

The only things I can think of  is that maybe you twisted the belt on the tractor end where it connects to the engine. Look at that belt like it reins on a horse, if you reversed them pulling with your right hand would pull on the left jaw of the horse leaving the horse very confused.


The front near the blower looks correct and I am not sure how everything would line up if you reversed the belt , but it would be my first thing to look at .

Switch how the belt routes around the snowblower pulley. If the belt coming from right rear pulley on the snowblower frame goes under the big snowblower pulley currently, switch it so the left side one goes under instead. Or vise-versa.

I agree with both of the above. As long as everything is otherwise routed correctly, all it would take is a twist of the belt at the engine or the blower to have it rotating in the wrong or right direction. Post some clearer pics and Good Luck, Rick
