As the post says my super chief 1450 is only spitting snow. This isn't wet snow but not super fluffy. I though I read somewhere that there were 2 different pulleys (size) used for mower / snowblower. Am I expecting too much from the single stage blower. Help would be appreciated to a nooby Jake owner

How much snow? Single stage blowers don't work very well with anything under about 6 inches and you have to feed them faster than a dual stage. Try moving a little faster and see if that helps.

Also, check and see how much space is between the auger and the blower housing.....Mine were all bent up and had a large space. I added pieces of rubber belting to take up the space.....Haven't tried it yet but will see is it improves. 

 

BTW...the blower belt should be on the larger pulley of the PTO clutch

I'm moving fairly fast and full throttle- bout 4" snow and it's choking the chute constantly.

I'm not sure there are two pulleys-you mean at the electric clutch? And 2 is the drum adjustable?to the back wall I mean.Oh I'm new to this ;)

I did like Poncho62 did with the bailer belting on my single stage Bolens snowblowers, and rarely have the chute clog, even on slush.  Width wise, I cut the belting wider so that it starts to wrap around the corners of the paddles, left and right.  Not sure how much difference this makes, since I didn't try it narrower, but suspect it helps by not allowing the snow or slush to fall off of the sides of the paddles.  I cut it a little long and trimmed it to length with a sharp knife, allowing about 1/16th of clearance between the auger housing.   I can go through a slushy puddle now and it will blow the slush and water but not clog up the chute.  On one blower, the paddles were quite damaged, and I bolted some 1/8 steel plates underneath the belting to back them up as a stop gap measure.  That blower would hardly work with out clogging without adding the mods. 

 

Regards,

 

Doug

Go to our Manuals Section and look for the original blower manual. See what it says. It makes sense that you need to be on the larger pulley at the PTO. If you are still having problems, post some clear picks of the blower, tractor, PTO, and the routes that the belts follow. Good  Luck, Rick

TX Boyscout,

With the cooler weather yesterday the snow  hardened up a bit and I re-belted the blower. You know what I threw snow "like the wind" to quote Forrest Gump.

I will take some pics today but it appears I only have one pulley in the electric clutch housing. I'm sure the belt is routed right.

Blew back a couple of snow banks this morning, with the rubber belting, works 100% better than last year

I'll have to try that on my single stage.  I simple installation that adds trowing distance.  Thanks Poncho!
