Most self propelled tools use a fan belt and pulleys. When you engage it it just tightens up the belt so the pulleys take up the slack in the belt and it turns the pulleys. Sounds like it just needs to either be adjusted or worst case a new fan belt. I know my...

Minnesota Snow: Wife and I bought a snowblower for Home Depote 3 years ago. First time we use it the blower pin broke. Had to bring it back in for repair. Told Home Depot that we didn't want it repaired, just wanted our money back. They wouldn't do it. Fast forward....

We bought our Snow Thrower at Home Depot in September 2012 because plowing was expensive and not very effective. The first big storm of that year was in January, and the auger failed before we finished clearing the driveway. The shear bolts were not the issue. Since it...

Ariens - Biggest POS ever made

I bought my Ariens 20hp riding mower during the winter, on sale. First time mowing, not cutting good. Of course 30 daywarranty was up. Took it to a certified Ariens rrpair shop 3 weeks later they say nothing was wrong with it BS. Mower belt comes off transmission is worthless. Just waiting till it completly take a crap and use it as target practice. Ariens is crap do not buy their junk.

After 2.5 yrs., I replaced 2 blade spindles on my Ariens 17.5 hp 42" cut gear drive mower. Factory spindles have no grease fittings. Smart on their part. More replacements to sell. Also have to replace the blade belt twice. Has the worst clutch I've seen. Either its...

This is the third time in 3 years on a 3 year old lawn mower that I have to fix the steering. I can no longer afford the couple of hundred dollars it will cost me to have a knowledgeable person fix it and will do the work myself, an elderly woman on social security...
