How to Replace the Scraper Bar on a Snow Blower

The scraper bar is located on the bottom of the auger housing. Its purpose is to remove the last bit of snow from the surface you’re clearing.

If your scraper bar is cracked, broken, or worn, it’s time for a replacement.

3) Install New Scraper Bar

Attach the new scraper bar and reinstall the bolts onto the auger housing. The scraper bar can be adjusted slightly (higher or lower) on the auger housing to contact more or less of the surface. Lowering the scraper bar will allow you to dig deeper into hard-packed snow.

Before you start the snow blower, make sure the augers are not in contact with the ground.

The scraper bar is a wear item. If you frequently use your snow blower, regularly check the scraper bar for damage and excessive wear.
