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.
Replacing the Scraper Bar
1) Remove Scraper Bar Bolts
Remove the bolts that attach the scraper bar to the auger housing.
2) Remove the Scraper Bar
Remove the damaged or worn scraper bar from the auger housing.
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.
