Replacing a Shear Pin on a Toro Two Stage Snow Blower
Watch our video on how to replace a broken shear pin on a Toro two stage snow blower.
The shear pins are designed to break when the auger shaft is over-torqued, so the gear case won’t be damaged if you get something stuck in the augers.
Remove the ignition key
Tilt the snow blower back so it rests on it’s handles
Usually, shear pins will fall off when they break, but if there is still some of the shear pin attached, remove the rest of it from the auger shaft, if it is wedged in there, you may need a hammer and punch
To install the new shear pin, align the holes in the auger shaft with the holes in the gear shaft and insert the pin through those holes
Re-install the nut and tighten it with a socket wrench, once the pin is tightened, be sure the auger shaft is secure
