I live in the northeastern US which just got pummeled with 3+ feet of snow.
I was out snowblowing all morning using my Cub Cadet and it did a great job. However when I turned it off and started gently knocking the excess snow off the blades/augers, I noticed that although three of them were tough to turn, one of them was spinning loosely.
When I say "tough to turn", I mean they felt normal. With each of the these three augers, trying to turn them manually was difficult but also resulted with the impeller spinning at the same time. This is normal given my experience with snowblowers.
But one of the augers you can spin easily and does not seem to be connected to the impeller at all.
Has something broken or shorn off here?
