Snowblower auger speed

Recommended Posts

Ronald Hribar
Someplace I read what the speed of the auger on the snowblower should be. I seem to remember that it was suggested not to run it too fast. And a combination of an late model snowblower and an early model tractor turned auger faster. Also seem to think Maynards setup blew it harder also. Question is what is correct speed of auger?

Ron, I think the early blowers and tractors had the smaller pulleys, so if you used a late model blower with the big pulley on an old tractor with a small pulley, it would turn the auger too slow. If you use an early blower with a late tractor it will turn it too fast. I don't know the correct RPM of the auger is supposed to be, would have to figure PTO RPM, pulley diameters, and teeth count on the roller chain gears.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
