Some common snow blower parts include:
- Auger: The rotating blade that breaks up and propels the snow into the machine.
- Shear pins: Safety devices that protect the auger and engine from damage by breaking if the auger becomes jammed.
- Belts: Connect the engine to the auger and drive the motion of the machine.
- Skid shoes: Adjustable metal plates that allow the snow blower to glide over the ground and prevent damage to the surface.
- Impeller: The fan-like blade that assists in throwing the snow out of the chute.
- Chute and chute control: The chute directs the path of the thrown snow, and the chute control adjusts the direction.
- Drive control cables: Connect the handle controls to the drive system, allowing the user to control the speed and movement of the snow blower.
- Spark plug: Provides the spark to ignite the fuel in the engine.
- Carburetor: Mixes the fuel and air to create the combustible mixture that powers the engine.
- Fuel filters: Removes impurities from the fuel before it reaches the engine.
- Ignition switch: Turns the snow blower on and off.
- Tire chains: Provide extra traction on slippery surfaces.
- Engine oil: Lubricates the engine’s moving parts.
