50" Snow Thrower Attachment
Blower worked great until pulley sheered
I just moved to Syracuse, New York and got my snow blower installed and delivered on November 27, 2013. The first three uses while cleaning up 2-4 inches of snow went great. Blower lift worked flawlessly. Blower chewed through the snow without a problem. The chute control was fine, but I had to tighten the nuts on the chute because it kept popping up to full distance throwing rather than what I set it at.
On December 15th, 2013 we had just gotten about 6 inches of snow. I got through most of the driveway and asphalt pad when, "CLANG". The blower stopped working. I looked under the tractor undercarriage and found my belt loose and part of a pulley. I found that it was the four inch return pulley after the main blower pulley. The welds on the pulley had sheered and the pulley split in half.
I expect better build quality from Husquavarna and their products. I hope it is just a lemon.
