When and How to Switch Out Snow Blower Paddles

November 12, 2010

Snow Blower Paddles

Snow Blower Paddles

Some snow blower parts are made to take a beating year after year. Others, like the snow blower paddles wear out with use and need to be regularly replaced.

In this post, we’ll discuss how to know it’s time to replace those snow blower paddles and how to get the job done.

When to Replace Your Snow Blower Paddles

One of the first indicators that you might need to replace your snow blower paddles is that the machine isn’t throwing snow as far as it should. If your snow blower isn’t getting the distance it used to, it’s possible the paddles could be worn down and need replacing.

First, shut off the engine and take out the key. Always be safe when working with your outdoor power equipment. Then try to slip your finger between the paddle and the housing of the snow blower. If you can get your finger in the gap, then the paddles are too worn down to do much good.

You should actually be doing this test a couple times a season to monitor how efficiently your snow blower is working.

Replacing snow blower paddles is a simple task. They’re generally mounted to the auger with screws. Simply pull the screws out and pull the old paddles out.

Now get the snow blower paddle set you purchased for replacement and mount the new paddles on using the same mounting screws.

That’s it. You’re now ready to sling snow like your snow blower is brand new.

Preventative Maintenance Over Crisis Management

Check your snow blower paddles often. Regular replacement will not only keep your snow blower removing snow more efficiently, but it reduces the workload on your machine which will help it last for many more seasons to come.
