Where can I buy replacement kit shear pin bolts for the auger (kit part 707555) in Canada? I am having a real hard time finding a vendor that sells the Briggs & Stratton bolts.

Asked by: TheBigguy360
I used stronger bolts from the hardware store. Don't replace with the same part or you will end up with the same problem. Hope this helps.

My snowblower is not throwing snow as far as it used to.  Sometimes the auger won’t engage.  If I tilt the blower slightly by pushing the handles upwards and the front of the blower closer to ground it seems to work better.  What could be the issue?

Asked by: KUmarsingh
I have only used this snow blower 3 times this winter. The first time it worked well however when I went to start it the second time, I had to take a heat source out to thaw the ice around the intake wheel/auger, The machine is built in a way that allows melted snow and then ice to accumulate and freeze around the intake auger making it stall as soon as you engage it. Since then, when I shut it off, I raise the back wheels so the water will run out. The second and now finally third time I used it (two days ago), I had to repeatedly push the machine forward to get the wheels to engage. I will be calling Lowe's in the hope they will allow me to return it.

Are the shear pins for the second stage auger the same as the shear pins for the first auger?

Asked by: KimEJ
Nope, the second used a stand bolt, not a shear pin. I have my second stage spinner damaged by a rock. It bent the spinner badly, but those bolts are not been sheared at all.

Hi does in come with the electric extension cord to plug in for the electric start, and I am getting it assembled at the store, so will the engine oil be in it and will I just have to add gas to start and use it.

Asked by: Phinner
Mine came with the cord, but any one will do. I haven’t used the electric start as it starts in first pull everytine I use it. I had it assembled as well, I don’t recall if I had to add the oil or not. You can always ask them when you pick up or check the dip stick before first use.

Briggs & Stratton 2-Stage Snow Blower with 250 CC Engine - 27-in is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 66.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Snowblower, easy to use and powerful! I purchased this Snow Blower on Boxing day and took advantage of the $400 in savings. It was assembled at Lowes and was in great working condition. The staff was very helpful and made sure that it was topped up with oil and advised me on a gas conditioner to use. With this being my first Snowblower purchase, and living in Barrie, I was worried about how it would handle the snow that piles up at the end of the driveway from the plows flying by. Snow, slush, ice, go through this machine like butter! The controls are super easy to use as well. I highly recommend this blower!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good Machine I bought this machine a year ago after doing a little research online. I also watched a couple of YouTube videos on how to start and maintain this snow blower. From what I recall, the machine was assembled when it was delivered, which was very convenient. The only adjustments I made was to lift the auger level slightly to ensure there was no possibility the blades will hit my driveway surface. That was very easy to do. This machine has started instantly using the electric start every time. I use Mobil 1 5W-30 synthetic oil and a fuel stabilizer. The manual recommends using Briggs & Stratton 5W-30. So far, a very good purchase. There is enough torque to clear away heavy snow. The chute control is very easy to use and I was surprised at how far it throws the snow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not reliable I've had this blower for 2 seasons - when it works, its a good machine, but I've had multiple issues with it. First, the sheer pins continually break. I think I replaced 4 in my first season with it. Second, many of the metal elements have rusted. Third, the machine began leaking oil near the end of the first season and while this was covered under warranty, the nearest briggs and stratton authorized dealer was 40km away (I live in London ON). The price is probably the best in comparison to other blowes of this size and power, but you get what you pay for. I would not recommend based on my experience, but if you are lucky enough to pick up a problem free one, you'd have a really good machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive I bought this beast a month ago when we had about 20 inches of wet snow. In the first 20 minutes I ran into my dogs rope toy, the machine jammed and quit immediately. After about 15 minutes of cutting the toy free I fired the blower up again and ran it for another 2 hours. I was expecting this thing to stall out, maybe break a shear pin, or even plug up but no dice. The harder I pushed into the deep wet snow the farther it threw the white stuff. I just finished running it for another two hours with no hiccups. I felt I needed to wright a reveiw on this machine so here are my five stars. Great product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auger stops when it hits snow I bought this December 2018. It never blew snow 40 feet it just dumps about 3 feet out of the chute. You have to stop every few feet or it gets overloaded. It is faster to use a shovel. I have greased the auger using the zerks fitting and done the recommended maintenance. The unit was fully assembled when I picked it up. The adjustment for the throttle cable is bent so it does not adjust. It seems to run in turtle speed only. The engine runs fine but the snow thrower part leaves much to be desired. I will be calling service to see if they can fix it. Lowe’s substituted this unit when they could not provide the craftsman unit I had purchased initially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in time. We picked up our Briggs & Stratton 1227MD and had 10" of snow the next day. We have a very long driveway on a hill and the 1277MD made quick work of it including our parking area. It started on the first pull, it has electric start but I don't have a 75 yard extension if I had to restart it down the hill. I tried the electric start later and it worked just fine. It is very easy to assemble and only took a few minutes. Directions could be a little better. So far no flaws and it beats the snot out of a shovel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from B&S Snow Blower Glad I got a new slow blower before the storm hit with 18" of snow on 2/1/21. However, this blower is factory preset for tension on the wheel drive. It is too loosed and at times the blower stops moving and the wheels don't spin. I believe that it must be a belt drive and its slipping. I need to get the book out and see how to tighten the drive link. Otherwise, when it did run it threw snow over 20 feet and didn't clog up in the chute. The controls are great and easy to reach. Broke a shear pin, but have no idea what caused it to break. There weren't any branches or rocks to clog the blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine I bought this Briggs & Stratton 250cc after much research. My son and I put it together this past weekend and that was a snap! Great instructions. We had a bit of trouble starting it the first time, I was expecting that, so used the starter and there was no messing around there! Starts great now, just one pull. Can't wait for the snow now., I'll update after we use it for a couple of months.
