tony Kari: Once again awesome video. 

donyboy73: ok

Smallgasengine1: @dennisqwertyuiop it can be filled with either gear oil or grease

old64goat: Good info, I wonder if I should grease the gear box I never do grease the one in my old MTD blower.

323fpawel: Hay don great video pozdrowienia z polski

Jerry the Coo: I forgot to mention the other day Dony,that next summer I'm going to remove the Augers and put some copper lubricant on. It never even occurred to me that that could happen..... You saved me some hassles down the road. When I take them out I'll let you know the condition they're in. Thanx!. :)

donyboy73: @youroldbuddy1 i will be posting 3 repair vids on it and you will see it

ScottAtwater1: For some reason My mtd is a different set the other snowblowers because the auger under the shout looks like paddles the front auger is the same as the rest, different setup

donyboy73: @wilkes982 yes, 80w90 gear oil

steven8979: Awesome video Don! Have you made a video in the past about the scraper bar and how often it should be changed? Thanks! -Steve8979

kwakman99: Dony, my friend has a honda snowblower and it has an incredible reach throwing snow even though it has a smaller engine then my 10.5hp MTD. Any way to improve my blowers reach? Is it simply impeller speed? As well what is a 2 stage blower? And how does it differ from a 1 stage? Is my 30" 10.5hp Tecumseh MTD considered a single or duel stage blower? Thanks.

donyboy73: it would work, however i'm not sure what load it could handle and for how long

DENNIS N: Is the gear box filled with grease ? just wondering

bryce995: so lets say (theoretically speaking) what if i put two lawn mower tires where the snow blades would normally be and put an engine to the input shaft? could that drive something or would the gearbox just not handle the power? (its a verry verry low power motor!) and yes i know the speed would be pretty low, but i just want to know if it had tires on it would it be able to move a load and maybe how big of a load?

Jerry the Coo: I forgot to mention the other day Dony,that next summer I'm going to do what you did in the video,.. Take the Augers out& put some copper lubricant on.

donyboy73: @steven8979 not yet but definitely a video for the future

steven8979: @donyboy73 10-4 bud!

snaponjohn100: Great info. Thanks for the post. God bless you and your wife. John

lawnmowerrecycler: Good video as usual.

donyboy73: 80 90 gear oil

donyboy73: @dennisqwertyuiop it will be filled with 80w90

donyboy73: @BuhlzI lol, it has bearins so it's key to make sure they are always in good condition.

daand12: When are you going to drive that Granny cart again?

BerlanGermany: DANKE FÜRS EINSTELLEN Greetings from Germany

outdoorsman310: do you still have that granny cart with a big engine? good video seems to be a pretty simple system. is there a ball bearing on the side with the cover?

donyboy73: @outdoorsman310 yes still have the granny cart, i'll be posting 3 vids starting tommorrow on this auger system

donyboy73: @323fpawel thanks, greetings from Canada!

krismounts: Don who makes the best snowblower?

1972FordF150: Man that looks like a really low geared gear box lol

donyboy73: @kwakman99 it's all due to gear ratio, impeller design etc

donyboy73: @kwakman99 that's correct

whitegreg56: Looks like that gearbox case is made out of aluminum. I think the ones that are made of cast iron can take more abuse without breaking.

kwakman99: @donyboy73 - Thanks. So smaller pulley wheels on the auger shaft to make it spin faster would improve reach. I'll talk to my local repair guy and see if it can be done. Thanks again for all the effort you do.

youroldbuddy1: Hay don,great job but how could you tell if the oil in the case is low

wilkes982: is there meant to be some form of grease or oil in there?

donyboy73: @kwakman99 that's correct

donyboy73: @snaponjohn100 hi john!

donyboy73: @krismounts maybe honda
