    Snow blower not picking up snow
    I have a Noma 5.0 HP snow blower that is not working correctly. The shears are not turning and picking up the snow.

    I've checked the shear pins, but they seem to be in good condition.

    What else should I check?

    Check the belt and the belt tensioner. I'm guessing it is slipping and the tensioner should have some adjustment.

I broke a shear pin on my craftsman snow thrower. The head and retainer nut are sheared off properly but I don't know how to get the actual pin out of the shaft. Should I just use a small screwdriver and hammer and just knock it out? I have replacement pins.
