Save Your Machine with The Right Snowblower Pins
It's happened before, your snow blower is humming along, cleaning-up winter's mess, throwing arcs of snow from your driveway, when all of the sudden the auger stops in mid-turn. The engine is still going full bore, but the auger is frozen in place. The stress that the engine exerts on the gearbox as it revs is about to start causing damage when SNAP, the snowblower pins holding the auger to the engine driven shaft break, the stress on the gear-box is released and engine settles into a smooth purr again.
From rocks, to snow-covered newspapers, to balls and toys, there are a lot of things that may be lurking under the cloak of freshly fallen snow, things that will choke-up your snow blower, potentially stripping cogs, splitting gear boxes and costing you hundreds of dollars in repairs. That's why it's important to always have a few spare shear pins on hand, and never replace a broken shear pin with a regular bolt, even as a temporary fix, just don’t do it.
Designed to break under the PSI specific to each machine, the Craftsman snow blower pins are designed to help your snow blower last for decades while saving you hundreds in costly repairs. Made to fit easily in the pre-drilled auger and shaft, these shear pins drop in with ease and with a cotter pin fastener, you don't need to lug around tools to replace them. Just throw a couple in your pocket before you head out to blast that driveway clean, and know that no matter what lurks under the snow, you've got it covered.

IF YOU HAVE A SNOW THROWER , YOU MUST KEEP SHEAR PINS ON HAND , IT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FINISHING BY HAND ALL THE SNOW , OR JUST A 10 MINUTE REPAIR AND THE MACHINE FINISHES THE JOB, FOR YOU .

this is the first time i have had to replace the shear pins in six(6) years. i have cement drive way, when i had a gravel driveway i broke pin every year. but that's OK and is to be excepted because the gravel will mix in with the snow and will jam up the auger.
Easy to find the right ones for my snowblower as one size fits the smaller blowers. Bought some before the last snowfall just in case. Easy to replace.
I recently purchased a new craftsman snowblower and purchased these pins along with it. This was a "No Brainer" If for ny reason the existing pins break, you can have a few spares to keep on using the blower. This saves time and money in the long run!
