      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.

      • For use with Craftsman® two-stage snow blower models: 88190, 88355, 88370, 88455, 88555, 88690, 88700.1, 88755, 88790, 88955, 88970, 88999
      • Properly engineered breaking points protect valuable machinery from damage
      • 4 Shear pins are easy to install
      • 4 Cotter pins mean easy, tool-free assembly
      • Assembly: Some assembly required

      If you are snowblowing a gravel driveway, be reasonable. These do what they are suppose to. I have a paved driveway and have replaced them once . on my 2nd year. The bad reviews are from people who are expecting a $2 part to take care of a a $5000 issue.... pave your driveway, or get a snowplow

      Buy Plenty
      We got our Craftsman snowblower last year. It came with 4 spare shear pins and we used them all. I bought 8 more to have for this yesr, but SO FAR I've broken 27 this year. I buy them by the dozen now. I have a gravel driveway up in the mountains, but that just doesn't seem right, even though I appreciate that they protect the dive belts.

      Snow Thrower Solution

      This product solved my problem very easily. I thought I might have a big problem but these shear pins were very easy to install and get my machine running again in time for the next snowstorm.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Shear pins

      Love that the shear pins are always in stock. Have extra just in case they break during big storms and so far haven't had to replace them even in heavy snow.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      MUST HAVE'S

      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 .

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
