 2210 Snowblower

I purchased a snowblower for my 2210. It is a single stage - I had ggo luck with this style in the past and don't really have enough to justify the 2-stage.

The unit performs well - took on nearly a foot of new stuff in Central Wisconsin today with ease (even did the neighbors drives!). BUT, when engaged it seems like it very noisy. Is this normal with JD SB? Anyone that can compare 1-stage vs. 2-stage on noise?

I've checked grease zerks - OK. And, the chain is tight. Maybe that's just the way it runs.

Any advice.

What type of noise? Is it a rotating noise from the auger?

Art,

Yes, it is a rotating noise, mostly from the auger I believe. However, I'm sure the PTO shaft is contributing, too. the 2210 shaft uses several universal joints to get the power from under the driver's seat, under the front axle then to the blower. Can these be noisy??

Not having "heard" another unit, mine might just be normal.

I know my old walk-behinds had a lot of engine noise at full throttle, but I don't recall auger noise. My 23 HP Simplicity used to be noisy but it was belt driven and the engine was louder.

The noise is muffled a bit when I get full chute of snow, thus my thought that it is in the auger mostly.

I'm going to re-grease everything today and check the chain again looking for unsual wear. Nothing better to do on cold Wisconsin day.

The 46" snowthrower works like a demon, but it is noisy. Mine sounds like the bearings are square instead of round, did so when it was new 12 years ago, does so today.

Be sure that the front and mid drive shafts are correctly phased, the U joints should be in exact alignment with each other. I also noticed on my 47 that the drive shaft quick couples chatter when not under load.

busguy,

What do you mean by phased? Either they click into place or they don't -- right? Also this blower is the one I used on a 425 for many years, that machine only had 1 driveshaft and it sounded just as noisy.

Cheers

Guess I thought they used 2 drive shafts like the 47 blower. You can position the front and mid drive shafts in any position on the spline shaft possibly causing the U joints to be out of alignment. this can cause a drive line vibration.

busguy,

Sorry I didn't explain myself well, but the 46" on the 2210 does use the same two driveshaft arrangement as the 47". When I traded the 425 in on the 2210 I kept the blower. But still, I'm curious about the "out of phase" condition. With so many clickable locations on both shafts, how would I know if they were in phase or not?

Cheers

In the manual it cautions that the U-Joints should be in the same relationship to one another. That must help them flex and roll in tune.

I'm just guessing from the post here that the unit is simply noisy.

Another question - I don't find any grease zerks on the auger. Am I missing something? Do I need to dismantle it to lube it?

I've never seen a reason for a grease fitting on an auger. There should be grease fittings on the bearings on the end of the auger which support it. The (phasing) of the joints only mean that the caps all face the same direction. On most machines it is virtually impossible to have them out of line from each other.
