    I think your write up was actually a strong kick off to a potential series of articles about this snow blowers. A lot of bloggers pretend to understand what they’re talking about when it comes to this topic and in reality, nearly no one actually get it. You seem to really dominate it though, so I think you ought to start writing more. Thanks a lot! for writing about snow blowers

    I own a JD 1130SE and like the snowthrower. It has handled the 33 plus inches of snow here in MN this Dec. My only complaint is that the halogen lamp burns out in about 2 seconds after being replaced. Dealer not able to help.

  3. iam having the same problem with my snow blower,I have the same one.

  4. Does anyone have a solution to this problem of the halogen light burning out? Have not seen this one before.

  5. Me too 2008 model 1130se i think its the voltage regulator?

  6. […] […]

  7. Has anyone had an issue with the snowblower cutting out soon after starting snow blowing

  8. The snow blower keeps choking out numerous times during snow blowing….minimum snow……restarts (sometimes), runs and then does it again…changed oil, gas, etc. fairly new….only used approx. 5 times over last 2 years. Today, seemed to bogg out when the amount of gas was at approx. 3/4 of a tank….filled ran better, bogged out…sprayed carb cleaner, primed, etc. in order to keep running, needed to keep depressing primer to keep running?????? any thoughts????

  9. Sounds like you left old gas in your gas tank too long. You will need to clean the carb and filter and put new gas in the tank

  10. My husband said make sure you do not touch the light bulb use shop rag when removing from package and replacing.

    Also try replacing the gas cap we had the problem and bought a $6.00 vented cap and the problem went away.

  11. 1130SE..Drive slips after 15-20 minutes of operation. After that, it comes back intermittently. Had it into the shop twice. They said there’s nothing wrong with it. This machine only has an estimated 20-25 hours on it. Spec states that there is no adjustment for the drive belt. Belt looks ok but can’t tell if there is any stretch in it. Adjusted traction drive cable Friction disc’s look ok. Please, if you have any ideas let me know. Thank you…

  12. I had a similar problem on an older machine. One of the bushings was worn causing the shaft that supported the friction disc to be misaligned and not make proper contact. It is unlikely that yours is having the same problem. Check that the belt tightener is actually tightening enough. Also sounds like something is heating up, expanding and causing slippage, Look for anything that seems to be getting hot. Let us know what you find.

  13. Thanks very much for your comments. I found out that those machines have a history of slippage due to the exposure of the friction wheel to moisture and that a seal kit was produced to better isolate the area. Machines still under warranty could have it installed, if requested, free of charge. Those units out of warranty must unfortunately absorb the costs.

  14. I have had the same issue since day one on my 2009 1130SE! I have to repeatedly clean the metal disc. The dealer’s response was that too much grease was put into the bearing holding the rubber wheel. I see no evidence of this. They cleaned the metal disc. I keep cleaning it myself now. I think that the rubber used on the small wheel(should have been replaced by the dealer)which contacts the metal disc is not of the proper compound and consequently because of the heat generated from friction, gets soft and adheres to the metal disc. I think that I will replace it. I find that when the machine starts to slip I shift into the next speed which is of coarse puts the rubber wheel into another spot on the metal disc…..it works for awhile!
