Parts and Warranty Information

We continued to receive calls from Dealers/Customers regarding the failure of the shear bolt drivelines used on these Snow Blower units. Engineering and a representative from the driveline manufacturer made a visit to two of the failed units to conduct further testing. They found that units used on 1,000 rpm tractors in the higher HP ranges (150 plus) could still develop enough torque load to fail the upgraded shear bolt.

Woods has decided to replace the complete drive on all 1,000 rpm units. The new drives will be a "star" profile and have a larger capacity shear bolt. The replacement part numbers are:

  • Standard (1-3/8") 1,000 rpm units = Part # 1029952
  • Large (1-3/4") 1,000 rpm units = Part # 1029953
