Snowthrower Service Ed 3 Reviews
If you are working on an older snowblower, this book covers the basics for repairs and adjustments. This book has great illustrations with each part identified by name, but it lacks the corresponding part numbers for the parts. A list of brands and models covered in the description would also be a plus. It doesn't cover the Gilson 835 that I bought it for, but it does have the Gilson 55012 (new model of the same machine), which helps, but there are a few differences that were made in the parts used. It still a good reference book on older machines, but part numbers would have made it a 5 star rating instead of 3.
I got better information on snowblower repair from YouTube. Sure, this was the ONLY place I could see a picture of the breakdown of MY machine 1985 Yardman Snowbird. But since there is no parts number list, I can't order anything, just see what it looks like. The repair tips are very general & not specific to each machine. Big old waste of money
Excellent source for info on maintaining & repairing snowblowers.
I think it is a good reference book. It has a lots of pictures with detail description. But you need be handy and have a good knowledge of small engine repairs. Also have some good tools will make your repair job much easier. I used this book mainly for my Honda snowblowers (HS55, and HS70). I used it to change the belts and how to adjust the belts tension. I think it is well worth $20.
We have 2 old snowthrowers that needed repair and this manual is an inexpensive how-to repair solution. I used to be able to find this type of manual at the library, but they sold all the old ones. Many times parts lists, etc are available on the internet, but it is hard to picture how different assemblies fit together.
Great manual, however, it is now outdated. This book only covers snowthrowers up to 1990. That's over 20 years ago!! It's time for a 4th Edition to cover snowthrowers built over the last 20 years.
This book has valuable information. However, it does need to be updated. It is now 10 years old and does not list the newer models.Some of the information has changed. Time for an 4th edition.
