Snow thrower craftsman 247.885570

1996 model had since new and can not keep tracks on this year. Any suggestion on adjustments would be welcomed.

I've never worked on a Craftsman snowblower but since nobody else jumped in here are some of my guesses.

Is the track running over rubber tires? If so have you checked the air pressure in the tires?

If the track runs on steel sprockets make sure there is no debris clogging the track pockets. Also check to make sure that no teeth have broken off of the track sprockets.

I assume there is a track tension adjustment. It may be too loose.
