Toro 1232 Power Shift Snowblower

CFan anyone help me with this beast? The locfal shop did a horrible job in attempting to repair this unit even though I was charged over $300. It just burns me! The Power shifting is extremely jerky and does not always work. It just broke its cfhain link, right when the whole nation has its eyes on our cfmall city Oswego,NY with almost 100 inches ofc snow the past few days. I put the link on but now only one wheel engages. Have you ever tried to snow blow over 50" with only one wheel engaging! UGHHH. Can I get some advicfe opn how to check and repair this and then to hopeully repair this unit so that it shifts smoothly through the gears and the Power shifct works as it is supposed to? With one wheel off and upside down it seems like a lot of play in this power shift mechanisum. Is this normal also. Thanks again

The wheels are linked into the drive axle with there retaining pins which you probably just had it shear off. remove the wheel, clean out the hole and replace with proper size pin. Shift controls probably just need some lube sprayed on them.​

Thanks but it wasnt that simple. Anyway I finally got rid of the POS and now only restore Yamaha snowblowers from the 80-s and 90's. These machines will blow the doors off of any Toro! In fact the 5hp and 6hp models will more than double how far it blows snow compared to the toro. Honestly members on this forum should really check these machines out!
The 8hp model is an absolute beast!
