MTD Snowblower Auger Problem

Hi everyone,
I have an MTD snow blower. My augers do not engage. The drive shaft spins but the augers don't move. All belts are fine and the augers just spin freely. The impeller spins, but just not the augers. Any ideas why or how to fix it.

Sounds like you have broken the shear pins. Look at the augers and you should see 1 or 2 bolts on each. If not, you should see empty holes. You will need to get your model number, go to your local snowblower dealer and get shear pins.
DO NOT USE REGULAR BOLTS!!! Shear pins are soft and made to break so you do not take out the gears. Shear pins-$2 ea. Gear-$88.
