To keep all units working properly, long and reliable, it’s important to maintain and properly handle your snow blower in a timely manner. Foreman tools are easy to use and low maintenance. You can read how to do this in the manual that comes with each GST model.
Choice of fuel and oil for the snow “slasher”
GST snakeskin “foreheads” are shipped without oil or fuel in the tanks. Before starting any operation, it is necessary to check the availability of fluids. If they are missing or insufficient, you must bring the oil and gasoline levels up to the required level. Otherwise they will cause frequent and serious breakdowns.
As fuel for the “brigadier” GST is recommended to use fresh, high-quality gasoline with an octane number of at least 90. The most suitable option is AI-92.

After work, it is recommended to change the oil completely and to work in the maximum mode.
The main deformities of the snow blower and their elimination
- Lack of engine starting and poor performance can be associated with a lack of fuel in the tank, or I its poor quality. Try replacing the gasoline with fresh gasoline. It is also recommended to check the spark plugs, the fuel hose for clogging, and the position of the control lever.
- If you feel increased vibration during operation, the auger may be damaged or clogged, fixing elements are addressed.
- Difficulties in the work of the snow blower can be associated with jammed wheel drive or improperly stretched, worn or reduced belts.
- In this case, if the auger does not start rotating after the engine starts, a foreign object may be clogging it. Also, a broken split screw, a stretched or torn drive belt, or an improperly tightened drive sorso could be the cause.

Vitaly, 44, ripped
“I bought a GST 55 Pro Arab just for the cottage. Sometimes it was very expensive not to row with a shovel, not an option. The price really satisfied me. For such money I got good equipment at all, which can only be used during the day. And, perhaps, this is the only disadvantage. In winter we often have fog. But how do I work in the evening? “” “
Igor Vladislavovich, 56, Perm
“My usual snowman parted and I had to repair it for a long time. At this point it was necessary to clean the yard with something and I bought the “Pro Arab” GST 60. A good budget model. I liked the block of electricity and the fact that you can choose the zone of snow throwing. Lighting, of course, not enough, but it is not very critical.
Instructions for choosing a snow blower + evaluation Prorab GSt71S
Good afternoon. Today we will talk about the snow blower for the garage. Basically, there is not much information on the Internet on this subject. I will try to systematize everything I could read. To begin with: 1. One-Day. This type works as follows. It has a rapidly rotating auger that performs three functions simultaneously: – Racing snow into the emission chute. – Snow into the gutter – advancing the snowmobile – yes, even though it has no wheel drive, it still drives! To perform these functions, the auger spins very fast and is usually made of plastic or rubber. These snow blowers are not suitable for garage cleaning for the following reasons: – Narrow and low snow grip. – The small swing of the exchange. – Even a little compacted snow is already a problem for you. But if you have some snow and you clear it regularly, you can take it. The advantage of these snow grabbers is clearing snow – you can clean surfaces for paving, for example, with them. At the same time, such a snow machine does not disturb the tiles themselves, as its auger is soft. Here are examples of such snow blowers: gasoline electric
2. Two snow blowers. Here, the snow is thrown in two steps. First: the auger is enough to stir the snow. The second stage: the snow blower throws the snow through a channel. Typically, this technology already exists with a wheel drive. This is probably the largest group of snowball players. How they may differ: 1. Drive – Rad – Gussenic 2. Type of stage equipment – with starter / without starter – with battery / without battery (starter runs on the socket) – with headlight / without headlight 3. Control – with fixation – with fixation pins (very convenient)/without fixation – with control of snow direction from the operator’s seat, especially with the Chinese. 4. Because of the type of wheel drive – with differential / without it – if you often have to turn, then the thing is really useful. 5. Translation – Step – Step – Step – Variator in the secret is not, I will say that you all have a hard disk variator (I will show below in the photo), the only difference in speeds in it, or lack thereof. 6. Exhaust – the more the better. 7. And above all the brand. Depending on the brand, the same models can cost up to 3-4 times. In theory we should get more quality, more service, more resources for more money, but unfortunately it does not work for us… In fact, you can only find out about quality by trying a particular product in person.
3. There are also attachments for power tillers, but I have not read anything about them, as I do not have a walking tractor.
Having mastered the above information, I proceeded to choose a two-stage snow blower. I will say right off the bat that I need to examine the lowest price category. This is the category under 40 thousand. All the reviews and reviews basically boil down to the following: 1. Bought it – see how cool it is. The maximum the reviewer can tell you is the features from the passport. 2. The second type of reviews are clearly paid for. You will also not see anything interesting for yourself …..
The only option is to test this or that model yourself. I can tell you specifically about the model I bought for myself. I will try to make it as informative as possible. And I decided for myself – pointing my finger in the sky. I chose it because it is the most powerful in its price range – 7 hp.
So, let’s go: It came in such a box:
In theory it was enough to put off the preservative, fill it up with normal oil and go to war – and so we did, but it was a wreck. The snowman refused to go. When I read the manual, I got the real impression that there was a real manual transmission in 4th gear. Words like “shifts only when standing”, “flickers only when the clutch is released”, etc. Except I never saw the oil filler neck in the box. Okay, take off the palette and what do we see there? Just a regular variator:
And here’s the cause of the malfunction – wrong cable routing:
We run the cable like this and put it back together – but not for long The snowman started to twitch and vibrate, when the drive analyzes it, we see the following:
To solve the problem we need a sparking belt from a truck. It is necessary that the profile is as high as possible. I found one at a store (gee whiz):
Then we cut it to length and put it between the window halves and grease it well with a six-pack in the process:
By the way, because of the grease, you just won’t get it anywhere – it’s a pinion, and you can tell by it that the grease never went through it:
I bought this grease syringe:
But when I turned the grease fitting back on, it broke because. made extremely poorly, not only is the wrench an 11, it also doesn’t hook on the end… I unscrewed it with pliers and broke it. I had to screw a syringe directly into the reducer and pump grease into it (first unscrew the bolts from the bottom so the grease would go somewhere). Once the grease appears from the bottom, that’s enough:
Here’s a short video showing how it works:
Well, my opinion. Basically, for the price, the equipment is just FIRST, assembled pretty well, we didn’t find a single bolt that wasn’t tightened, but you still have to put your hands on it. You should at least do the following: – Lubricate the wheel drive gears. – Put grease in the worm gears. – Adjust the belt tension. – Adjust the wheel and auger drive clutch springs.
I have been using it for 3 months now – it is well worth the money and very helpful, in short, I can recommend it for purchase without hesitation, but only if you have a straight hand. If you are not tech savvy then this is not for you, look at models from better known brands that can provide better service!
