Speaking of 36 snow blowers, I just blew out one of the small gears on the bottom of my blower right in the middle of a storm. Good thing I have another 112h with a snow plow. It saved the day. I was able to get my wife off to work. WHEW!!!! The blower is useless without it. It becomes a unit to part out. Luckly I found a JD dealer in New Haven Ct that could get the gear. $68 each. I bought 2 b\c without them, unit is no good. There are 2 of the same gears, one on top and one on bottom.
