    I have a Sears 5 hp auger run 2 stage. When using the snow blower it will stall even with slightest amount of snow. I have a Craftsman 1 stage and it will not stall with same amount of snow. Could it be :confused: a bad spark plug or carb problem?
    Thank you

    If it is over 5 years old and the engine is a SnowKing, then change the ignition module.

    recently had a problem with ym toro snowblower much like yours turned out to be a vacum line of the carberator. Might want to check that out. It doesnt sound like the spark plug because if it was a bad plug it would be doing it constintly not only under a load
