SO-Snowblower jammed by newspaper-how to get out? (pics)

Today I spent about one hour clearing off the driveway. Only five feet to go and the snowblower jammed with a screech.

What was that?

Turns out our suburban weekly picked today to give us a free copy, throwing it in the driveway which was covered with eight inches of snow.

I managed to get half of the paper out, but of course the part in the back is jammed tight.

What to do? I'd like to set it on fire but that's probably not the brightest idea.

Thanks in advance for all of your serious and helpful answers.

Can you poke it back through the blades from the top with a stick?

Yeah, good luck with that!



And good luck with fixing your snow-blower, too.

Can you hook up a hose to an inside water faucet (use warm water) and make it a wet soggy mess. Newspaper has terrible "wet strength" so it would be easy to pick out then. Unfortunately, the water will freeze somewhere and make a big mess, but maybe you could drag it to side of garage or something.

The paper is compacted so tight it doesn't want to move. It's dark now, but in the AM I may try and long screwdriver. But that thing is tight.

I was thinking about getting it wet just didn't want to since it was so cold. That may be the thing to do. I need some "newspaper dissolvin' liquid".

I also am a little wary about sticking my hand in there. I don't think it's going to do anything when it's unjammed but I don't want to lose a finger or hand.

You could have some tension stored in a belt or something, so it could move an inch or so when it frees up. I'd approach it in a way that considers that possibility (ie with a stick or screwdriver).

You might add a little detergent, it contains a wetting agent which will help water soak in, and it will make everything slippery. Actually, is it positioned so a couple of pails of warm soapy water would mostly wet the paper?

I'll try to add the detergent. I think that I could get most of it wet with some buckets of water. Once it's soaked it should absorb into the paper.

My solution:

two full buckets of hot water mixed with automatic dishwasher detergent (about a cup per bucket). Why this type? No suds and rinses more easily. After pouring in first bucket, let soak for a few minutes then dig at paper clump with something sharpish (like your long screwdriver) and clear out as much as you can. After second bucket, repeat and the clump should be all gone. Rinse out with clean water and inspect the blades and the shaft for bends (if the shaft is bent more than just a tiny bit it will have to be replaced).

First get really drunk, then reach in and pull...finally have your s/o drive you and your bloody stump to the hospital.

It happens more than you would think.

I mentioned the fire in my first post, but hate to do such a thing anywhere near a gas tank. Plus it's so cold I don't think the matches would stay lit.

I think the plastic above would be okay.

hey don't be selfish, you should be thinking what is best FOR us..

So you need two helpers, one to take pics and the other to constantly try to restart the blower (so you know for sure it free and clear of the jam) as you take both hands and try to tug and pull a burning mass of news paper out of a gas soaked snow blower...

or if you want to be selfish, the water soaking sounds like a good idea.. With really hot/boiling water it's not going to freeze again that quickly and wet news paper should just poke right now. Sep with those sort of blades I'm not sticking my hand down there.. screw driver ect should work..

It's always good to ask your friends for help. Close friends, friends who like to 'chip' in when needed.

That's what you get for being uppity and not using your shovel.




The water/detergent combo sounds like a great idea.

And please don't put your hand in there, it could affect your typing.

Power drill.

That should loosen that paper right up.



I wouldn't use fire....any spilled gas and your snow blower will go up in flames!

I have not tried to work it out yet. Visited my place of worship, came home for a quick lunch then I'm away for the day.
