Shear bolts, also called shear pins, are the one crucial consumable you should have on hand to keep a Murray snowblower running. Sometimes its tought to find the right shear bolt for your Murray snow blower, as each model uses a specific bolt, both in the size of the bolt and the location of the scores on the bolt.
For those that are not familiar, shear bolts (aka a shear pin) is a bolt that has score on it. These shear pins are designed to fail on the score lines when the force on the bolt meets the manufacturing threshold as opposed to the damage happening to the machinery itself. If you are removing snow from a gravel driveway or are prone to items under the snow ( such as newspapers), stock up on these consumables!
