    2015 D170 engine racing after using the snow blower attachment for 1 hr

    Engine began to race while using snow blower attachment and no response from throttle lever. I was about 45 mins into using the snow blower on fine powder- 4 inchs deep. After turning off for a few mins it returned to normal operation. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    It really sounds like the snow got around the governor and froze. Letting it sit allowed the snow to melt. Just a guess.

    Thanks for the insight...there was some snow accumulated in front of the engine.
