As the title states I have a John Deere 1023e and currently have the snowblower attachment on it. The other day we were hit with some decent snow fall and finally was able to break out the snow blower. However I was at work for 48 hours and my wife decided that she would be awesome wife and snowblow our driveway. Sadly she got the tractor stuck somehow and then somehow broke the tractor. She did a very good job because I currently am not able to get it back together. The part I believe that she broke is the upstop drive shaft on the snow blower. I thought I could just slide it back on but I have struggled to get into back on. I have attached photos of the damage and would like to know if it is able to be reattached or do I just have to eat the cost and buy a new one.
