See the extra auger underneath the '3 Stage---------------Drift Breaker'?

From the little experiance that I have had with blowers. It sure sounds more like a marketing gimmick than useful.

Just seen an ad the other day for a brand new Cub Cadet 3 stage snowblower.  It has a stub shaft that comes out the front of the gearbox with another auger on the front of it.  Wonder if it really helps or not?

That's the first one I've seen.  Not sure how effective that would be. I very rarely have to deal with big drifts as I am in the woods and don't get much in the way of drifting. Otherwise it looks like a good sturdy machine.

if we have to deal with drifts bigger than a couple of feet, we get out the 3pt single stage one mount to the rear of a couple 100hp tractor. I don't like playing in the snow any more and just puff it away from the comfort of the big machines.

Me too! I've lived here for 6 and a half years and I'm still waiting for my first drift.
