Especially with the chute being "Canadian Chromed". Chrome in a can lays on thick and smooth! Hopefully it is durable enough to handle a few rocks - i did prep well and self etch prime so we shall see.

I read some where, that the more paddles on the impeller, the less hp it takes to run it. Gearing helps a lot also. I played with the ratios between the cog at the impeller and the drive source, which slowed down the impeller, but threw just as far. The way is was, is the engine would slow down and you would have to slow up the tractor or stop to let the engine rev back up. The ratio change in the cogs stopped that. Now the tractor travels at what ever speed for the conditions, engine speed stays constant. Big difference in tractor engine performance and less gas to operate.
I did the ratio change a few years ago, the new impeller was last year. I am hoping for some improvement on the blower that I am working on now. It's my sons.

Shoot me a pm when you test your improvements I would love to know what combination of impeller blades and gearing is the most successful. Looks like your well on your way to becoming the snowblower afficianado, good work! Thanks for sharing the Intel, always nice to have someone willing to go the extra mile and share their work with us plebes. Eric.
After last winters record snow fall Noel is well on his way to a masters degree in snow blowing. Nice work on the snow blower mods Noel.
