I did like Poncho62 did with the bailer belting on my single stage Bolens snowblowers, and rarely have the chute clog, even on slush. Width wise, I cut the belting wider so that it starts to wrap around the corners of the paddles, left and right. Not sure how much difference this makes, since I didn't try it narrower, but suspect it helps by not allowing the snow or slush to fall off of the sides of the paddles. I cut it a little long and trimmed it to length with a sharp knife, allowing about 1/16th of clearance between the auger housing. I can go through a slushy puddle now and it will blow the slush and water but not clog up the chute. On one blower, the paddles were quite damaged, and I bolted some 1/8 steel plates underneath the belting to back them up as a stop gap measure. That blower would hardly work with out clogging without adding the mods.
