Default Tall Chute on Old School Ariens

I have been Experimenting with Different Chutes on Old School Ariens Machines. I think the Short Chute is the Only Thing the Older Machines are lacking. A bit of time with the Grinder and Welder can Transform the Throwing Status of Your Old School Ariens....

Can we see some pictures of how the welding attached the new chute?

To me that chute looks to have come off a Ariens Garden Tractor blower or perhaps a 1236 walkbehind.

I'm not sure what Model the Tall Chute Came From, Got it from a local shop. It Had the Gear-Type Flange on the Bottom which I removed by grinding the welds off. Cut the Original Down, and Welded the New Tall chute to the Old Style Base. Fit like a Glove!

What's the advantage..?? Does it make a difference in the distance it throws..??

Since so many of the newer blowers have them, there must be a reason.
Just curious...

Thanx....

A taller chute is useful for throwing over obstacles such as bushes, small fences or snow banks.

DUH....Boy, do I feel dumb...!!

I should have figured that out myself just by staring at the tall chutes a bit longer.

It's just another "Senior Moment".
They're happening more frequently every day....
It sucks getting olde...!!

Thanks, Shryp...

Not every snowblower needs one though..
In my situation, I would never have any use for such a modification..
so its not something that is necessarily "always better" than the stock short-chute..
but clearly its a good and useful mod, if you have those sorts of obstacles you need to get snow up and over..
