Chute Radius

Here is a picture of a screen grab from a repair video. Showing the "dogs" to trim....I am thinking 1/3 of whats there?? Is this too little, or too much?
Anyone?

I trimmed about 2/3 of the dogs off. Just a little at a time with a Dremel, checking chute swing often.
Works great!

I took the whole dog off. The chute will contact the upright support post so I added rubber pads to dampen it. And, I had to bush-whack the guard a bit too. Maximum rotation!

Ariens Chute Radius

This message is actually meant for Kielbassa.....however hopefully it may help someone else as well. Try as I might, I could not send this to him via private message, so I decide to do it this way. He and I have been discussing methods to tighten the chute radius, and this is how I am going to try it....but as of today I have not done it. In theory, it looks like it should work.
