First Series Upgrades Vid

Did an Impeller Seal, and Chute Upgrade on a First Series I have. Throwing Angle is Like Night and Day. The Vid is of a Few Inches of Frozen Snow.
I used a Craftsman Chute I had kicking around.

Very nice. Would love to see it with some decent snow but Mother Nature doesn't always cooperate.

Impeller seal, taller chute and a Predator - better than some NEW machines. Nice job Jack.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)
Toro (51984) Hand Held Blower (For the light stuff)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Was that a bolt on for the chute Jack? What Craftsman did it come on?

It looks like a mid to late 90s Murray-made chute. It was most recently discussed here and here

Sears went cheap in the early 2000s and went with a shorter plastic chute instead. I've snagged a few of the earlier Craftsman snowblowers if they are cheap enough, just to scavenge those metal chutes.

Garage
agree

I have two exact same Honda HS80's. One with impeller kit and one without. a couple weeks ago we had about 4 inches of wet /slushy snow. One blower was practically useless and the other threw snow 10-15 feet.

every blower gets a kit now.

Craftsman Chute, DB130 Called it.... My Welder Needs a New Feed Cable, so I did a "Bolt On" Installation. Toro Powershift Chutes are Do-able as well.

Cool jack...like the chute mod. and vid.! Look forward to your next vid. when we get a good strom around here.

Too funny I just finally just got an impeller kit and have a newer Simplicity long Chute to be put on so the small white chute will be gone soon. Look forward to installing impeller kit but was wondering if you guys have recommendations in your installing one???? Very appreciative fellas on any feed back or suggestions/tips you've encountered installing one(impeller kit)!!!!
