I don't think much of it. The guy had some trouble keeping the hardware in his hands and made the install look cumbersome and not too user friendly. Whatever happened to removing the spark plug wire before sticking your hands into the auger area? He said " The snowblower transmission is designed to push." I can't quite agree with that.. The snowblower transmission is designed to propel the snowblower. There is a difference. He also mentioned the blade being at a 45 angle. He needs to restate that to about 15-20. A sales video is supposed to convince people that they need the product. He didn't do that. It did push the slush after he got it installed but I've just used my blower to accomplish the same result.

I think buddy shouldn't give up his day job. Oh wait, I think that is his day job. Too bad for buddy. They aren't cheap either. $279 for the little one up to $329 for the big one plus shipping.

The old Ariens Track Team accessories included a lawn cart. I'm sure pushing that thing full of stone or dirt is more stress than this POS show blade.

I dont see him doing anything that you couldn't clear with a unmodified blower.
Walk for a distance with the auger off
Fill bucket with mush
Engauge auger and spray mush into neighbors yard.

cool idea but hit an uneven crack on a side walk and you might break or strip some gear teeth or replacing some shear pins. i wouldn't buy it.
