The other option is sand, paint and wax.

Snow loves to stick to rough and rusty stuff.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

You can also use "PAM" cooking spray to coat the inside of the auger housing and the chute to improve it's slipperiness. Especially if it's the sloppy wet stuff, it's harder to get the impeller to push it out.

+1 on the Pam spray. You can buy he expensive stuff like silicone sprays or WD-40 or whatever. Pam works as well as anything. I buy the cheap, generic stuff and it works very well. Also, as SHRYP pointed out, clean your augers and give them a good coat of paint and then wax. There are some guys who use ski wax etc but inexpensive Pam cooking spray does great for me. I think if I did use something else it'd be pure silicone spray.

Been using the cheap cooking spray for years and it always works. By the time it wears off the whole machine has become acclimated to ambient temp and has very little snow sticking. You have to realize the auger really isn't turning all that fast and the snow up against the auger shaft is likely to stick there more than anywhere else. Also the sides of the bucket. I spray these areas pretty heavy and it really helps.

Smooth clean slick surfaces will help tremendously but If the motor is that tired rpm will go down giving the snow time to stick to everything.

Sometimes no rhyme or reason to it. I revamped an older large frame simplicity that hadn't been used in years. I did the work but wasn't going to sand and paint, the owner could do that. He didn't. That machine threw snow like no tomorrow and never clogged
