I never thought of putting wheels on the front of a single stage to protect the plastic scraper bar! And making the wheels adjustable. I have though of putting a strip of metal on the plastic scraper bar.

Yup, I think those wheels are an interesting idea, but flawed, given that:

- the paddles need to touch the ground for the machine to pull itself forward
- the paddles need to touch the ground to clear all the way down to pavement



Now, they *could* be useful if you deliberately wanted the paddles to stay above the surface, like maybe you have gravel, or something like that.
