Ariens Metal Chute - Any Clogging Issues?

Hi all still on the fence on Ariens and Toro. Previously blower I used had a plastic chute like the Toro and only on one occasion during a very wet snow did I have to clear the chute and just once. However I did notice that every time I used it by the time the job was finished snow would be stuck to all metal surfaces like the auger blades and wheels.

Has me a bit worried on the metal Ariens chute, is this a pretty common problem? Mostly get dryer snow but a couple wet snows a year. Thank you!

My Ariens 30" has a metal chute and I have no problem with it especially since I have installed an impeller kit 2 years ago.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

Until it breaks. Make sure you keep your little Toro joystick protected from things falling on top of it.
