I LOVE the impeller mod, I did it on my old 622 snapper and helped tons, Then I got the Ariens 1027 and planned to do it but too many other things and now my latest keeper to replace the Snapper is a Ariens Sno-Tek 24" getting very modded with a 254cc engine, 15" tires and yes I will be putting the impeller mod on but may happen in the spring as both Ariens work and throw very well and have yet to get a clog but will be doing it to both nonetheless.
Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
