If you could build a perfect blower.....

What would you have/change from today's offerings?

I'd probably Teflon coat the inside of the auger housing, the impeller, impeller housing, and chute, or make the whole thing out of non stick plastic.

Coat the parts that must be metal, use plastic where it doesn't matter.

Garage
on a honda i would do what i am doing now. putting more horses with a smaller bucket. a 1128 instead of a 1132.

also would change the right side tranny to accept a removable/replaceable pin that sometimes break and u are supposed to change the whole shaft.

reinforce the handlebars as stock. i see a lot of used Honda's with welded up bars. also reinforce the shute bottom for same reason.

would have very little plastic. the old HS50's and 80's were built better and stronger and have a lot less plastic than the newer models.

I would have a super Toro a 1124 instead of a 1128 I think 11 hp on a 24 in bucket would be my dream machine.

No guys, not modifications to existing models, from the ground up. A new "perfect" machine.

A perfect blower would come with a robot who would take care of the machine and be programmed to operate it when there is snow in the driveway without you having to do a thing. And after it was done it would go to the beer store and buy back a case of 24 for you.

Yamaha YS1028J and YT1332ED have teflon liners on the chute, impeller housing and impeller outlet.
Yes, coating the housing, impeller and augers will help a lot on wet sticky snow, but it can get pretty pricey (I myself am considering experimenting with it is some areas).

Using the Zaugg Bull dog as a power platform, I would build a smaller twin Beilhack snow clearing disc system with a center mounted chute and spout making a 48 inch single stage snow thrower eliminating a lot of issues.
All it needs is a catalytic converter for the Kubota engine to be tier four compliant.

It'll be kind of like an Ariens Platinum 24SHO (meaning power to width ratio).
