This kind of thing wants me to scream and start building small high horsepower single stage walk behinds somewhat like the motomower snowshark.

The motomower snow shark was set up with a chain drive for the impeller and the twin augers as they were rotating in the forward direction at two different speeds of rotation. I do not remember off hand whether it was a single speed snow blower or not like the old 2 stage Yardman snow blowers but I believe they were also set up with a low speed chain drive for the wheels.

The snow shark was simple to build, simple to maintain and the snow pack was metered into the impeller with the
slower speed of the upper and lower augers that fed a small amount snow per revolution into the impeller.

The discharge impeller faced forward and threw the snow pack up and out of the chute which was smaller in diameter, the impeller had a smaller paddle width and also had a faster speed of rotation to discharge a smaller amount of snow at a greater speed like the impellers on the Japanese snow blowers and the Zaugg track drive snow blowers.

My dear father inlaw lost parts of his right hand fingertips as he was tired having come home from work late after sorting mail during overtime and neglected to shut the ariens that he owned off to unplug it.

For what it's worth, our Shark had a 2 speed geared transmission. There was a lever with, iirc, a black ball on it down low on the chassis that you could shift with your foot.

Agree 99%, some warnings may be good , most are ''dumb'' and stupid and utterly un-necessary . YES One can place his fingers in harms way with any machine ..and, if careful enough - ''get away with it ''.

Yes, I stuck my fingers into the augers years before I owned one. My dog rope had gotten wrapped up in the contractor's snow machine and I decided to unstick it. I wondered why the contractor was not doing it himself and soon found out when the auger moved suddenly and took off the skin on my knuckle. Nothing serious, but it could have been a lot worse. Now that I have a snowblower in the garage, I also have a broomstick and a plastic shovel to remove anything. I'll bring the machine inside the garage and let it melt out if needed now.

I always feel bad for stick figure guys. They sacrifice their body to get their point across to use "Common Sense"....

LOL
