Chute clearing shovel

Last time I used my blower, the snow was very wet, stuck to the augers, caused massive vibration. I was so , so tempted to reach in and clear it, but having at one time worked with a guy who did the same thing, and now has fewer fingers than he was born with, I didn`t. Just received chute shovel, about $12 from Home Depot. Has all the attachment hardware ,now feel safer and better prepared . My machine , BTW, is Toro Powermax , 2 stroke, 2 stage, still impressed with it .

Even if all you have is a 2' piece of PVC it's still the way to go.
