Rooster tail envy

While doing some research, I came upon this video of a re-powered Ariens, with a 22hp engine. Very impressive performance.

My 13/32 can certainly toss the snow, but that abomination there is absolutely incredible.

...well I guess I know what I'm doing for my next project

I wish the augers on my Craftsman spun that fast. Is there a way I can speed them up?

Detd.. Video will come once snow gets here. It was like that last year with the 32" tear-drop bucket- We'll see if any improvement with the later style 6-blade bucket I just finished. I only have 3 of the 6 blades with rubber kit on- may need all 6 but we'll see. I lined the tall part of chute with stainless steel too so that should help minimal. I'm running @ 3400-3500 rpm on the big Honda (playing it safe)- might bump up the r's little or increase engine pulley- But I think I'm at 3.5 (maybe 3.25-can't recall)- One concern is the later bucket has a partial block on opening to chute.. never really got answear for it's purpose or if it hurts discharge at all? must be due to the extra blades? I'm trusting the engineers knew what they were doing far more than my opinion. I think one needs to also be concerned to not over-rev the gearbox or asking for disaster.. don't know where that line is though.

I don't like looking at those vids, because I was a drag racer and street racer back in 1980-90's, and can be a competitive SOB...it may get too tempting, inviting, and get my gander up, and lose control- I'll be bolting a $5,000 V8 to a Gilson, and trying to chuck snow into the next township from my front yard...
and expecting a trophy or major award or cash purse payout....

on a more sober note, the beauty of the old blowers is, feeding one cylinder with a one barrel carb-very thrifty on gas- rather than many cylinders....

but I admit, have been thinking of putting (2) carbs and custom 2-1 barrel intake on a Tec or Briggs just to see what happens ! would that be a rat-rod snowblower then ?




just say NO to Chinese made ANYTHING !

Go for it GWB! what ya got to loose (but time and money)? - In the day, I always heard there was no substitute for HP and torque.. guess that may not be totally true really but fun following that assumption. Just make sure you got 'forgiving' neighbors when you put your driveway snow up on their roof.
