Just did the impeller upgrade....

I got about 30' of bailer belt from a buddy and Installed a couple strips on the impeller of my Ford ST726. Cant wait to see how well the snow gets thrown with them installed...

I had no idea that Ford ever made a snowblower. How old is it? Please share some details.

You must mean the impeller upgrade and it is better if you put one on each blades after all it looks like you have enough to do the upgrade for all the members here.

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

The mod certainly increases the throwing distance. It is especially improved when moving the slushy stuff at the EOD. Even water gets thrown. Nice machine!
