Impeller kit

Since i'm the new guy to snowblowers and a bit green. I hear this
talk of impeller kits. Never seen one, Have a vague idea as to what
it will do. Where can one buy this kit and are they universal to fit
any blower. How difficult to install and are there any pic's on this site.
I looked a bit but found nothing yet.



Thanks Lee

Lots of us have made our own kits out of baler belt material and small pieces of steel. Not at all hard to make but not the most fun to install. Not complicated, just not fun.

It's easy to make your own. I used a worn single stage rubber edge.

Thanks guys, looks like a very simple job and easy to make.

One question, Doe's the rubber fold over the impeller or just
till it hits the housing. hard to tell in the pic's.

Thanks Lee

Just put it so it barely touches the housing.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

how do you install it? do you remove the impeller from it or do you install it through the outlet?

I have done 3 MTD installs through the chute opening. New or sharp drill bits make the job easier.

Prior to fastening, It helps to clamp it to the impeller and rotate it to find the tightest spot in the housing.

SNOWBLOWER IMPELLER KIT
Just curious....About how thick is the Baler belt you guys have used?

I know there is a guy on you tube who used self tapping screws but I would not recommend that on something that spins so fast, is in a high rust and abrasive environment.

Use at least a 1/4 bolts with nylock nuts. Grade 8 or Stainless steel if you can. They are less apt to rust and are much tougher.
