Chute Mods

I have seen a few pictures around the internet where people have used bent sheet metal to partly close off the front of the chute to maintain a tighter stream. Anyone here done this? Notice any improvement? Any other chute mods?

I have actually been debating combining two Ariens 10,000 series chutes for more height lately as our piles in the northeast are getting very tall. However I may just do the Impeller Kit modification and see if that helps for throwing it any higher.

I also am waiting for my armor skids to arrive which I hope else on my uneven paved driveway.

1963 Ariens 10M-L60D
1969 Ariens 10970

the taller chute would have a much more noticeable change in throwing height than the impeller kit.

I have also debated extending my chute, but it is already decently tall. The machine is a John Deere 1130SE.

I don't have an ariens but I did change the chute on my toro 521. the early 521's had short chutes of about 14" I swap it for the late model chute which is about 17" and it made the difference in how high and far it blows snow

A taller and slightly narrower chute is my next mod.

I've also got an st824, but I may be about ten years newer based on your screen name. I saw a post or a YouTube video a year or two ago about a guy doing just that type of mod. I think he took the gear ring off his chute and welded it to a newer/taller ariens chute. I am in complete agreement about liking the idea of a taller chute. I'm just about to the point where I can't blow over the tops of the piles on the sides of my driveway. Central CT has certainly not been Boston, but the last three storms in the last three weeks have dropped between 10"-20" each storm
