Modified chute

I finished modifying the newer chute from Honda. I added UHMW plastic lining and collar. I liked the idea when I saw it on the Yamaha’s.

Nice work, Where did you source the UHMW and what thickness, May try that on a Ariens I will be rebuilding for next year.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

No sign of the chute clogging, if it were to clog, today would be the day. It’s mostly due to the impeller kit my friend Dan from this site has fabricated.

@John445

I'm a tad confused now. Doesn't the rubber at the bottom in these pics essentially recreate the same chute design issue the new design was supposed to eliminate?

No, totally different angle more parallel to the flow, like the Yamaha as he said. Looks like a great solution! I was going to attach the UHMW with velcro strips, but I like what he's done. I think I may use DZUS fasteners for quick removal.

Lining looks good. My concern would be how well the adhesive holds up. Yamaha has the mechanical attachment and the one piece molded liner that I wish every manufacturer would adopt.

Not sure what the benefit is. I have the new chute and so far I have not had the old clogging issues nor have I noticed any snow being thrown any differently. When you added this mod, what changed for you?

Ive had modified collar and peel and stick 1/32" UHMW in my chute for a couple years.

I sealed the edges of the material with clear RTV. Works like a charm, holds up great.
