Impeller Kit

Forget to ask in my previous post.

I will be installing an impeller kit in my 726. It has a 4 vane auger. Do I need to install on all 4 vanes or will just two on opposing vanes suffice?

Thanks.

In my experience on an even number of impeller blades you only need 2. (you can always install the others later if you are not completely satisfied with the results, but you have to keep it balanced meaning doing in in opposite pairs).
On an impeller that has an uneven number of blades you have to install the kit on all blades to keep the impeller balanced.

I say do all four. If you don't do it initially it will never get done.I don't care what they say but 4 is better than 2 hands down. I have all 4 on my blower.

Thanks to all for the welcome and advice. Will either buy or make a set for 4 blades. If I get lazy: I'll put only 2 and keep the others for spares. Whats the best if I buy? Prefer to buy in Canada only because of the ridiculous shipping costs across the border. I often travel to New England and would buy there in person if available.
