Looks like it does a good job cleaning right to the ground. Is that an mtd snowblower. Looks very simular to one I have.

3 Ariens 522 Single Stage
Toro 3521 Repowered with a 6.5hp
Craftsman 521 (selling)


other toys
Troybuilt Horse 70s or 80s model
Troybuilt Econo-horse
John Deere Jx75
John Deere Js46
John Deere 111

and a few other parts machines.

Thanks. It is a MTD re-branded model. As I've learned more about snow blowers I found my shave plate worn out. I just want to get through this winter so I adjusted the shoes to compensate for now.

I also did the impeller mod as found on youtube.I haven't had much chance to test it though. I paid $75 for this blower back in April. I think I did pretty good on it.

Is the throwing distance in the video is from before the impeller mod?

Yes it is. I did just finish some video after the mod which I will post when I get a chance. It does OK for a 36 year old machine. One day I may upgrade to a newer one with the fancy chute control.
