Kiss4aFrog That Predator upgrade should give you all the power you need to chew it up and spit it out

Poker4me007 Here in Western Ma. we got about 6 inches of some sticky/slush snow. The old snowaway did pretty good though, with the impeller paddle upgrade. Can't wait to see what she does in powder.


I didn't take the pictures so there not that good.

Last night, and this morning:

But it was my first snowblower, so it will always have a special place in my heart, and the geared transmission was unstoppable (no friction disk to slip), especially with chains. Sadly, the 5hp Briggs kinda let it down.

Thank's
The internet sure does make it easier to get parts for machines as old as these, I still can get bearings and other parts that wear out at https://www.ereplacementparts.com/se...lower%20990869

I got the machine for nothing 5yrs ago and the 5 hp Briggs was just about dead, it did die (during first snow storm) with a loud backfire. With a friend's suggestion I repowered it with a 8hp predator, runs great.I'm hoping the paddle upgrade will make the machine throw the heavier snow better.
It's a well built machine thick steel (heavy duty) I like it.

Sno-Away impeller paddle upgrade

I put some 1/4" flat steel to beef up the rubber paddles. I'll see this winter if it throw's the snow better (mainly the slushy stuff).You can see in the picks that they used to bend fairly easy.
