clogging issues and speed throwing - plastic chutes vs metal chutes
It's been discussed on here how to throw further by using a rubber impeller kit so there is less clogging of the chute. There's been talk of lining the chute with film or plastic to reduce friction. Talk that you can spray the inside of the chute with PAM, an aerosol cooking oil spray; Pledge, an aerosol furniture polish; or a spray car wax detailer. There's been discussion a longer chute will throw snow further than a shorter chute thus I would think a longer chute would have less clogging
All MY snowblowers have metal chutes except for several I picked up to sell after going through them but I am waiting for it to snow! But I am in a part of central New Jersey that does not get a lot of snow - light or deep, and it does not snow often enough for me to make comparisons.
Which chute clogs less, and throws the snow further, plastic or metal?
