Quick Easy Chute Upgrade

Did a Quick Chute Upgrade on an Ariens ST824. Probably took 15 Minutes or so with a Whizzer Wheel and a Drill. Photos are Self Explanatory. Chute was from a Noma

Nice idea to make tabs. Then if you have a welder you can give it extra support.

Now you just have to find a junk machine to get the chute from.

1986 Ariens ST522, 5hp, 22"
1995 Murray Craftsman 10hp, 29" w. 12" impeller
A 1983 Real John Deere 10hp, 32" w. 12" impeller, 16" auger, 20" high front, cast iron gear box, chains
Noma 9hp, 27" w. 12" impeller
Noma 5hp, 24" w. 12" impeller, 20" high front
Gravely Convertible, 12hp Kohler cast iron, 26" width, 600 lbs of cast iron & steel, 2 speed impeller, 4 ground speeds
Dynamark 8hp, 26", 12" impeller, for sale
Several other 5hp, 8hp, several 2 cycle, all for sale

I have a Welder, but don't really need it here . It's held on Solidly with the Bolts. Not the First Time I've used this Method. Thanks for the Interest.

Jack, did you get a chance to try it out in the snow yet?? Make any difference?? I have 2 of those NOMA chutes here and was going to try something similar. I like the height and it seems a shame to scrap them.

Thanx, Jay

Jay, I've used these before with Very Good Results. I've also used Toro Chutes, but they are a bit on the Narrow Side. Original chute was the short one with low throwing angle.
