Augmentation for Deere Single Stage tractor thrower

I have a Deere LX277 tractor with the single stage snowthrower, and I have just encountered the idea of putting a rubber extender on the edge of the auger impeller. I know this is usually done with 2 stage machines, but I am wondering if anyone has tried it on a heavy duty single stage auger impeller like mine? The principle seems to be the same, and I wonder if it would improve my thrower's performance any? Thanks for your help.

Anything you could add to those SS Snow Throwers would help but did you measure the gap on it?

Snow Removal Apparatus I own:
Ariens ST1530DLE, and good ole arm powered scrapper.
The 15 HP is a new Ducar engine sold
by Princess Auto in Canada.

The web site for the Clarence kit actually says you can do just that. I agree it can only help.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

The gap looks like 5/8 inch, if I am measuring right.
