impeller

Is it normal that the housing around the impeller gets so scratched up plowed about a foot yesterday of fluffy snow although we have had temperatures minus 30 40 here in Montreal and the city plow passed by at driveways end it was a real mixture of snow ice real garbage my CC 3X plowed right through it no problem but today having just wiped her down of salt and elements i noticed the housing where the impeller is is scratched like as if something was caught in there and just turned and scratched i did not break any shear pins like i said she threw great i guess it must be the garbage at driveways end the mixture of pretty much everything. just seems they are more deeper than a scratch.

when the impeller goes round and round it is a thrashing machine in those parts. so yes it is going to get beat up fast.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

You're churning up Ice, road debris, small stones, cinders and etc. and they are spinning at a pretty good rate. It's going to take a bit of beating in the impeller area. My snowblower has almost no damage due to the fact it only blows just snow. No EOD problems since the plows angle their blade to the center of the street.

Must be nice to live in a place where you blow VIRGIN SNOW.

If you have a stone or gravel driveway. Raise up the auger assembly, this will keep some stones from tearing up the impeller housing.

It sure is, Todd! With that 30' wide center tree lawn I never have to worry about EOD stuff.
