the old modded ariens

got to try out this years mods on the vintage ariens in real world conditions...two days in a row, but very different snow conditions. ( new mods.....extra tall chute, drilled out main jet and rpms upped to +/- 4000, the machine also has the impeller mod). yesterday was 20-25 cm of powder, no problems with that stuff. today was 10-15 cm of heavy wet crap......the machine seemed to enjoy it more than i did, throwing it an easy 10 meters. before the latest mods i would have gotten about 2/3 of that distance.
quite happy with spending the $20 for the machine with a blown tech, adding the $150, 208 cc clone and doing some free mods. i truely cant foresee any conditions that "orange crush" will clog or otherwise not perform in.
