wonder if I'm the only one?

Just a little tibit I've thought about off-on for awhile.. The front page of the site here shows the Ariens Snowblower which is a superb machine but has a 'Hammer' clamped to it rather than the un-clogging gizmo? I know better, but my first thought is: Does that machine need a hammer to 'beat, on it to keep it going or to get it un-stuck? Like I said I know better and own a couple Ariens blowers but just thought it was kind of funny my initial thought

You are correct. That does appear to be a claw hammer. You are a very observant individual.

I have not observed that detail. I always saw the Ariens up there, but never really looked at it.

Maybe it's an intimidation device. Beating the snow into submission?

I'm not sure I would have ever noticed that if you didn't tell me.
I suspect it must be neighbor related

It may be used in conjunction with this.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Maybe it's for when you "nail" the throttle?
