King of Clogs

Well, I broke out my new (to me) Snow Commander I picked up a few days ago. Was about an inch and a half or so and is still coming down but I was anxious. Started right up first pull, (chose not to use electric start), and went on my way. From all the rain we received yesterday and during the night the snow was hard, heavy and verrry slushy. Every 10 feet or so the chute would clog up bad, I had to unclog it using my homemade tool. Did both elderly neighbors on either side and they both came out and offered me a coffee. I accepted, John Wayne style (BLACK).

Anyhow, is it clogging so bad due to the wet, slushy mixture or are these known for clogging this bad?

Slush is hard to run through a chute no matter the machine. You could try PAM before your outing.

I think somebody should market a specialized product for this.. just rebadge a can of Pam and charge 4x the price.. You could even call it

"I Can't Believe It's Not Clogging"

Toro 3650 (primary)
Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)
Toro 1800 electric (gone)
Shovels (and aspirin)
