Hello. First Post new user to site here. I just picked up this old Ariens 4 HP single stage snow blower. I like old stuff like this i guess cause i am old lol. I didnt have much chance to service it, but changed oil and fired it up and tried it out. The snow was not very deep about 3 inches. It was very wet snow. This poor old blower only threw it about 1 foot lol. I don't know if it will do better in lighter snow. The chute kept jamming up and it stalled out a couple times so i didnt want to beat it up. I like this old machine. I did get some of it cleared but it started raining and made it much wetter. Never saw snow heavier. I shoveled it and am tired lol. Please advise. Thank you!
