over the last couple of years i have heard a lot of good things about that kit. lots of snowblowers are happy with it . i don't have one for the reason of i dont want to be blowing snow into the neighbors drive and over the house i get enough distance in stock trimIf anyone has installed this kit on there machine I would llike your comment about it, how much improvement did it make and was it worth it. I have a kit here that I hope to install next week I guess I will find out soon enough.
Sure it would load the engine more but thats not always a bad thing. A motor has to do work to make hp if your running too free your not getting the max 5 hp out of the engine. With the little extra snow your going to throw and all the different snow conditions you come across you wont be able too tell very much if at all. It would only show up on your first pass on your 2nd you can adjust the bite you take. I would break it in though under no load and get away from it and shoot some water in there while its runningIm wondering if it loads the engine more. Mine is just a 5hp. Wondering if the extra snow load will over tax it.
thats kinda why i didnt get the kit. i also would like to know how it is in the sloppy wet stuff. i'll wait for your report while im sittin on my front porchI tested it this weekend. It now blows the snow into my neighbors porch! oops. it works great so far. Well worth the $6.41.
I have not tested on wet heavy snow yet so time will tell.
