Curious to see how well yours works. I have an older model of the same unit (probably early 90's vintage) it maybe at best can move snow 10ft. Trying to find the reason why but without snow it is kind of difficult. I measured a brand new ones clearance inside the impeller housing and the new ones have 1/2" clearances as well which I guess is due to the housing not being round inside. Of course on the new ones QA might be much better. Buhler says it has to be my tractor.. HANo hydro for the snowblower, the wind generally blows the same direction all the time. We'll see what happens, no snow yet.
