Shawn,I have a LA145 with 44" snowblower which has been working excellent. However, I missed a snowfall this weekend that was quite slushy, which immediately froze. I used salt on it and melted most of it but now there is a lot of pieces of ice over the driveway. It just snowed again and I am concerned that the blower will pickup ice and damage the auger or chute. Will it hurt anything?
I believe that your snowblower is safe. In the past when this happened the pieces that broke off were small enough to just pass right on through. Take it slow at first until it sounds right.
Be sure to wash the snowblower and tractor as soon as possible after working salt.
