I have a 2003 John Deere X475 and I noticed the exhaust blows on the snowblower attatchment and causes an ice problem and when too warm causes the shoot to plug. Should I divert the exhaust some how?

Welcome...I see this is your first post. I moved the question to the JD forum.

Yes, I would try and divert the exhaust away from the chute. Could be as simple of making a heat shield from a piece of metal or something similar. A picture of it would help.

welcome to the site!

A piece of thin metal about 6"x3"s, cut 2 slots in one end for a hose clamp to slide through about an inch apart, clamp it to the exhaust pipe, then you can bend it to divert the exhaust away from the chute.

I had the exact same problem with my 2720. I purchased a short piece of high temperature silicon hose from Ebay. It is used on turbos and only costs around $6. You can get them in 90-degree and 45-degree. I bought the correct diameter so I can just slip it over the end of my exhaust pipe and it diverts the exhaust away from the snow blower. You can't even tell it is on there unless you look closely.
