With winter quickly approaching I was curious if anyone ever uses a front snowblower with a rear plow. We had some awfully wet snows last year with temps hovering right around 32-33 degrees. These made for nasty snowplowing as the chute often got clogged even with vast amounts of lubricant applied. I take of two gravel driveways each about 500' long. So my thought was maybe I lose the rear ballast and install a rear plow and use that for when conditions are wet. Any thoughts?
I'm considering making the modification to the snowblower by adding rubber truck mud flap material to the impeller. This supposedly helps this problem a lot. Any thoughts on that?
Many thanks in advance.
