So I have been reading the other thread about the 54" blower, and got to thinking. I recently purchased a 1025R with a snow blower and went to look at it and it has the plastic impeller on it. I will only be using it when necessary, mostly be using the 60" plow. But when I need it, I'll really need it as it can really dump here. Would it be in my best interest to upgrade to the steel impeller now? From what I've been reading, a lot of people have a lot of negative opinions of the plastic impeller.
We just moved into this place, first thing I did was to clean out all the big rocks from the driveway and spread out about 30 yards of 1 1/2" minus down the driveway. Got it nice and smooth, ready for plowing/snow blowing this winter. I should not be having a lot of rocks in the impeller, but you know some gravel will be making it's way through it at some point.
Kind of looking at upgrading the impeller and doing the "supercharge" mod with the rubber strips to be ready for the inevitable heavy snow falls that can happen around here.
