There is a lot of info online about this modification and a few different recipes to do it. But more specifically has anyone here done this on 44/47 blower on x300/x500 series and If so any tips on how you did it? Might be a good time of year to revive this topic as the first snow looms… I have a X580 with 44 blower and a new gravel laneway. The lane will be paved in the spring, we are letting it settle for a winter before asphalt goes on. So this will be one winter mod for me to hopefully keep too many stones from shredding the inside of my blower and getting all over the lawn. Anyone done this little trick successfully?
