Any snow blower suffers when it doesn't have enough volume of snow to fill the auger (or when the snow is heavy and wet). In the first half of the video, he had to drive slower as he was working around a vehicle. Plus, there wasn't a ton of snow to move compared to the volume that the auger can hold without spilling over. However, once he was on the long drive, you can see it was throwing a good 30 feet (03:20) because he was filling the auger.great video, but it looks like 3 inches of snow compared to your front tire and the JD snowblower is weak throw distance for the heavy price..
I think it did a great job thanks for the video.It really was 10 inches. The area by my driveway gets shielded by the house so it gets less. I am very pleased with the machine overall, the throw is fine for me. My honda standalone threw much better but it wasn't fun doing 1000feet with a 36" hand machine so for me the JD wins by far.
