 Woods Snowblower

I've been very pleased with all my Woods attachments on my JD 870 (FEL and 6'blade). I recently purchased a Woods 3pt snowblower and it's built like a tank but even running at the rated PTO RPM in low range, does not seem to throw snow very far. Even dry powder only seems to go 10' and wet snow clogs the chute easily causing me to curse loud enough to bother the neighbors! Before I take it back, I'd appreciate hearing from another owner?
thanks...

Any snowblower should be able to throw powder snow about 30 feet with the chute fully open. Each chute has a moveable piece at the top that determines how far it will throw it by defecting it.

Sounds like the blower is rotating too slow.

dave light powdery snow is a problem for most blowers if you are looking for distance.

The confusing part of your post is the problem with wet snow.

I am gonna shoot in the dark here and suggest a faster ground speed.

Blowers need a fair amount of material to work good. Wahct is front of your blower are you pushing a little ridge of snow? If so slow down a notch if not speed up some.

If you are uncomfortable with the backwards speed try using your scraper blade a windrow the snow then blow the windrow at a slow speed.

My fault.... it just needed more snow to work properly. Worked like a champ with a foot of fresh powder though a slight breeze returned about 5% to the operator! Cab would sure be nice.

If you have live pto, running the blower till the auger clears after stopping prevents most chute clogging. I tend to run my chute fairly open because that also will contribute to clogging. If you don't have live pto then you have to lift the blower before stopping and maybe a 'broom stick holder' on the tractor would be a good idea.

An open chute does make for more snow on the operator though and I don't have a cab either. I swore I'd get a heated snowmobile helmet this year but haven't yet. It's only a problem when the wind is from certain directions and I try to avoid cleari8ng snow when there's a wind anyway. Really bites the face when it happens. Good thing my neighbours are too far away to be disturbed. Cabs without rear window defrosters and wipers have their own problems.
