on most garden tractors, this heat is from the exhaust and cooling fins on the engine. It blows right at the thrower/blower chute and warms it. Making slush on the chute and top of thrower/blower. Any body ever have trouble with this, and if the chute was cold, so it would not melt the snow, would it throw farther ?
Have any of you ever redirected the heat away from the chute, and if you did, how did you do it ?

Just another foolish question I am wondering about !!

I was wondering the same thing on the 195 LGT. Have only used the blower for about 15 minutes; so I don't know the answer. It never plugged up during this time. I have a piece of sheet metal ready to make a heat shield if necessary.

I have had a different problem with my JD 212 with the snowblower. I get snow coming into the motor area from the grill. So I put a piece of cardboard in front on the grill. No more snow on the motor.

You could put a piece cardboard on the front of your grill and see if it helps.

good luck and stay warm

I don't have a problem with the heat affecting the operation of the blower. My problem is if I don't get that slushy stuff completely cleaned off, which is nearly impossible, before putting it away it freezes, causing problems with the shute rotation next time I go to use it. Have to spray it with that windshield de-icer stuff.
