What kind of performance increase from knife edging the shovel and how does the pitch of the handle affect performance?

Default Whipple or Pro Charger?

Should I install a Whipple on my snow blower, or would a Pro Charger work better. I am a little concerned with blowing the drive with the Whipple.

Looking forward to having the only blown blower on the street!

I just hot rodded my snow blower. Last year I went to a 1/2 hp 1725 electric motor from the original 2 stroke. This year I went balls out with a 2hp 3450 motor! Yea Haw! Bring on the snow!

Mine seems to be working OK. My wife hasn't complained yet!

I guess I should make her some hot chocolate for when she's done.
