Most effi - cient snow blowing is accomplished when the snow is removed immediately after it falls . • For complete snow removal , slightly over - lap each path previously taken . Usa more overlap in deep snow to prevent overload - ing . • The snow should be discharged down wind whenever possible . In windy condi - tions , lower the chute deflector to direct discharged snow close to the ground , where it is less likely to blow into un - wanted areas . • For normal usage , set the skids so that the scraper bar is 1 / 8 ' above the skids , For extremely hard - packed snow surfaces , adjust the skids upward so that the scraper bar touches the ground . t4
