You will find that most of the snow blowers today are built by MTD or a few by Murray. Even the 15 year old Agway that I have is an MTD (with a Harbor Freight engine). It too has a partial plastic chute and is made out of too light gauge steel IMO. It will throw snow 20-40 feet though, depending on the amount of moisture as long as the auger shear pins are intact and the inner wheel is tight - did you check them? If it's new, it has a Briggs & Stratton engine (or a cheap foreign substitute) as Tecumseh junkers are ...... thankfully, gone.

I really like my diesel powered tractor with the 48" thrower instead of that little 24" when it get really nasty - like today
