I have an Aeriens...

I have an Aeriens Snowblower and it seems to clog up rather easily. I have to continually stomp the chute to clear it. Can you help me? Thanks.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

This is my first contact.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No not really. I just wanted to know if I can do anything to keep the snow flying better.
