How do I make my snowblower throw snow farther?

Another effective way to make your snow blower throw the snow farther out is by building an impeller kit. I would recommend this method to you if you were handy with tools to build the size of impeller that you want. An impeller kit can greatly increase the blower's throwing distance.
