Yes that is a problem with my Consumer Reports second best rated poorly
designed snowblower a John Deere single stage, seems the idiot designers
and CR dont test these units in heavy wet snow, its like rating tires
without testing them in rain. My partial soultion that does help is
Slip Plate a sprayable Teflon? that you spray in the chute and the whole
auger area, My neighbor has the same unit and mine with Slip Plate
shoots 5ft further. If you cut wet grass and it clogs the mower this
helps [ I know its 0f out today] It works on my snow shovel also.
Anything that sticks-Slip Plate
Pam might last an hour, Slip Plate lasts me a season or 2 . It is a
slipery plastic base coating which can be put on to a build of
thickness, it is also in cans to be brushed on thick. It kept my mower
clean of wet grass clinging for months.

Thanks. Know any common retail or internet places that carry it? I
did some searching and some people said some John Deere dealers have
it... but in suburban Detroit there's not too many of those.
