The paddles on a gas model snowblower hit the ground and give the machine propulsion forward. This is one of the reasons the single stage gas snowblower is easier to push. With new paddles a gas snowblower may pull to hard. There must be a reason why battery operated and electrical cord operated single stage snow blower paddles don’t hit the ground. That is why the Ego blower is hard to push especially up a small incline. I think ego needs to address this problem with the paddles.
