Can i adjust the scraper on the snow blower? I keep hitting the separations on the sidewalks. It looks to be too angled currently. I want to make it more horizontal with the ground. Thanks

Open letter to EGO

I just jury rigged a snowblower slide shoe kit. I had to drill a few holes etc. It works like a charm. Please include a retro kit for all that have older machines and design a proper add-on to the current model to mount height adjusting slides.

The difference in performance is like day and night. It takes about 50% less effort to to push the blower with the slides set a half and inch lower than the scraper. It is amazing how much they help.

This should have been done a long time ago, instead you sent me 2 replacement scraper bars because the others wore down so fast. Commercially available slide shoe kits are available for under $30 and I'm sure you can design one for much less.

For such a smart company this solution is a "no brainer". No more manufacturing, shipping and handling replacement scraper bars. Most importantly of all, no more customer complaints concerning something that should have been addressed long ago.
