The CHUTE HANDLE ROTATION LEVER is somewhat stiff.  Can it be loosened for easier play?

Is it so stiff as to be hard to move?

There is some resistance designed into the movement so that the chute stays put while you’re blowing snow.

I purchased the EGO snow blower for my elderly father.  I use a toro single stage with a similar chute handle design and its much smoother.  Just wondering if it could be loosened a bit.  However it does not appear so.

In case there is something wrong with the chute on your particular snowblower, you could always stop by a Home Depot location and try the chute control on their display model for comparison.

You may have an issue, I just bought one of these and it has some resistance but it's not hard to move.

When you unfolded and locked the handle, make sure the black chute control cable isn't pinched at the handle hinge area (between the two handle sections).
