Re: (ET) snow

Mine does not have snow sticking on the auger either.  However since the 
slides along the auger flight until it gets the the center for discharge, 
friction that can be eliminated should help performance and keep you 
longer.  I have no proof to back this claim, it just makes sense to me.
